The Invisible Man: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.0 of 5

Has "The invisible Man" seen better days? Somewhere, probably, but what should be the best the series has ever looked for general home viewing is probably the worst it has ever looked, and that might be a first for a Blu-ray release. The entire series -- all of "The Invisible Man" -- has been placed on a single 50 GB disc. That's right, all ten hours, fifty-two minutes, and forty-eight seconds worth, thirteen total episodes that each run around forty-eight minutes apiece (and the pilot about twenty-five minutes longer). On one disc. What's more, the image has been horizontally stretched from its original televised aspect ratio of 1.33:1 to fill 1.78:1 high definition displays. It would be grounds for dismissal based solely on the incorrect aspect ratio, but "The Invisible Man" isn't done there. Oh no. Not even close.

No, the image appears somewhere between a worn-down VHS and a mediocre DVD in terms of picture quality, the former defining the pilot and the latter subsequent episodes. Compression artifacts are many, of course; blocky backgrounds are commonplace, but not quite as extensive as some viewers might expect given the circumstances. The image sees frozen grain that lends a lifeless, manipulated, flat appearance to the proceedings. Fine details are nonexistent, whether skin textures or the phony bulky lab equipment. Colors are dull, but serviceable. Shadow detail is poor, and black crush is frequent; even in brighter scenes, black jackets, for instance, show no definition at all. Effects shots go incredibly blurry. Some serious false coloring frequently appears, where random splotches of reds, greens, and blues dance across parts of the screen. Shimmering, jagged edges, ringing, and other maladies make frequent appearances. For those brave enough to give it a look-see, watch the part of the pilot episode where Maggio treats Westin and supplies him with his lifelike mask; it features just about every problem there is to see. The good news, if one may call it "good," is that episodes following the pilot lack evident stretching distortion and hold up a little better in terms of raw stability, clarity, and detailing (the "mediocre DVD" part of the set). They're not abysmal, but the episodes deserve better than this set's best, which is merely "watchable" and nothing more. Simply put, this is a train wreck of a Blu-ray transfer, a disaster of epic proportions. Stop keeping track now; "The Invisible Man" will be the runaway winner for worst Blu-ray picture quality of the year.


The Invisible Man: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  1.5 of 5

Considering just how much the series has been compromised to squeeze it all onto one disc, it should come as no surprise that "The Invisible Man" on Blu-ray features only a Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack and no subtitle options. In essence, the track delivers the basics, nothing more, and oftentimes much less. Still, even at its worst, the track fits the general needs of the show, conveying simple dialogue and crude sound effects with bottom-end acceptability. Dialogue is never really great in terms of clarity, placement, strength, or authenticity, but most every syllable is basically intelligible. Much the same may be said of music; it's cramped, largely undefined, but clear enough to the point that the basic rhythm is identifiable. Sound effects are clunky at best and absolutely indistinct at worst. Never does the track excel beyond borderline poor effects recreation. Background ambience sometimes drops out at random; characters may be chatting away at a restaurant with noticeable background elements and, suddenly, *poof*, they're gone. Add that some such atmospherics sound like crumpling paper, and most scenes would probably be better served were such elements simply deleted altogether. This track isn't quite as miserable as the video, but it's up there on the list of unfortunate Blu-ray audio presentations.
