Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Yeah it's a small thing, but watching everyone walking around with a PADD of some kind on TNG really does make it feel surprisingly modern. Even if they were depicting the 24th instead of 21st century, it's still about the only scifi show I can think of that actually got that part of our "future" right, and predicted just how omnipresent such technology would be in our culture.

In fact any time I watch BTTF2 or Robocop now, I can't help but wonder "Where are all the people walking around with smartphones??"
