NBC (ended 1969)
BLAST YOU FOX NETWORK!!!!!!!
Instead of showing "Amok Time", they played some stupid 2-cent public access FISHING SHOW!!! $#!+!
Tomorrow night is a rerun of "The Doomsday Machine", which means I have to wait yet ANOTHER WEEK to see the new version of "Amok Time"!
If I could get my hands on the programming IDIOT who made that decision, I'd show him Klingon vengeance!
Pleasant surprise! Something told me to have my VCR ready to tape on Sunday night, and VOILA! Not "Doomsday Machine", but "Amok Time"!
Aside from cutting a little too much dialogue where Spock pleads with T'Pau, I really liked it!
Did anyone else notice that they put a background on the still photo of T'Pring as a child? The old version showed only a grey wall, as if it were a mugshot.
It was a standard CG Enterprise at warp shot at the beginning, btw.
Next up: "The Paradise Syndrome". Not one of my personal favorites, but I'm looking forward to seeing the improved asteroid deflection in this episode!
Well, the new asteroid on "The Paradise Syndrome" is quite different from the Yonada asteroid! CG modelers based this asteroid on images taken from NASA.
Above: The Enterprise approaches the asteroid. Below: The asteroid under fire
Much improved! Next week is a rerun of "Space Seed". After that comes "Wolf in the Fold". Should be interesting to see if anything is done to improve, oh say, that kaleidoscope that passed for the evil entity. After that, a rerun of "I, Mudd", which I'm looking forward to, as it was blacked out by the farking world series. After "I, Mudd" is "The Naked Time", and after that is one of my TOP favorites - "The Tholian Web"!
Aside from vastly improved CG for the Tholian ships (You can see THROUGH the old ones, for Gre'thor's sake!), I expect to see this -
The hard part is going to be waiting so long until this episode!
Once again, we are in disagreement.
If you want to stick to old-school Tholians, stick with the old-school episodes.
Me, I loved seeing the real Tholian. (Six legs and crystalline, and you call that NOT alien?), and I'm still hoping to see one on the Remastered TOS.
This week's coming episode is "Wolf in the Fold". I'm not sure what changes to expect this time, because I've seen no pre-release images yet.
If you caught the remaster of "Catspaw", then you'll recall how they pulled back the camera and expanded the shot of Korob and Sylvia's castle to a complete structure, and not just a partial front. I'm wondering if this time, we might actually see more of Argelius than a few dark, foggy alleys. It's supposed to be a very beautiful planet, isn't it? Dark alleys aren't exactly conducive to bolstering that claim!
Perhaps also have something on the monitor screens other than a kaleidoscope when the entity inhabits the ship's computer.
Well, they didn't fix Argelius. In fact the only change this time around, aside from the atrocious hack-editing, were the exterior shots of the Enterprise. Next week is a repeat, "I, Mudd", which I have not seen, since it was blotted out by the kriffing World Series, the first time it aired, so for me, it's a new one! I've seen the still images, as well as the vfx reel on YouTube, but it'll still be good to actually SEE it!
After that comes another repeat, "The Naked Time", and then, one of my top favorites, "The Tholian Web"!
Those who have followed this thread have noticed something of a debate between me and Mac-Ale, regarding the remasters. We'll see what happens with "The Tholian Web", in a few weeks.
We are in agreement on the Tholian ships and web. Those looked outstanding on Enterprise!
The reason it seems different? Well, you couldn't exactly do the web in 3d on TOS, could you? Plus, this web had close to 10 Tholian ships, which allowed construction to proceed much more quickly! With only two ships, like on TOS, it doesn't surprise me that it ended up taking those Tholians hours.
The trailer for the new version of "The Tholian Web" is on www.startrek.com!
The fx for the Defiant look great! They also show its vanishing point, which is more than just fading out (the same effect TOS used with cloaking devices), as well as the Tholian ships. No image of the Tholians themselves that I saw, but for me, the trailer froze about halfway through.
Can anyone else check the rest of it, see if we get a look at Loskene?
