Fringe: The Complete First Season

 (TV) (2008-2009)

Fringe: The Complete First Season Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Fringe revolves around three unlikely colleagues – a beautiful, young and determined FBI agent (Anna Torv), a brilliant but off-the-wall scientist (John Noble), and his sardonic, roguish son (Joshua Jackson) – who team up to investigate a series of peculiar deaths and disasters known as “The Pattern.” The trio suspects that someone is using the world as a laboratory. And many of the clues lead them to Massive Dynamic, a shadowy global corporation that may be more powerful than any nation.

For more about Fringe: The Complete First Season and the Fringe: The Complete First Season Blu-ray release, see Fringe: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Jasika Nicole, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown
Director: Norberto Barba

Fringe: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fringe: The Complete First Season arrives with a striking, at-times top tier 1080p/VC-1 transfer that pays its creators' intentions and its series' ever-evolving aesthetics tremendous respect. Tom Yatsko's palette is gorgeous -- whether dealing with the steel-toned offices of Dunham's Department of Homeland Security digs, the grimy brickwork of Bishop's Harvard lab, the sickly yellow hue of a stasis tank, or the blazing splash of red that accompanies every eruption of violence and gore, colors are bold, blacks are deep, and contrast is impeccable. More importantly, while a moderate veneer of grain and some minor contrast boosting is apparent throughout the episodes, fine detail is rarely compromised. Textures are crisp (particularly when it comes to faces, outdoor locales, and the series' most prickly beasties) and object definition is clean, natural, and sharp. Yes, softness creeps in from time to time (a shot here, a shot there), but it's always the result of the original source, not the technical transfer. It helps that the image is polished and faithful. I didn't detect any significant artifacting, digital noise reduction, aliasing, distracting crush, unintended source noise, or delineation discrepancies, and edge enhancement, while used to some extent, never becomes a problem. In fact, compared to the standard DVD edition, the Blu-ray presentation is a revelation in every way.

All things considered, Fringe looks wonderful. Stunning even. Fans will be overjoyed to see how well the series has made the transition to high definition, newcomers will find it's incredibly easy to sink into the disturbing beauty of each episode, and videophiles will be pleased with the care Warner has obviously invested in the series' video presentation.


Fringe: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Sigh. Fringe: The Complete First Season, like other recent Warner Brothers television releases (Pushing Daisies, Smallville, and Supernatural among them), underwhelms with a bland, albeit admittedly decent Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track (640kbps). The studio, it seems, is rapidly backpedaling on previous promises that every new Blu-ray release would sport a lossless audio option. As a result, Fringe's high definition debut is sure to disappoint series fans and ward off audiophiles who might otherwise bump this release to the top of their list. It's a sad state of affairs when direct-to-video drivel like Mr. Troop Mom earns a TrueHD track while Fringe, a hit series readying the launch of its highly anticipated second season, is saddled with a lossy letdown. Ah well, at least it all sounds good for a standard DD mix. Dialogue is fairly clear and intelligible, LFE output is quite strong (if not a tad pudgy), and rear speaker activity is aggressive enough to create a moderately convincing soundfield. Capped explosions and muffled creature effects are a frequent disappointment, and the entire experience is forced to contend with the usual compression-related limitations, but accurate directionality and solid dynamics keep each episode pulsing along.

I can only imagine how amazing the series' plane crashes, imploding vortexes, chase sequences, and screeching beasties would have sounded if they were backed by a top tier TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio track. Alas, we may never know for sure. Here's hoping the eventual Blu-ray release of The Complete Second Season boasts a beefier mix; one that gives Fringe regulars and newcomers something to get excited about.
