Hmm, only 14GB for the two-parter. I guess they just pulled these right off the S3 and S4 discs without a different encode. Too bad, I was kinda hoping for something like the sampler's 19GB. Would have been really cool to get something that filled a BD50...

Anyone else notice the disclaimer:

REFUND! jk

So sad that history keeps repeating itself: the studios learned little, from the BBC fiasco over Doctor Who, about preserving film art for posterity.

I guess that's the curse of commerce: so blinded by $ signs, shoot yourself in the foot.

Those missing 5GB are the result of using 3 seconds of SD videotape material that don't require much bitrate?

Not sure if serious, or sarcastic...

(Well, except that last part.)

I think total they've lost less than 20 seconds over three season running 26 45min episodes. Not in addition to all the bonus dailies, screen tests, and blooper reels they've pulled and converted.

Sure, it's a shame, but I can't get to anal over it seeing how these are coming out. That they preserved so much in a time where people weren't really planning ahead to the value of their legacy catalogs, says something.

Now the DNR applied to FX shots, the poor CGI / touch up, and just plain screwing up of composites and rotoscopes that horrible, horrible HTV-Illuminate did? That's a botched job to get pissed about. You think they'd have learned after screwing up Patton. Nope. Hopefully they go under and spare other classics from their not too keen eye for restoration.

The Season 2 Excelsior ship looks like it was commandeered then repainted by the Romulans or the Klingons.

Upon viewing Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 3 blu-ray, disc 4, I noticed there was an audio sync problem with the episode "THE OFFSPRING". Anyone else notice this ?

Is it in any particular spot -- or better yet, can you give us the time this happens at? I haven't watched this episode all the way through yet. smile.gif

BTW, for those of you that have been printing these out and using them in your sets, here's Season Three's insert (as always, printing size should be 4.75 inches by 5.75 inches):

And here's the thread at TrekBBS where you can get the first two seasons inserts as well if you haven't already:

Why is every season getting more expensive, Season 4 is $114.99 on Amazon pre-order. That is way to much, I am sure it will come down close to release date, but will it come down by half? I think $60 is a fair price for these seasons.

I'm veering a bit off-topic here but it would be nice if someone had the resources (unless it's been done already) to put together inserts or even several page booklets that include short plot synopsis for each episode. I understand why just episode titles and bare credits are used due to space, but even though I'm familiar with the show, I find I often get ep titles mixed up and load up the wrong disc thinking I'm about to watch a specific episode.

Even better, season booklets that reprinted the detailed episode guide/critiques that appeared in the old Cinefantastique magazines would be great although I understand copyright issues even done via the wild west of the internet. I used to have a complete run of that magazine up through the late 90's and I really enjoyed their Star Trek, X-Files and other sci-fi/fantasy series guides. I recently looked through various web and even torrent sites looking for scans or text format copies of those specific magazines to no avail for just this purpose for my own benefit.

I know it's a huge jump from booklets to what I'm about to suggest, but have you ever considered using something like XBMC in your home theater? You can use software to rip 1:1 backups of your BDs or DVDs. I've got my BD TV shows backed up and use XBMC to play them. I can browse through all my TNG episodes as if it were Netflix, with a screen shot and episode synopsis, all gathered automatically. You can even configure how the material is presented to you or have it provide YouTube trailers, so many options. No wrong discs or confusion.

I'm with you here... I've been tempted to create at least a list myself, even if I didn't fancy it up... because there are times when I want to watch a specific episode but I only remember it by plot, not episode name... Some episode names are obvious, while others are not... and it can be a devil of a time trying to find the needle in the haystack without episode descriptions.

It's funny to me that some of the more expensive TV shows (Trek) skimp on the booklets... while all the Warner TV shows I've been buying (Fringe, Supernatural, etc.) come with nice little blurbs about the episode in a booklet.

I've been tempted to put something like this together in the past but considering the sheer volume of discs and digital material I have, it's just too much time consuming work. Add to that my receiver is a pre-HDMI Pioneer Elite VSX-59TXi (last one with built in laserdisc ac3 rf demodulator) and it becomes putting together a PC Media Server with a digital co-axl or optical audio output card as well as an HDMI video card or a new receiver.... nahhhh.

Always like that, and it's supposed to be like he's about to cry.
I'd imagine Worf was rather upset by the fact that Picard was robbed of his humanity, and was doing his very best to remain stoic.

Speaking of Worf:

July 30, 2013 - Redemption 2-parter standalone
http://www.amazon.com/Star-Trek-Generation-Redemption-Blu-ray/dp/B00CLA3Y2I/

I hope it doesn't come with exclusive content like BOBW. I can't afford to buy all the seasons AND all the two-parter releases.
post #2357 of 2431
I'm just waiting for the inevitable boxset that comes with all 7 seasons and the Telemovies as well as at least one disc of exclusive bonus content. We all know it's coming.

It does carry exclusive content. So you're screwed.

post #2360 of 2431
Honestly, I'm far more interested in the episodes than I am the exclusive bonus content... and I decided already it just wasn't worth the $10-$15 to buy those special releases just to get 30 mins or so of extras..... when for $50-$60 I get 20 or so episodes of the show plus a whole bunch of extras.

So I'm content in ignoring these special releases unless they show up for $5 somewhere down the road.

Love it or hate it, CBS is gauging the cost benefit of doing this with DS9/VOY.

If $15 for a addition disc with additional VAC help get us DS9 restored correctly, I'll throw a few bones more for it.

...and the result of them screwing up season 2 means I'm done buying the seasons unless it's fixed - which it's doubtful it will be. I'm one and done.

I'm not going to pay for the bilge water they dumped onto the season 2 discs and it's not worth buying the rest if I won't have a complete set.

I may as well rent them on the occasions where i want to see them and save my money. I'm only buying a complete series - and only if they're all done right.

The majority of season 2 actually looks fine.

The problem is, the majority of season 1 looks exceptional.

"Fine" isn't good enough when mixed with unnacceptable.

July 30th along with Redemption.

Here's some info about the Redemption release, including side-by-side SD/HD screenshots.

http://trekcore.com/blog/2013/06/tng-redemption-blu-ray-new-hd-trailer-stills-and-comparison-and-analysis/

I for one will probably skip the Redemption release, even though it has some exclusive bonus content. Just as happy to view the two-parter on the season DVDs when they're released.
post #2369 of 2431
So I slip in and out of this thread occasionally, trying to see if any of the seasons are worth buying (or should I just wait for the 7 season boxset...).

Season 1 seemed fine and season 2 seemed to suck. Are there any thoughts on season 3? Other than the 1 audio glitch that is mentioned on the previous page.

You know what? The cake tastes exactly the same.

You're overreacting here. S2 isn't bad. It doesn't look bad. It isn't "perfect" but then again neither was the original show.

When S2 was being done, S1 wasn't done yet. There was no template, no "bar" was set. If S2 had come out first nobody would have had a problem with it.

It's like rejecting a bunch of 22kt gold because it isn't 24kt.
