5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the TOS Blu-Ray August 6, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Content

Well, it's Season One. Having watched it many times over the years, I can say that certain episodes (Symbiosis, for instance) do not hold one's attention very well. On the other hand, other episodes (Justice, if you can believe it) really benefit from the HD upgrade, making them more appealing as a whole.

If you are somehow a new fan to the series, I still think you should buy this, with the proviso that things get markedly better even with Season Two, and certainly are totally cooking by Season Three. Season One is still a vital piece of TNG, introducing scads of characters and backstories. And there are still some superb episodes to be found (Encounter at Farpoint, Where No One Has Gone Before, Conspiracy, among others), and plenty of average shows, too.

Video

But these reviews aren't for new fans, are they? The question is - is it worth spending $60 or more to buy something you already own? Oh, yes. Yes, yes, yes. Yes!

To start with, overall detail has seen a huge boost, on a comparable or better level with the TOS Blu-Ray set. During facial close-ups, small hairs, pores, beads of sweat, and makeup details are easily visible. Costumes take on a new level of 80s cheesiness, with every crenelation, pleat, sequin, jewel, and bead being crisply defined. Buttons and displays leap off the screen. There is a stable sheen of film grain in most shots, which should make you happy, because it means that we're getting most or all of the detail present on the original negative. Color is another area that is light years ahead of the DVD. The DVD had a mushy, muted color scheme. Here, uniforms are bright, lipstick is ruby red, and spacescapes take on a whole new life.

Format:Blu-ray
The policy of Amazon to "fold" reviews together for different variants of a product really sucks. How can there be over 200 customer reviews for a product that isn't released yet?

Because most of them are for the DVD release. But this is the BluRay Release and it's a whole different product! Based on what I've seen on the demo disk ("The Next Level") I assume this Season 1 set will be absolutely amazing, but... I can only guess it, because it has not been released yet!

Dear Amazon, please allow separate reviews for this product, because TNG on BluRay is a *completely different experience*! Even the less good episodes are getting better thanks to the spectacular space scenes, plus you'll feel like being part of the action because it's HD (and in correct colors, unlike the DVD release!).

5.0 out of 5 stars All About The Fitst Set January 17, 2002
Format:DVD
Each season of TNG will be presented in a highly collectable box set, with seven discs and a pull-out booklet of episode information and a panoramic montage of the crew (Season 2 will have only six discs due to the abbreviated season of 22 episodes versus 26). The seven box sets will create an attractive library of the entire series.
"Star Trek is one of our most popular and enduring video franchises," said Eric Doctorow, president, Paramount Home Entertainment Worldwide. "We are very excited to be releasing Star Trek: The Next Generation on DVD because we are now offering consumers the ultimate home viewing experience for this immensely popular show."
The contents of the Season One box set are as follows:
Disc 1: Encounter at Farpoint Parts 1 & 2 (episodes 101, 102), The Naked Now (103), Code of Honor (104)
Disc 2: The Last Outpost (107), Where No One Has Gone Before (106), Lonely Among Us (108), Justice (109)
Disc 3: The Battle (110), Hide and Q (111), Haven (105), The Big Goodbye (113)
Disc 4: DataLore (114), Angel One (115), 11001001 (116), Too Short a Season (112)
Disc 5: When the Bough Breaks (118), Home Soil (117), Coming of Age (119), Heart of Glory (120)
Disc 6: The Arsenal of Freedom (121), Symbiosis (123), Skin of Evil (122), We'll Always Have Paris (124)
Disc 7: Conspiracy (125), The Neutral Zone (126), Special Features
Disc 7 includes the following special features:
- The Beginning: focusing on the challenges of creating a new series and keeping to Gene Roddenberry's vision. Includes interviews with Roddenberry, Patrick Stewart, Robert Justman (former producer of the Original Series), Rick Berman (Co-Executive Producer at the time), Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Denise Crosby and other cast members.

Format:DVD
"Star Trek: The Next Generation" became a great television series, but it certainly was not that at the start. The first season was a concerted effort to use the original series as a launch pad and it was not until their first encounter with the Borg that we can really say the series kicked into high gear. Consequently, the chief joy of watching the first season again is to see how the bits and pieces start to fall into place. Since I have already reviewed all of the STNG episodes individually, I want to comment on the first season overall in regards to this DVD collection.

In retrospect it is clear the creators of STNG did an excellent job in shuffling around the key traits of the crew on the original series and providing some new twists centered around the notion that as soon as you looked at Jean-Luc Picard it was clear he was no James T. Kirk ("TV Guide" originally disparaged the series as "baldly going where one show has gone before"--later they declared Patrick Stewart the best actor on television for that decade). Picard gets to be the father-figure, Riker gets to be the stud, the ship's doctor is now a woman, the Vulcan on the bridge is replaced with a Klingon, and Spock's emotional detachment is transferred to an android, but with the twist that Data wants to have emotions. So there is a sense of familiarity without creating outright repetition.

The creators always felt the biggest mistake in the pilot was Troi's telepathic message to Riker and the use of the word Imzadi. While Peter David's STNG novel alone of that title justifies its inclusion in the Star Trek universe, this "error" actually speaks to a larger strength of the series, namely the backstories of the characters.

Why does Amazon refuse to separate the DVD and Blu-ray reviews!??
Amazon's reviews are auto-posted..no human being is handling this mess, period. What gets posted remains till the server melts down and is a pool of lead. No one is paid to manage this system at all, hence the lack of distinction between various releases..DVD, Direct.' Cut, SE, Anniv. Ed.,... Read More

Won't play on my PS3(Star Trek: TNG Blu Ray)?
If you have access to the Internet outside the Home. you can go to playstation.com, and download the update onto a flash drive and update the playstation 3 that way, I had to do it this way when I had no internet at my house.

16:9 impossible
This has *Picard Facepalm* written all over it.

With TNG the show was shot and edited in 4:3, so it's not possible to crop it to 16:9 without loosing any of the picture. Yes it was slightly cropped on all four sides to allow for the 'safe zone', but that area is not meant to be seen, because... Read More

$91?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Agreed. For that price, they'd better be sending me Picard, Data and Worf to watch the show with me at my house.
