  3. It seems to be either loved or hated. I know a lot of fans who love the show but I also know a lot of fans who think it's terrible. I haven't bothered to watch it (even if I wanted to I couldn't, it's not available internationally) so I can't say anything about it, but I did see the trailers and they gave me anxiety because of how fast-paced everything was and how quickly everyone talked, so I highly doubt the show is for me anyway.

  13. Anytime! If it's any comfort - I myself bought my BluRay player (AND a flat screen TV) just for the TNG Blu Rays. Until this day TNG and X Files are the only two shows I have on Blu Ray and use the player for. I prefer buying DVDs as well, they're usually cheaper and I'm not obsessed with high quality television at all, and current shows are all shot in HD already anyway so there's really no reason to buy Blu Rays anymore, the DVDs look just fine. But TNG was simply worth it, and so much. The show looks almost completely different in HD. The difference between SD and HD is staggering. But I do still also have my DVDs, I treasure them as much as my Blu Rays because I bought them with my graduation money (they were REALLY expensive when the first edition came out). But if someone forced me to choose I'd pick Blu Rays because in TNG's case, it was just MEANT to be in HD. They just didn't have the means back then. Now they do and it looks the way it was always meant to look.

  15. Welcome aboard! To answer your question - get the TNG Blu Rays. That's the safest bet of them all quality-wise, AND you'll get the show in HD, which is a HUGE difference because it's almost completely remastered. But, if SD is your thing, I'd say the issues they had at first with the DVDs have been resolved by now. (The first TNG DVDs had the issue of cases that broke the DVDs when you put them back in because the plastic was almost as hard as diamonds, lol.) But aside from that I haven't heard of any major TNG DVD issues in quite some time. I'd also say that the older sets are probably pretty difficult to get nowadays since they were replaced by newer ones gradually.

  21. Sir Patrick was on Deadline Contenders just now and here's a recap of what he had to say: ‘Star Trek: Picard’s Patrick Stewart On Deciding To Finally Engage & Bring Back The Captain
  22. He only agreed to it because the original pitch for the show was so completely different from TNG. He'd turned every single other offer down for years because they were simple continuations of TNG. His biggest and most important criteria for his career nowadays is "have I done something like this before". If the answer to that is "no", chances are he's gonna be interested in the project.
  23. I have personal reasons for not watching the show. I have to support it as a Sir Patrick fan because it's what he wants to do and I want for him to be happy, but on a personal level I can't bring myself to watch it (has nothing to do with the perceived quality of the show). So, I support it as a Sir Patrick fan, but that's about it. Not easy, to say the least.
  24. I have. Just don't really have anything to add to it since I don't watch the show.
