Man, forgot this was on. Sure it'll be repeated plenty though.

Re: TNG HD coming to Syfy (UK)

Why is Syfy UK skipping episodes?
So it's going to be 1-4, 11, 6?

Seems pretty random...

Re: TNG HD coming to Syfy (UK)

Is it anything to do with airdate order vs. production order? I agree it's confusing.

That's exactly it -- production order. The Blu-rays are in airdate order. This means new viewers might see Tasha die, then come back to life in the next episode with no explanation!

I wonder if Syfy are airing TNG-R that way because of some kind of agreement with CBS, or that it is what they think the fanboys want, or that they are doing it for shit and giggles?

Not sure what the motive is... but looking at their website, they seem to be aware of the correct episode order, yet they do seem to be headed toward showing "Skin of Evil" before "Symbiosis":

http://www.syfy.co.uk/schedule/2012-12-04

Schedule information isn't available for December 5th onward... maybe in another day or two.

Re: TNG HD coming to Syfy (UK)

Oh good. Another mystery solved.

As for Skin of Evil airing before Symbiosis, I always love the little wave Denise Crosby gave in the background in her real final scene.

And also, it's not like I haven't seen the episodes several times; I know what's going on, even in the wrong order.

And also, I've got TNG HD on Sky+, so I record them and watch them in whatever order I see fit.

Re: TNG HD coming to Syfy (UK)

As far as I can tell, it's not that they're skipping episodes, rather there's something very wrong with the meta data that the TV guide gives.

My TiVo recorded (what it said was) Haven on Friday evening, and then yesterday it recorded (what it says is) Lonely Among Us, episodes 11 and 7 respectively. I checked the recordings, and they're actually *both* The Last Outpost, which is what should have been on on Friday.

So, it does seem like they're broadcasting them in the correct order, just with the wrong details. For anyone with a Series Link (particularly on TiVo), this may well mean it catches the same episodes multiple times, and misses others, so it might be worth setting them all manually - I noticed that TiVo had already cancelled the recording for this Friday and next Monday, as it thinks both of those are Haven again.

Hope that helps people!

Well, glad I'm not the only one confused with the episode order.

Re: TNG HD coming to Syfy (UK)

I've always found it strange watching it back on DVD in the original airing order, after years of watching repeats on Sky I'd gotten used to watching them in the production order.

Probably. It is interesting to return to the first season after so many years. It still feels like a completely different show compared to season three onwards (in both good and bad ways, but truthfully, mostly bad).

And I hadn't realised before that the first Data/Geordi scene took place in 'Code of Honor', and it is interesting to see even how at the very beginning of the show where Worf was present as an afterthought Dorn is totally making the most of whatever is thrown his way (and given how a lot of his dialogue is basically stating more forcefully whatever it is Yar is saying, one wonders how that dynamic might have developed.)

Weren't you confused when Tasha died in one episode, then was suddenly alive in the next?

Looking back it's strange that I never but Haven, Angel One, When the Bough Breaks and Symbiosis where all on my 'find something else to watch' list from season 1.

Whilst I only ever saw it in the correct order, I remember all those years ago the next week when she was still in the credits thinking 'I knew it!' Regulars just don't stay dead in Star Trek.

I knew she'd be back. Just took a little longer than I thought.
