Copper: Season One

 (TV) (2012)

Copper: Season One Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In 1864 New York City, Detective Kevin Corcoran returns home from the Civil War to find his daughter has been murdered and his wife has disappeared. Assisted by Sixth Precinct partner and friend, Detective Francis Maguire, and Detective Andrew O’Brien, Corcoran’s relentless quest to find justice for his family fuels his pursuit to help the unfortunate residents of Five Points, much to the dismay of his superiors.

Copper: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

When Copper was first broadcast on BBC America, I tried to watch it and gave up. The HD broadcast of BBCA on my local Time Warner Cable simply wasn't up to the demands of the show's challenging imagery, which requires rock-steady black levels and precise delineations of shades of black to prevent the imagery from dissolving into what my wife (who doesn't mince words) termed "sludge". Both Copper's production design and its digital cinematography (by top Canadian cinematographer Paul Sarossy, the usual DP for director Atom Egoyan) seek to plunge the viewer into the dirt and grime of Five Points in 1846, an era before electricity and ready access to clean water. Except for occasional trips to what is today known as Central Park and to the Freeman household in the countryside that would later become Harlem, the imagery is unrelentingly dark, even when it is colorful.

Fortunately, BBC Video's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-rays are more than up to the challenge. Watching Copper on these discs, after struggling to view it on TWC broadcasts, was a revelation. Even in the dimmest scenes composed almost entirely of blacks and browns, fine detail was evident, and faces could always be recognized. When bright or pastel colors appeared, usually in the brothels or the Fifth Avenue homes, they were appropriately saturated. Video noise was wholly absent, and the overall image had the smooth, almost film-like appeal of today's finest digital work. Copper may not be eye candy in the traditional sense, but it is demo material for the proper calibration of contrast and black levels.


Copper: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Contrary to the labeling, Copper's 5.1 soundtrack is presented as Dolby Digital 5.1 rather than lossless DTS. With no lossless source with which to compare it, I can only report that the soundtrack as delivered is certainly no slouch, with clear vocals and a distinctive sense of Copper's various environments. The reproduction of the carefully layered sound effects intended to create the crowded "texture" (to borrow Fontana's term) of life in Five Points is impressive, as is the reproduction of the Irish folk-flavored score by Brian Keane, who is best known for his work in documentaries. A lossless track would have been preferable, but its absence should not deter anyone from enjoying the many pleasures that Copper has to offer.
