Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection

 (TV) (2008)

Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Where in the world can you find the strangest and most deadly sharks? Why do sharks sometimes prey on humans? When are you most likely to be attacked? And what can you do to avoid becoming shark food? If you're hungry for answers, join the experts and some of Discovery Channel's bravest hosts as they go swimming with the ocean's most feared predator to answer all your biting questions.

For more about Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection and the Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection Blu-ray release, see Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.



Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Better than the DVD and the original HD broadcasts, Shark Week nevertheless suffers some minor issues from having six hours of 1080i, AVC-encoded material crammed onto one BD-50. The bandwidth can't handle all the traffic, and while it's not distracting by any means, there are some instances of noticeable macroblocking. Digital noise and other artifacts seem confined to darker dives, though, and while edge enhancement is present at times, there's nothing cringe inducing. Fans of Shark Week likely know what they're in for—HD footage (with some SD archival stuff) from a variety of programs and source materials, some better than others. Mythbusters, for instance, looks a good deal cleaner than Dirty Jobs. Planet Earth this ain't, but that's okay. Colors are reproduced realistically—the deep ocean blues look particularly great—and the only tonal mishaps I noticed were some white balance issues during Mysteries of the Shark Coast, when the crew was shooting inside their ship with incandescent lighting, but had natural sunlight flooding into the cabin as well. For what it is, Shark Week is sharp and sufficient, though it's never going to be HD demo material.


Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Jacques Cousteau's The Silent World is no misnomer, as there's very little going on audio- wise beneath the cresting whitecaps of Shark Week's oceans. There are some bubbles and bass-heavy swooshes added in post, of course, but the underwater footage does little to pump sound out of the disc's DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround track. Fortunately, the on-land and ship segments give the mix some breathing room. Like the video quality, the audio varies from source to source and some of the programs are more dynamic than others. These are TV mixes through and through, though, so don't expect bombastic, cinematic splendor from the sound. Rear channels are used for music and some ambience—the lapping of waves, bubbly gurgles, etc.—but the presentation is largely front-heavy. All of the programs rely heavily on narration, and voices are pleasingly articulated and clear, though wind and waves can occasionally muffle the on-location chatter. While Shark Week doesn't have the biggest sound, it's acceptable for TV work, and I was never distracted by any overt audio slip-ups.
