Watching Imaginary Friend and noticed that a blue screen shot was never filled. You can clearly see it when Troi and Clara leave ten forward. I don't know if it was original or not but seems to be a mistake none the less.
I just checked Netflix and the original was done properly as seen in the screencap provided.



Either way, I think a mistake like this is inexcusable...

In the original episode, there was another shot of the blue screen visible through the Ten Forward doors. This either wasn't fixed.

That blue really stands out. I can't believe they missed that.

This is something that CBS-D likely weren't aware of. If the FX were not detailed in the Okuda Notes supplied to CBS-D, then it wouldn't be on their radar.

Nevertheless, I'll flag it with them and perhaps it can be corrected for future broadcasts.

I ordered the set late, it should be here by Tuesday. Looking forward to it and sharing some thoughts.

Jay Chattaway did "Tin Man". Shocking, as it sounds NOTHING like any of the work he put in after, and likely because after that episode he was told by producers to "tone it down, make it bland, don't stir up my emotions". Actually telling a music composer "don't make music that manipulates my emotions" has got to be one of the most face palming things I've ever heard. I can understand a part of it, as Rick Berman wanted "let drama to be drama" rather than have the music carry it, but Jesus. You can tell how frustrated they sounded over being so restrained, but it payed the bills and fed the family I guess.
Makes me think of the scene in "Amadeus" when Mozart is told his music has "too many notes."

The heavy usage of the blurry fly by is really dissappointing for me. It always takes me out of an episode.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Finally started actually watching the episodes tonight and I still want to commend CBS-D for this effort, especially the outside shots. I watched both Darmok and Ensign Ro (Two terrific episodes) and the outside shots (especially the one of the beast on El a'dril) are spectacular.

As for the blurry shots, they don't bother me as much as they probably should. It's such a quick shot that if you blink you'll miss it. Looking forward to going deeper into this set and revisiting these episodes, which I haven't seen in a long while.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I was surprised at how much location shooting was done in season 5. The first 3 episodes (Darmok, Ensign Ro, and Silicon Avatar) all had the cast going on location (granted Darmok and Ro were to the same location and filming was able to overlap).

No wonder they needed Disaster as a bottle show to recoup some costs, but it still turned out to be a great episode!

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I like all the location shooting at the beginning of season 5 too!

It seems like early in the season is a good time to go on location. Deep Space Nine went on location at the beginning of seasons too if I recall. I remember an interview with Jeri Taylor where she said there was so much time with the first four episodes of a season, they could afford to get away from the sets.

Has the explosion of the alien warship in Unification pt.1 been mentioned?

I can't believe they didn't redo that one.

Why should they if the original materials are available? I thought it held up pretty well.

Besides, the CGI explosions thus far in TNG-HD have not been very good. Nothing beats actual pyrotechnics.

The ship is surrounded by that electrical effect, then they switch scenes to an explosion with no sign of that ship within the explosion.

I find it a very cheesy scene and somewhat jarring. They had better explosions in many other scenes throughout the series.

I can only imagine they didn't have a second model to blow up and didn't want to blow up the model they did have.

Even a so-so CGI redo would have been more seamless.

That's how effects were done back then. The image of the model jump-cuts to the explosion effect.
