Unfortunately, the remastering hasn't improved Denise Crosby's acting.

The Farpoint mall scenes look even cheaper in 1080p than 480i.

There are times the fuzziness helps.

Noticing some color banding in the first briefing lounge scenes. The only time I've noticed it.

I understand why they changed Data's lip color later on. He looks like the Joker in Encounter at Farpoint.

Never notice that Spiner has a stunt double in the holodeck scene when hopping across the rocks.

I just watched The Inner Light, and that opening shot did not look nice to me. Sure, its vaguely close, but the flight path is wrong (well, wrong is relative, its more to the right than it was) and it looks really CG at the end of it. They've also done away with the the Katan glow when the sun is slowly going nova. Overall the rest of the episode looks great, and in comparison to Sins of the Father the stuff on the bridge looks really vibrant and has deep blacks. SOTF seemed a tad washed out I felt.
I'm not sure you are correct. The ship always kept fairly to the right in that shot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPD4J3Mhy3Y

I never realized it before, but the "hope we can be friends" scene between Picard and Crusher is placed in a really odd spot in the episode.

Yeah it sort of is, but it's a minor scene and it's also often cut for the two-parter.

Yeah, I had the same thought. That scene should have come earlier.

The Legends were true!

On the Dr. Crusher scene, it was probably added for the sole purpose of having to edit it out for the two-parter so it had to be placed where it was to facilitate that.

Or right at the end after the crisis had passed.

Seeing it really makes me wish that the original effects elements had been available for TOS-R.

Opening scene of Sins of the Father looks like shit.
