Just got done with Farpoint, and wow, does it look good. I actually had to stop and rewatch the credit sequence a few times because of how utterly incredible it now looks (I used to prefer the later credit sequence, but now I think this one is going to be my favorite).
And the uniforms were so much more bold and colorful
than I'm used to that I had to doublecheck that the color settings on my TV were correct as well. They're still not the best uniforms, but they look lightyears better than they used to.
Unfortunately the great picture and sound also made it a LOT more apparent that the actors were walking around on nothing but a bunch of wooden soundstages (which couldn't help but keep taking me out of the story). I guess the remastering team wasn't able to correct that odd, echoey tone the episode has always had.
Out of curiosity, I did zoom in on a few scenes and the show looks surprisingly natural in the widescreen format. No real problem with cut-off heads or anything, and it definitely makes the camera work seem a lot more dynamic.
Looking forward to seeing the other eps tomorrow.
