Water Life: Water's Journey

 (2008)

Water Life: Water's Journey Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Water's Journey includes these five programs: The Wandering Water, The Quiet Flow, Protective Water, Fleeting Water, and Jungle Water. Witness the power of the water cycle in all its phases, and its vital role in creating and perpetuating ecosystems that astound the imagination. Tropical rainforests are home to plants and animals still unknown to us. Rivers are alive with the hubbub of little colonies. In the desert, only the toughest and most adaptable creatures survive.

For more about Water Life: Water's Journey and the Water Life: Water's Journey Blu-ray release, see Water Life: Water's Journey Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.



Water Life: Water's Journey Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080i utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 28Mbps) Water Life: Water's Journey suffers from a more pronounced version of the same problem that plagued the first disc in the series. The problem I'm referring to is some readily apparent ringing around edges, which don't maintain the stability we've come to expect on Blu-ray. For an example, look for the geyser sequence early in the first episode, paying close attention to the outline of the rocks that immediately surround the light colored pools. Rather than a consistent line, you'll notice the lines shimmering as if the transfer is incapable of clearly identifying where the line should be. Out of the entire disc, I noticed this the most during episode one, which also happens to contain the most static landscape shots. On the positive side, the level of detail on the disc is very impressive, with crisp textures and well-defined inner edges. The color spectrum is equally proficient, with bright, naturalistic tones creating a lovely 3-dimensional pop that will make you feel as if you're right there with the camera crew. Likewise, black levels offer excellent depth, and contrast never demonstrated a shred of wavering differentiation.

Aside from the disappointing byproduct (ringing) of choosing 1080i for the transfer, I was still quite pleased with the visuals on the disc and firmly believe most viewers will be happy with quality on display.


Water Life: Water's Journey Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

My expectations were already tempered going into this release, since I was aware from the first Water Life disc that all we'd receive is a Dolby Digital 2.0 track with English narration. Similar to the first disc, the clarity, volume balance, and incorporation of environmental audio effects are all excellent for a front-heavy lossy mix, but I still feel a lossless mix could have sounded a bit more robust. The one thing I did notice this time around, is the incorporation of a select number of musical choices that appear time and time again throughout the episodes. It probably isn't noticeable if you choose to watch the series one episode at a time, but since I'm rolling through them in a relatively brief period of time, it became slightly tedious hearing the same music repeatedly (the best example would be watching the intro to a television episode fifteen times during a twenty-four hour period). As it stands, the audio track is serviceable (or even a little above average) for a television documentary, but doesn't seem to be a fitting inclusion considering the capabilities of the Blu-ray format.

In an odd move, there are zero subtitles included on the disc, and English is the only language choice for the narration. I'd assume there's adequate space on the disc to include additional Dolby Digital audio tracks or subtitles for non-English speaking viewers, so it's a bit puzzling to have such a lack of options. Especially when you consider the production is aimed at international distribution and carries a message that should be heard globally.
