Bud..just take one of the TOS DVDs..run it on a BR player..then take a TOS BRD and run it right after..same episode..You WILL notice a difference.. Unless one is in denial and has bought into the "TV show as Art" crap...
I've owned some of every TOS home release since the VHS days, including the new Blu-ray releases. No one need preach to me on the differences in picture quality (I'm a Blu-ray and HD-DVD early adopter). But it doesn't mean that Next Gen
, as is, can't be watched and enjoyed on current home theater set-ups.
