Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season

 (TV) (2012)

Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Walter White is a down-on-his-luck chemistry teacher struggling to make ends meet for his wife and physically challenged son. Everything changes when Walter receives a startling diagnosis: terminal lung cancer. With only a few years to live and nothing to lose, Walter uses his training as a chemist to cook and sell crystal meth with one of his former students. As his status grows, so do his lies, but Walt will stop at nothing to make sure his family is taken care of after he's gone, even if it means putting all their lives on the line.

Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Breaking Bad has never been the epitome of top-end Blu-ray picture quality; sure all the seasons look reasonably good, but not five-blue-B material to be sure. Season five's first half release is no different. The show displays adequate details, if not sometimes brilliant details. General faces and clothes and odds and ends and manmade locations never dazzle, but there's a fundamental HD quality that brings out if not the best then certainly as much yield as high definition fans expect of a high end television program. Close-up shots fare remarkably well, sometimes almost to a fault (extreme close ups of shaved heads) and sometimes to picture quality brilliance (the fine details and textures of desert terrain, particularly noteworthy throughout episode five). Colors, likewise, can be brilliant or, approaching the other end of the scale, rather vanilla by HD standards. Those green and yellow pest control tents that cover houses throughout the season really sparkle, as does Saul's bright red shirt and loud tie seen in episode one and the yellow cook suits Walt and Todd wear when they're making meth. On the other hand, darker environments don't show much life. Interiors at Jesse's and Walter's homes both don't show much brilliance, and the palette looks a bit dull even considering the absence of brighter lighting. Black levels are prone to minor crush and spikes in noise. Flesh tones, however, remain fairly neutral. There are some small bugaboos of note. For instance, a few shots scattered throughout the season look rather poorly defined and not particularly stable. Elsewhere, light shimmering is evident, for example along the rims of Walter's glasses during a shot when he opens a trunk near the beginning of episode eight. It's not the pinnacle of Blu-ray picture quality, but it gets the job done.


Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack is frequently active and often intense. From the heavy notes of the title card shot to the wide, crisp, and well-defined stage of music throughout the rest of the show, score plays with a powerful but balanced presence for the duration. The track enjoys plenty of ambient support from a wide variety of sources. It brings several locations to impressive sonic life, including the light background of a Denny's restaurant to start the season, clanking silverware and light music at another restaurant in episode eight, or gusty winds in the middle of episode five. Heavier support elements are just as precise and impressive, though they certainly play with a fuller body and a more aggressive posture. Gushing water and alarms at a car wash, hefty operating machinery in episode three, and a working warehouse in episode four all do well to surround the listener in the show's most crucial environments. Perhaps the most interesting and memorable sound comes from the powered magnet in episode one. The hum gets so strong and deep that it nearly scrambles the brain and pops the ears while rattling the theater to its limits. Certainly, dialogue reproduction is faultless, flowing easily from the center. This is a strong presentation that will leave listeners satisfied no matter what's happening in the show.
