MSRP is the same on both seasons. The price will almost certainly go down (as it did for all three prior years) before the final release.

Well... ENT S1 is already out, no word yet on DS9 and Voy.
But if you want to support those to be released on BD, the absolutly WORST and contraproductive you could do is not buying the season packs now and waiting for a complete set!

DS9 and Voyager Blu-ray production is contingent on TNG Blu-ray sales, so I'd recommend buying now if you can afford it! The first season of Enterprise came out in March, and Season 2 is tentatively scheduled for this coming August; we'll get Seasons 3 and 4 next year if the schedule continues.

One of my favourite eps from this season is Night Terrors, minus most of the Troi scenes. The scene with Dr Crusher in the cargo bay with the corpses sitting up around her was great. I thought the music track also wasn't as bland as the standard stuff being used in most eps at the time.

I still have the VHS I bought 20 years ago of this and Identity Crisis when the BBC stopped showing TNG for 2 years because they thought it wasn't worth it anymore. One of the few TNG VHS releases to get a 15 rating when most had PG or U.

Nth Degree, Brothers, Clues, and Devils Due are also favourites.
The BBC stopped showing TNG because Sky bought the first run broadcast rights. I never really say this as a bad thing since the BBC were 3 years behind because they didn't start airing it until 1990.
I found out later on about Sky purchasing the rights but at the time I wrote a protest letter to the BBC and the response I got back stated that it was their decision to stop showing it. Saving face I suppose. It was a bad thing if you didn't have Sky. LOL.

Good news to hear ENT season 1 is on BD.


I hadn't thought of DS9 and VOY BD being contingent on TNG sales, but if they are, I think I will get them before, in that case. I just checked Amazon and prices have come down quite a bit too!

At the time I just thought that the series had ended after the conclusion to Best of Both Worlds. Wasn't until a couple of years later that I saw some of the VHS tapes in one of the high street stores and didn't recognize any of the episodes. Immediately bought one (I Borg/The Next Phase), confirmed that these were indeed new episodes to me, and then promptly went about gobbling up as many of the VHS tapes as I could find to fill in the gap from BOBW.

The BBC did air The Next Generation in its entirety though. I used to tape TNG from the BBC all the time. They may have been three years behind compared to the US, but they still aired the episodes ahead of the first run broadcasts on Dutch tv.

The BBC were a pain though as they'd often take good shows off to show stuff like snooker instead.

Unless Target has another deal where I essentially pay five bucks for the disc, I'll likely skip the Redemption "movie".

Not that I want to give anybody the impression I'm quietly obsessing over this or anything...

But I don't suppose TPTB can be persuaded to use the "Redemption" TV Movie release, as an excuse to go back in and restore the original framing on "Sins of the Father"? Include that episode uncropped from the safe area, as an extra?

Although, I guess then they'd get people complaining why not put "Reunion" on there as well.

Just a thought!

The season sets that are out are done. I wouldn't hold your breath for any redos.

Hope springs eternal.

Unfortunately, I feel like I may skip it too. I know I'm buying all the season sets. While I like having BOBW as a separate thing, I'm ultimately not sure it's worth it. I much prefer watching Part I with the cliffhanger ending. I wasn't blown away with the extra content (the takeaways I got from the special features were: Elizabeth Dennehy didn't know her lines, Westmore spray painted the Borg actors, and the cast loved the episodes). If that's all they can come up with for one of the greatest moments in Trek history, what can they find to make a good, but less popular, cliffhanger worth the extra purchase?

Agreed, except I appreciated the Elizabeth Dennehy interview. I'm excited at the prospect that they are getting some of these guest stars to come and talk about their time on the show, and Dennehy has a great personality. I hope they are able to get the guy who played Jellico, and maybe Matt Fewer too. Would be nice.
