Utterly horrific price at the minute, hopefully see it be a bit more competitive before I put my order in!
You think that's bad? They're still charging 80 bucks for Season 2 on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca. My local Future Shop was trying to sell it for 95 dollars.

I'm trying to find Season 2 used for around 20 bucks. No way I'm paying even 40 for it. Season 3, I would happily pay 80 bucks for based on what I've seen so far in terms of quality.

Excuse the minor derailment, but I didn't want to start a whole new thread for this:

Does anyone know when re-masters are to start showing up on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and the like?
The remastered edition of S1 is up on Hulu right now.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Pardon me for asking, I'm just curious:

1) Has there been any indication or hint that the separate "Best of Both Worlds" feature length edit might contain Wolf359 battle VFX from DS9's "The Emissary" (or at least as an alternate Blu-ray viewing option)?

2) Has there been any indication or hint that the feature length edit might contain a 16:9 reformatted version of "Best of Both Worlds" (as an alternate Blu-ray viewing option)?

No to both, so far. I don't see the first one happening, and the second is an antithesis to everything we've been told about the Blu-ray project so far.

No indication whatsoever to both, and I would be very surprised if either happened. Very!

Edit: Bah! Beaten again.

Editing in the Wolf 359 battle would only undermine the scene when the Enterprise finds the remains of the fleet. Cropping to 16:9 would just look awful, I've seen it done to TOS for TV broadcast.

It's a legit solo release...even if some people wish they could get it for free by having it in the already awesome season 3 set.
Given what these sets are retailing for, it would hardly be free.

Hopefully the rest of the special features, besides the commentary, will end up on the season four set.

I do think it's a shame the commentary can't be included. Paramount had no problem editing Nick Meyer's commentary recorded for the extended version of TWOK to fit the theatrical version, for example. Unless the re-edited version of the episode constitutes a major departure from the original two-parter, they could do the same here. (Of course, it's possible the new edit is quite a bit different; it's also possible the commentary directly addresses the new edit, and wouldn't be applicable to the new version.)

Happy to hear they're not producing a 16:9 version, though. The season one features illustrated why that would look awful pretty well.

Most definitely. Then people would go "ah, it fills my screen, I can breathe now" and start demanding the rest of the series be done that way.

Thanks - they have Looper for a good price on Blu so I'm giving them a trial order there, if they do OK they get my TNG order. Amazon will come down, they always do, but I think they are currently taking the piss, it isn't 2001 any more!

I hope that price comes down to at least 70 when all is said and done.

1) No, the only thing is that it will be a feature length edition of the episode, nothing from another series will be edited into it.

2) No, it will be the original viewing aspect ratio. Not sure why everyone is obsessed about widescreen...
