I dread, dread the shot were Q takes Amanda out on the hull. On Video its hideous. And certainly the model isn't up for that close up to show real quality. One of the few model based fx shots that I hope is lost. For all the weaknesses of weekly tv CGI, I would much rather see work like ENT had on minefield when shown walking on the hull.
Yeah that effect does look pretty bad now, but I think CBS-D could still make it work. If you throw in enough shadow and really darken it up a lot, I think the shot could actually look really cool.

Anyone know when Target normally releases their films. Are they out as soon as they opening, or is it one of those that will have crew putting out the Supply sometime during the business day on Tuesday (I HATE that).
I bought the TNG Sampler from Target and hardly any of them had it (had sold out fast) Ended up driving 30 minutes away to find one that did.

I think if you check the website and the location the inventory is correct. If they say they have ....they do.

Just home from work and mine was delivered from Amazon this morning. Now if only the wife would hurry up and get home so we can start watching.

Yeah, I've got a bunch of Targets in my area, but they never seem to carry many copies of anything and always run out real quick.

So I think I'll probably just stick with Best Buy.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

To those who ordered from Amazon- be sure to check what you were charged. My order was charged and shipped today but they charged me $77.99 instead of the $59.99 listed on their website. I have pre-ordered with Amazon many times before and never had this issue. I have emailed them about it.

edit:
Update: They responded quickly and say they are going to send me a refund of the difference.

I think this is a perfect shot for using the CG model. Someone must have misplaced the model shot. (I stole it)

To those thinking about getting the set at Target, you might want to get there early. I'm finding that Target these days really sell out fast on popular Blu-Ray titles.

I think the S3 set will be gone fast because it looks like nearly all fans will be taking advantage of the Buy S3 and BOBW deal.

I'm very excited about this release. This is where the show got really good in my opinion.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Watched BOBW feature-length last night - the quality is breath-taking. Not a single moment in the entire 90 mins that didn't ooze quality. Except for those 3 seconds of SD, of course. Which I confess I liked having there as a reminder of just how awesome this remaster is compared to the original!

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Even though I knew which scene it was that was in SD, I either blinked and missed it, or just didn't pick up on it, so either way not a problem for me.

The overall PQ, as you say, is stunning. The 1701-D in the nebula, and the explosion of the Borg cube at the end of the story, are just breathtakingly good.

Enjoyed the 30 minute retrospective as well, particularly Elizabeth Dennehy's comments, I'm not sure that I've ever heard her discuss the appearance before. The gag reel is about 5 minutes and includes a good few chuckles.

The episode promos, are awful. So 80s with gravelly-voiced guy in full-on ham-it-up-OTT mode!

Haven't listened to the commentary track yet, maybe tonight.

On the basis of the quality of this release I'll probably commit to buying the future standalone releases. The VAM here is worth the £6 I paid for it.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

My girlfriend was watching with me... When the enterprise reached the nebula my loud exclaim of "WOW!" was met with one of the most perturbed looks I've ever seen. Although she did agree it was very pretty I think the reason *why* I was so amazed was lost on her!

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Luckily for me, the wife loves the show every bit as much as I do. That being said she sometimes struggles to see the difference between SD and HD unless it's staring her in the face!

Usually end up having the BD and the DVD side-by-side. As far as TNG's concerned, the BD and the DVD, are like chalk and cheese.

Loved the final shot of the episode as well, with the Enterprise in Earth orbit. Time for a screen grab and a new desktop wallpaper I think!
