Torchwood: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Torchwood: The Complete Second Season boasts a striking 1080i/VC-1 transfer that, despite its interlaced nature, looks great in high definition. Sure, the series' grainy aesthetic and unsteady action sequences may turn off some (as will the "i" in 1080i), but I found the entire presentation to be worth serious praise. Colors are bold and engrossing, skintones are exceedingly lifelike, and contrast is vivid. It helps that black levels, while a tad overwhelming at times, are deep and savory, blessing the image with solid depth and dimensionality. Even nighttime scenes deliver effective, well-delineated visuals, free of unintentional noise and crush. Did I mention fine detail is crisp and rewarding? Edges are nicely defined (without the help of any major edge enhancement) and textures are unexpectedly refined, production a thoroughly attractive presentation. Artifacts, banding, and aliasing are kept to a bare minimum (rarely making any appearances), the series' sometimes heavy grainfield is intact, and the set's four BD-50 discs give the episodes plenty of room to breathe. All things considered, this Second Season release looks fantastic and, negligible hiccups aside, should easily please fans and newcomers alike.


Torchwood: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Complete Second Season's 2.0 Mbps DTS-HD High Resolution 5.1 surround track (not to be confused with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mix) is loud but slightly shallow, exchanging volume and bombast for proper sonic prowess. Unlike its video transfer, the audio track is at the mercy of the series' television roots and budgetary constraints. While it all sounds well and good, it lacks the absorbing immersiveness and nuanced rear speaker activity featured in other higher caliber TV releases. I'm sure casual listeners will be more forgiving, but many scenes are anchored to the front soundstage, injecting ambient atmosphere and acoustic properties into the mix only when they're absolutely necessary. Thankfully, dialogue is clean, warm, and intelligible (albeit occasionally thin), and LFE support is weighty and involving (especially when the pulsing score enters the arena). It's a solid track, to be sure, but one that will leave stringent audiophiles with a few nagging complaints.
