The Americans: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Americans: The Complete First Season is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This series delights in recreating the "lo-fi" world of the 1980s, and I almost have to wonder if some kind of conscious decision was made to carry that over into the look of this series, for despite being shot with the Arri Alexa, this is one of the more curiously soft, drab, low contrast shows I personally remember having seen recently. Episode after episode is built on scenes shot in what appears to be natural, and often very low, light, adding a murky haze to even daytime interior scenes. Colors are rarely more than anemic, though there are occasional welcome exceptions (see screenshot 13). Even given a perhaps "artistic" decision to give the show a desaturated appearance, the tendency to shoot so much of the series in such low light ultimately defeats a lot of what a high definition experience can offer. Fine detail is very good when there's decent lighting in close-ups, but often midrange shots are unexpectedly soft looking.


The Americans: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Americans: The Complete First Season features an often nicely immersive lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that really springs to life in some of the action sequences (like the exciting opening scenes), but which still provides better than average surround activity even in the supposedly calmer domestic environments the series depicts. One of the best things about the show, and the sound mix in particular, is Nathan Barr's propulsive but brooding score, which is splayed throughout the surrounds quite nicely. Dialogue is cleanly presented and fidelity is excellent in this very enjoyable track.
