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

  4.5 of 5

The Universe has always been one of the more visually stupendous series on television, let alone on The History Channel. If the first SD-DVD releases were hobbled by nonanamorphic transfers, that egregious error has been righted since the series made it to Blu-ray. Since The Universe consists so widely of digital imagery, there's no question that the AVC encoded 1.78:1 image is gorgeously sharp and detailed, with amazing, often mind blowing colors. Some of the CGI effects are simply jaw dropping, with huge nebulae seeming to reach up and through the screen, and shafts of light wonderfully illuminating the far reaches of space. Things can get a bit more problematic with some of the source archival footage, some of which seems clearly blown up from 35mm and even 16mm. These archival pieces often are very soft and somewhat degraded, with the expected amount of grain and damage. Contemporary interview segments are sharp and well defined, with great color and detail. This is an awesomely visual series and I'm happy to say that The History Channel has come to its senses with high definition content and is providing stellar (pun intended) product.


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

  3.5 of 5

I'm sure there will be some among you who will cry for a surround track to this series, but at least we are offered an excellent uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo mix that is, to say the least, robust. This is one of the noisiest documentary series probably in the history of television. The viewer-listener is bombarded with a virtual nonstop array of sound effects, from whooshes and thuds to explosions and outright imaginary sounds fostered by extraterrestrial phenomena. In fact the sheer onslaught of all this aural material can get overwhelming at times, and I wished once or twice that the series would just calm down and give us the glimmering visual side of things without the sturm und drang of the soundtrack. What is here is top notch, with great fidelity and an exuberant dynamic range. There are some fun stereo effects at times, as when a whizzing star zooms from right to left. Narration is always front and center, as are all the on screen interviews, and everything spoken is clear and very easy to hear.
