A year after the explosive events of last season, England finds itself embroiled in a devastating civil war with the powerful neofascist Raven Union, led by Lord Harwood (JASON FLEMYNG), which threatens to control the entire country. North London remains one of the few remaining resistance holdouts. It’s here, in the West End Neutral Zone, that we find Alfred Pennyworth (JACK BANNON). His years in the British Army training with the SAS have taught him to be a cynical optimist – expecting the worst, but knowing that he can handle it. Now running The Delaney, a black-market Soho club that welcomes everyone regardless of their politics, Alfred – with his SAS mates “Bazza” (HAINSLEY LLOYD BENNETT) and “Dave Boy” (RYAN FLETCHER) – is now in search of a way out… before London, and his country, burns itself to the ground. And he’s got his eye on America.

Pennyworth comes to Blu-ray from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and pretty much is in-line with most of their TV titles like for Titans or Doom Patrol, meaning the picture, which is shown with a 2.00 aspect ratio, is mostly clean and detail relatively sharp for the close-ups. This is a dark looking show so you’re not going to get incredible bouts of color but dark levels are stark without appearing crushed. (copied from season 1 review)

Each episode comes accompanied with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. There’s a fair bit of everything here from many quieter, more dialogue-driven scenes, to some more action/suspense elements which does output of the front and rear channels. Nothing extraordinary but for a TV series, and one airing on a bit of a fringe network like EPIX, more than adequate. (copied from season 1 review)
