Video: How Do the Discs Look?
Things on these 1.78:1 1080p transfers are sturdy and impressive. The show's color palette tends towards browns and reds but maintains consistency (and vividness) throughout. Color saturation is nice and rich, and there isn’t any macroblocking or compression artifacting to speak of. Detail quality isn't exceptionally consistent - there's definitely a strong degree of smear here and there to mention - but compared to earlier standard-def editions of Merlin, this set is a lovely upgrade.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
The DTS-HD 2.0 Master Audio sound mixes here are totally straightforward. Dialogue is fairly crisp, but the background soundtrack tends to overpower and drown it out during the show's busier sequences. Altogether, the set plays it pretty safe and never strays into provocative design, it's pretty successful in doing so.
English SDH subtitles are included.
