Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

I watched 3 more episodes last night so some thoughts on those:

-The Last Outpost really does bring out the worst in TNG sometimes. I remember when I first came to these boards (More than 10 years ago), one common complaint was the Enterprise Crew talking down to the aliens they meet saying they are not civilized. That's pretty much what happens here. I'm glad they calmed that down in the later seasons, but what right does Riker have to judge the Ferangi.
The same reason, humans are judged among humans, for their pros and cons... however, the Ferengi did act rather immature in "The Last Outpost," they had more composure in "The Battle."

-Where No One looks stunning in HD. Loved what they did with that episode.
Agreed.

-This isn't one of the discs being replaced but did anyone notice an Echo when Picard revealed himself to be the alien? It was in the ready room with Crusher near the end of the episode. Also, maybe I just didn't notice this on the DVDs but it looked like when the Enterprise goes to Warp back to the cloud, we don't get the entire warping effect (That diamond special effect mostly) and the screen actually cuts to black for a brief moment. Again, not major issues, and those are stuff I can live with, but it seemed a little weird.
The echo was in the DVD version as well, so I don't think it's a problem.

As for the warping, I think we cut back to the dialogue before that effect starts... they did add it in "Where No One Has Gone Before" though.

I honestly can't wait till the "new uniform" seasons are on Blu Ray. I guess having just seen Season 1 (And even Shades of Gray like 2 months ago, I find myself wanting to pop in a DVD from Season 5 (Or last night after Where No One, see Remember Me). Still, this has been a great purchase and looking forward to the fixed discs.
If you got the sampler back in January, they had 2 episodes, one from Season 3, and one from 5... when they had the shoulder padded uniforms...

I haven't seen the above 2 episodes yet, but I watched Lonely Among Us last night, and most of the dialogue in about the first 1/3 of the show is very boxy. Music and effects sound fine. Because this episode is on disc 2, it won't be fixed.
Okay, I just watched the first 15 minutes of "Lonely Among Us" again, this time connected directly to an HDTV so I could listen to it through it's speakers and I do not hear a problem -- at least not anything beyond typical set acoustics and deficiencies with the original magnetic audio tape.

Since I already confirmed this episode does not have the dialogue duplicated in the left and right channels on my full 7.1 system, I consider this episode fine... it sounds as it's supposed to, anyway.

It gets my seal of approval (whatever that's worth ).
I already thanked you for responding to my similar post over at AVS Forum, but wanted to thank you again for the detective work you did. I also listened to the right speaker to confirm that the episode only had dialogue from the center channel.

I only know that it sounded bad to me. I've also watched Naked and Where No Man using the surround sound, and the dialogue definitely sounded dodgy to me on Lonely, but perhaps that's the way it was recorded. Thanks again.
Hadn't noticed any audio problems in "The Naked Now" or "Where No One Has Gone Before," I've only noticed audio issues in the episodes that have been mentioned, like "11001001," "Haven," etc.
