Top Gear: The Complete Season 17 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Complete Season 17 features a solid 1080i/AVC MPEG-4 encode, the highs and lows of which will be very familiar to anyone who's barreled through a previous Blu-ray release of Top Gear. Minor but pervasive aliasing is the biggest issue videophiles will note, followed by intermittent artifacting and a bit of occasional noise. Then there are the in-vehicle shots, captured via lower quality, standard definition cameras, all of which pale in comparison to the footage captured in the studio and in the moments before the trio climb into whatever hatchbacks, sports cars or machines of destruction they assemble for any particular episode. Otherwise, there isn't much to complain about. Colors are bright and lively, skintones are spot on, black levels are nice and deep, and detail, though inherently hit or miss, is quite good, especially when it comes to closeups of Clarkson, Hammond and May on the Top Gear couches. Fans of the series will easily shrug off the presentation's shortcomings, but newcomers may have to go through an adjustment period. Approach with measured expectations and enjoy everything the encode has to offer.


Top Gear: The Complete Season 17 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

As is the case with previous season releases, Top Gear stalls out with a standard Dolby Digital stereo track. While true to its broadcast presentation, BBC's two-channel mix is flat, thin and underwhelming, not to mention a far cry from what it could be. Imagine an Aston Martin whipping from speaker to speaker, the drone of an Italian sports car approaching from the rear, the roar of a V12 engine, the studio crowd laughing from all sides... imagine the series with LFE support, rear speaker throttle, and a fully immersive soundfield. Not that the Dolby Digital mix is a thirteen-car pileup. Voices are clean and clear, noise and hiss are only an issue when the hosts head outdoors, and every engine has serviceable power, every tire a decent screech, every burst of applause or laughter passable punch. It's far from ideal, sure, but no one should skip Top Gear just because it doesn't feature a lossless track.
