OK, so the first Gravity Falls DVD came out Yesterday, thought I would post my thoughts on it.
First off, still kind of bummed at how cheap a huge company like Disney is. Series creator Alex Hirsch fought hard for a complete Blu-Ray season set, but got turned down, so fans have to settle for SD DVD singles, oh well, someday maybe, someday… but ahh yeah..
- We FINALLY have a physical copy of this show out. Its been on Amazon Video & iTunes for awhile, but its still nice to have a disc out
- The packaging is nice, it seems a small bit of effort was put into it
But sadly thats about it...
- SD does this show no justice, part of what makes Gravity Falls great is its atmosphere, the shading on the SD feed of the show isn't nearly as good as the HD feed, its steill enjoyable, but doesn't fill quite the same
- for a "Dinsey DVD" the audio wasn't all that great, i've bough Shout Factory, WB, Nick DVDs with better audio, its not horrid mind you, but just, well the BGM's seem off in parts, the sound just isn't as crisp as the TV airings or iTunes downloads.
- Colors are too bright. I know its not just my TV because i've watched the same episodes off of Disney channel. I dunno why but the colors on the DVD version are brighter then the broadcast or downloads, it doesn't ruin the show but it is abit annoying.
Still though I will say the show is still just as awesome even if its being released in a lackluster DVD single.
Overall: Its just six episodes and only 15 bucks, so while its not a perfect release I would still reccomend getting it. Gravity falls is a WONDERFUL cartoon, one of the few programs on a Disney network worth watching, and sadly the only way we will get Blu-Ray Season sets proper are if these DVD singles sell, so I beg, if your a fan, pick this up! or if your just curious as to see why people love this toon, give it a go as well.
And thats all she wrote.
