Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Do we know if the same colorist has been used on Season 6?

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I think the difference between MoaM and the standalone deleted scenes we're getting is that MoaM was quite a bit more substantial. Most of the episodes that have had deleted scenes released were only few (often just one) short scene. Whereas MoaM was several minutes that really added to the episode. I'm ecstatic that they've included the deleted scenes in any capacity, it really makes me wish they had done that from the beginning of the project.

That changes with Chain of Command and Birthright. There's quite a significant amount of material that was culled.

The difference with Measure of a Man is that they had a completed workprint of the extended version to use as reference for the reconstruction.

Why not use the script?

A script only provides the lines and brief descriptions to set the scene. The workprint provides them with the information to reconstruct the scenes with the same shots and timing at the director and editor originally intended.

That's not to say it couldn't be done without the workprint, it's just easier and more accurate to the "original vision" if they have one.

Excellent! Though I did not have enough DS9 in my TNG trailer ;p

More DS9 was needed

Chain of Command trailer was even better! Tempted to watch it now but remembered that the next time I see that ep it must be in HD...

The dark gloomy torture set and Madred look great in HD so DS9 should look great also

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I've never understood the apparent love of "Frame of Mind." Stupid episode from beginning to end, written by someone trying to write about Jungian archetypes without actually knowing anything about Jungian archetypes, or, for that matter, anything about basic psychology.

You do know all the original TOS FX were retained in the remaster, right?
Yep, I am aware of this and purchased the Bluray sets on sale for 50 dollars because the original effects were available.
In that case, I'm still confused by your earlier quote:

If CBS-D had done to TNG what they did with TOS, I would never have bought the seasons. I wanted to see the show, with all the original footage, as it was never capable of being broadcast back in the day.
Isn't that exactly what TOS remastered is?

That aside, I totally agree with you about TNG. The model shots are beautiful and hardly need replacing with cheap-ass video-game-looking CGI.

I wonder if we'll see any fan edits using the deleted scenes.

For me personally, it's just a great showcase for Jonathan Frakes, whose acting I adore. Plus, it got a wonderfully eerie atmosphere and Twilight Zone-y vibe going on. I guess I just don't care all that much about real world psychology.

The story goes absolutely nowhere. "Thank God it was all just a dream..." TZ is my favorite series of all time, and had this been an actual TZ episode, I think it would have been an average episode at best.

I do like Frakes, though, and I think he's generally under-appreciated. His character kind of got short-changed after BOBW.

I certainly see where you are coming from. I, too, love the original Twilight Zone. And although I was purely talking about the similar tone of the episode, there are actually some TZ episodes with plots very similar to "Frame of Mind". The classic "Shadow Play" (What is reality?, no-one believes the main protagonist) comes to mind. As do "Perchance to Dream" (psychology sessions, it's all just a dream), "A World of Difference" (What is reality?, no-one believes the main protagonist) and "The Midnight Sun" (it's all just a dream) – all of which are some of my favorite episodes.

I'm not saying "Frame of Mind" is as well-written as those, but it's certainly in the tradition of those classics. Plus, it's part of a character-driven, 90s sci-fi-adventure show, not an anthology. So it's bound to be different.

Riker is my favorite TNG character. There are times when they wrote him as a douche, but all in all he's the character I most like to watch. Plus, the episodes focussing on him tend to be my favorites.

Count me in among those who are big Riker fans. He had a lot of potential as a character. It's really too bad he wasn't developed more. I totally would have watched a "Captain Riker" show.
