In some ways season 2 is an easy target and you often hear more lazy reviewers revelling in criticising it. Having to contend with a The Writers Guild strike, the introduction of the less likeable Doctor Kate Polaski and containing Shades of Gray which is undeniably the worst episode of The Next Generation bar none it is unfortunately encumbered. However whilst watching season 2 you start to encounter episodes that show the writers are starting to hit their stride and are getting much better at writing tight stories and developing the characters, which becomes a more consistent hallmark of the following seasons. Episodes like Where Silence Has Lease, The Measure of a Man, Q Who and others really are excellent (admittedly mixed in with a few duffers).

As mentioned in other reviews the picture quality is more variable in this season 2 release compared with season 1, it should still be stressed however that even when the picture quality is at its worst it is still miles better than the DVD releases. The first episode The Child as well as not being a particularly strong story also has the misfortunate of being one of the worst offenders, the picture can go from heavy grain, to perfect 1080p picture quality to overtly smooth within a few moments from cut to cut, on one of the extras it is mentioned that they experimented more with different types of film stock when filming season 2 and I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but sometimes especially in The Child the sudden shift in picture quality can be jarring. I should point out that this is more the exception than the rule, but you need to be aware that it exists.

When I read the earliest reviews of this set, I was disappointed beyond words. I'd been looking forward to it ever so much, but it was obviously catastrophically awful. After putting the final disc back in the box, though, I have to say that I enjoyed these BDs even more than Season 1's.

It's true that the picture quality is sometimes a notch down on the earlier collection's. But the only conspicuous difference is that grain appears a bit more often, and that when it does show up, it's a bit heavier. But there are only a few minutes in the entire season when it's prominent enough to be noticeable. I don't think anyone could deny that the discs are hugely better than the TNG DVDs.

On the plus side, the average standard of the stories is, of course, much, much better than in the first box. The Borg; Guinan; Moriarty; Riker seconded to the Klingons; I'm sure you remember how many gems this season sparkled with. And what seals the deal is the excellence of the extras. Two extended versions of The Measure of a Man, commentaries, deleted scenes, a non-VHS-quality gag reel and about two and a half hours of new HD interviews. The cast and other interviewees are far more open and relaxed than in the old DVD featurettes - also included here - and their anecdotes and revelations are as entertaining as the episodes themselves. Their long sofa chat is one of the most enjoyable special features that I've ever seen.

The pasting that this collection took from its fiercest critics was so severe that I almost decided not to try it at all. I'm very glad that I changed my mind. I'd imagine that most fans of the show would get an enormous amount of fun out of it.

ive probably been spoilt by season 3 and 4 which i bought at Christmas, within the first couple of minutes of "The Child", it is evident that this is a rush job. I was a bit disappointed but after a while you do forget about the picture quality. It goes from good to bad quite often, more so the bridge scenes. I would still recommend it as it is a good season, and sounds absolutely superb...Also it didnt come with the cardboard slipcase but Amazon are replacing it for me....recommended..but after watching other seasons, you will notice the poor quality

Okay, so it seems that Season 2 didn't get the full HD treatment that Season 1 did. The exterior shots and special effects look brilliant but some of the negatives haven't been cleaned up as well as they could have been. That said, it's not awful. It's still better than the DVD version and in most cases is HD. So if you're concerned from the other reviews - don't be. If you're a TNG fan, you should own it.

That said, Season 2 was not the best season. Beverly Crusher is replaced by Doctor Pulaski (for one season only thank goodness) and some of the episodes seem lazy. I still enjoyed watching it but when you get to Season 3 you see everything looks as good as it could do and Beverly is back!

If you love TNG - get it, if you're just a casual watcher, skip this and go straight to Season 3.

Fist of all: I'm not rating the show quality here. This rating and review pertains to the Blu-ray Disc release and its masterful accomplishment in image and sound quality, and overall presentation of said show.

Season one had already dazed me with its astounding re-mastering of ST:TNG. I never thought such amount of image detail could exist. It was like being blind all my life and suddenly starting to see. There's no better reason for BD to exist than to bring to life old recordings previously only available in "standard definition". This is the new "standard".

That said, they seem to have gone into further pains with the release of Season 2: there are more extras, more interviews and original content, such as deleted scenes, alternative cuts, and audio commentary (there's at least one episode per disc with alternative audio track with technical commentary, something that Season 1 was really missing). As with Season 1, all the original extra content previously released for the DVDs is here too.

I hope Season 3 comes with even more stuff.
