So Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 1 just came out on Blu Ray yesterday. Now I love me some TNG, I have watched the series more than a few times through, and when I heard that they remastered the series and was re-releasing it on Blu Ray I thought “hey thats cool, Im NEVER going to buy that.” And why should I? I can watch any episode anytime on Netflix or through the Amazon Prime Unlimited video service…. and then I see the remastered footage.
Look how clean and crisp everything looks. I just want to slap myself when they show the cleaned up Enterprise. The windows are… windows, not just yellow blobs of light, and you can actually and clearly make out the bridge features and ten forward! Man, that is borderline indecent… yeah, maybe Ill buy this!
And then I remember the actual episodes from season 1. Yes there is “Encounter at Farpoint” which will always hold a special place in my heart, and “Arsenal of Freedom” one of the all time greats, but there is also “Conspiracy” and the miserable “Skin of Evil” both which feature some of the worst special effect of any show ever, and of course “Justice” the infamous episode where Wesley is nearly executed for stepping on a flower. Maybe Ill wait for Season 2 uhhh I mean Season 3.
Are you going to pick up The Next Generation Season 1 Blu Ray?
