House of Cards Trilogy

 (TV) (1990-1995)

House of Cards Trilogy Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

House of Cards is a spell-binding dissection of naked ambition, greed and rampant hypocrisy in the corridors of power. The series documents in thrilling detail the rise of Tory Chief Whip Francis Urquhart, a man with unwavering contempt for those with "no background, no bottom." With the downfall of Margaret Thatcher, a bitter internecine power struggle ensues within the Conservative Party. Urquhart schemes more devilishly than Iago to depose Thatcher's colorless John Major-style successor. And even Machiavelli would baulk at Urquhart's methods. Any and every act -- including murder -- is legitimate and the ends very much justify the means.

House of Cards Trilogy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The bulk of the House of Cards trilogy fares well on Blu-ray thanks to a solid 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer that, for the most part, remains true to its source. Colors are a touch skewed and dusty, with the distinct look of an early '90s BBC television film, but skintones are warm and fairly natural, primaries have some staying power, delineation is decidedly decent and black levels are deep and satisfying. And while To Play the King suffers from over-lit shots, flushed faces, over-saturation and hot contrast, it too appears to be a rather faithful representation of the 1993 sequel's original photography. Fortunately, its offending scenes are the exception rather than the rule, just as it is the lone exception in the trilogy's video presentation. Otherwise, grain is intact, detail is surprisingly strong (in spite of the films' inherent softness) and noise reduction and other cleanup/remastering techniques have been employed within reason and only result in a few negative side effects. Artifacts, banding and aliasing are held at bay too, and slight crush, minor ringing and a hint of color bleeding (primarily in King) are the only real issues to report. All things considered, the trilogy looks quite good. From best to worst, with individual scores: The Final Cut (4.25/5), House of Cards (3.75/5) and To Play the King (3/5).


House of Cards Trilogy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

All three films in the House of Cards trilogy feature proficient, well-preserved but ultimately underwhelming DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 tracks. Dialogue is clean and clear, and only subject to some minor prioritization problems. The rest of the soundscape follows suit. Noise, hiss and muffled effects are kept to a minimum, and the shortcomings that do present themselves trace back to the original audio elements. All told (and there isn't much to tell), each stereo mix is serviceable and light on distractions.
