So I've been watching TNG Season 6 Blurays since getting back from Mexico and I'm a bit disappointed in the 'Chain of Command' Bluray..

The actors that played Capt. Jellico and Admiril Nechev seemed to ramble on about themselves a bit much and I was really hoping they would get David Warner (AKA Ed Dillinger from TRON) who played the Cardassian torchering Picard but nope! :-\

Up to disc 4 currently so I'll followup on the complete series soon 8)

Crap, I forgot about season 6 coming out last week.  And it's out of stock pretty much everywhere, so the price has gone up...

According to the Best Buy website there's a store in King Of Prussia that still has some in stock for $79, might take a drive up there tonight and see if any are still there.

Ah so that's why my rental service doesn't have season 7, I didn't even consider that!

I thought it very odd there was so much hate for Star Trek into darkness. I liked it, a lot. In fact, I found it got better with every subsequent viewing.

I thought I heard a rumor they were starting them in 2015 after TNG season 7 comes out by the end of this year..
Again just a rumor.

Forgive my skepticism but as with the TNG series I can't imagine them looking that much greater after they've undergone the high definition conversion. Did the TNG blu-rays really look that great?

I'm sorry but I still find myself standing at the crossroads of indifference.

Everything is still in 4:3 but the picture is alot clearer and I just stretch the screen to fill in the 2 vertical bars left by the 4:3 picture.

Got the last season six blu-ray set on the shelf at best buy for $70, it's up to $117 on Amazon now.

Oh, and RVR, streatching out the show to avoid the black bars, shame on you!

I hate it when I have to watch something like that, drives me crazy, all I can see are the proportions all screwed up...

I just can't stand seeing those bars on each side of the picture.. It just GNAWS at me! :gouge:
Why they recorded the show in 4:3 anyway is beyond me  :-\
