Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Ah, standard definition rears its ugly head again. 3 seconds is hardly worth griping about. Hopefully it's a dark shot.

This guy doing the unboxing needs some education about aspect ratios and that BOBW was split across two seasons.

It appears that part 1 has the missing 3 seconds. Gotta look fast when this guy is recording the back of the bobw box. Awesome art work for the bobw disc!

Right. But as Syd pointed out, it doesn't make sense that it's Part I because the Season 3 set doesn't appear to have the same disclaimer. Of course, it could be that they simply forgot to include it on the box. At the very least, it isn't in the same place the S1 disclaimer was printed.

The competitive price looks like it'll be $59.99 and $10 off when you buy it with the BOBW disc for $14.99 if the Target ad is anything to go by
I bought season one at Target (still haven't done the replacement...shame on me :P) but couldn't even find season two OR one there after season two came out.

Did anybody else have a similar experience?

I picked up seasons 1 and 2 at bestbuy. But for season 2, it was almost 2 weeks after the release before they stocked it. I was there recently and didnt see either season. This time, I did amazon.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I was looking up some information about Ensigns of Command, and there are plenty of things in there that could make the documentary, such as: (From Memory Alpha)
  • Having to cut $200,000 from the budget at the last minute
  • The title of the episode came from a poem written by John Quincy Adams
  • Goshaven had to be voice dubbed because the actor's original voice sounded too much like John Wayne. (You know what would be awesome in this documentary, or even on the set itself? Having this episode as a special feature without the voice dubbing and letting the fans hear the John Wayne voice. I wonder if in the long run how that would have affected the episode.)
  • This is an episode that Cliff Bole isn't really proud of. It's a pity, because Patrick Stewart's performance in that final negotiation scene makes the episode worth it, not to mention how hot Ard'rian was.
  • The Dali Llama was there, which is why I think this episode might be featured as part of the Doc.
If any of this stuff makes the documentary, I'll be happy because it will be once again showing that these features talk about the series as a whole, not just the "popular episodes". It also fits in with how the documentaries have gone so far with the make up tests and just going all the way with the detail. The more I think about this, the more I can't wait to see the season 3 part of the documentary, as well as the tribute to Michael Piller.

They had a bunch of photos taken with Brent Spiner. One of them ended up on the cover of the VHS tape that had this episode. I've got it at home somewhere. If I can find it, I'll scan it and put it up.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

That has to be one of the the absolute worst unboxing videos I've ever watched. Shaky cam, blurry, and un-educated reviewer. At least know about the product before you do a video about it.

This was on the DVD special features, or was it the bonus Data disc from Season 6? It's been a while since I've seen the special features, but that's cool if it was and I didn't know it was during EoC where the visit took place.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So here's the missing 3-second shot thanks to some posters over at Blu-ray.com:



Looks like my speculation about the footage maybe being lost due to use in the First Contact teaser trailer was unfounded. This looks more like the situation with the missing 2 seconds from "We'll Always Have Paris" that was never located and less like the missing 13 seconds from "Sins of the Father" that was simply misplaced. I don't think it's likely that they'll ever find it.

But it *is* from Part II, just like I thought! The disclaimer on the package is wrong.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

See, I would have slightly edited the footage so that Riker's "give us time" line was over an extended clip of Locutus on the viewscreen. Just a slight-enough change that 99% of people would never notice.

There's always the possibility it'll turn up in time for the Season 4 Blu-ray, but if not, the effort is appreciated.

By the time it gets to this point in the story, I'll be so into it I might not even notice.

That would have worked! I would have been okay with that. Or considering they were scanning everything, the use of another take or possibly compositing Riker's mouth movements from the 1-inch tape upconvert and blending it into the HD footage that *was* found. That way 90% of the shot would have been HD.

But, as it is, I'm sure it will be okay. Good thing the scene is dark.
