Girls: The Complete First Season

 (TV) (2012)

Girls: The Complete First Season Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Four 20-something women in New York try to figure out what they want - from life, from boys, from themselves and each other. The answers aren't always clear or easy, but the search is profoundly relatable and infinitely amusing.

For more about Girls: The Complete First Season and the Girls: The Complete First Season Blu-ray release, see Girls: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Lena Dunham, Allison Williams (V), Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver, Christopher Abbott
Director: Lena Dunham

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

  4.5 of 5

Girls is shot digitally; IMDb says that the show uses the Arri Alexa camera, but for present purposes that's a detail. The show has the smooth, detailed look that distinguishes digital capture, and it's well-reproduced on HBO's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray presentation. The color palette tends toward the muted and subdued, except in specific environments where bold visual statements are called for, e.g., a party thrown by Marnie's PR boss or specific aspects of the wild Bushwick party in episode 7. Black levels and contrast are excellent, although one gets the sense on occasion that the digital colorist may have performed some discreet airbrushing here and there in some of the nude scenes (or perhaps it was the DP doing tricks with light). Having not watched the original broadcasts, I am not in a position to compare the Blu-ray. Then again, since I have Time Warner Cable in Manhattan, there's no doubt that the Blu-ray image beats any broadcast I might have received.


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

  4.5 of 5

The lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 delivers a nice sense of ambiance, especially in distinctive environments such as restaurants and the Brooklyn neighborhood street scenes. In venues with more enveloping sound, like the Bushwick party or the Oberlin College event seen in flashback, the surround presence is more aggressive and immersive. Girls doesn't have many occasions for discrete rear effects or obvious pans, although there's a traffic scene (I can't be more specific) where sound is a critical element. The dialogue, which is one of two essential components to Girls' soundtrack, is always clear.

The other essential component is the musical selections. The underscoring has been composed by Michael Penn. It's sparingly used, beautifully integrated and sounds great. Songs by other artists are used over the end titles (in the style of Mad Men and The Sopranos) and at key points in the episodes. They've been mixed slightly louder than is typically the case and resonate through the entire speaker array. Maybe I'm overinterpreting, but it's as if the sound mixers wanted to simulate the effect of hearing these songs through ear buds on an iPod. Whatever the intent, the bass extension is deep and the sense of immersion is powerful. A playlist can be found here.
