Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season

 (TV) (2011-2012)

Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Emma Swan gets the surprise of her life when Henry, the son she gave up 10 years ago, arrives on her doorstep. Returning the boy to his adoptive mother becomes complicated when Henry reveals a stunning theory to Emma. Everyone in Storybrooke, Maine is a fairytale character under a curse, and Emma - as the long lost daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming - is the one who can save them all. The story unfolds; interweaving scenes of the drama in the sleepy New England town and the the inhabitants' past lives in the world of fairy tales. The timeless battle of good vs evil is ready to begin again.

Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The high point of Disney's 5-disc Blu-ray release of Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season is its bewitching 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation. Scouring the dark forests of the series reveals some rather obvious banding, but it only pops up in the green-screened night skies of the fairy tale kingdom (most likely making it a CG-born source issue) and each instance disappears moments after rearing its ugly head. Noise spikes on occasion too, although it too traces back to the source. Otherwise, the encode is spot on. Colors are rich, rosy and lovely in Snow White's kingdom, fairer and more natural in Storybrooke and, really, as inviting or foreboding as needed. Primaries are beautiful too, skintones are nicely saturated, and black levels are satisfying (despite some smoky, muted shadows in some of the fairy tale flashbacks and real world intrigue). Detail is enchanting too, with crisp, clean edge definition (free of ringing and other anomalies), neatly resolved fine textures, and excellent delineation. But there's a trade-off. Makeup applications are almost too revealing, exacerbating every seam and shortcut. The show almost looks too polished, with a digital sheen common to many new modestly budgeted series. Still, the encode is proficient. Aside from the aforementioned bouts of banding, I didn't take note of any significant artifacting or macroblocking, aliasing, crush, smearing or anything that might tear down the fantasy the showrunners squeeze into the frame. Yes, it still looks like a TV show, and a glossy TV show at that. But you can't fault the presentation for every not-so-cinematic shortcoming or CG eyesore. If it only came down to its encode, Once Upon a Time might live happily ever after...


Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Unfortunately, it doesn't only come down to its video presentation. Disney's dutiful DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track does everything that's asked of it; the series' sound design just doesn't ask for very much. Front-heavy, front-heavy and much too front-heavy, the show relegates the rear speakers to light ambience, smooth but unremarkable pans, and very few genuinely directional flourishes, regardless of how intense intense an episode becomes. Not to be overly hyperbolic but... battles rage around the center channel. Fairy tale heroes rally around the center channel. Conversations emerge from the center channel. Sword fights and chases dash past the center channel. The Queen plots her evil plans near... you get the idea. There are a small handful of scenes per episode that border on immersive (I stress border) but the moment they end it's back to business as usual, and business is almost always conducted in the vicinity of the screen. Mark Isham's music is thankfully given leave to venture out more freely, though, as are bursts of magic and the occasional creature roar, pixie in flight, swelling storm and romp through the forest. The culprit behind such bland sonics and acoustics? Blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the show's uninspired sound design, which can be as flat as some of the CG'd fairy tale locales the actors occupy. Fortunately, dialogue is warm, intelligible and well-prioritized, LFE output is more than adequate, fidelity is terrific, and dynamics are commendable, even if they too have little to flaunt. Once Upon a Time's lossless track fails to lure listeners into the dual worlds executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have created. Hopefully the series' sound design is at the top of the showrunners to-be-improved list this coming season.
