Re: TNG re-released on DVD

This isn't even about being a luddite. If you want the old DVD's there are a ton of them being sold on ebay for pennies by people that have taken the plunge with HD. There should simply be no market for an expensive version of what has gone before.

The only thing that I like about these new covers is that they went with Riker with beard and Deanna in Starfleet uniform, which is how I always think of them whenever I look back at the characters.

Re: TNG re-released on DVD

I don't get the criticisms levelled here about the Encounter At Farpoint version of Deanna Troi being on the season 7 set, either. After all, isn't that exactly how she appears in the past segments of All Good Things...?

I'm not sure how these can possibly be profitable though. Not when anyone who wants them could snap up second-hand original DVDs for a fraction of the price. On the other hand, if nobody actually buys these, the few that do survive being pulped as excess stock will probably be rare collector's items worth lots of money in decades to come... :thinks:

Ah, well, in that case it's unforgivable. Unforgivable, I say!

(My bad. But startrek.com will insist on having them displayed on my screen the wrong way around, won't they? )

Honestly, who gives a flying fuck if season 1 Troi is on season 6 cover? So stupid.

I've never liked the catsuits, so I for one am glad they went with uniformed Troi for this rerelease.

I feel sorry for Seven and T'Pol who were pretty much stuck in catsuits for their entire shows.

Deanna doesn't like when people curse. Tell her how you really feel.

Re: TNG re-released on DVD

It's odd how in the product specs for Season 1 Amazon lists hat the episodes are presented in BOTH Fullscreen and Widescreen. Are we getting a copy of the episode in the 4:3 format and a cropped 16:9 broadcast version? That's odd, considering that the Blu-Rays didn't even get the widescreen versions.

Mistake probably.

TNG complete series in the green box is also listed as WS when it isn't.
