Heroes: Season 3 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

If you've already suffered through the wildly uneven, terribly inconsistent video transfers that accompanied the Blu-ray releases of Heroes: Season One and Season Two, you probably have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Season Three's underwhelming 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation. Rampant noise, unpredictable contrast leveling, and unnatural skintones abound (flushed faces and splotchy cheeks are regular offenders); blacks are frequently crushed, whites are often overheated, and delineation is as unyielding as they come; and detail ranges from crisp and refined to spongy and indistinct. It's a shame too. For every sharp close-up that appears with gorgeous primaries and striking textures in tow, a disappointing shot lumbers onto the scene, murky colors and waning clarity in hand, undermining the legitimate merits of the presentation. Granted, many of these shortcomings can be traced back to the series' original source -- as well as its creators' intentions -- but the results are jarring, ugly and, above all else, disappointing. Thankfully, Universal has addressed some of the complaints the high definition community at large had with its Season One and Season Two presentations. Specifically? Artifacting is no longer a significant issue, banding isn't as noticeable, and edge enhancement, while still a constant distraction, isn't as glaring and persistent as it once was.

If the majority of Season Three's scenes looked as stunning as its best shots, I'd probably be more forgiving of such wayward mishaps. However, when every scene (and sometimes every shot) is so drastically different than the last, it becomes quite a chore to simply sit back, sink in, and enjoy the presentation. Technically sound? Indeed. The stuff of top tier legend? Hardly. Heroes' HD broadcast might impress some TV fans, but its Blu-ray transfer is too ungainly and unwieldy to warrant any serious praise.


Heroes: Season 3 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Do you enjoy low-end frequencies? I know I do. That's why I'd like to introduce you to the rumbling world of Heroes, a booming, bass-heavy utopia where footsteps often sound like falling trees and fists sound off with the same intensity as collapsing buildings. Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track certainly doesn't lack power -- the series' isn't-it-all-shocking musical score packs more punch in three duh-duh-ahs than most releases offer up in the midst of a sixteen car pileup -- but it does lack prowess and precision. Directionality isn't nearly as accurate as I expected, dialogue is a tad pudgy for my tastes, and the rear speakers, while quite active throughout the proceedings, bounce between overly aggressive and somewhat passive. I have no doubt many fans will be pleased with what they encounter, and I'll be quick to admit my detachment from several episodes left me more than enough opportunity to nitpick everything I was hearing, but Season Three's mix rarely impressed me. Still, most every line is intelligible and reasonably prioritized, pans are smooth, dynamics are strong, and LFE output is, as I mentioned before, beefy and assertive. Above average at best, passable at worst, Heroes: Season Three gets the job done, but little more.
