I think it's just one more example of many with the lack of quality and care that went into the S2 effects work. So glad I stood by my decision not to buy it.
You're missing out.
While some issues do exist, overall the set is a solid 'B' compared to season one's 'A+'.
Glad I decided to go ahead and pick it up.
Extras aside, I'm not really missing all that much. A clearer picture, yup, but in terms of the episodes...I can watch them anytime I want on Netflix with fewer mistakes.
I grew up watching TNG on a small TV with a set top antenna. It was fuzzy and the color would fade in and out. The DVD's and even Netflix are a huge improvement over that. So for HTV to do the bare minimum and just make it a bit clearer, but with more visual effects mistakes is not really worth 60 to 80 dollars for me.
Maybe I'll buy it used off of someone someday for 20 bucks. I'm patient enough to wait a few more years.
