Re: Rumor: TNG-HD is a-coming

Ugh Paramount and their ridiculously high pricing scheme for the Trek DVDs. Between when those DVDs came out in 2002 and now, I've managed to only acquire six seasons of TNG mainly because I simply refuse to pay more than $50 for a season of television on DVD. I recognize that's my own little quibble, but with the decline for ownership demand plus the near neverending rebroadcast of the series coupled with my own nostalgic photomemory of the series, I just haven't felt a pressing need to own any of the modern day Trek series, despite still trying to collect them.

I have no doubt the Blu-Rays will be similarly expensive, which of course is Paramount's right to charge, but man sometimes I wish Trekkies weren't so instant-gratification-heavy that they'd drop down so much money upfront.
