Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season

 (TV) (2012)

Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

The chaotic aftermath of an alien attack has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force.

For more about Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season and the Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray release, see Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Will Patton, Connor Jessup, Colin Cunningham

Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Complete Second Season's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation is more polished than its problematic VC-1 encoded first season counterpart, if only a bit. Whether that's due to differences between the VC-1 and AVC codecs, improvements in the series' source, a bump in budget, or more tender loving care isn't really clear. What is clear is that the minor macroblocking that plagued the first season presentation has been reduced significantly (reduced, not entirely eliminated), and other issues -- black level consistency, delineation, and crush -- have been marginally improved (marginally, not dramatically). Yes, there are a few pesky source-based invaders. Noise attacks and retreats at will, CG effects are sometimes accompanied by irritating but ultimately minor anomalies, and crush still hampers shadow detail. But, on the whole, the series' second season is a more agile freedom fighter than its predecessor. Even though colors are largely muted, with bleached contrast leveling and damp primaries, the Falling Skies palette retains its personality and pulse. Detail is quite satisfying too, with clean, well-defined edges, revealing textures and nicely resolved closeups. Ringing and aliasing are held at bay, as are any serious bouts of banding. In fact, episode after episode rises above the series' television roots with more visual oomph than your ordinary basic cable sci-fi actioner. It's decidedly TV, mind you, and lacks cinematic heft. But it has style and presence, and its high definition presentation rarely disappoints.


Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Complete Second Season's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track nudges past its first season cousin too, if only because the series' sound design is a bit more cinematic (or at least more convincing) this go-round. Dialogue is clean, clear and precisely prioritized, despite some chaotic battle scenes that render a few lesser quips and cries unintelligible, and dynamics are especially notable, thanks to a slightly less generic, more atmospheric soundscape. The LFE channel is armed to the teeth as well, with plenty of punch and power to back those punches, and everything from machine-gun fire to explosions to alien machinery has enough heft, weight and presence to take action scenes up a notch. Rear speaker activity is still a touch too sparse considering the peril in which the humans often find themselves, directionality isn't as exacting as it could be, and Noah Sorota's score is a tad aggressive, domineering even. That said, the second season offers a leaner, meaner sonic experience than I expected (having reviewed the first season), and fans will be pleased with the decidedly solid results.
