Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Let me just float in these hyperbolic waters for a bit longer. Wow. Though often uttered and often written (quite liberally I might add), there simply isn't a more succinct and accurate way to convey the quality of HBO's 1080p/AVC-encoded image than the word "wow." But, we've a job to do, so let me wade out of these waters and evaluate Game of Thrones' stunning video presentation on a more exacting basis. From a professional perspective, there's also a word that best conveys the precision and prowess of the HBO's technically proficient encode: wow. It's frightening how easy it is to lose yourself in the high definition world of Westeros. Colors are immaculate, primaries are bold and visceral, black levels are dark and ominous, skintones are dead on (pale in the frosty north, lovely in the summery south), and contrast and clarity are nothing short of impeccable. Shadows hang heavy on occasion, but only as much as its cinematographers and showrunners allow. Aberrant crush isn't an issue and any loss of detail occurs within the original photography, not the Blu-ray presentation. Fine textures are impeccably resolved, edge definition is crisp and clean (without any egregious ringing to worry over), delineation is revealing, and every inch of the series' lavish production design is showcased. Closeups feature the grizzled stubble, wind-carved wrinkles, and heavy brow lines of the warriors and assassins of Westeros; freckles and errant hairs spill down the faces of the queens and princesses of the kingdoms; and Dothraki blood and mud spatter with pixel-piercing perfection. What little softness exists is strictly of the filmic variety. What few eyesores there are trace back to the source, nothing more.

And there's nary a mishap to be found. I noticed two negligible instances of banding and a few slivers of judiciously employed edge enhancement, but nothing that might cast doubt on the integrity of the image. Significant artifacting, noise, aliasing, smearing and other uninvited guests are nowhere to be found, and compression limitations never came to bear on the presentation. As far as I'm concerned, this is, hands down, the finest encode HBO has given us and, considering the studio's sterling reputation, that's saying something. Game of Thrones already looked good when it was broadcast in HD, but the Blu-ray edition takes the murder, betrayal and plotting to a whole new level. This is the must-have release of 2012 and it's only February. Expect to find this one sitting atop my Top Ten list this December.


Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

HBO's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't miss a beat either. From the howling winds of the Wild to the rustling trees of Winterfell to the lapping seas of the southern kingdom, Game of Thrones sounds every bit as magnificent as it looks. Dialogue is warm, grounded and intelligible, whether whispered, spoken, shouted or coughed through a mouth of blood. Dynamics follow suit, embracing the faintest crunch of disturbed snow to the thundering clatter of a charging horse. Low-end output is fierce and hearty, with a love of battle and an almost brutal devotion to bold, violent courses of action. The ground quakes, oceans roar, the skies rumble, armies clamor and nations fall, all with the full, unwavering support of the LFE channel. Rear speaker activity is just as impressive. Voices echo convincingly within an old stone chamber, high grasses sing in nearby fields, castle walls groan, heavy doors creak, legions of soldiers talk in the distance, winds blow from channel to channel with ghostly ease, and houses and fortresses, cramped and spacious, sound exactly as each one should. Directionality is arresting yet never overplays its hand. Pans are smooth and unassuming... until springing a trap on unsuspecting listeners. And the soundfield is completely and wholly immersive, creating a series of believable vistas, locales and destinations brimming with as much sonic impact as with visual power. Make no mistake, the Blu-ray edition of Game of Thrones attacks on all fronts and walks away with the crown.
