Glanced into Syfy now, they're showing The Ensigns of Command, which looks... quite good. I haven't seen an HD episode of TNG so I can't tell, are they finally showing it in 'proper' HD?
I noticed the picture isn't stretched, like it usually is when they're showing the old transfers.
Yes, it's real HD. Comparing the pin-sharp HD remasters to the muddy old versions of the episode, it's like night and day.
BTW, watching SyFy, the picture quality in season 3 episode is visibly better than season 2. Is that the same on the Blu-rays, to anyone who owns the discs?
