Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I'm surprised at those who didn't notice the early 3rd season episodes before. I remember how odd they looked when the episodes first aired, watching on my 22" CRT. The seams have always been noticeable, and the way they're stuffed to make the males looks beefy is very odd. The later, final, and slimmer uniforms look much better.

Just watched "Yesterday's Enterprise". It's awesome!

Would have been nice if they had dubbed Michael Dorn as the voice of the Klingon captain who demands alt-Enterprise's surrender (don't care if they ever planned to do this when the ep was filmed, they should have done it now) but there we are.
The new audio-commentary on the Blu-Rays explains why this didn't happen btw.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Just watched "The Enemy", Picard, Riker and Geordi are now wearing the updated uniforms, Worf, Data and O'Brien are still wearing the interim ones. Was a little surprised Geordi was wearing the new one, considering how filthy it gets. Maybe easier to wash material? Also, Beverly is now sporting the one-piece female uniform with the seam down the middle, plus her hair is much longer! Looking back at the screencaps of the previous episodes, I noticed the only time you see her not wearing the labcoat is when she's sitting or her waist is out of frame. Apparently they didn't like the look of the bloused bottom of the new uniform tops on women...?

The Enemy is really improved with the transfer to HD. We can actually see what's going on planet side now.

If I recall correctly, she discovered she was pregnant while shooting "Remember Me" in early Season Four. By "The Host," they were carefully shooting her to disguise her baby bump.

Gates was pregnant during season four. She found out after filming for "Remember Me" was complete.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So I went into my local music shop today. They sell used cds and dvds, also blu rays. I was just browsing, I really had no intention buy anything.

I saw that they had the full season 3 Blu-ray set "used" for $24.99!!!!

This just can out right???? I am kind of broke right now, only thing I bought so far was the original sampler. So I was baffled. Why would anyone sell these so quickly??? The discs look to be in perfect condition, I checked before I bought them. Now I am going to have to watch them and see if there was problem. Even that would be strange, if their is a defect the person could have returned it to were they bought it.

SO far the first disc is fine. Maybe I just got lucky!

Did anyone see the new CGI in Booby Trap yet? I don't mean the welders in the background..
The new explosion is nice, if that's what you mean...
No, it's a new cgi shot of the enterprise
Got a time index? I'd like to keep an eye out for it when I watch the episodes.

I think you got lucky, as you said f there was something wrong with the discs the customer could have gotten a replacement instead of selling them at a loss. Whoever bought them probably ripped the discs and decided to get some money back by selling the set. That's the only way I can see a used set showing up right after release.

Whatever the reason was, you're a lucky guy.

Yeah, it's a bit funny that they are ok with declaring some of the matte shots not up to HD standards but won't do that for any of the model shots.
While I tend agree about the 2-footer being pretty sad and detracts from most of the shots it's in, ship shots are not exactly comparable to matte paintings.

The matte paintings are basically just static paintings, they usually aren't recomposited into a shot, they were already part of the set dressing or they are their own live shot without any actor in it (like an establishing shot of a cityscape). And they certainly aren't like the various passes of the models which have a lot of ability to be tweaked and re-lit when composited into a scene, all the while still technically using the original footage (as evidenced by the differences between HTV and CBS-D's handling of the model footage).

With a matte painting either there is plenty of detail that looks good in HD or their isn't. If you look at the special features of Season 2, they have shots of the original Borg cube matte painting. It is a beautiful painting, but it was clearly done with limits of standard definition TV in mind. The brush strokes become quite obvious in HD when the camera gets closer to the matte painting.

Another case where they may enhance or change things is if it's a re-used matte painting. In the case of re-uses, like TOS-R before it, they have decided to allow for some artistic license to tweak the matte paintings to keep it from being a complete repetition.

I am thinking they ripped it too. There was also Roger Rabbit on Blu-ray and I also know that came out recently. I need to check this place more often!!!!

What is the disc art like, what kind of pictures are on the reverse side of the case? Maybe we can confirm if it is legit or not.

You have the sampler, right? The disc art is exactly the same. Solid blue with cut-outs for the text.

The back of the case should match the paper slip. It has a laughable "before/after" comparison, some pictures and specs.
