Portlandia: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Portlandia is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Video Service Corporation with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Despite Armisen and Brownstein's contention of the show offering superb production values, at least relative to its paltry budget, the video quality here, while well above average, is still overall often on the soft side, with a somewhat pallid palette that never really pops very well, even in high definition. While the show has that nice indie look of an on the fly show shot on HD video, it lacks consistent contrast and also suffers from black levels that tend to vary fairly broadly from scene to scene. Still, a lot of the well lit close-up material offers at least passable fine detail, and while the show isn't the most magnificent looking high definition production out there, its very lo-fi ambience actually plays rather well into its whole countercultural leanings.


Portlandia: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Portlandia only features a lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack, which suffices moderately well for the largely dialogue driven proceedings here, but which still comes up short in the series' fairly frequent use of music. (It's kind of odd that the main menu features an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 version of the theme). The standard Dolby track has decent enough fidelity, though there's next to no real stereo separation. Dynamic range is fine, though again the series' self-imposed limitations keep this track from ever being reall over the top with regard to wide variances in amplitude. Hopefully the second season will up the ante and give us a lossless soundtrack to enjoy.
