Fringe: The Complete Second Season

 (TV) (2009-2010)

Fringe: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray delivers great video and 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 Second Season and the Fringe: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray release, see Fringe: The Complete Second 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
Directors: Norberto Barba, Joe Chappelle, Brad Anderson, Jeannot Szwarc, Akiva Goldsman, David Straiton

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

  4.0 of 5

While the Blu-ray edition of Fringe: The Complete First Season selflessly spread twenty episodes across five discs, The Complete Second Season packs twenty-three episodes onto just four discs. The result? The series' latest 1080p/VC-1 transfer isn't quite as impressive as its predecessor, although it still manages to come pretty close. Minor compression issues are the chief culprit, mingling with Fringe's already noisy disposition and invading everything from out-of-focus backgrounds to brief establishing shots to a few mismanaged closeups. But don't shoot off any angry e-mails to Warner just yet. The fleeting artifacts that appear never amount to a significant distraction -- videophiles will have to scour the image to find them, and even then the anomalies won't be as apparent on most small to medium displays -- and generally blend in with the series' grainy veneer. They also aren't pervasive, and only affect a handful of scenes per episode. Otherwise, negligible ringing and intermittent smearing are the only lingering complaints I have, both of which trace back to the showrunners' judicious use of edge enhancement and shot-specific noise reduction.

"Minor." "Fleeting." "Negligible." I can't stress those words enough. The second season's presentation may not be perfect, but it's still quite remarkable. Colors are bold and vibrant, transforming every mangled corpse and frozen head into a fittingly gruesome sight. Skintones are warm and lifelike, contrast is striking throughout, and black levels are fairly deep and satisfying (despite the fact that underground lairs, moonlit forests and shadow-cast warehouses are prone to increased noise). Detail is outstanding as well, and many a closeup looks fantastic. Take note of the pores spilling down Broyles' cheeks, the weathered wrinkles that grace Walter's face, the rough-hewn texture of Peter's five-o-clock scruff, the fine hairs that stir on Olivia's neck... when the stars of Tom Yatsko's photography align, the second season is a stunner. Filmic softness creeps in, but it's rarely unwelcome; special effects are a tad waxy, but it's hardly the fault of the transfer. If anything, screenshot scientists will assume the series doesn't pack as much visual punch as it does. Again, unless you plan on pausing each scene, putting every frame under the microscope, and tackling the impossible task of distinguishing every speck of natural noise from every tiny compression blip, The Complete Second Season won't disappoint. To the contrary, it outclasses a number of other high-profile television releases and should please fans and newcomers alike.

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

  4.0 of 5

Brace yourselves, dear audiophiles. I'm about to go against my better judgment and award Warner's 640kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track... sigh, a relatively high score. I wanted to cling to principle, I did. I want the studio to grant their television releases the lossless audio mixes they deserve, I desperately, desperately do. I know full well that many believe any high praise only serves to justify the further use of lossy audio, and for any part I have in that, I'm sorry. But Fringe's second-season sonics sound so good -- not chest-thumping, DTS-HD perfect, mind you, but so good -- that I can't, in good conscience, award the track anything less.

Dialogue is bright, clean, and carefully prioritized in the series' busy, often intense soundscape. Yet lines rarely lose their luster, and music and effects aren't pinched, tinny or choked. (A handful of anomalies creep in from episode to episode, but none that require a hot-blooded rant.) LFE output is strong and earthy throughout (albeit slightly spongy at times), and dynamics are better than I anticipated; separation is impressive, pans are creepy-crawly smooth and directionality, though somewhat restrained on occasion, is precise. Moreover, rear speaker activity is lively and engaging, effectively wrapping atmospheric noise, believable acoustics, Michael Giacchino and Chris Tilton's pulsing score and immersive environmental ambience around the listener. Is it all as crisp and nuanced as lossless hounds are accustomed? Not quite. But unless you know exactly what you're listening for, the differences aren't as obvious as you might expect. (At least not in this particular case.) To be clear, I can only imagine how high a lossless track would have catapulted Fringe, and I almost feel obligated to drop my score a wee bit more to compensate for the short-sighted use of a standard Dolby Digital mix. But The Complete Second Season's audio experience, lossy or no, is too commendable to treat so harshly. I will say this though: chances are, a DTS-HD Master Audio track would have been a top tier television beast.
