Subpar Blu-Ray Release
, August 3, 2011
This review is from: Louie: Season 1 (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo in DVD Packaging) (Blu-ray)
Please note that my review does not in any way mean to suggest that Louie is anything short of a spectacular series. This is a great show, but there's something really wrong with this release.
For a show originally shot in HD, I'm really confused about how the transfer to Blu-Ray could be so disappointing. The video quality on these episodes is very uneven, particularly for very dark scenes. Considering how great this show looked in HD during its original broadcast, it's a shame that certain sequences on the Blu-Ray are washed out. I'm guessing this is due to the compression needed to mash the episodes down onto two Blu-Ray/DVD hybrid discs. Whatever the cause, it might be better to stick with the original DVD release and not go with the DVD/Blu-Ray combo version, or just go with digital streaming.
Considering how much time and effort creator Louis CK put into a show that looks as good as this one does, it's a real shame that the studio dropped the ball in transferring the series to Blu-Ray.
