National Parks Exploration Series: The Black Hills and The Badlands - Gateway to the West

 (2012)

National Parks Exploration Series: The Black Hills and The Badlands - Gateway to the West Blu-ray features mediocre video and poor audio in this poor Blu-ray release

Nestled in the heart of America’s Great Plains are the distinct landscapes of a sacred land that beckons the visitor to enter the nation's mysterious and glorious west. A land of soaring pinnacles, deep canyons, hidden caves, national monuments and countless wildlife sanctuaries. It is also the place of the inglorious death of famed gunslinger, Wild Bill Hickok and the most sacred spot for the Lakota Sioux.

National Parks Exploration Series: The Black Hills and The Badlands - Gateway to the West Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

National Parks Exploration Series: The Black Hills and The Badlands - Gateway to the West showcases a bland 1080i, 1.78:1-framed transfer. This is a lower-grade image that's sometimes blocky and very lifeless. The glossy video sheen harms the natural beauty of the area. Skies tend to wash out and are sometimes littered with massive blocking. General images range from rugged to ragged. Close-up shots of rocks reveal decent textures, ditto some similarly up-tight shots of animals. Distant shots of trees and grasses often look smeary and undefined. Still, it adequately captures the essence of its subjects and does a fair job of showcasing the grandeur of the general area. This will be fine for a small classroom TV.


National Parks Exploration Series: The Black Hills and The Badlands - Gateway to the West Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

National Parks Exploration Series: The Black Hills and The Badlands - Gateway to the West features a workmanlike Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack. Narration is sharp and piercing, quite loud at reference volume. General clarity is adequate, and the narration remains grounded in the center channel. Ambience, too, is rather harsh. Chirping birds sound canned rather than natural. Gusty winds are crunchy and undefined. Music lacks crispness, though it is adequately spaced across the front. As with the video transfer, this will be fine coming from classroom TV speakers; home audiophiles won't like much of what they hear.
