SRP $19.94 1.85:1(16:9) DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 SONY

SONY, for some strange reason, is now releasing “KINGDOM HOSPITAL” as separate episode compilations.  The entire short-lived series was released in its entirety in a boxed set already. 

The hospital in question has been built on the ground where a tragic fire took the lives of many children during the Civil War.  There’s never a doubt that ghosts and unspeakable evil reside within the halls here.  There are various subplots and numerous characters. For the most part, the characters are engaging and viewers will find it easy to stake an interest in what happens to their favorite characters during the story.  Stephen King adapted this series from a popular, superior Danish Series by Lars Von Trier, “THE KINGDOM.

SONY Has preserved the show’s 1.85:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement.  Colors are solid and as tv series transfers go, this is one of the better ones.  The image is slick, and contrast is flawless.

SONY has presented a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. It’s aggressive with plenty of surround and separation effects throughout. Bass is featured prominently as well.
