Mankind: The Story of All of Us Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Mankind: The Story of All of Us is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of History and A&E Home Video with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. The large bulk of this series looks really fantastic, though it's hard to talk about things like "accurate" color or "clarity" of the image due to so many of the reenactments and other little snippets being so artificially color graded or tweaked with digital grain and the like. For a baseline, you can look at the talking heads sequences, which are about the most "normal" looking thing in the series, and here we're offered really robust flesh tones and exceptional fine detail, helped by the fact that most of these sequences are shot in close-up. The rest of the series generally looks great as well, though there's an alarming disparity in some of the CGI. Certain elements look just fine (Ben Franklin's lightning storm's "static electricity" or the Mars landing that caps the series) while other segments, notably the Titanic, look simply dreadful, like they were cobbled together on some ancient CAD system. Generally speaking, the image is quite sharp and well detailed, though the series' emphasis on nonstop quick cut editing makes it hard to tell sometimes.


Mankind: The Story of All of Us Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Mankind: The Story of All of Us's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is as relentlessly aggressive as most History outings, but it has one salient thing to recommend it: it does not have the overpowering LFE that hobbled this series' sibling documentary America: The Story of Us. There is ubiquitous LFE roaring through the subwoofer here, but it's relatively restrained and never overpowers Josh Brolin's well done narration, which remains anchored in the front channels. Each episode has abundant surround activity, courtesy not just of the "whooshes" that seem to accompany every quick cut edit or segue, but also due to a lot of well placed environmental ambient sound effects, as well as sequences that feature large crowds and the like. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is extremely wide throughout all twelve episodes.
