Video: How Do the Discs Look?
These 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfers are strong, but not perhaps as punchy as they could be. There are examples of compression artfiacting and aliasing that definitely pop up now and again, but for the most part, color accuracy is steady and well-balanced, black levels are strongly inky, and detail quality is vivid without resorting to smear. It'd be better to have these in high-def, of course, but for now, this TV-on-DVD set will do.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes here are equal in quality to their video discmates. Dialogue is always audible and crisp, and even though surround channels don't open up extensively, every once in a while an immersive atmospheric or music cue will heighten a viewer's experience. All in all, a fine - if standard - set of tracks.
