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

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC, and granted a 1080i transfer The Universe: The Complete Season 1 arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of A&E Home Video.

I assume that those of you with HD satellite or cable subscriptions have already seen at least one episode of this marvelous show. And you have to admit that even if you aren't particularly interested in astronomy The Universe boasts some mighty impressive visuals. As far as I am concerned this Blu-ray set does all of them justice. Contrast for example is incredibly strong allowing some of the more colorful scenes to reveal texture and detail that are absolutely breathtaking (Jupiter: The Giant Planet for example had me literally glued to the screen). The actual color-scheme on the other hand is probably amongst the best I have seen on a documentary. It is lush and incredibly rich truly transforming these well-crafted episodes into captivating short films that you won't tire looking at. As mentioned above clarity and detail are of superb quality and during some of the animated footage where stars burst and asteroids explode you will literally be immersed into a sea of colors with countless variations. The non-animated footage on the other hand where numerous interviews and lectures are offered is vibrant, detailed, and very pleasing and therefore it also makes for a terrific viewing experience. The actual quality of the prints provided by A&E Home Video is also as impressive. I looked for but did not spot a single scratch or speck (excluding of course some of the archival footage where the original source isn't in perfect condition). (Note: The three discs containing the 13 episodes of "The Universe" are Region-Free meaning that you will be able to play them on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


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

  2.5 of 5

The only audio track that you will find on this Blu-ray disc is: English Dolby Digital 2.0. It is somewhat disappointing that a PCM track of some sort isn't included here but in reality I really do not believe that there would be much of an upgrade if A&E Home Video were to include a PCM 5.1 mix. Aside from the ambient tunes that pop up here and there, as I mentioned earlier, the majority of the content is dialog driven. For me personally the wealth of information these series provide was much more important and I definitely did not notice the lack of a more elaborate soundtrack. Finally, I did not detect any hissing, drop-outs, or audio distortions to report here. Please note that optional English subtitles are not provided.
