I keep wondering about this argument. What makes a film not a mediocre single episode spread over two hours?
Film stuff.

Film and television are written differently, filmed differently, lighted differently, staged differently, acted differently, scored differently, and a long list of other stuff.

Generations didn't do all those things like a film normally would, but did them like a TV show with a lot more cash on hand--the dialog beats, the score, and the lighting specifically.

For example, people praise the Ten Forward lighting. However, the DP really didn't approach it like one would expect in film but the same way the did on the show--he just threw more money at it.
