Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I didn't see this posted yet but Blu-ray.com has their review up and it's nothing but glowing:

I'm excited to get my copy next week.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So wait, they're using a completely different menu for S2? That's a bit bizarre, and slightly annoying.

^ Annoying? I see that as bringing more variety to the releases. Didn't they do this with the DVDs, too? So it's more or less keeping a tradition. Plus, I think the new menu looks a better than that for season one.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I'm glad they're changing the menu up for each season. It gives it it's own unique flavor (In a good way, mind you ). Also, did they take the viewers suggestions and add in any episode guide (Or put the titles on each respective disc) because that was one of the more annoying aspects of the Season 1 sets.

I don't mind variety, but to me the S1 menus looked a lot classier than these ones.

The new ones look fine to me. Bigger, too, I think -- perhaps CBS responding to fan complaints about the small buttons on the season one menus?

Well I think the new menu fits in a lot better with the look of TNG. It looks a lot more like the LCARS consoles they used.

Still, isn't Blu-Ray.com one of the sites which failed to pick up on the audio issues?

Correct.

Thankfully, there doesn't appear to be any audio issues on this set. Thank Maxwell Everett for checking that for us.

That would be every reviewer, including Blu-Ray.com and TrekCore that missed the audio issues first time around.

Which is why I don't trust review sites. Whether they be for movies, home video or video games. There are certain people that I look to on various message boards that'll give it to you straight about the quality of releases.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Many reviewers were caught with their pants down. But in their defense, they're used to reviewing 2-hour movies. They don't have time to review all 26 episodes because they want their review out ASAP for page views.

Some admitted to basing their review off the sampler disc for Encounter at Farpoint assuming it was exactly the same (not a bad assumption), and then cherry-picking some of the episodes which just happened to be unaffected by the audio glitches. One even noted "tinny" audio for Haven, but brushed it off.

These same reviewers (Blu-ray.com, highdefdigest) are likely just popping in TNG this time around to look at grain structure, the audio mix (so they don't get burned a second time) and probably the color. Few, if any, know about HTV or the lower quality visual effects. It's up to the fans to let the reviewers know something is wrong.

I forwarded some of the worst screenshots (including the compositing error) to Bill Hunt at The Digital Bits. We'll see if anything comes of that. Thankfully, Trek fans are loud.
