5.0 out of 5 stars The Next Generation Never Looked this Good! January 31, 2012
By BK
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying Star Trek: The Next Generation has never looked this good! Having seen TNG from the first airing, syndication, and on DVD, I'll say without reservation this is by far the best quality release.

As soon as I started watching Encounter at Farpoint, I couldn't help but stare at the detail. The extra detail is amazing, especially in the effects shots. It's hard to believe that so much was washed out in the lower resolution original. But the new transfer of the film really shines.

The uniforms pop, you can see the detail in the fabric. The Klingon costumes in Sins of the Father really show this. The space aliens in Farpoint look amazing. Until seeing this on Blu-Ray I knew they were both the same color - but they're not! The rebalanced color looks great. It's no longer washed out and it really brings out the details.

The only possible negative I would point out is that you can see some of the imperfections in the makeup. Worf's especially, including some stray hair in one scene. Everyone else has lost their smoothed out unblemished skin, now replaced with a more natural texture. At one point I swear you can see a red mark on Riker's forehead.

One of the most notable things that's fixed is the blue glow on the left side of the screen. They finally removed it!

None of the over smoothing from DNR that happened in the movie releases is present here. The picture quality is truly top notch. If they do the rest of the series this way, this will be by far the definitive version.

I'm also ecstatic that they didn't redo the visual effects in CGI. I still think actual filmed models look more realistic if done well. There's just something that CGI doesn't quite replicate.

5.0 out of 5 stars A word to the wise on ratios and HDTV's... February 2, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This is in reply to all the "It's not fair, it doesn't fill my TV... why do I have these black borders at the sides?" people:

The ratio on the Blu-ray discs is the same as it ever was for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Same as it was shot in, same as it was broadcast in, same as it was presented on VHS and the same as it was presented on DVD. Why on earth some people expect Blu-ray to magically alter this situation is beyond me, but you only have to note the two and one star reviews to see they are. The series was filmed in 4:3, a quarter of a century ago, long before anyone envisaged that we'd all have 16:9 widescreen TV's in our homes in the future. "But I could make my Star Trek TNG DVD's play in widescreen", I hear you cry. No, actually you couldn't. What you were doing was stretching or zooming the image to fill your widescreen TV. This is fake widescreen, and something purists never do, but was quite easy to achieve with a standard definition DVD, on a standard definition DVD player, over a standard definition connection. This is HD though, and stretching or faking widescreen is not really an option. "Why?", I hear you cry. Well, HDTV resolutions are either 720p or 1080i/p... 1280x720 or 1920x1080. These are 16:9 'widescreen' resolutions by default. This means that your Blu-ray player HAS to display everything as a 16:9 image. In the case of films and TV shows shot and framed for cinema or 16:9 broadcast, it will fill your widescreen TV. Sometimes with small black borders at the top and bottom if they have chosen to present the original cinematic ratio. Now, when they are presenting a 4:3 image on HD Blu-ray... this same rule applies. It HAS to be displayed as part of a 16:9 frame.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing transformation January 20, 2012
By Derrick
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The original masters for this show, edited on videotape, were so bad, in my opinion, and the transformation into HD by painstakingly piecing together original film elements and when necessary, recreating the CGI, is being handled so well, that the end result to the eyes, is just stunning. For a fan of TNG, this is really a priceless addition to one's library. I'll be purchasing every season to encourage them to do the same thing with Deep Space Nine.

Edit: This sampler pack actually has better video quality than the season release set probably due to the fact that they crammed more episodes onto the discs resulting in more compression. The quality of this sampler is stunning.. worth it just for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Seek Out HD and New Resolutions February 1, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This TNG Blu-ray is a gorgeous new look at our old friend Star Trek: The Next Generation. I grew up on the series, it was my absolute childhood favorite, and I still love the show. From my old recorded VHS tapes to the DVD boxsets, TNG has long been trapped in a less-than-stellar medium. While the DVDs got the job done, the show was definitely showing its age. Because it was edited on video, many pessimists across the web figured there would never been a genuine HD presentation of TNG.

Thankfully on the approach to its 25th anniversary CBS has begun the massive project of returning to the original film negatives and reconstructing the show in HD. Having now viewed this sampling of their work I can say this project is a great way to honor TNG's legacy and truly worth the re-purchasing of the show. The new HD transfer really makes colors pop, and the fine detail is infinitely better than the old DVDs. Best of all are the original special effects in all their old-school miniature glory!

"Encounter At Farpoint": TNG's first episode, though lacking somewhat in storytelling and some of the performances, finds new life in the HD transfer. The special effects in this episode are gorgeous. The scenes featuring the Enterprise are absolutely striking and far more interesting to me than the most overloaded CGI scene from modern movies. It was a lot of fun seeing the new fine detail presented here, from the fantastic model work done on the Enterprise to the decoration of the individual sets.

Unfortunately you can now see little flaws that might have been missed on the original releases. The first I noticed being bits of fluff on the carpets of the bridge, I guess housekeeping didn't vacuum the carpets before the Enterprise left spacedock!

The people who did the color correction exaggerated the saturation, contrast and white balance which gives the episodes an obnoxious candy look. Read more

It's region-free, and why would it be alright for new movies, but not 20+ year old TV shows?

Original 4:3 broadcast format vs. 16:9 widescreen presentation
I don't understand why anyone would expect a television series from the 1980s to be in a widescreen format.

Will the original 4:3 composition please stand up?
There is one issue in cropping the overscan bits of the frame like Sins did. HDTV's still keep an overscan option by default. If you have overscan on your HDTV. A bit of the text. Mainly when the credits are on the right of Wesley, are cut off. The Overscan areas should be preserved. Out of 178... Read more
