The Universe: The Complete Season Five Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

As you might expect from a series that is comprised of so much CGI material, The Universe: The Complete Season Five's AVC encoded 1080p image (in 1.78:1) is sparklingly clear, brilliantly sharp and lushly saturated. The CGI elements throughout much of this season are really spectacular, though there are some hamhanded moments (a spaceman floating in space looks like something out of a 1950's B movie, and the depiction of the demise of the dinosaurs isn't much better). Stars erupt, spacecraft zooms through oily black darkness and any number of obscure scientific theories are illustrated with excellent animation, and it all looks amazing for the most part. There's actually less archival footage in this season than in some previous years of The Universe, and that means moments of blown up 16mm or 35mm grainy footage is at a minimum. Contemporary interview segments all look great, with good color, clarity and sharpness.


The Universe: The Complete Season Five Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Universe: The Complete Season Five gets a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix for its soundtrack, and though a surround mix probably would have been quite effective for this effects laden series, what's here is robust, sports excellent fidelity and best of all isn't completely overrun with nonstop LFE. That said, this is a relentlessly busy track, with almost omnipresent sound effects. Whooshes, zings, crashes and smashes all populate each episode and it can get a bit tiring if you watch a bunch of these one after the other. There's really great shuddering lows throughout many episodes of this season, and in fact all of the sound effects are imaginatively handles, providing a wealth of sonic variety. Narration and onscreen interviews are all extremely clear.
