The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

If the first two seasons of The Vampire Diaries already have a home on your shelves, rest easy: The Complete Third Season's 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation doesn't depart from its predecessors. The ongoing struggle between bright, sun-kissed mornings and sinister, shadowy nights produces some inconsistencies, most of them stylistic or inherent to the series' photography, but color richness and saturation is one of the more striking aspects of the at-times grim, ink-slathered image. Woodland greens and browns are earthy and natural, hearthside oranges are lovely, and reds make a visceral slash and splash. Skintones are suitably warm and lifelike too (or pale and bloodless as necessary), black levels are deep and ominous (too deep actually, more on that in a moment), and detail ranges from revealing to revelatory, with exceedingly well-resolved textures, refined edges and remarkable closeups. Even when darkness falls, fine detail is largely undeterred, despite the fact that delineation suffers mightily, noise spikes a bit and crush takes a heavy toll. (Oh, the crush.) I also noted instances of extremely minor artifacting and banding, but none of it amounted to the sort of problem that would leave videophiles brandishing pitchforks and torches and forming a bloodthirsty mob. All in all, fans will be more than satisfied and casual onlookers will be pleased.

The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Warner, having at long last made a fuller commitment to lossless audio last year by granting the vast majority of its television releases DTS-HD Master Audio mixes, continues its immersive TV streak with another strong, sinewy DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround track. Scenes centered around the teens' mundane school lives and ensuing high school melodrama tend to be ever so front-heavy -- specifically when the vampiric soundscape settles and snarky teen banter surges -- but ambience remains quite good regardless, with convincing acoustics and the subtlest of directional effects. When the vampires storm the screen, though, look out. No, Diaries isn't an action-packed series. And no, every encounter isn't as enveloping as the next. But when a vamp, werewolf, hybrid or witch abandons their romantic pursuits and bears their fangs, the soundfield roars to life. The LFE channel infuses the series with power and presence whenever called upon, rear speaker activity lunges for the jugular (without being too canned or too chaotic), and dynamics are precise. It only helps that dialogue is intelligible and carefully prioritized at all times, with only a handful of lines being overwhelmed by the ensuing supernatural conflicts. Ultimately, Season Three's DTS-HD MA track doesn't drain each episode of life; it grants each one new life, making the stories that much more engaging and involving.
