    With upscaling her DVDs will actually look BETTER on a Bluray player...

    No. Upscaling does not work that way.

    How is it sloppy? And does it really matter if they used Troi from season 1 and other characters in different seasons?

    People are really reaching to try and shit on TNG being re-released on dvd.

    This is silly, they should have released the remastered episodes in standard definition.

    Because it doesn't really make sense to reissue the shitty masters from 2002 when you have ones that are of much better quality being produced now.

    I wonder how many people will buy these thinking they're the remastered versions?

    Too many.

    And I agree, the inconsistency with the box designs is a bit annoying.

    That's certainly fair, and my parents are the same way. They couldn't really care less about the picture quality, and don't even seem to notice when the picture is stretched out horizontally (making the actors all look short and squat).

    It drives me up the freakin wall, but to them it's just no big deal.

    What a waste of time and money!

    I vastly prefer the classy silver boxes over these new ugly covers! :ack:

    This is nothing more than a business tactic to clear out their warehouses of the unwanted DVDs, while passing it off as a new product. It's the same old product, but given a new coat of paint to entice consumers who don't know any better. Most of us either already own the original box sets or are getting the Blu-rays. Who at this point wants to drop $300+ on a TV show that's been on DVD for a decade, and has been replaced with a superior product at nearly the same price?

    Bad idea. All it would do is confuse the average Joe and reduce Blu-ray sales. The last thing TNG HD needs right now is new competition from the old product. Obviously the different departments at CBS are not talking to each other.

    If you buy these I hope you get electrocuted by your DVD/Bluray player through sheer universal righteous indignation.

    This is like saying I don't wear the latest glasses after my latest eye exam because I'm not interested in seeing things clearly or how they were meant to be. Electrocution for you.

    Electricity doesn't work like that, not before the Singularity nor afterward.

    Ah yes, but if there was universal righteousness, it would.

    Yeah, rape, murder, genocide, Universal Righteousness cares not. Buying a DVD when there's a Blu-Ray Available?! Fry that guy!

    Needless assumptions indeed.
