Human Planet: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

While the terms "1080i" and "VC-1" will no doubt unsettle a small handful of Warner's most obstinate critics, it's important to remember that it's the tangible quality of a video presentation, not the jargon that litters a disc's tech specs, that makes a jaw-dropping high definition image everything it is and more. And Human Planet, dear readers, is a jaw-dropper. From the gorgeous rolling waves in "Oceans" to the fertile canopies in "Jungles" to the iron-wrought earthtones of "Cities," every billowing blue, bountiful green and heavy shadow is striking. With the BBC Natural History Unit turning its cameras on mankind, I'm also pleased to report that skintones are warm, lifelike and oh-so-carefully saturated, revealing the beauty of the many indigenous peoples showcased throughout the series. Detail also leaves a lasting impression. Textures are delicate and refined on the whole, edges are sharp and satisfying (barring a few bouts of minor source-born softness), and little is left to the imagination. Many a stunning closeup reveals the tiniest pores and thinnest hairs. The smallest stones and droplets of water are refined and neatly rendered. And fragile leaves and flakes of rust are given as much attention as the forests and cities they accompany. Moreover, significant artifacting and aberrant noise never invade the image, aliasing and ringing are kept to a bare minimum (and only interfere here and there, primarily in "Jungles"), and nearly negligible banding only appears on the rarest of occasions (even then, it never amounts to an outright distraction and typically only creeps into murky underwater sequences). From beginning to end to every behind-the-lens featurette in between, the Blu-ray edition of Human Planet captures the true majesty of the planet and its foremost residents by way of the NHU's breathtaking photography and Warner's proficient presentation.


Human Planet: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

No, Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't going to rattle the windows, wake the kids, or rouse the neighbors. Like nearly every documentary series before it, Human Planet is a narration-driven trek across the globe that doesn't deviate from tradition. However, the studio's lossless mix is an exceedingly enveloping experience sure to bring Earth's aural majesty streaming into your home theater. Narrator John Hurt's grandfatherly voice wavers with the soft, well-mannered astonishment of a kindly old man, but remains perfectly clear, smartly grounded and impeccably prioritized throughout the series. But unlike many documentary series, Human Planet immerses the listener in every environment it explores. Oceans surge with power and waves crash all around; ritualistic cries and songs rise above the soundfield and avalanches thunder down mountains; reindeer herds shake the ground and sandstorms overtake every speaker. Through it all, LFE output is strong and steady, rear speaker activity is effective and engaging, and directionality and dynamics will leave audiophiles nodding. Granted, Hurt's voice subdues the most chaotic outbursts, but it's entirely expected and entirely welcome. As it stands, the only shortcomings that made their way into my notes involved source inadequacies, less-than-ideal recording conditions, and the severity of the elements. Otherwise, Human Planet sounds as amazing as it looks.
