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

  3.0 of 5

AMC has farmed out Blu-ray duties to 20th Century Fox, who have given each of The Killing's thirteen episodes a satisfying-but-shy-of- spectacular 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, spreading them out over three discs. While a lot of shows are moving to an all-digital workflow, The Killing is shot natively on 35mm and boasts a noticeable--sometimes extremely noticeable--layer of filmic grain. Seattle's gray skies are abuzz with it. It appears like snowy static over out-of-focus areas of the frame and sometimes even visibly mottles skin textures. The film stock used is chunky even in daylight scenes, and the grain spikes considerably at night, along with what looks like a fair degree of compression noise. There are a handful of scenes where the level of grain/noise seems to fluctuate wildly even within a single shot. While this can be somewhat distracting when it happens--quite literally, it would take me out of the story and make me wonder what what was causing it--it thankfully doesn't happen often enough to be a persistent picture quality concern. For the most part, clarity is decent--especially in closeups--but the heaviness of the grain structure keeps the image from resolving the finest possible details. And there's not much that can be done about that. DNR would only smear out remaining texture, and edge enhancement would give the picture a harsh, digitalized look. Props to Fox for steering away from those sorts of post- production tactics. On the plus side, I do love the film's moody cinematography, which keeps colors muted for the most part--greens are an exception--while playing up Seattle's overcast climate. Black levels occasionally infringe on shadow detail, but never drastically so, and contrast is strong. Overall, this is a slight bump up from 1080i broadcast quality, but it's not quite among the best-looking TV shows on Blu-ray.


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

  3.5 of 5

Each episode of the show features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and I have no qualms here other than the observation that the rear channels really aren't utilized as fully as they could've been. In some respects, the sound effect design is great--distant foghorns, the squawk of seagulls, pouring rain, car tires moving across wet pavement--but there are times where the sense of immersion could've probably been realized more completely. The surround speakers only occasionally build up a fully convincing multi-directional soundscape, and most of the effects stay rooted up front. Then again, this is a TV series and not a cinematic experience, so perhaps I should temper my expectations. When the rear channels are used, they're used well, especially when they're broadcasting the show's very Twin Peaks-y score of deep, ominous synth pads. The music sounds quite nice when cranked to a decent volume. Most importantly, dialogue is always clearly recorded, nicely balanced, and easily understood. The discs include optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles, which appear in large white lettering.
