Looking: The Promised Land (Blu-ray)

Watched what is possibly my favorite scene ever from a television series, Looking’s The Promised Land.  This moment in an episode gives me chills and I wondered how it would look on the new television. Phenomenal. Details popped. Cinematography made me shiver. And the eye contact between characters, that nuanced part of acting you often miss displayed razor-sharp to draw you in intimately. Can’t wait to watch The Wizard of Oz.

Interestingly, Blu-ray looks incredible on the OLED. Regular DVD can be less impressive if the distributors haven’t spent money remastering. I love my DVD boxed set of Six Feet Under, but watching an episode this week proved less than dazzling. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t immersive.
