Sanctuary: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 23Mbps), Sanctuary: Season Two offers increased consistency in comparison with the visual quality of the season one box set, but still suffers from several of the same deficiencies. It's amazing how the shift from green screen to real sets has helped in the strength of fine object detail -- no longer requiring the hazy image smoothing often found throughout season one. Even during scenes when green screen backgrounds are utilized, the melding of real actors on digital backgrounds provides a strong sense of depth, revealing an increased budget and more effective use of computer generated imagery. From a color standpoint, the palette incorporates a vivid spectrum full of naturalistic tones that never descend into drab territory. Likewise, black level depth rarely wavers into gray territory, creating wide differentiation between the lighter and darker shades within the image. There are still occasional moments of minor aliasing found within the digital backgrounds of a handful of scenes, but aside from that one problem, I never noticed any obvious anomalies in the digitally sourced image.

Taken as a whole, the visual quality of the Sanctuary: Season Two comes much closer to reaching the heights I anticipated from the use of RED camera technology (with 4 times the resolution of Blu-ray), though there are still minor set-backs that prevent this from hitting the upper echelon of Blu-ray treatments.


Sanctuary: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Continuing with the wildly entertaining sound design that's become a benchmark of the series, this box set incorporates a lossless audio mix that's sure to rattle the light fixtures of your home theater. Between mammoth underwater monsters wreaking havoc, hordes of zombie-like humanoids prowling a future wasteland, and multiple run-ins with vampire-like soldiers, there's rarely a moment to be lost on such trivial things as dialog. All joking aside, this is a fantastic mix that really nails the epic scope of the series, while never failing to extend the influence audio can have on one's enjoyment of television entertainment. Unlike season one, I hadn't witnessed this second Sanctuary outing during the initial television run, removing any point of reference for comparing the highly compressed lossy version and the one we're given here. However, it's not difficult to suggest the result is revelatory, allowing the robust lows to combine with precise clarity for an end product that ranks quite high among broadcast fare. Moving on to spatial separation within the mix, you'll notice an effective level of immersion during gun battles and fist fights, though the true strength of the rear channels can be found in the creative environmental effects utilized in the series. As we'd assume, the budgetary constraints of a show such as Sanctuary prevent the audio design from rivaling a theatrical summer blockbuster, but I've remained impressed at the lofty stabs at high-level creativity shown over and over again.
