Watched Where No One Has Gone Before and was slightly disappointed by the remastering. I saw a lot of white specks and print damaged that hadn't been removed. Just watch the dark sickbay scenes.
I didn't notice anything, lol. Though I did love that they added the warp flare against the starfield when they first begin the experiment...

I've seen that issue with a lot of scenes set in darkened rooms. I suspect it's something to do with how they were shot, and it would have just been too time-consuming to fix every one.

Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

Just watched Lonely Among Us, and it's a lot better than I remembered. Sure it doesn't have the most complex plot, and is basically just another alien possession story, but it was still a fairly well-executed one, I thought.

There's a nice sense of atmosphere, the scenes between the crew are well written (even if they do seem awfully slow to figure out what's going on), Data has some fun moments as Sherlock Holmes, and we get to see cool things like the dress uniforms, the Sensor Maintenance room, and some new aliens.

And as goofy as it is, the end of the episode where Picard's energy somehow sneaks back onboard the ship was charming as hell and actually kind of worked. It's just hard not to smile when you see that "P" form on Geordi's station.

The thing that disappointed me about "Where No Man Has Gone Before" is that during the filming of the sickbay scene apparently no-one told Eric Menyuk about the boogers in his nose. Eww.

The episode itself looked just gorgeous to me. Still one of my favorites from early TNG.

I watched Where No One yesterday (was and still is one of the grandest episodes of TNG - simply amazing), and I didn't notice it either. I did notice more grain in the dark scenes, but that's natural.

I've been watching the episodes in order and I haven't got through all of them yet but I did notice in Haven the voices sound like they're being played from a tape recorder or something and not coming from the actors mouths. It was only at the beginning before the title sequence.

The stereo track on Haven sounds alright, but it's labeled FRA.

Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

I watched Lonely Among Us the other day and noticed another "P" appear just before it appeared on Geordi's console. It was very brief and on one of the science stations. I also thought the effects of the The Last Outpost were done very well, especially when the guardian appears.

Yea, it was less noticeable in the SD version... I was showing my dad the difference in quality between SD and HD for 11001001... and when the Enterprise is pulling past the camera through the doors, during the interior shot at the beginning... he's like "Look! You can see right through the bussards!" when referring to the original SD transfer.

Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

I watched Stardate Revisited. Man I had not idea how over budget the show was. I have to say though, season 1 is still the crappiest looking season, and the worst stories of the whole run.

After watching a few episodes of Season 1, it is even more dated than the Original Series. It hasn't aged well. The original series hit their story strides right off the bat. It took TNG until season 3 to find itself.

Strange...I was just thinking how timeless the show looked earlier today and it comes off more cinematic than it did with the SD version(an impression which is verified for myself by both my own reaction and that of others to the theatrical screenings)...unlike even shows of today it looks like they were trying to make little mini-movies. Comparing it to TOS? Well since I was there and watching TOS 25 years after it was made I think STNG looks less dated at 25 years in 2012 than TOS did in 1991.

I would agree. Some of the stories are clearly dated (and for some reason feel like they were lifted from old episodes of Buck Rogers or Time Tunnel), but the show itself looks absolutely fantastic now.

If it wasn't for the feathery 80s hairstyles and 4:3 framing it would probably hold it's own with any show on air today. At least visually speaking.

Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

Ok I just watched Justice on this set, and I'd love to know how they made an episode with a whole bunch of half-naked people running around... with apparently no hot girls in it whatsoever!

Yeah the main girl Rivan is cute and all, but in HD it becomes abundantly clear that she's the ONLY one. Lol

Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

The Blu-ray.com Australia forum thread has been updated with insider information from Paramount Australia: corrected sets are 'due' between August 20 and 30.

That's a heck of a turnaround given that the sets were already pressed and delivered to stores in Australia. Hopefully that's the new release date and not just when Paramount Australia will receive updated masters.

I wouldn't be surprised if that date still slips back into early September as JB Hi-Fi report, but if CBS and Paramount do manage to get the set out within that date range, we can't say that they didn't do their darndest to get this fixed ASAP. I just hope they manage that around the world.

Just looked at that Mighty Ape site that's mentioned on the Blu-ray.com Australia thread. If the TNG set is priced in $NZ, bloody hell, it's cheap in Sterling. Looking at about £37.
