Defiance: Season One

 (TV) (2013)

Defiance: Season One Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

<i>Defiance</i> is the first of its kind. A convergence of television and multi-platform videogame featuring an interconnected world that evolves together -- series and videogame -- into one story. The year is 2046 and more than three decades have passed since aliens arrived, changing life on Earth forever. In the frontier town of Defiance, a drifter-turned-lawkeeper, Nolan (Bowler, <i>True Blood</i>), and Mayor Rosewater (Julie Benz, <i>Dexter</i>) attempt to lead the human and alien residents through the prejudices and politics that threaten the fragile peace they’ve fought for.

For more about Defiance: Season One and the Defiance: Season One Blu-ray release, see Defiance: Season One Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Mia Kirshner, Graham Greene, Tony Curran, Stephanie Leonidas

Defiance: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

There's no mistaking Defiance for a big budget sci-fi extravaganza. Shot on a relative shoestring, the series isn't backed by HBO millions, approaching both its production design and semi-decent visual effects with frugal care. Even so, the show's computer-generated vistas, large sets, makeup and costumes look quite good in high definition; more so via Universal's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation than they did during Season One's HD broadcast. With thirteen episodes spread across three BD-50 discs, the encode doesn't exhibit any sign of significant macroblocking, banding, aliasing or ringing, other than the occasional blip or eyesore inherent to the series' modestly budgeted CG effects. Color and contrast are strong as well, with convincing skintones (insofar as the stark lighting of the newly terraformed planet allow), nicely saturated primaries and wholly satisfying black levels. Detail also impresses, with crisp edges and revealing fine textures. All told, fans and newcomers will be most pleased with the results.


Defiance: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't disappoint either. LFE output isn't exactly aggressive but it is assertive, lending weight and power to the series' future tech, alien hardware, weapon discharges, and more explosive encounters. The rear speakers are just as engaging, with notably effective directionality, smooth cross-channel pans and enough immersive know-how to make our visit to 2046 an absorbing experience. Dialogue and dynamics are on point too. Voices are clear and naturally grounded in the mix, prioritization rarely falters and Bear McCreary's score rounds out the soundscape beautifully. In fact, the only shortcoming worth mentioning -- budgetary constraints are apparent, even when it comes to the show's sound design -- doesn't really have anything to do with the mix. It's a solid lossless experience, and there isn't much of anything to complain about.
