Looks like a price match to Target is going to be the best deal once again (minus the $10 off which BB probably won't honor)
Some will some won't, it's always worth trying. I've never had a problem having my local Best Buy do the price match, but it may have something to do with the Target being right across the street
See, and I *did* have the problem with them not matching the "buy both get $10 off" even though there was also a Target in the same shopping center!

Looks like maybe the best thing for me would be to price match the S4 set to Target's $59.99 and then use an upgrade and save coupon (i.e. trade in a used DVD) to get the Redemption disc down to $9.99. Then I have $10 in rewards points so my total price should be $59.98 before tax, which would beat the Target deal by $3 -- and I'd essentially get the Redemption disc for free.

Nope, I like the new childbirth sequence much better. It's just obvious that's early 90s cgi in the old one...as good as it was for the time.

I think that's the problem, it's not the CGI from the 90s, it's new, recreated by Modern Video, but it doesn't hold up compared to today's CG or even the model work.

That said, I do believe that the new version is an improvement over the original, just that it could have been better.
Yes, this is what I meant.

One pixel wide and hundreds of pixels in length. That's the primary reason you can see it -- your eyes pick up on it as a sharp, light gray outline around the creature against the black background of space. The fact remains that it could have been easily avoided if the animator or compositor took the necessary steps to eliminate it. Again, they didn't either due to time constraints and/or lack of experience with CG animation.

And, in my defense, I did write that I thought it was a small error!

The site is sloooooooooooooooooooow.

Edit: Finally it loads. Took a few minutes. Having seen plenty of HTV and MV shots, it's really obvious when I see a shot done by CBS-D. There's almost literally an aura around the effects shots.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Sadly another cool "to be continued" moment is lost with the combination. Much like with BOBW, I'll watch it once, and then switch back to the normal episode presentation. But the bonus features alone makes it worth owning going forward. (Especially since it costs a net of $3 at Target)

One of the commenters on TrekCore said they should have included a "x months later" subtitle when it cuts to Part II. That would have been a good idea.

A shame that the (relatively) poor bonus features on Season 4 weren't supplimented by the bonus features that are on this separate release instead.

If you put Season 4s docs with the Redemption doc, it almost makes it a decent package.

I wonder why Amazon isn't dropping the price more like they did with season 3. I have $44 in Amazon credits that I'd love to use but I'd love to use them even more if season 4 was selling for $60.

The price should drop to $60 on release day at the latest. Amazon will be matching Target's price as always.

I remember for season 3 they dropped the price on the Sunday night before the set was released. I still think that will happen for Season 4.

Amazon UK emailed me today to say my set had been dispatched and should arrive by Monday. Awesome!
