The Simpsons: The Complete Twentieth Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Simpsons Movie notwithstanding, The Complete Twentieth Season marks the television series' first foray into high definition. But because the changeover didn't officially occur until the season's midway point, the 2-disc Blu-ray edition offers two decidedly different visual experiences. Both feature a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, both are presumably faithful to their separate sources, and both feature bold, vibrant colors. However, the first nine episodes (presented in their original aspect ratio of 1.33:1) suffer from mediocre clarity, inconsistent contrast, image instability, frequent aliasing and noticeable banding, none of which bodes well for high definition releases of earlier seasons. Thankfully, the remaining episodes (presented in 1.78:1 widescreen) look substantially better. The series' lineart is much cleaner (although the characters occasionally appear disconnected from the backgrounds), its picture more steady and reliable, and its detailing far more revealing. Aliasing and banding are still prevalent, but few other issues hinder the proceedings. As it stands, viewers should brace themselves for a truly schizophrenic season, the first half of which looks strikingly similar to the set's standard DVD counterpart, the second half of which delivers a more worthwhile presentation.


The Simpsons: The Complete Twentieth Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fox's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is more reliable, but has difficulty overcoming the limitations of the series' oft-times two-dimensional sound design. That's not to say the mix doesn't pack any punch, just that it doesn't have the opportunity to land many blows. First the good. Dialogue is crisp and clear from episode to episode, voices remain perfectly prioritized regardless of what madness Springfield tosses at our beloved townsfolk, and towering robots and collapsing buildings receive reasonable support from the LFE channel. Regardless, the entire season is a front-heavy affair. Even when the rear speakers dive headlong into the fray, they come up short, awkwardly mingling with the rest of the soundfield. Directionality is unremarkable and front-to-back pans are a tad stocky, especially when compared to the smooth side-to-side pans that allow hurtling ships and hurried school children to dart convincingly across the screen. Is there room for improvement? In the mixing studio perhaps. Ultimately, anyone familiar with the show will be pleased with Fox's lossless offering. It isn't going to garner much praise, but it does a fine job handling what little it's given.
