Slings and Arrows: The Complete Collection

 (TV) (2003)

Slings and Arrows: The Complete Collection Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In the fictional town of New Burbage, legendary theatrical madman Geoffrey Tennant returns to the New Burbage Theatre Festival, the site of his greatest triumph and most humiliating failure, to assume the artistic directorship after the sudden death of his mentor, Oliver Welles. When Geoffrey arrives he finds that Oliver is still there, in spirit anyway, and with his guidance (and often in spite of it) Geoffrey attempts to reconcile with his past while wrestling the festival back from the marketing department. Despite a bitter leading lady, a clueless leading man, and a scheming general manager, he manages to stage a remarkable production of Hamlet -- the play that drove him mad.

Slings and Arrows: The Complete Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Ay, there's the rub. The first season of Slings & Arrows was shot in standard definition and has been upscaled here into a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation. As you'd expect, the image is quite soft and even chunky at times, with no fine detail to speak of, frequent bouts of thick video noise, and black levels that are hazy and grayish. That said, this is the best the material can and will look given how it was shot, so I see no cause to complain. (The back of the case also clearly states that the first season is upscaled.) Thankfully, though, the production switched to high definition for seasons two and three, and the picture improves dramatically. The image is still nowhere near as crisp as that of current shot-on-video shows, like Sons of Anarchy, say, but detail improves enough that close-ups display refined textures, and longer shots—like the actors on stage, seen from the perspective of the audience—look much less soft. Noise is also significantly reduced, so that it really only becomes noticeable during the darker scenes, and black levels seem deeper and less prone to murkiness. Color throughout the series is realistic—that is, not exceptionally vibrant—and skin tones are consistently natural. Some typical video anomalies still exist—mild macroblocking, blown highlights, etc.—but nothing that rises to the level of distraction. While Slings & Arrows may not look as clear and pristine as bigger budgeted major network shows, it's clear that this Blu-ray release from Acorn Media is faithful to source, which is really the best possible outcome.


Slings and Arrows: The Complete Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The first two seasons of Slings & Arrows are presented in DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 stereo, which may not allow for any surround sound immersion, but certainly suits the nature of the dialogue-driven show. Voices are mostly balanced well in the mix—there are a few scenes when I felt the need to bump the volume up—and the sound effects, like the wind, rain, and thunder at Geoffrey's Théâtre Sans Argent, are as potent and crisp as they need to be for TV broadcast purposes. The third season makes the move to a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround presentation, and while the multi-channel expansion is appreciated, it really isn't necessary. The rear channels are used to strong effect during a few key sequences—most notably the production of King Lear—but most of the time they go unused. When the show utilizes music, as it often does to underscore certain emotional beats, the score sounds relatively full and clear. The most important thing to note, though, is that there are no real audio slip-ups here—no drop-outs, hisses, or crackles. This is clean, no-frills audio.
