Vikings: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Vikings was shot in HD video by John S. Bartley, a veteran of such stylized storytelling as Lost and The X-Files. The color palette has the slightly desaturated look often used for historical tales, but certain colors have been emphasized in post-production, e.g., the rich green of grasses and forests in both Scandinavia and England, the deep red of blood, the bright yellow and orange of fire and the intense blue of Ragnar's eyes (their natural color, according to Standen and Winnick).

Each of the three 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-rays in Fox/MGM's set of the first season contains three episodes (in various versions, as discussed under "Special Features"), presumably sourced from digital files, and they all look fantastic. The sequences shot in direct sunlight are sharply detailed and free of noise or artifacts. Those shot at night or indoors are authentically and darkly lit, by candlelight or torches, but the blacks are solid, and the shades of black and gray are well delineated to allow detail to emerge from shadow. The lovingly re-created period detail in clothing, weaponry, decor, utensils and other practical objects can be seen in its full glory, and so can the blood and grime of battle.

Thanks to some updated BD-Java code that choked my BD-ROM drive, I was unable to obtain complete BDInfo scans or calculate average bitrates, but if there were any compression artifacts, I certainly did not see them. Vikings is one of the finest video presentations of a TV series I have had the pleasure to review.


Vikings: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The most pervasive presence on the Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is the haunting score by Trevor Morris, who also scored The Tudors for Hirst. Morris' score takes its cue from the song "If I Had a Heart" by Fever Ray, which plays over the stylized opening titles, and invests each episode of Vikings with a brooding, intense presence. The score expands throughout the surround array and reaches down into the low ranges for deep bass response, where it readily mixes with some of the more impressive sound effects, such as the thunder and lightning of a major storm during Ragnar's first crossing to England.

Crowd noises at the Earl's court and various other scenes, the sounds of the sea and, of course, battle sequences engage the surrounds in subtle but effective ways that help immerse the viewer in the experience. The dialogue is clear and well-prioritized, when it's in English, but there are smatterings of old Norse and Saxon throughout Vikings as a reminder that the characters spoke languages long since dead. These lines are subtitled.
