The Universe: The Complete Season Two

 (TV) (2008)

The Universe: The Complete Season Two Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Travel through the galaxies and explore extraterrestrial phenomenon with this sweeping examination of the universe from The History Channel, which uses state-of-the-art computer technology to take viewers up close to distant planets and stars. Topics include black holes, comets, alien galaxies, star deaths, the moon, the interior of the sun and much more. All 13 episodes from the first season are included, plus the bonus episode "Beyond the Big Bang."

For more about The Universe: The Complete Season Two and the The Universe: The Complete Season Two Blu-ray release, see the The Universe: The Complete Season Two Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

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

  3.5 of 5

Similar to the Blu-ray release of its first season, The Universe: The Complete Season Two features a commendable 1080i/VC-1 transfer that, more often than not, does a fine job capturing the visual splendor of the heavens. Comets and stars are rendered with vibrant primaries, the depths of space is dark and foreboding, and detail is crisp and revealing. I was continually surprised by the clarity of the series' textures, and impressed by the stability of its CG sequences. Granted, a hodgepodge of sources, from archive footage to interview segments, make for an uneven viewing experience, but anyone who's ever watched a documentary will be completely unfazed by any such inconsistencies. If I have one major complaint, it's that the technical image is weak in the knees. Noticeable artifacting, frequent crush, heavy banding, and minor aliasing pop up from time to time to spoil the otherwise attractive presentation. Still, considering the nature of the production, The Universe looks pretty good.


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

  2.5 of 5

Unfortunately, like its predecessor, The Universe: The Complete Season Two, is hindered by an underwhelming PCM stereo mix that fails to envelop the listener as readily as the series and its video transfer grabs hold of a viewer. Each episode's narration is clean but hemmed in, effects are passable but pinched, and the series' musical score is boisterous but restricted. Worse still, the front-heavy sonics aren't immersive enough to match the stunning visuals. I would have loved to hear solar flares blaze past my ears, to sit boldly amidst the destruction of an imploding star, or cower at the aural majesty of a massive black hole. Instead, I was abandoned on the outskirts of such phenomenal events, longing to hear them as they were meant to be heard. Ah well, I suppose the PCM mix gets the job done well enough... it just would have been nice to sink into the universe rather than watch it unfold before me.
