Video: How Do the Discs Look?
These 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfers are great. One wishes the show could get a high-def bump, but even without it, Southland’s second, third, and fourth seasons come to DVD with striking detail quality, solid black levels, and a color palette that seems authentic and well-defined. Compression artifacting isn’t an issue, either, which definitely is a major asset. For standard-def, these couldn’t be much better.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes included on this set seem to also mirror the show’s original design nicely. Dialogue is always audible – even during the show’s busiest moments – and surrounds pop in with excellent effect quite often. Fidelity is also strong, with high- and low-ends coming through cleanly and robustly. Not bad at all.
English and French subtitles are included.
