The Office: Season Five

 (TV) (2009)

The Office: Season Five Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent 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 Five Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

I keep various weaponry strategically placed around the office. People say, "oh, it's dangerous to keep weapons in the home or the workplace." Well I say, "it's better to be hurt by someone you know accidentally than by a stranger on purpose."

The Office: Season Five features a tricky, at-times uneven 1080p/VC-1 transfer that either suffers from minor technical issues or, as is more likely the case, embraces the series' faux-documentary aesthetics so well that it merely appears to suffer from said shortcomings. While colors are vivid and blacks are well-resolved, skintones are often muddy, flushed or, in some shots, both. Likewise, detail is impressive at times, underwhelming at others. The series' mock-interview segments look fantastic -- crisp facial textures and sharp object definition combine forces to produce a steady stream of striking shots -- but most of the on-the-fly action (or lack thereof) struggles with softness, resolution inconsistencies, and the show's various video sources. Unfortunately, it's difficult to tell what aspects of the transfer should be attributed to intention and what might possibly be the result of a problematic presentation. Even the appearance of errant artifacting, source noise, and other digital anomalies left me wondering whether I was witnessing a clever tweak or a fleeting fluke.

My gut tells me all of the transfer's "issues" are a product of intention -- particularly since everything on display enhances the immersiveness of the experience -- and I've scored the transfer accordingly. Ultimately, fans will be pleased with the results (as well as the fact that the Blu-ray edition handily bests its DVD counterpart) and newcomers will quickly accept the visuals for what they are. I, for one, was completely satisfied.


The Office: Season Five Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Nobody steals from Creed Bratton and gets away with it. The last person to do this disappeared. His name? Creed Bratton.

Like its video transfer, Season Five's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't deliver the sort of sparkling lossless mix Blu-ray owners normally associate with the format. Air hiss, noise, occasionally muffled voices, and camera shuffling invade the soundscape on a regular basis, overwhelming dialogue and other effects. However, while such problems would normally be signs of lazy, lackluster, or low-budget sound design, The Office revels in these shortcomings. Once again, intention is the name of the game. The series is presented as a documentary and the audio track follows suit, embracing all of the unexpected mishaps and technical flaws viewers expect from, you guessed it, a documentary. Intentional problems aside, the tone and tenor of the track itself is relatively impressive. Interview segments feature clean, intelligible dialogue, murmuring voices and crashing kitchenware can be heard in the distance, and the rear speakers help create a convincing soundfield brimming with believable interior acoustics and ambient effects. It helps that directionality is spot on, LFE output is commendable (especially during more chaotic scenes like Dwight's fire drill), and the series' theme song is rich and weighty.

All things considered, Universal's DTS-HD MA track certainly won't turn heads, but it carefully and meticulously exhibits all the qualities of a real office-based documentary. Fans of the show couldn't ask for much more.
