True Blood: The Complete First Season

 (TV) (2008)

True Blood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin, Academy Award®-winner for “The Piano”) works as a waitress at the rural bar Merlotte's. Though outwardly a typical young woman, she keeps a dangerous secret: she has the ability to hear the thoughts of others. Her situation is further complicated when the bar gets its first vampire patron - 173-year old Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer, "Quills") - and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other.

For more about True Blood: The Complete First Season and the True Blood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray release, see True Blood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Alexander Skarsgård, Valentina Cervi

True Blood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fickle viewers may not appreciate True Blood's grim-n-grainy aesthetic, but HBO has delivered a marvelous 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that faithfully captures every drop of blood, every sweat-soaked hair, and every torn tendon that graces the screen. The series' palette is immaculate: skintones are healthy and natural, primaries are lush, reds practically spill off the screen, and blacks are inky and well-resolved. Regardless of whether a scene takes place in the hot afternoon sun or in a shadowy candlelit room, contrast remains vibrant and lively; rarely succumbing to the prevailing darkness that consumes each episode. Moreover, while the aforementioned grain does occasionally interfere with fine detail, textures are sharp and earthy, edges are perfectly defined (without the help of any unnecessary edge enhancement), and delineation is relatively divine. Better still, the technical transfer doesn't suffer from any hint of debilitating blocking, banding, digital clutter, or pesky noise reduction. Faint compression artifacts occasionally swarm the backgrounds of a few poorly-lit shots (most notably during Bill and Sookie's bathtub chat), but it doesn't undermine the picture's polish and, honestly, isn't very noticeable amidst the series' grain field anyway. All things considered, True Blood: The Complete First Season marks yet another excellent Blu-ray transfer from HBO that will leave fans in a state of ecstasy and help convert newcomers to the fold.


True Blood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Even more impressive is True Blood's potent, hard-hitting DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. The lapping waters of the bayou, the hiss of spraying blood, the thunderclap of roaring crowds, the twang of a Louisianan guitar... this is what lossless audio is all about. Dialogue is clean and deftly prioritized: regardless of whether it resides in the restrained hush of Bill's voice or the thick-drawled lull of Rene's cajun accent, every word is crystal clear. Paired with reliable interior acoustics and aggressive rear speaker support, each line takes up precise residence in the wholly-immersive soundfield. More importantly, convincing ambience and invisible pans allow various characters and elements to appear and disappear from the soundstage at will, sometimes hopping from channel to channel in a chilling display of supernatural power. Room-shaking LFE tones fill out the top-tier television track, injecting a startling sense of weight and immediacy into every growl and snarl. A tooth being pulled from a screaming vampire made me wince, the sizzle of burning flesh made my stomach turn, and a particularly pulpy bloodbath left me looking from speaker to speaker. Better still, a deafening tribunal is as overwhelming for the listener as it is for poor Bill Compton -- screams erupt from every direction, feet and fists pound the ground, and the summer breeze imbues the entire sequence with an unsettling, organic quality.

Not to give in to rampant adulation, but True Blood: The Complete First Season boasts one of the most involving and engrossing lossless tracks of any television release I've reviewed. It not only rounds out HBO's stunning AV presentation, it sets the bar for future seasons, series, and Blu-ray releases.
