I made my feelings about TOS-R often enough that I don't need to repeat them. Suffice to say that overall they don't work for me and I don't support it by purchasing them. I'll just stick with my three DVD box sets.
you know, I agree with you about the remasterings. the cgi versions are not nearly as good (or historically relevant) as the original versions with the original sfx. but IMO the blu rays are worth buying for the increase in quality of the original footage, and you don't need to watch the cgi versions. Original versions in HD is greatness!
