It arrived this morning, along with the Wrath of Khan. The difference is tremendous!! They've been showing TNG on Sky2 and CBS Action here in the UK, and the film quality of the early episodes is quite appalling. I didn't realise this until today.

The detail on the Ent-D has film-worthy clarity, and looks even better than any CGI job that could have or has been done. Really quite beautiful.

And that was just with Encounter at Farpoint. And I thought that it would make the make-up and prosthetics rather fake-looking, but it looks no worse than it did before, just sharper. (A credit to the make-up artists, I guess.) And Sins of the father is full of Klingon prosthetics!

(Just to add, the prosthetics were of course of a lesser standard than one would find today, but they hold up as well as can be expected.)

I have yet to watch the Inner Light. I'll do that later.
