Well if there's any episode that needs some effects work, it's be Farpoint!

Can they fix Troi's acting too? Pain...PAIN!!

Yes they're fixing that by re-dubbing her saying "No....NOOOOOO!!!!". ;)

Yes, I heard that.  Also, Picard shoots first this time too and Data will blink more and use contractions.  :)

I suppose Farpoint is logical but it's nowhere near a favourite. Do you think they'll fix the 'chainmail fence in space' to look a little less '18th century'?

I know it's unnusual here but I don't have a podcast of my own.

I can't wait to see this. I know they will treat them with respect if the treatment of the TOS remasters is the measure. It will be interesting to see if they can get season 1 looking sharp and detailed as it suffers from poor quality compared to later seasons.

But it special effects heavy and they look super dated.

No TNG was shot on 35 mm film.. that's what made it different and so expensive.

Yep, it was shot on film like Kenny said.  Here's a shot of one of the film cameras:

Okay, makes sense, but what was the problem with the shooting that they had once said would cause problems when trying to turn to HD? I can't remember the specifics, but I do remember that there was supposed to be some sort of issue.

As has been discussed a bit here, it's the effects.  Basically the live action was shot on film.  Much of the effects work was only composited on video.  So, the end result (as I understand it) is the effects will have to be redone.

As I understand it, the 35mm film can be upconverted no problem but the effects are native in 480i which would upconvert very badly, hence they have to redo the effects shots.

There is no "upconverting" for the 35mm film portion.  Film quality, even 35mm is of a higher resolution than Blu-Ray.

Cool video. I wouldn't be able to buy all these on blu-ray when the start releasing them so i thought it would be cool if they put them back on tv buuuuut, I'm dropping cable down to basic because it cost to blasted much. So I will no longer have any HD tv. I'll still have my PS3 though for blu-ray disc.
