The Simpsons: The Thirteenth Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Season 13 marked the end of an era for The Simpsons, as it was the last full season to use traditional cell animation. However, while this season was shot on film, it was likely assembled using a standard definition digital intermediate, meaning that a true high definition presentation is out of the question. What we have here, then, is a 1080p/AVC-encoded up-convert. Before you heave a sigh of exasperation, though, read on. It actually looks quite good, and the up-rez yields a stronger image than if you were to let your Blu-ray player up-convert a DVD. Naturally, the picture isn't going to be as crisp and defined as the latter half of season 20—when the series switched to high definition —but the material definitely benefits from being on Blu-ray. Outlines are a little soft, but clarity is much better than you'd imagine when you hear "upconvert of an animated television show." Color is fantastic as well—bright, vivid, and mostly uniform. There were only a few instances when I noticed any fluctuations. Of course, the other huge benefit to Blu-ray is less compression. Aside from some slight blotchiness and minor banding on occasion—usually in the characters' bright yellow hues—there are few compression-related artifacts, and none that I would deem distracting. Plus, with more storage space on Blu-ray, there are fewer discs to swap/keep track of/potentially lose. Some doubt the merits of up-converted material on Blu-ray, but in this instance, I'm sold.


The Simpsons: The Thirteenth Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Another reason to choose Blu-ray over DVD for this season is the presence of DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks on every episode. Granted, the show's somewhat spartan sound design never takes full advantage of the lossless codec, but at least you're getting the best possible version of each episode's soundtrack. Obviously, dialogue is the main element of each mix, and it's handled perfectly—clean, always intelligible, and comfortably balanced. You'll never miss a joke because of poor mixing or a muffled line. The 5.1 surround sound implementation, however, rarely lives up to its name. Rear channel output is infrequent and inconsistent. Even when cross-channel movements are used—like Artie Ziff's helicopter zipping from side to side—they stand out from the otherwise front-heavy presentation. Rather than seeming like an integral part of the audio, pans and directional sounds seem to call too much attention to themselves, if that makes sense. No big deal, though. You're probably not watching The Simpsons for an intense audio experience. Where it counts—dialogue reproduction, a balanced mix—this Blu-ray set delivers.
