Amazon screwed up my order and now I will not get it until the 17th or 18th

Wonder if anyone can explain the lack of availability, especially after I had read that Season 1 had supposedly sold well. You'd think retailers would've wanted to have this available.
I think a big problem is that it is being released the same day as TDKR. The stores are all focusing on that. CBS decided it was worth it so S2 can be released before Christmas. But the sets should start appearing in stores more if there is a demand for it.

As a last resort the sets can always be bought on places online like on Amazon.

The system that vacuums the carpet on the ship and the craftmanship at Utopia Planitia disappoints me.

Well, at least it goes against the criticism that TNG was too clean.

Too much glow around the deflector and engines, and too bright, but otherwise decent:

Never realized before that fans cared so much about the brightness of the deflector and engines.

I think it looks fine either way. Besides, the ship IS at warp in that shot, so seems like it probably should be a bit brighter.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I haven't posted about Trek here in ages... let alone in the TNG forum!

I just thought I'd drop by to say that the extended cut of Measure of a Man was interesting, but a lot of that editing just feels so dated. They probably could have trimmed a lot of those face reaction shots and sped the episode along a lot, even if it only effectively would be cutting a couple seconds or so of screen time.

That said, I was surprised that the episode didn't feel all that different with the extra 13 minutes or so. It still had the same beats as the original episode - it's just that the acts were extended slightly - so it still has the same structure. It makes me wonder if all TNG episodes would work if they were TOS episode length.

Anyway, I do like the fact that they included the "hybrid" cut, if only so you could see which scenes were new, but I am a bit frustrated that you can't watch the hybrid cut with the commentary. I don't think I'm interested enough in the episode to watch it three times... so I guess I'll just end up looking at a list of the new scenes on some wiki somewhere.

Looking forward to diving the rest of the set!

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

As I was attempting to get some of the names from that ship list in "The Measure of a Man", I noticed that the picture went from grainy to clear and back to grainy. Is this normal?

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.

I had that exact experience trying to find the first sampler disc when it came out. Had to drive way the hell out of town to get it.

It's "In Stock" at the ten nearest store to me (Miami). Weird...

The Enterprise actually looks pretty good in this shot. Too bad it didn't look like it consistently through season 2:

really?

it's way too dull looking imo. like it was painted in primer.

Compared to these, I think so.

I think the "dull look" of it is very "natural" looking.

I liked in the opening of "The Child" the color contrast between the Enterprise and the Excelsior-class is very stark. The Enterprise looking new, clean, and modern. The Excelsior looking weathered and beaten, like she's been around the block a few times.
