Re: The OFFICIAL STNG Next Level Bluray watch and review thread
Reposts from the other thread:
Just saw all the episodes (I preordered from Play.com too) and I have to say the work they've done is nothing short of impressive. It'll be very difficult to go back to watching the DVDs after this.
If the entire series is of the same quality I don't think we have much to be worried about.
One thing I did find distracting was during the intro sequence when the ringed planet passes by the stars in the background move in two different patterns. I hope they fix that when they start releasing the rest of the series.
Speaking of the intro I thought it was nothing short of amazing. I never realized there was so much detail.
That was the one. I read about it once but I never noticed it on the low-res DVDs. In HD the individual stars are much easier to see.
For me it's the only fault in an otherwise flawless sequence. If it was there originally I understand and respect their views. If they're going to the trouble of fixing some other faults (like the energy beam in the pilot) something like this seems almost trivial. Just mask the old starfield behind the rings more should do the trick.
Not bad at all. And we get the option of a £5 mail-in rebate off the price of the Season 1 blu-ray set.
Currently watching Doctor Who... from the beginning.
