Well, they might not have put the Abramsprise into "The naked now"-remastered, but here is a look at some of the other mistakes/bloopers that were fixed that not everybody might have noticed, yet. This includes visible camera/lighting equipment, visible studio ceilings, a previously visible flowerpot in the middle of a jungle and some other nice surprises. :-)

Here's the article at EAS:

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

Wow, very cool. Didn't realize they had touched up so many little errors like that. Although to me the coolest is still the new holodeck shot in Farpoint. The new version just looks about a million times more real and believable than the static old one.

And is it just me, or does that look like a completely different woman in the HD shot of Haven vs the SD?

Same woman, just roughly four times the resolution.

Don't see this mentioned. Per Homemediamagazine, Season one is the 4th best selling Blu - Ray of its release week.

They don't provide sales figures just percentage versus the top Selling release.

Thenumbers also reports this, 4th place.

The say 95,435 units sold for 5.725 million in sales.

Thanks for that. Some of these I can understand, but why did they have to cut out the hand taking the glass in "Angel One"? This has always been one of my favorite bloopers. (Almost as hilarious as McCoy shoving away Kirk's accidentally dropped phaser in "Space Seed". )

Pretty solid sales figures... considering S1 is one of the least liked. I'd say they're well on their way to recouping that $9 million they put into it, even subtracting the cost of the disc replacement program (if every single consumer participated, it would cost them about $2 per disc, so about $572,610). But I doubt everyone is even aware of the problem.

Here's hoping they recognize that pricing the sets below $60 will make them more money in the long run.

And that's just for the first week. There's still probably a ton of people who haven't picked one up yet, but are planning to.

Actually its only part of the week. And its one of the better performances of TV shows on BluRay's even for new shows.

Interesting side, the releases in 1st-3rd all did have the full week (ie not new releases) to have sales.

BAsed on my tracking of sales for various shows expect 4 times that to be purchased this year. Too bad all teh money doesn't cover the upgrade cost, but still not bad at all.

Agreed. The MSRP should have started at $59.95, but Paramount will never learn. They expect fans to shell out the coin despite the economy. At $60 its a good selling point... not so much at $100+

Why should it? It's obviously selling well enough at its current price point, and Paramount's making an extra $20 per copy that they wouldn't have at the lower MSRP.

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

I just watched "The Last Outpost" last night and I think I spotted something that wasn't caught in the EAS article. There are a few shots when coming back from commercial break a bit a ways into the episode where we see the viewscreen from Tasha's position behind the railing with the Marauder on the screen. If you look down on the right side of the screen near the emergency turbolift you can see some sort of leg that is part of the studio equipment!

Check it out!

I was going to hold off and wait to buy the blu-ray, but I couldn't resist. The price came down on amazon so I had to buy it and it does look amazing! I'm really happy with it, except for one thing (besides the audio issues), I really wish CBS would have left the old Paramount A Viacom Company logo at the end of the episode credits. And then add the new CBS logo. I know it sounds nitpicky, but it's something I really like to see with old shows. I have the Dennis the Menace series on DVD and love to see that old Screen Gems logo. Heck, even the Brady Bunch DVDs kept the old Paramount A Gulf + Western logo.
