Probably because it's so close to the release date yet. I'd imagine the upgrade to S3 on iTunes/Hulu/etc. won't happen until we're closer to the July release of S4.

I think there's a statutory waiting period before it is released digitally.

Consider yourself lucky, they haven't released any of the seasons on iTunes in the UK.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

A Matter of Perspective is just preposterous on so many levels. Whether it's the investigator letting Riker's own people use their Holodeck technology to defend him, or the ridiculous portrayal of a sleazy and violent Riker, or the scientist's crazy plan to kill Riker which backfires and somehow blows up the entire station, or the way the Holodeck magically duplicates the entire event at the end, exonerating Riker.....

The idea of a Rashoman story is definitely a cool one, but for it to work the alternate versions of the story have to at least be somewhat plausible. Plus the whole murder plot is contrived and not terribly interesting in the first place.

I will say though the opening with Data giving a critique of Picard's painting is as perfect as ever. Spiner's comic timing in that scene is absolutely freakin priceless.

Agreed on all counts. The opening is hilarious, but the machinations of the main story make little sense.

My favorite part is the subtle look Picard gives when he stands up from the Conn station after guiding the Enterprise through the debris. All he needed was a microphone to drop.
Ok, the bolded text gave me a mental image that made me lol.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Huh, never noticed before in Yesterday's Enterprise that Castillo actually taps his movie-era command badge at one point to talk to someone.

I wonder if that was just another continuity error (of which there are many in this episode), or if we're meant to think Starfleet really did switch to communicator badges during the Enterprise-C era.


And while I never gave it much thought before, I have to agree with Moore in the commentary that this episode REALLY deserved to be a two-parter. There's just so many great side-stories and interesting avenues they could have gone down with these alternate characters, and it's a shame we never got to see them.

Yeah, I always figured communicator tech had advanced so much by Castillo's era that it could be fitted in a badge for the first time. Later as technology improved, it inspired the shrinking of the comm badges further.

I'm conflicted about this. There isn't a single wasted second in Yesterday's Enterprise, and I think too many two-parters end up struggling to fill the running time. A 60 minute episode would be great, but 90 minutes?

I used to always think it worked great the way it was, but now honestly it feels to me a bit rushed and abbreviated.

We have this massive war with the Klingons, the epic return of the Ent-C, our first look at Captain Garrett, a more hardened Picard and crew, the return of Tasha Yar... and we only get brief glimpses at any of those. And the whole thing is suddenly over before you know it.

Of course it could just come down to the fact this version of TNG feels SO much more interesting and complex than the one we normally see, and it's just tempting to want to see more of it.

The movie-era uniforms used in Yesterday's Enterprise looked goofy. They look cheap without the tunics underneath, especially at the neckline. And then they took out the belt, but they still kept the belt loop.

I didn't mind the lack of a belt, but it did seem to be missing something without the turtleneck.

It also looks odd in retrospect that the crew were using the older TWOK-style phasers instead of the later TUC phasers (even though I do think the TWOK ones were a heck of a lot cooler).

I just watched it last night and noticed it, too. Was it like that in the original version?
