To those complaining about the extras... seriously!? These extras are amazing when you consider how many years ago we're talking here.
I'm psyched!

Yeah, for a Trek release these extras are wild. Berman never let deleted scenes or gag reels out of his iron grip. Nice to finally see some. I just hope the quality of season 2 holds up to Season 1. CBS D really outdid themselves. I don't want to see differences in color and execution in seasons 2, 4, and 6.

I'd definitely rather have a season every six months or so than to have a difference in quality for various seasons. Oh well.

Me too. Perhaps CBS and the partner company don't have an issue with the impulse engine changing from orange to pinkish red, but it really bugs me. The colours of season one were vibrant and looked correct, but from what I've seen of Season 2 so far, things look more faded out or something. The colour of the impulse engine should not be so drastically different. I had hoped having Dan Curry on board we wouldn't have seen differences like this...but I'm hoping he also didn't intentionally change it due to personal preferences. I mean, it wasn't red in Generations.

Who is complaining about the extra's? If you read properly you will see the only ire people have had is with being mislead. I too am "psyched"!

Agreed, I think everyone will agree that the VAM in Season 2 is amazing, probably the best of any Trek released yet. I think the "letdown" many people are expressing is that these other extras were really hyped up and expected to be revolutionary, but IMO deleted scenes and bloopers are a routine (even expected) addition to most DVD/Bluray releases.

That said, I'm hyped about S2 and December can't get here soon enough!

I'm hoping to not pay more than sixty dollars for it, which is what I paid for season one at Best Buy.

Routine and expected for most shows made today. TNG however is a show that was made 25 years ago where bonus features and extras were not even contemplated. Heck, the bloopers from season one looked like they were made for those who worked on the show and were never meant for the public to see since it has adult language and very blatent sexual references. When bloopers are made today, the actors know that what's being filmed will most likely be seen by the whole world. Back than, not the case.

Even with the Amazon price it's better than what you would have had to pay for the DVDs a decade ago, which had a retail price of $139.99.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank:
#113 in Movies & TV
#35 in Movies & TV > Blu-ray

Whoa, that's a huge jump in sales. I guess that's what happens when the price is lowered to a more reasonable amount.

I want to preorder this so bad, but my PC might not be able to play thanks to encryption nonsense.
