Downton Abbey: Season 2

 (TV) (2011)

Downton Abbey: Season 2 Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

From the sinking of the Titanic to the end of the First World War, the secure and ordered world of the beloved estate is rocked as the lives of the inhabitants of Downton Abbey are shaped by intrigue, crisis and romance. Season one sets a lavish stage of beautiful scenery and architecture, and a class structure rigid yet just beginning to give way at the beginning of the 20th century, and of the Great War. Season two picks up two years later, in 1916, as the war rages on over Europe, and grand Downton Abbey has been converted into a convalescent hospital for wounded veterans of the brutal combat. In season 3 the Great War is over and a long-awaited engagement is on, but all is not tranquil at Downton Abbey as wrenching social changes, romantic intrigues, and personal crises grip the majestic English country estate.

For more about Downton Abbey: Season 2 and the Downton Abbey: Season 2 Blu-ray release, see Downton Abbey: Season 2 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, Dan Stevens, Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt

Downton Abbey: Season 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation is a balanced BD event, great with fine details emerging from brightly lit sources. Facial textures are especially agreeable, capturing differences in age and emotional nuance, giving the stupendous performances an HD clarity they deserve. It's a softly shot show occasionally employing limited lighting, but a feel for household decoration remains in place, treating the ornate setting with the respect it deserves, giving viewers a full read of time and place. Colors also make a generous impression, finding costuming and outdoor adventurers supplying a rich, even palette, useful for character identity and combat wounds, giving the show an unexpectedly violent snap. Skintones are natural and expressive, seizing porcelain features with grace. Shadow detail is the only real downfall of the presentation, with solid blacks robbing dark costuming of detail, while distances and low-light encounters lack edge delineation. Also of concern is a playback glitch early in episode four, which skips roughly 15 seconds of footage. This could be an individual problem with my copy, but it's wise to be aware of it.


Downton Abbey: Season 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix is a contained aural presentation reflecting a series that doesn't push too hard on the senses. Leading with dialogue exchanges, the track is perfectly clean, giving life to different accents and speeds of thought, landing insults and confessions with satisfactory sonic aim, sounding full and pleasing. Scoring isn't obtrusive, calmly supporting the dramatics until asked to take the lead, moving along with a crisp piano-based sound that fuses ideally to the onscreen action. Atmospherics are thick but welcome, introducing changes in setting and weather with sound effects that are a little overcooked, but satisfactory. WWI encounters are cranked up a touch to assist in the element of surprise. It's a simple show about human beings, leaving audio flourishes limited, finding a comfortable position without distortion.
