Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

As it frequently does with video-originated hi-def material, Image Entertainment has released Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special in a 1080i presentation encoded with the AVC codec. However, the 1080i treatment does not seem to have created any noticeable issues. There were no visible combing artifacts while the image was in motion (although screencaps may reveal them), and the image did not lack for sharpness or detail. The cheerful holiday lighting, which has been separately designed for each puppet character, shines with apt saturation, so that the essential primary colors glow with holiday cheer. Blacks are solid and deep, which is important for Dunham's preferred stage garb (a contrast with the more garish look of his "cast"). As usual, Image has cut corners for a BD-25, but the program is sufficiently short, and the extras sufficiently brief, that compression artifacts are not a problem.


Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Considering the possibilities, the DTS-HD MA 5.1 for Christmas Special is something of a disappointment. This may be related to the TV origins of the project. One doesn't expect Dunham's act to be anywhere but front and center on stage, even when there's musical accompaniment by Brian Haner's "Guitar Guy". However, with audience reaction so critical a part of the experience, one could reasonably expect a more involving and immersive use of the surrounds than one finds in this mix. TV sound designers still seem far too reluctant to use the rear channels for anything other than the odd sound cue, but that shouldn't be. Standup is entirely about the relation between the comic and the audience. Why not use the technology of discrete 5.1 sound to capture that relation for accurate reproduction on home video?

In any case, the reproduction on the track is certainly blameless in terms of clarity. Dunham and his artificial co-stars are clear and intelligible, and Guitar Guy's licks pack the requisite impact.

It should be noted that the track is TV-friendly, and that all the language bleeped for broadcast remains bleeped here. There seems no good reason why an unbleeped track couldn't have been included as an option, especially since two separate tracks are available.
