As for audio, Slings & Arrows sounds just fine. It's a dialogue-driven show about theatre actors, not a $200 million dollar action movie. So the mix is completely unremarkable but does exactly what it needs to. The first two seasons are simple DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, with season three bumping it up to 5.1. Dialogue sounds clear and free of distortion throughout. Nothing much fancy happens in any of the mixes, but the King Lear stage effects sound pretty cool in 5.1 surround. There are storm sequences with loud sound effects, for which the mix utilizes the rear channels very well.
Supplemental features are quite extensive. Each of the three seasons includes one commentary track for a specific episode, several interviews, and a selection of deleted scenes and bloopers. The lengthiest selection of features is found on the third season. There are more in-depth interviews on that one, as well as extended King Lear scenes not seen in the episodes. Numerous minor feature round out the package, including production notes and the lyrics to each season's opening song.
Slings & Arrows - The Complete Collection might seem like a shot in the dark for anyone completely unfamiliar with the series. But for those who appreciate television programs with insightful writing, engaging acting, and laughs mixed with bittersweet emotion, this series is for you.
