Is what it is, extras are a little bit blended up and would be better on a person disk, would also be pleasant of the correct spelling of disk could have been carried over,waiting around to get to the menu is hard sufficient, ten unskippable minutes later and youre there. Seem need to under no circumstances have been remixed, it should have been remaining by yourself as stereo, or at least have restored stereo model somewhat than vhs audio.

Ive in all probability been spoilt by season three and four which i acquired at xmas, inside of the to start with few of minutes of ‘the child’, it is evident that this is a rush occupation. I was a little bit disappointed but just after a while you do neglect about the photo high-quality. It goes from great to bad fairly often, far more so the bridge scenes. I would still suggest it as it is a superior year, and seems definitely outstanding. Also it didnt appear with the cardboard slipcase but amazon are replacing it for me. But just after viewing other seasons, you will discover the weak high quality.

Well, you have to be a trakky to observe this stuff. I bought it for my mum who is also a large trekky and in her 80’s.

I had no issues with it but disc a person photograph turns terrible a little bit on two of the episodes but be sides that all the other discs are great.

These had been purchased as a current and i have had no complaints as to the affliction or the precise sequence, i was pleased with amazon, my relative was delighted with me so five stars.

Star Trek The Next Generation: Volume 2 : I had all the next gen series on dvd and could not wait for the blu-ray versions. They have not failed to disappoint, they are great quality and have loads of new extras.

Escalating up, would arrive household formo faculty and check out through dinner,.

Acquiring the total tng series on dvd i experienced to think 2 times in advance of double dipping, sequence two is my very first tng blu ray buy & it is well worth the enhance. I would say that 3 stars is about right for the story traces & image excellent on collection two i have the sampler tng blu ray & the image high-quality on that is top-quality. From what i have browse sequence two does drop marginally small on pq when compared to the rest of the sequence but even so its a large stage up from the dvds.

Wonderful contrast in tale lines from exceptional to utter rubbish refering to quite last episode in season 2 fantastic episodes with matter of honor, the borg , sins of the fatherone definitely dreadful line from sins of the father from picard’ ensign, established training course for the initially town of the imperial klingon empire’what a truly stupid thing to say blame the script by the script writersthe ferengi made a return, they have been meant to be a new adversary but accordingto the shows creators werent really credible that’s why the borg menacegreat image sound high-quality and much more extras than period 1well well worth the update.

This is solely about this item. Star trek: the next technology – season 2 [blu-ray it is not about series. I love that more and more special features are introduced in every season. It just leaves me with sadness that first season could have the same treatment. And new package, this cardboard sleeve?. But, more, why the first season doesn’t have it?it now looks like it is not from this set.]

Hugely advisable, only will get four stars out of 5 because of to the significant bar set by year 1. I know things definitely kick off in period 3 but there are some terrific episodes, that are just so enjoyable to look at for the story and now the hello-def encounter, these types of as q-who, peak overall performance, measure of a person. Certain the boxset is really worth the order dependent on the extended variation of measure of a gentleman and the forged get collectively for the job interview.For the sum of operate that’s going into these hello-def transfers and extras i believe it is vital that we snap up the boxsets so they keep it up.

22 episodes of typical star trek. Slimline version is a great compact formatgood dimension uncomplicated to cope with suits on the shelf neatlyand pretty god value.

Only 3 stars as i am let down by the established as a total. The bundle was purchased to full the 7 series’ established as i have presently have the sequence on vhs. The dvd discs all surface to be ok, but, so much, i have only previewed them and not still watched the full discs (only arrived three times ago). This is an old established, owning been introduced some time in the past. Even so, inspite of a cellophane masking, i found the box slightly (finger)marked and scuffed, with no corresponding cellophane problems. On opening the box i observed the booklet was missing. Not a significant catastrophe, so much, but incredibly irritating for one thing marketed as ‘new’, which it plainly is not. I will overlook the episode listing, although limited, i identified it handy in the other boxsets. As for the episodes them selves, all clearly show a willingness to create the figures and storylines nicely, although some are greater than many others. For science fiction aficionados, this is a ‘must have’ boxset of dvds, disgrace about the rest of the package.

Some of the episodes in this season are favourites and i like the new health practitioner. Disgrace she did not stayed for an additional sequence.

Let us encounter it, for someone like me who courses them selves as a hardcore trekkie, i was heading to appreciate viewing this series. Nevertheless, contrary to the relaxation of tng, there were episodes which just felt. And some episodes in which i just felt there was no cause genuinely to it at all. At times, this season is monotonous. You could forgive a several small problems with scripting – there are also some good moments in which you can see the figures becoming established on the path they will comply with up to period seven. What is unforgiveable nonetheless, is the character of pulaski. You will find no authentic surprise that gates mcfadden was rushed again in for period three. Pulaski is just unlikeable, yet it feels as though the writers are seeking to forces us to like her. She’s awful to data – even sarcastic (to the stage where she scans him in an effort to overlook his ask for that she pronounce his identify suitable), for no actual rationale other than she considers him inferior.

This is a excellent dvd and seriously great worth for dollars.

Even nevertheless this was a pre-owned item, they were in excellent problem. I have no problem with these dvds at all.

Like the collection – never ever get fatigued on viewing.

Terrific just what i was seeking never will need to wait around for repeats on tv set.

