Time for a season six thread yet?
That occurs once there is news. There hasn't been news on season 6, and I would not expect there to be any until at least March.
That's too damn long to wait, although it does give me some time to save up another £65 for the last two seasons.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I've been watching episodes on this set since Christmas, and I'm still absolutely stunned at the upgrade these episodes are getting.

It's a shame about the 2 minutes of footage that could not be found, but I'm stunned at just how much they did find, and that this endeavor is even possible.

Isn't there a season 6 trailer on the series 5 DVD?

The trailer for season 6 has not yet been released. It's expected in early 2014 (probably the next month or two, if I had to guess).

The trailers have gotten progressively goofier. I wonder if season 6 will go with the flow.

I just hope they give us a peek at the DS9 station footage from "Birthright," or even the runabout footage from "Timescape."

"Even WESLEY is back!" Ba doo boom.



It would be nice if they return to the more serious tone of the first 3 promo's.

Hard to believe it's been six months tomorrow since season 5's trailer was released. As soon as I got past Time's Arrow, I was hungry for more.

My anticipation won't die until I can watch What You Leave Behind in 1080p.
I need to get back to season 5. I watched up to Disaster and than started X-files and haven't watched both in a while. Maybe it's the waiting for season 6 news and the release date that is holding me back. I'll get back to it eventually.

^Speaking of X-Files, that's coming to Blu-ray also. Remastered by HTV...

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I don't know anything about how X-Files was mastered, but if film masters simply needed to be transferred, I'm not sure how HTV could screw it up.

EDIT: Okay, so in google-searching "X-Files remaster HTV," I came across an article about "illuminate Hollywood," which appears to be HTV under a new name. When did they change their name? And did it have anything to do with the terrible job on TNG season two?

This is the article I found.
The iConform technology is designed to bring programs up to the current HD and 4K media standards and thus hopefully to generate new life -- and extract new revenue -- from dormant assets.

Stateside, illuminate Hollywood has already remastered series for CBS, Fox and Universal, among others. The solution has been used, for example, to create the latest HD versions of The X-Files, 24, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Pee-wee’s Playhouse. From there these series can go on to find new viewers in the digital space and other yet to be developed outlets.

FYI: Their former full name was "HTV Illuminate", so Illuminate was always there.
According to this press release they changed their name in early 2013 when they bought up a production studio, so they now do both production and post-production.

Well, the press release isn't going to say, "and because we botched a number of high profile releases and want to hide that fact..."

Then again, they aren't hiding the fact that they did season two of Star Trek: The Next Generation -- although it isn't as easy to find this information as it was on their old website. So, it's probably for the stated reasons.

HTV did garbage work on TNG S2. I'm not touching anything else they work on in the future.

Even Criterion has put out a few bad transfers. Having said that, in addition to reading reviews (as I always do), I'll probably pause for an extra second or two if I hear HTV was involved in the restoration of something I'm considering buying.
