Really looking forward to this set, but I'm still befuddled over the marketing strategy they are going for now. There's no hype for it, no more theater screenings which brought TNG fans together and filled theater houses, and maybe no deals. Hopefully the Amazon price goes down again they it typically does on Sundays. I just wish they were as excited for Season 5 as they were for Seasons 1-2. It just feels like that honeymoon period is gone, which I guess was inevitable.
It could be worse. No one seems to give a sh*t at all about the ENT blu-ray sets.

Honestly, I think they're releasing the TNG sets too close together. There's no time to build up hype or fans appetite between releases.

I'm not even sure I'm going to pick up season five at this point. Just too much of an overload.

Are going picking up the ENT sets, too, or just the TNG sets?

I've just been buying the TNG sets. Paid way too much for the Enterprise DVD's that I own and have barely watched to justify repurchasing.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I've been only getting TNG as well. Would like to get the first two seasons of ENT for all that VAM, but having revisited the show on Netflix I just didn't enjoy the show that much, and great bonus material isn't enough for me to justify spending all those bucks. Maybe when I find them real cheap, maybe. I'm definitely getting the third and fourth seasons for next year.

Has anyone seen any retailers mention a $59.99 price yet? Retailers all seem to have it at $79.99 right now.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Comparing some of the screencaps between the old DVDs and blu-ray really shows the benefits of this remastering. For such a long time the show used to look flat and as a result sometimes felt unremarkable, even when compared to the 2004 DVD release of TOS as that was at least produced on film rather than video. This screen comparison I put here really sums it up for me, and this is only when the HD cap is resized to the DVD's native 480.


DVD 2002



Blu-ray 2013



The TNG cast were not kidding when they say the show now looks like it was shot yesterday. It really does. This kind of clarity adds something to these TNG viewings. Now looking just as good as its written.

I love the colour correction and the improved clarity. Even season 5 had a yellowish tinge to most of its scenes. Glad to see in the remastering that it's no longer present!

I would love to see a proper remastering of the Star Trek movies. The TNG blu rays blow the movie blu ray releases out of the stars.

Both Picard (head top) & Data's (forehead) are blown out on the remaster...and didn't need to be...but it is what it is. (One of my day to day jobs is color correction)

I'll accept this, and even some minor crushing, as long as the horrible, ultra drab, washed out visual sheen of Season 5 is alleviated.

^^I'm with ya.

I had no idea just how bad/inconsistent the DVD sets were until the Remastering was done. Though I did know Season 1 looked just bad from the getgo on DVD & Broadcast.

If that's the extent of blown out whites, then it's fine by me.

Compare that to the Ghostbusters Blu-rays:
