The Office: Season Eight

 (TV) (2011-2012)

The Office: Season Eight Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Based on the popular British series of the same name, this faster-paced American version follows the daily interactions of a group of idiosyncratic office employees at paper company Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch via a documentary film crew's cameras. Regional manager Michael (Steve Carell) thinks he's the coolest, funniest, best boss ever - which, of course, makes him the uncoolest, most obnoxious and annoying boss as far as his staff are concerned. Salesman Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) has always loved receptionist Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) and loves sabotaging his cube-mate, the know-it-all Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson). Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) started as a young, smart, self-possessed temp, but quickly figured out the real office politics despite Michael's attempts to instill the official point-of-view, and gets himself a job at corporate HQ in New York. The staff is rounded out by quiet Phyllis Lapin Vance (Phyllis Smith), beaten down by the working life Stanley Hudson (Leslie David Baker), office alcoholic Meredith Palmer (Kate Flannery), up-tight Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey), formerly closeted homosexual Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez), stocky and uncouth Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner), ambivalent kleptomaniac Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton), Sad Sack HR rep Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein), persistently love-struck Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling), icy corporate manager turned Michael's girlfriend Jan Levinson (Melora Hardin), former Stamford branch denizen and Cornell graduate Andy Bernard (Ed Helms), warehouse foreman Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson), and Pam's ex-fiancé Roy Anderson (David Denman)

The Office: Season Eight Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

If you have a block of Office seasons sitting on your shelf, you know exactly what to expect from Season Eight's deceptively unremarkable 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation. The series has never been an out-and-out Blu-ray stunner; it's mockumentary premise, handheld footage and off-location camerawork all but guarantee as much. But spend any amount of quality time with any of the show's high definition releases and you'll almost immediately recognize how faithful-to-a-fault it all actually is. The eighth season encode is no different. Interview segments are more striking than anything else; colors are bright and lively, skintones are lifelike (albeit a touch pink this season), black levels are decidedly decent and detail is commendable. Other shots and scenes vary based on the cameras being used and the aesthetic being pursued, but still look as good as should be expected. Car-mounted cameras, standard definition footage are littered with the most distractions, of course, but it too is designed to bolster the ongoing joke, unwieldy artifacts, unsightly aliasing and all. Even in Season Eight's visually problematic stretches, though, the presentation impresses. Surprising primary punch, unexpected texture clarity and other visual treats await the diligent videophile, and the encode remains proficient throughout. There aren't any bouts of worrisome macroblocking, banding, ringing or other significant anomalies, even if, frankly, it would be next to impossible to know if there was a issue to report. When something odd appears, it's simply dismissed; we assume it's a natural part of the mockumentary presentation and think nothing of it. That said, even when Season Eight disappoints and underwhelms, Universal's encode does not. Fans will once again be pleased.


The Office: Season Eight Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The series' sound design is intentionally low-key and sometimes low-fi as well, traits Universal's solid DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track embraces wholeheartedly. Dialogue is clean, clear and exceedingly well-prioritized -- up-selling the documentary shtick with precision and ease -- and every rustle, bump, beep, crash and office equipment whir sounds as if it's nestled within a realistic business environment. Even acoustics, which are on the surface stuffy and unrefined, are quite convincing on the whole and play their role brilliantly. Everything about the show's audio is in on the joke, in fact. LFE output is restrained but effective, rear speakers are assertive without being overly eager, dynamics deliver despite being less than remarkable, and pans and directionality know when to hold back and when to charge ahead full force. It's a constant balancing act being played, between the energizing and the mundane, and it works wonders. Like previous season releases, Season Eight's lossless audio is everything it should be. No more, no less.
