The Sopranos: The Complete First Season

 (TV) (1999)

The Sopranos: The Complete First Season Blu-ray features mediocre video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Tony Soprano tries to be a good family man on two fronts - to his wife, kids and widowed mother - and as a capo in the New Jersey Mob. The pressure of work and family life give him anxiety attacks, so Tony starts seeing a psychiatrist, which is not the kind of thing a guy advertises in the circles Tony moves in - it could get him killed.

For more about The Sopranos: The Complete First Season and the The Sopranos: The Complete First Season Blu-ray release, see the The Sopranos: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: James Gandolfini, Lorraine Bracco, Edie Falco, Michael Imperioli, Tony Sirico, Dominic Chianese
Directors: Timothy Van Patten, Lee Tamahori, Steve Buscemi, Mike Figgis, David Nutter, Rodrigo Garcia

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

  2.5 of 5

The Sopranos: The Complete First Season features a notably inconsistent 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer; one that looks substantially better than its DVD counterpart but falls far short of expectation (as well as the quality previously established by HBO's two-stage Blu-ray release of The Sopranos: Season Six). I suspect little was done to accommodate the first season's move to high definition other than to trust in the inherent upgrade the format would offer. Sadly, the only consistent thing about each episode's presentation is the obvious edge enhancement visible in nearly every frame. Colors are more vibrant and stable, but fleshtones occasionally suffer from unnatural hues. Black levels are deeper than ever, but noise is persistent and erratic, delineation is hit or miss, and crush is sometimes an issue. Detail, though greatly improved, can be just as unreliable and unwieldy. The pilot offers slightly crisper textures than later episodes, and even that might be too generous. The next six episodes look a tad softer -- mushy faces and smeared skin litter establishing shots and close-ups -- but offer a somewhat more satisfying appearance. The last five episodes are share a bit more in common with other recent high definition television presentations, but falter due to a variety of prevailing anomalies (color skewing, contrast irregularities, shimmering, aliasing, and intermittent artifacting, among others) that give the image a digitized, over-processed appearance. There isn't a single episode that warrants a high video score.

Is the entire presentation a disappointment? Not quite. As I mentioned before, the transfer is noticeably stronger than the DVD's dated image, and still looks fairly good considering the age of its episodes and the production limitations of the series' first season. As it stands, those who own the DVD set will net a solid upgrade, but newcomers will be underwhelmed with the results.


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

  4.0 of 5

Matters improve with HBO's faithful DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. While it isn't as refined or aggressive as the LPCM mixes that accompany the studio's Season Six Blu-ray releases, most any difference should be attributed to the first season's original sound design, not the technical proficiency of its lossless track. Once again, the pilot comes up a bit short, but the remaining twelve episodes offer fans well-prioritized dialogue, weighty LFE output, and suitably involving rear speaker activity. Tony and Carmela's arguments sound as crystal clear as their hushed conversations, and interior acoustics, though two-dimensional on occasion (primarily throughout the pilot), are on point. Moreover, crowded restaurants, bustling parties, and busy nights at the Bada Bing effectively envelop the listener, injecting subtlety into everything from clanking silverware to blaring club music. If I have any complaint it's that I found myself tapping the volume up and down, typically from episode to episode, but also whenever a chaotic hit would be followed by a mumbled line of dialogue. Still, it's a negligible problem that hardly warrants concern. All things considered, The Complete First Season sounds great and should easily please both fans and newcomers.
