Re: All Trek Blu-Rays

Does anybody know if there ever was BD Live content released for the blurays that have been released so far?

Re: All Trek Blu-Rays

I recently subscribed to Hulu plus, and I'm kind of pissed.

They have every season of every Trek show, which is all great, except TAS, which in my opinion is the BEST!!! jk lol

No, but really, they really should upload TAS into there service....

I did not know this. I have the TAS DVD set, but do not have Netflix sadly.
TAS is the one case where I can honestly say you're not missing much. TAS was made cheaply and made with the resolution of '70s TVs in mind. Even on the DVDs you can see dirt and hair caught in between the layers of the animation cells. In HD it's just more obvious.

Anything live-action Trek is totally worth watching/owning the HD version, though.
It doesn't look as muddy as the DVDs but it's certainly not an eye-opening difference like TOS or TNG. There's just not that much extra detail there. But it does look noticeably better to me than the TAS DVDs.

I'd pick up a TAS Blu-ray. Not sure why they're not doing one.
It's been a while since I've watched TAS, I'll have to go back and compare.

And yes I'd get a TAS BD set if they made one, for completest sake. Might as well have everything in as high resolution as possible I have fond memories of renting TAS video tapes in the '80s.

Yes for some reason the only streaming service to have TAS is Netflix. Amazon Prime and Hulu do not.

TAS is HD on Netflix. Not as great as Blu-ray would look but it's noticeably better than the DVDs.
Tracer Bullet, other than Tribbles, are they just upscales of the standard episodes?
I don't know, but I don't believe so. They look like HD masters to me.
Remember, just like TOS, TAS was done natively on 35mm film. So it's incredibly easy for CBS to have sent out the film to a post-house to have it digitally scanned in at 1080p.

I have no doubt CBS has a proper HD version around, hence the Netflix HD streams and the inclusion of MTMT on the TOS S2 BD.

Very good point. You know Netflix didn't do it themselves. Kinda makes you wonder what else is out there just waiting to be found.
