The Quality continues.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Trek: The Original Series - Season 2 [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
As a life long fan I have purchased Star Trek (in it's entirety) on VHS, on DVD and now BLU RAY; I have fond memories of watching Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Co in their adventures on BBC2 every teatime (was it Wednesday's?!) with my Dad during the early to mid eighties.
I would not describe myself as a 'Trekkie', but I just find the shows comforting and relaxing to watch.
These BLU RAY sets are superb, the picture quality is obviously amazing, at times it is genuinely difficult to believe that images were not filmed in the last couple of years!
The new special effects are great, and real care has been made to edit them into the show as effectively as possible; I still prefer the original effects believe it or not (!) but they are a fantastic addition and warrant yet another purchase of the series.
The sound is also stunning and the newly produced intro tune is a great addition.
There are good extras and the menu screens look great also.
One minor negative for me is the inability to play all the episodes on each disc in succession, one has to play each episode seperately; I personally love to put them on to 'play all' and fall asleep to them on a lazy afternoon, but nevermind!
Particular highlights of this series for me are 'Amok Time, 'The Changeling', 'Mirror, Mirror', 'Journey to Babel', 'The Doomsday Machine' (A personal favourie).......... I could go on (!), it was arguably the best season of the original series.
An essential purchase for any Star Trek fan with a BLU RAY player.
