The only thing I've noticed about the BBCA TNG broadcasts is that they're edited. I think the edits are subtle and don't take anything away from the story, but when I watch and notice a line of dialogue missing here and there, it is irritating.
Really? Are you sure? It's not like TOS where in the '60s the run times were longer and had to be cut to fit into modern syndication. Though I must admit I wouldn't be totally surprised, because I have noticed some odd artifacts where the motion gets stilted and/or looks slightly sped up, which is usually a sign of a poorly done edit.
Yes, I finally checked. I watched the same episodes on BBCA and Netflix at the same time. There were definitely missing lines of dialogue, and scenes were clipped by a few seconds. I think the edits are to accommodate more commercial time now than there was in the '90s.
