Video: How Do the Discs Look?
This isn't a perfect set of 1080p transfers, but I must admit to being surprised at how solid the show looks on Blu-ray. Black levels are dark and steady from start to finish, and the series has a wonderfully lush color palette that lends this set a fancy, elegant presence. Detail quality is less reliable - some sequences come across with pitch-perfect crispness, others are slammed with smear - but there are no major compression artifacts to mention, and aliasing is kept to a minimum.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mixes here are also perfectly serviceable, providing the show a lived-in, inviting quality. Dialogue is always audible, atmospherics - while not rampantly utilized - are rich and well-defined, and while the show's musical score gets in the way some of the time, for a relatively simple TV-on-BD set of mixes, these definitely deliver.
English Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes and English SDH subtitles are included.
