Lonesome Dove

 (TV) (1989)

Lonesome Dove Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Based upon the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Larry McMurtry and set in the late nineteenth century, this sprawling epic of the Old West is the story of the last defiant frontier, a daring cattle drive, and an undying love. Lonesome Dove continues to be a treasured classic for all generations.

For more about Lonesome Dove and the Lonesome Dove Blu-ray release, see Lonesome Dove Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Danny Glover, Diane Lane, Robert Urich, Frederic Forrest

Lonesome Dove Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Lonesome Dove herds its six-hour-plus runtime onto Blu-ray in a 1080p, 1.78:1 framed transfer, and the program is spread over two discs, the first three parts of the series on disc one, and the final part one disc two. It's hard to believe that, when the show aired nearly twenty years ago, most families probably gathered around an old, bulky CRT television set, maybe even with knobs instead of buttons with which to change the channel and adjust the volume, to witness this classic series, and some, perhaps, recorded the program onto one or several VHS tapes, depending on the quality desired and speed of the tape chosen (SP, LP, or EP). Now, the series comes to the high definition Blu-ray format, no doubt looking far better now than it did on the nights of its television premiere. This transfer is a solid one, generally. Earth tones -- browns, tans, whites, and yellows -- dominate the picture, but the look of old Texas, the midwestern plains, and the Big Sky country to the north -- represent stunning vistas that aren't as sharp, defined, and awe-inspiring as those seen in Broken Trail in terms of technical quality, but shot for shot, Lonesome Dove is as breathtaking as any Western you'll ever see, and that is saying quite a bit for a genre known for its grand cinematography. There is a considerable amount of popping and speckling over the opening credits, but the film itself clears up nicely and presents viewers with a fairly solid high definition image, but with a few problems.

Grain spikes in certain scenes, especially in nighttime shots, but grain is generally not noticeable. It is in these nighttime shots, however, that the transfer fails to impress. Noisy, abundantly grainy, virtually flat, a lack of detail, and slight contrast wavering are some of the issues that crop up, and these scenes will fail to impress viewers hoping for a clean, clear image. Oddly enough, some nighttime scenes clean up considerably, and the hit-and-miss nature of dark shots, even in the same sequence, is odd. Fortunately, most of the transfer is more than acceptable and once such poor-quality scenes are gone, viewers will quickly forget them as the film moves along to a more traditionally good-looking image. Facial detail is very good. The show features an abundance of close-ups, and every line, smudge of dirt, pore, and stubble of facial hair is easy to see and looks fairly realistic. Non-human detail is generally excellent, too. Caked-on mud on wagon wheels, the lines and ridges of tree trunks and stumps, the stitches and buttons on clothing, and the wear on firearms all offer solid clarity and realism. Black levels are generally presented as a true black without a hint of gray. Blacks won't impress as they do in a film like 21, but I was generally satisfied, especially during the "cleaner" dark scenes. Although I have never seen the series before, I have little doubt that this is the best Lonesome Dove has ever looked, and both newcomers and old fans of this epic alike should be especially pleased with the results.


Lonesome Dove Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Lonesome Dove saddles up on Blu-ray with only a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. The result is a soundtrack that is adequate, but definitely not up to the epic standards of the show itself, or even the fairly good video quality as reviewed above. Lonesome Dove, generally, has a harsh edge to its soundtrack, and an audible hiss accompanies much of the program. Dialogue is sometimes lost under the louder sounds, such as a the ringing of a bell or the squealing of a pig, but in general it's clean and precise. Unfortunately, the hiss, harsh edge, and the lost dialogue are present over the show's opening minutes, making a rather unimpressive first impression, but the soundtrack manages to improve over time, although such meddlesome problems remain throughout. There is a slight surround presence, one that is audible but certainly not distinct. There are some decent discreet effects across both the front soundstage and the rear, but nothing to get excited over. Chapter ten of part one is the first time the track becomes active with the subwoofer and the surrounds. While bass rumbles and the surround speakers are put to nonstop use during a stampede, the sound is undefined and lacking in fidelity. Chapter fourteen of part two also features some deep, rumbling bass as Gus is chased by Indians. Loud to be sure, the end result is more of an undefined clump of sound rather than distinct, realistic audio. Generally, the soundtrack is acceptable, but the lossy nature of the track, dated sound effects, and a collection of minor annoyances keep this one from being a winner, but the presentation doesn't negatively effect the tone or feel of the movie, and most viewers will become so immersed in the story line that they will fail to notice most of the track's shortcomings.
