Robin of Sherwood: Set 2

Robin of Sherwood: Set 2 Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Robin of Sherwood: Set 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-rays in Set 2 of Robin of Sherwood are of comparably fine quality to those in Set 1, reproducing the original 16mm photography in greater detail and depth of color than has probably been seen since the episodes were first cut together and color-timed. Despite budgetary constraints, the show's final season featured even more elaborate production design and larger set pieces, such as the gladiatoral "pit" at Clun Castle in the two-part "Herne's Son" or Grimstone Abbey and the Stonehenge-like Ring of the Nine Maidens in the two-part finale, "The Time of the Wolf". (I could mention others, but I don't want to give away plot details for those new to the series.) All of these are reproduced with fine detail intact, except in shots where the original shooting format has softened the image, either because of the 16mm film or through the use of gradient filters, intense white light or similar stylized techniques used to indicate the presence of the spirit world. Grain is evident but not distracting, except for an occasional brief shot, and there's no indication of any attempt to soften or filter it away. Color shifts occur from time to time in exterior shots, but the participants in both the commentaries and the documentary repeatedly note that the weather was constantly changing; it's a minor miracle that the shots match up as well as they do.

Taken together, the two sets of Robin of Sherwood represent one of the best responses I have yet encountered to the oft-posed question of whether older TV shows can benefit from being mastered for Blu-ray. If they're handled like this, the answer is a resounding "yes".


Robin of Sherwood: Set 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Most of the episodes on Set 2 have the same English audio options as on Set 1, namely DD 2.0 (at 224 kbps) in a choice of either original mono or stereo surround. However, the first three episodes (the two-part season opener, "Herne's Son" and "The Power of Albion"), which occupy disc 1, have their audio presented as lossless PCM 2.0. No explanation is offered for this different treatment, but it may have something to do with the fact that "The Power of Albion" and part 1 of "Herne's Son" are two of the three episodes offered with a music-only option.

Regardless of format, I found the sound mix on Set 2 to be a marked improvement over that on Set 1. While watching Set 1, I found myself routinely selecting the original mono track in preference to the remixed stereo surround, which was so obviously artificial and unnatural that it quickly became distracting. (Casey noted in his Set 1 review that he was unable to select the mono track, but I did not encounter that problem.) On Set 2, however, the stereo surround has been remixed with a much lighter touch, spreading only occasional sounds of nature (trees rustling, birds calling, water running) into the surrounds, and otherwise leaving the bulk of the effects in the front soundstage. Dialogue remains clear, and the Clannad soundtrack is reproduced with sufficient fidelity, even on the DD track, to fill up the listening space and even engage the subwoofer (though gently) at key moments. These aren't mixes for showing off a contemporary home theater system, but they aren't dull either, and they're a vast improvement over Set 1, at least to my ear.
