Oh, I did pick up the sampler.
And yes, it is amazing, especially "Farpoint." I think the lighting to the early seasons is much better than that of the later seasons, and as a result I think the first season probably has benefitted the most from the HD treatment. Certainly, "Farpoint" looked fantastic.
I'm of the opinion that seasons one and two look far better than season three in HD (haven't picked up four yet). It just seems light the lighting is way too bright in three.
For me, season 5 marks the beginning of a new, somewhat "wishy-washy" style on TNG from so many perspectives. The insipid "muzak", the overly bright set lighting, washed out colour pallette, and, IMHO, a more "by the numbers" approach to the photography. It all added an unnecessary veneer of blandness.
