    I saw The Offspring last week on disc and noticed that the android version of Lal (male, Leonard Crofoot) had like a blocking light thing around his crotch in the episode to hide his privates! But later on when he is walking around the corridors with Data his crotch is very visible! Has anyone else noticed this as well or is it just me and it's not an edit and has always been there? Was this only on the DVD or was it on the transmitted episode as well though I can't recall and any tapes I made of this episode are long gone!

    Are you asking if we always saw Lal's crotch in the episode? Because the answer is yes. I'm not sure what the big deal is. Lal has no genitalia in their first stage, so walking around completely unclothed isn't much cause for a stir.

    I don't remember any “blocking light” and the screencaps on Trekcore sure don't show anything like that either …

    I've seen TNG so many time now that the only thing left to watch is people's crotches. As an aside, what do you suppose 24th century underwear is like? I'd imagine it's more comfortable and supple than what we have

    I don't think so. velour would be too hot and we can't have too much heat in the nether regions......or can we? bow-chicka-wow-wow

    Yeah, two access panel hatches at just the right places and in glorious HD. Impressive for something with big hands. The costumiers were having a bigger gag than writing the lyrics to "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island" on one of those maroon stickers there.

    Or if nothing else, "yuck".

    Or maybe not. :devil:
    :guffaw:

    I have no idea what you are even talking about. That little light reflecting on their crotch … that's your “blocking light shining away like a torch”? Are we looking at the same image?

    No I don't have a fetish about crotches but I did see that squiggle around that area of the costume and wondered if it was an edit but later on it's gone and it is there on the photo you put up so must be part of the show! :techman:

    Uh...are you talking about that tiny bit of light from below that is catching Lal's fingers, lower crotch, and left thigh?
