Re: TOS-Remastered: a waste of time
(Warning! Disappointed fan’s rant and rave)
Having seen a few episodes of TOS-Remastered (only now finally on in the UK, to coincide with the DVD release of STXI), and ‘skipped ahead’ and seen FX clips of later episodes on YouTube, I have reached a conclusion: It’s a complete waste of time and effort. If you’re gonna keep everything so close to the original, why bother at all?
Dude. Where were you in September 2006?
The effects were done so they wouldn't look ridiculous on HDTV. And they do, if you use the option on the Blu Ray to watch the video with the original effects.
It was a solid project, done well. Could it have been better? Yes, but not doing even more doesn't mean nothing should have been done.
Don't like it? Don't buy it. Oh, and watching the effects on YouTube does not do justice to seeing them on a 1080p television.
