Rome: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Blu-ray edition of Rome features a decent 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that captures the glory and grandeur of the empire, the grit and grime of its darkest recesses, and the tireless efforts its creators invested in every costume and locale. A fine veneer of grain lends each episode a filmic quality, effectively enhancing the earthiness of the production and the warm glow of the series' blood-stained palette. Primaries are lush and rewarding, blacks are deep and well resolved, and fleshtones, ever on display in Heller's oversexed empire, are attractive. Detail is also fairly impressive, showcasing the cracked cobblestones and crumbling ruins that dot the Roman countryside. Edge definition is generally sharp and natural, textures are competently rendered, and delineation, while often at the mercy of Marco Pontecorvo and Alik Sakharov's sun-soaked lighting and bottomless shadows, is adequately revealing. That being said, intermittent softness frequently invades the series -- grain and textures be damned, I could swear noise reduction has been applied to the image -- undercutting the merits of the presentation.

Spread comfortably across ten BD-50 discs, you'd think Rome's twenty-two episodes would have plenty of room to breathe. However, artifacting regularly appears in the series' senatorial scenes, poorly lit chambers, and dust-swept skies; noise spikes violently at times; and faint banding encircles elements like candlelight. Brutus and Cassius' second season clash with Octavian's army is particularly problematic, and shows evidence of the series' budgetary limitations and source issues. Luckily, instances of significant digital clutter -- be it macroblocking, aliasing, crush, or ringing -- are the exception rather than the rule. The majority of shots and episodes are clean and stable, sometimes making HBO's video presentation as intimate and extravagant as Heller and company's production design. Ultimately, despite its issues, those mourning the series' cancellation will be pleased with the visual wonders the set has to offer. At the very least, it bests its standard DVD counterpart and establishes itself as the version of Rome to own.


Rome: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

HBO's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is less prone to inconsistencies. With billowing, lossless fervor and notable reproduction of every soundscape detail, David Cohn's sound design and Jeff Beal's score have never sounded better. Dialogue efficiently inhabits the center channel, but often ventures into the surrounds to fill the crowded Roman streets and hostile Senate chambers with legions of crystal clear voices. Even the most chaotic battlefields fail to overwhelm any element of import. Some effects are a tad tinny and others fall flat, but the majority of the production comes through with heft and presence. Likewise, while screams are occasionally trampled by clashing weapons (and vice versa), the technical integrity of the soundfield isn't undermined or called into question. With immersive interior acoustics, involving environmental ambience, and enveloping war cries, the resonant halls and bloody fields of Rome sound as authentic as the show's creators intended. Moreover, pans are smooth, dynamics frequently steal the show, and clarity is quite capable. Directionality becomes a bit too stagey whenever historical melodrama rears its bloated head -- particularly in the latter half of the second season -- but is, more often than not, precise. As it stands, HBO's lossless audio track helps justify the set's price.
