TNG BR case covers

Ok i just bought TNG blu ray season 1-5, and i notice that season 1 has no dust cover, while the rest come with covers, so i was wondering if this was normal or did they send me one without the cover, no big deal, i was just wondering, i am sure i can control my OCD and live without the cover.

(Sorry my phone is complete rubbish picture taking wise)

Re: TNG BR case covers

Same with me for S6. I got it on ebay and the seller had a bunch of them w/o slipcovers, I wasn't paying attention.

I think releases after the first run don't include a slipcover. I just missed a S6 slipcover (also on ebay) so I'm keeping an eye out for another one.

Paramount does not sell them separately, I checked.

I'm not sure I can control my OCD, I will get a slipcover...I will get a slipcover.

This is correct. Typically only the first run includes the slipcover.

Re: TNG BR case covers

I throw all the slipcovers into the recycle bin anyway. Seriously, why do these things even exist at all? They show exactly the same things that the BR case itself does. So what practical function could a slipcover possibly have?

Re: TNG BR case covers

At least the BR cases aren't as pathetic as the original DVD cases were. Back when I was collecting those, I threw the entire packaging in the bin (oh yeah, when I want to watch one, I just love to have to take out a box from another box and flip it open about FIVE FUCKING TIMES ), and put the DVDs into those Case Logic binders. Nice to see that's not necessary anymore...

You need to go and fish those back out of the bin, then send S1 to Haggis and send S6 to me.

And it's funny, I removed the slipcovers from all my Doctor Who blu rays and left them on the TNG ones. But I must have TNG S6!

Re: TNG BR case covers

If anyone has season one cover they don't want, they'll have my eternal gratitude. It's the only one of my seven seasons without the slipcase, and when I look at them on the shelf, it's . . .irritating.

You have all seven seasons of TNG on Blu-ray, one of them is missing a slipcase, and all you can say is "irritating"?

It is. . . .very irritating.

I will give you £3 for them each, then i will charge Ar-Pharazon £20 for season 6 one.

Hey i am Scottish, not my fault.

Re: TNG BR case covers

As annoying as the DVD cases were I had to keep them out of, well, "keeping it in the original state." At the time this was the first TV series I bought on DVD and it was TNG! The look of the cases I liked so I just dealt with them.

I sort of wish the BD cases were fancier or something instead of just looking like regular BD cases. Normally with BDs I do toss the slip covers but kept them for the TNG cases because, well, TNG on BD!!!!!!!!!

Re: TNG BR case covers

There must be so many people with two sets of Season one given the reissue due to the sound faults. Hopefully they've still got both the slipcases.

The reissue just sent you the corrected discs in sleeves and you replaced the discs in the box, doing whatever with the other discs. It's not like they sent you a whole new, complete, set since all of the discs werent affected.

Didn't Amazon buyers get complete replacement sets? I remember there were a glut of the original issues on eBay when people got the replacements.
