Awesome news. I've been waiting to see Best Buy's price. Folks, I hope it goes without saying to submit a price alert to Amazon.
I too went to the showing. I echo pretty much everything ITDEFX said. Season 3 looks incredible-glorious thanks to the geniuses at CBS-Digital... I can only hope they don't try to rush the further seasons by continuing to use the other team. At the moment, NOTHING beyond season 3 has been officially scheduled (though as Shrike notes, they did mention their hope
to stagger the development between the two teams to get the sets out quicker), so there is still time for CBS to come to their senses, and not rush things.
Love most of the deleted scenes.
Extra scene with Geordi was touching, the scene in Ten-Forward ITDEFX alludes to wonderful and hilarious.
One scene in particular, though...
I think the only scene that doesn't fit in and is a detriment to the episode is Riker coming in during Picard's fencing lesson to boast about how he was going to try his best, and not pull any punches. The original cut of the episode PERFECTLY encapsulates Riker's natural competitive nature, and his complete unwillingless to do something that could hurt his friend and comrade-- the scene where he's viewing Data's schematics, and a gleeful smile erupts on his face when he realizes he has the crucial element needed for his prosecution. Almost immediately, he feels guilty and the shit eating grin evaporates. The boasting scene with Picard that takes place before that is just out of place with what Riker's character is feeling-- any sort of pride about the proceeding to decide his friend's fate could and should only take place pretty much as they depicted. IMHO, of course.
Overall though, make sure you see the extended cut of Measure of a Man. Buy the set, rent the set, borrow the disk from your friend. Something. It's truly a wonderful watch.