This is a review of the original-edition slimline set of time two, a period exactly where geordi gets to be chief engineer diana muldaur as dr pulaski is a refreshing change from dr crusher whoopi goldberg tends to make her initial appearances as guinan (as does 10-forward as her `bar’) riker has a beard that satisfies him effectively worf now wears yellow colm meaney has a regular part as transporter main and info demonstrates his desire in sherlock holmes. The crew are now settling down into their roles and appear a lot more relaxed as a final result. As rick berman says in the accompanying excess, `mission overview’, ‘the exhibit begun to click’. Sad to say there was a writers’ strike in hollywood all through this second season, and i recognize this is why there are only twenty-two episodes. In truth, the last episode is more or significantly less a rifling-through of riker’s reminiscences from preceding episodes. The most effective matter about tng, for me, is q. And listed here he returns to introduce the crew for the initially time to their upcoming adversary, the borg. On the other hand, i experienced to wince when at the peak of his initially battle with the borg, picard decides to. Episode twelve for me replicates the closing instances of bowman towards the finish of the film `2001: a area odyssey’, caught in an alien power’s principle of `casino royale’. A wide range of present-day issues are resolved, from problems relating to abortion and an immaculate conception in episode one particular by means of to a definition of what constitutes lifetime in episode three and the perils of genetic engineering in episode 7. But existing-working day scientific awareness has by now built the entire world of genetics depicted in episode eighteen out of date. In episode six, surprisingly the brain of a good scientist is sacrificed for the lifetime of details, an simply-replicable android.

Actors act so picket at moments. And so a great deal of my prepared area my completely ready space to go over this and that rather of acting. Give me kirk or janeway at any time. Patric stewart is great actor but his character is so tame.

St tng is however a worthy comply with up to the traditional star trek with james t kirk. It was a very challenging act to stick to, but i think they all did a very good job. Can`t hold out for it to be blu-rayed.

      1. I have bought these italian imports (makes me laff we are all european)coz they are around £10 cheaper, than a box with some english writing on,quality is just the same, all authorised by paramount. Don’t be ripped off for english things, if it is cheaper in any other country, buy it, the language is still in the original, english.

    1. The first season of “star trek: the next generation” was a complete mess. So the next season had to be much better, right?well, yes and no. “star trek: the next generation – season 2” was a definite improvement, especially since it lost much of the stifling smugness of the debut season. But it still wasn’t terribly good, especially since it disposed with the likable dr. Crusher in favor of the prickly sneering dr. It has some truly classic, beautifully-written episodes (“q who,” “elementary dear data”), but it also suffers from some staggeringly awful ones (“up the long ladder,” “the outrageous okona”). Crusher has vanished without a trace (don’t worry, she comes back), the enterprise welcomes a new doctor, dr. Pulaski (diana muldaur), who turns out to be obnoxious, condescending, demanding and picks on data (brent spiner) for fun.

    1. Only three stars as i am disappointed by the set as a whole. The package was purchased to complete the seven series’ set as i have already own the series on vhs. The dvd discs all appear to be ok, but, so far, i have only previewed them and not yet watched the full discs (only arrived three days ago). This is an old set, having been released some time ago. However, despite a cellophane covering, i found the box slightly (finger)marked and scuffed, with no corresponding cellophane damage. On opening the box i found the booklet was missing. Not a major disaster, so far, but very annoying for something advertised as ‘new’, which it clearly isn’t. I will miss the episode listing, whilst limited, i found it useful in the other boxsets. As for the episodes themselves, all show a willingness to develop the characters and storylines well, although some are better than others. For science fiction aficionados, this is a ‘must have’ boxset of dvds, shame about the rest of the package.

    Is what it is, extras are a bit mixed up and would be better on one disk, would also be nice of the correct spelling of disk could have been carried over,waiting to get to the menu is hard enough, ten unskippable minutes later and youre there. Sound should never have been remixed, it should have been left alone as stereo, or at least have restored stereo version rather than vhs audio.

      1. Great season of star trek tng. Unfortunately the card slip for the case was missing. Now i have the whole set, but season two looks out of place and the entrie set looks rubbish because of a missing peice of card. I’ve removed the card from all of the sets and they look better. It still seems unfair though and i dont want to throw away the slips i do have. I’ve emailed the manufacturer of these sets, but received no reply. Obviously my complaint is too daft for them. If that’s the case, why have the cardboard slips at all?.

    This second season of ‘star trek: the next generation’ is a great improvement over the first and while it still has a number of issues, the season is still greatly entertaining. Season two sees a number of changes to the show with jordi becoming chief engineer, doctor crusher being replaced by doctor katherine pulaski, milles o’brian becoming transporter chief, the introduction of 10-forward and guinan (played brilliantly by whoopi goldberg) and riker grows a beard. While some of these changes don’t quite work (i have always found dr pulaski to be a very unlikable character) most are well done and suit the series very well. Unfortunately one of the main weaknesses of this second season is that the first few episodes of the series are probably the worst with the very first episode, ‘the child’ where troi is impregnated by an energy being, probably the worst episode of the season. The series doesn’t pick up until the very entertaining episode eight, ‘a matter of honor’, where riker briefly serves on a klingon cruiser as part of an exchange program. From here the quality of the episodes improves as the series continues with highlights being episode sixteen ‘q who?’. (which introduces the borg for the first time), episode twenty ‘the emissary’ (where a woman from worf’s past comes to the enterprise on an important mission) and episode twenty-one ‘peak performance’ (where the crew of the enterprise partake in a war game). The funniest episode of the season is easily episode nineteen, ‘manhunt’, where troi’s mother comes to the enterprise as an ambassador and has her eyes set on captain picard. The special effects on the remastered editions are very good and the acting is reasonable with all the main and recurring characters seeming far more comfortable with their roles. While still not the best season of ‘the next generation’, this second season is still very entertaining and is well worth around four and a half stars.
