My wife and I watched a few episodes of ST TNG S3 last night, and I have to say that the presentation is simply outstanding. The picture looks very cinematic, and exceedingly so at moments of clarity, most noticeably on the bridge where the lighting is even and really shines through.
With that said, X-Files is my second favorite franchise after Star Trek and even though X-files does not involve as much VFX, the news that HTV is working on it makes me cringe. The live action shots in S2 looked flat compared to S1 and S3. I expect the same for X-Files now, and what a shame. I had really hoped that X-Files would get the proper treatment, and commissioning HTV to do the work is not what I would call good news. Ugh. I'm very disappointed at this news.
