Spartacus: Gods of the Arena Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

"Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" features a near flawless 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. The show was digitally shot and features heavy post-production computer manipulation; the 1080p transfer captures the strengths and weaknesses of each and holds true to the series's visual stylings and natural appearance. Though the image can be a touch flat, fine detail is strong-to-exemplary; human skin textures are incredibly revealing: facial lines, flaws on naked bodies, the texture of scars, and even wrinkly lines around joints are plainly visible with striking sharpness and clarity. Likewise, the transfer never fails to impress by showcasing every scratch on armor, every ding on weapons, and the finest little structure of sand in the arena. Unfortunately, the sometimes rough digital shots -- generally of longer-distance elements -- prove disappointing in 1080p, but thanks to the technology used in the making of the show and not at the fault of the Blu-ray disc. Colors are as pleasant as the detailing; though much of the show primarily dabbles around dull earth shades, splashes of vibrant coloring -- particularly in clothing -- appear wonderfully lifelike. Banding and blocking are non-factors, and noise is but minimally invasive. Flesh tones are accurate from the palest to the darkest face. Black levels are strong but tend to waver on occasion, going a bit gray from time to time. This one's all about the exceptional detailing, though; even the slow motion shots capture a dumbfounding level of lifelike texturing, making this at least on-par with the stellar Blu-ray release of "Blood and Sand."


Spartacus: Gods of the Arena Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

"Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" thrusts onto Blu-ray with a high quality Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The track is potent and dynamic; music is exceptionally clean and well spaced across the front while enjoying a satisfying -- but not overwhelming -- surround support structure. The presentation handles the sounds of battle with pinpoint clarity. Various sound effects are wonderfully crisp and engaging, whether the whacking of wooden practice swords on shields, the clanking of a metal weapon on heavy armor, or the sound of gushing blood and ripping flesh. The back speakers do carry a heavy load throughout the season; battle sequences spring to life with the sound of cheering crowds and struggling fighters as they dodge weapons slashing through the speakers. On that note, the only real fault occurs during some of the more rowdy arena sequences; here, dialogue can be a bit hard to fully discern under the surrounding din, but the spoken word is usually crisp and firmly entrenched in the center speaker. All in all, this is a powerful, thrilling soundtrack that's the perfect companion to such a visceral television program.
