Re: Season ONE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I successfully made it through When the Bough Breaks last night. It's as painful as ever.

I've never found a definitive answer to the question about the kids' promotion during the first season. Paramount solicited entries from children, and the winner would have a walk-on in a future episode.

I always assumed that one of the kids in this episode was the winner, but now I realize it might have already been in the can when the promotion was running.

Does anyone know who won and in which episode the child appeared? Thanks.

I really don't find WtBB to be that bad, overall. It has some corny moments for sure (mostly the ending which is a freeze-frame short of a sitcom but also common to TNG's first season.)

But it's pretty decent overall.

I agree. The ending could have been much better, but they fixed the planet and you never heard about again. Would have been nice to visit it later in the series to see how much progress had been made in the relearning of everything on Aldea and if they had starting procreating again.

BTW, nice avatar!

"Sins" is another one that comes to mind that had the freez-frame ending in the council chamber.

I notice uk Sci Fi channel is starting TNGHD on the 5th November; be interesting to see if the 2 part Farpoint is the same, and if its all widescreen. The trailer was.

I doubt it'll be widescreen, or at least I hope not, because making it widescreen would have to crop the top and bottom off the frame... I hope they show it in full frame...

Re: Season ONE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

TNG looks amazing on blu ray. I can't wait for season 2. It's hard to to believe how much transferring to video tape washed out the picture. I also love how the effects are all reconstructed

I take it after seeing the blu rays no one could go back to the originals versions? I loaned my season 1 DVD to a friend and I said she could keep it as with the blu ray I feel this is the definitive version of TNG.

Are peopl tading in their DVDs. I usually keep them if DVD is a diff version or is signed but to me TNG on blu ray is to me the definitve way.

How do I know, that I (will) have the "corrected" version without the initial audio issues?

The corrected version has a small starfleet emblem on the discs and I think on the outer spine of the case too.

Thanks for the info. Is this valid for the European edition(s) too? I should receive mine tomorrow, hopefully.
