Shit, look at Jack London in "Time's Arrow" he was the bellhop but apparently in charge of the hiring/firing practices of the hotel he worked for! Heck, he seemed to be the hotel's sole employee!
He was also a one-stop shop for getting whatever equipment Data needed. Better than Amazon.

2) Continue (as now) to get up from the couch and go towards the TV set when we want to read the menu.

You really have the much issue seeing those from ten feet? Might be time to invest in some glasses. Or just stick with the DVD's, because you can't be seeing any of the improvements if you can't make out the words on the menu...
That's for sure. Haven't had any problems with reading the menu on the 32" of my parent's, not even on a slightly BIGGER distance!!

32" Tvs are useless for watching most blurays, I use my 32" mainly as my PC screen. I had no probs seeing the cool new menus on my 47" tv.

There you have it: Season 3 Trailer
Man, it's amazing how suddenly modern and timeless the show looks once they switch to the collared uniforms.

It goes from looking painfully dated and 80s to something that could have been shot yesterday.
I actually thought the change in uniforms made them look like bellhops. It's the season 3-7 uniforms that I think have aged the worst out of all the Trek uniforms.

The uniforms made them look stiff, its another change (along with the music and lighting) that I think didn't do TNG any favors.
I seriously doubt that anyone agrees with you.

That's one of the things that annoys me about the switch to blu ray. It's really only beneficial if you get a big-ass tv to go with it...

The addition of the collar definitely made them appear more professional.

32" TV's are fine for watching Blu-ray discs. I'm watching TNG-R on a 32" in my bedroom right now and it looks stunning.

I've only got a 22". Blu rays look great but even dvds look good on one of those unless you're sitting within a metre of the screen...

Nope, lots of people disagree with me, so feel free to share. I'm feeling free to share that you are overwhelmingly disagreed with!

Anyone else notice anything goofy on the disc three gag reel? At 6:46, the image moves about two inches to the left and stays that way for the rest of it.

I'm pretty sure an modern military person would tell you that they are a professional doing a job.
