Grainer than other episodes in the season.

If you cropped a remastered TNG episode to fill the 16:9 screen, as happened with "Broken Bow", in order to fill the frame... the grain would be enlarged, along with everything else inside the area being zoomed into.
My understanding is that the standard practice in TV isn't to use anamorphic lenses. That means that you shouldn't see a noticeable difference in grain from "Broken Bow" compared to the rest of the season - even when they knew they were shooting for 16:9, that image would have been extracted from the 4:3 frame, same as "Broken Bow" was.
