I see complaints about the 4:3 aspect, but the show was filmed on 4:3 and to make it 16:9 would require trimming.
If you love the show you will love this.
Episodes on the Blu-ray:
(Episode 1, 2) - Encounter at Farpoint 1 and 2
(Episode 65) - Sins of the Father
(Episode 125) - The Inner Light
Un bond de géant vers la perfection vidéo
Le gain en qualité (vidéo) est tel qu'après avoir visionné un seul épisode je ne peux concevoir acheter la version DVD. J'attendrai donc un jour, lointain je crains, où le prix de l'intégrale de la série descendra à une altitude accessible à mon portefeuille.
Épisodes sur le Blu-ray:
(Épisode 1, 2) - Rendez-vous à Farpoint - 1 et 2
(Épisode 65) - Les péchés du père
(Épisode 125) - Lumière intérieure
Anyway the remastering I have seen on this disc is impressive. I have the original DVD releases and I have compared the two. The difference is substantial! Images are clear, colors are better and overall it just looks way better. Even the special effects have been updated and THEY LOOK WAY BETTER!!
Some people have the following concerns:
1) Why is the show being released in a 4:3 format and not 16:9.
Quite simply the show was not filmed for 16:9, from what I understand they did film in with 35mm film but all the scenes, the actor placement, EVERYTHING was setup with 4:3 in mind. According to Mike Okuda sometimes the outer parts of the film have film equipment, crew and other actors standing in them so creating a true 16:9 image is not possible without seriously changing the image or using a computer to remove actors, equipment on the 16:9 image. Anyone who watched this show growing up will understand that TV was just not filmed in 16:9 back in those days, NO ONE had a widescreen TV, they just didn't exist yet! So obviously TV studios did not bother with it. So get over it. This is how TNG was meant to be seen.
2) Why are they calling this HD when it is only 4:3.
Aspect ratio (i.e. 4:3, 16:9) does NOT indicate HD. The amount of resolution does. In essence the image is 1080p but the other edges of the screen are just black. Consider some of the big movies these days. The blu ray releases STILL have black bars on the top or bottom. Do you know why?Read more ›
The hd is remarkable. The old fx look great. Looking forward for seasons 3 and up !
My biggest complaint is that this is still 4:3 aspect ratio. Perhaps that is a limitation due to how it was originally filmed. I do not pretend to understand the process of remastering this to Bluray, but 16:9 would have been a nice touch.
For a teaser it was well done. 3 Episodes total (Encounter at Farpoint part 1 and 2 (first episode), Sins of the Father (Worf) and the one where Picard plays a flute or something). Based on this sample disc, I could see myself taking the plunge and purchasing the complete set when it is released to Bluray.
