Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I ordered it on Amazon over the weekend after it went down to 64.99. It is supposed to ship by today (it has not yet), and it supposed to arrive Thursday (not likely).

First thing I'll do is watch Shades of Gray - insane, I know. I want to see how the season 1 stock footage looks after HTV did their thing with it.

I'm I too much of a nutty fan to guess that that ep. on in the background is "Coming of Age"? Is that Remmick holding the PADD?
Right you are.

Incorrect. It has young Teri Hatcher in it. That, to me, is its only redeeming quality. Same is true for Ashley Judd in The Game.
Teri Hatcher yes, but her bushy eyesbrows... No!

Yeah, those things could reach out and strangle a man.

Just got home from picking up the set. Not sure if I'll get an episode in before going to get my son from school or not.

It's been confirmed that Phase II test footage will be included in one of the special features.
Do you have a source you can link to for this info?

This would be footage shot in April 1978 I assume. To be able to see what 35mm footage kept in the archives from an abandoned TV pilot shot in 1978 on 35mm and telecined now in 2k to HD would be awesome!

A few minutes into The Child. The effects are underwhelming, but not as bad as the DVD.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I won't be watching the season 2 set tonight, and I'm pissed - at Best Buy.

They feature it in the ad, and then don't have it available at ANY stores in the metro Pittsburgh area.

It is marked as unavailable at nine - NINE - Best Buys in my area. That is ridiculous.

Plus, after striking out at my nearest Best Buy - and being told the nearest store that has it is in WEST VIRGINIA - I went to WalMart only to find it not there, either.

Grrr.

It's times like this I really, really miss Circuit City.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Best Buy is very frustrating.

On release day for the Indiana Jones Blu-ray box set, I went over to my local Best Buy. It wasn't there. There wasn't even a kiosk or a spot for it. I thought maybe I had the release date wrong, but it was correct.

A huge Blu-ray release, but I guess Best Buy made no effort to make it available. I went home and bought it off Amazon instead.

A little help to those wanting to purchase the set from Best Buy, their site has an in store pickup feature that lets you see if that store has it in stock or not, just type in your zip code, I'm not aware of how accurate it is however, it hasn't let me down.

Yeah, Best Buy's movie section is a confusing mess nowadays. I was able to find the S1 set last time, but it took quite a bit of looking first.

I'd buy it off Amazon if it wasn't for the "ships in 9 to 12 days" thing.

I can't find anywhere else to pick this up.

Is this what trying to buy some obscure foreign film feels like?

WalMart had Season One, but not Two. I see on their website it's listed at over $100, crazy.
