I feel the same. I'd rather wait for a quality product.

but in the UK, if I want to watch all of TNG in HD, I'm looking at a cost of £300 (average 40-ish per season).
The Italian sets can be had for around £30 each from Amazon.it. Full English 7.1 audio and subs as per the UK sets, but the packaging is in Italian. I picked up season 2 for £18. Well worth the money.

The first 5 seasons have cost me about £150.

Seasons 3-5 are currently a total of EUR 93 (£79) from Amazon.it. Postage to be added on. I know one season costs EUR 7 delivery.

Surely it's a case of IF CBS do DS9? There's been no announcement AFAIK.

Just watching The Chase--one of Trek's greatest episodes--on SD the other night, made me crave for this set to come out sooner! But count me on the "wait for better quality" side.

Watching "Time's Arrow" Part I. Great how clear all the San Francisco scenes are crystal clear now. They were always so fuzzy on TV showings and VHS. Maybe DVD too. One of my favourite time travel shows, because it's reminiscent of TOS and a shame they couldn't have picked it for a TV Movie edit. I'd have imported it, as I will eventually have to do with "Chain of Command".

There again, I suppose I'd have quite liked that uninterrupted option for all the two-parters which weren't feature-length to begin with.

That reminds me that the Cardassian transporter FX were used for that episode. That's something of a taste of DS9 in addition to the station and runabout we'll get with the TNG season six set.

That is probably the best thing I have ever seen in my life with my eyes.

More on this, please?

+1 for quality before speed.

This is being done for posterity, and I believe it should be done right. This is not about short term gains, but the long term viability of TNG.

To CB: Get it right guys, take the time you need. Then we can all enjoy the show we all collectively love with no regrets that it was rushed.

Oh, and thanks, CBS.

The Chase is one of my favorites of the entire series, as well. I had been kind of nonchalant about Season 6, but reminding me that it includes The Chase has increased my interest a bit. Thanks.

^ Where did you see that? Amazon (the US version) has no entry for S6 yet.
