Star Trek: TNG -
I purchased the Next Gen. Box set as a cost cutting alternative to purchasing each individual season separately. As has been mentioned by many others who have reviewed this set, the packaging does leave quite a bit to be desired. The boxed set looks nice, but getting it open, fighting with the flimsy green cases and finally putting it all back together when you’re done is just ridiculous. Immediately after I bought it I bought a case to store them all in. That way the box it came in stays really nice and it's much easier to flip through the case than to go through the process with the box.
The series itself is really great TV. The fact that it was made in the late 80's early 90's is apparent in the first season, but by the second and third seasons the special effects become more realistic, and the overall quality of sets, costumes ec cetera, get better. There is chemistry between the Actors that brings it all together. There is also a great blending of character development and action/adventure. It enables the viewer to have some emotion invested in the characters and what happens to them.
I already own the complete series of Voyager, Enterprise, and the Original, but The Next Generation is my personal favorite out of them all. You don't have to be a trekkie or sci-fi fanatic to enjoy watching Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Oh, and Patrick Stewart ROCKS!Read full review

Believe it or not, WORTH the money!
THIS REVIEW IS FOR STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE 9 COMPLETE SERIES, EBAY PUT THE WRONG TITLE ON. ENJOY: By the time you're reading this, you've seen DS9 and you like it, to even consider spending this kind of money (I got my package for around $300, which seems to be the going rate for buy-it-now). So, I won't rehash what this series is all about. Suffice to say I would never consider buying all the original series, Next Generation, Voyager or Enterprise series, but Deep Space 9 was well worth it. You really notice the continuity when you have the entire series to watch sequentially. This suppliments the character development that is already very well done, the characters are very three dimensional. Season 1 and to a degree, Season 2 are like Next Generation episodes, but around the third season, things turn darker, more real, and there is a total departure from any Trek previous, or, in hindsight, since. Excellent scripts. I can only think of one episode I would call "bad." The rest are very entertaining. Note to Star Trek fans: If you blew off this show like I did in the 90's because the first episodes were nothing new and you didn't like the idea of a stationary crew that waited for adventure to come to them, go back! Find it on television and start watching it! You'll be bidding on one of these before you know it. After a quick search on the internet, you'll find out that this show won all kinds of awards for scripts and has international acclaim. I can see why. If you simply can't afford the entire set, I recommend picking up the last season, 7. The final episodes of this show look like movies, with tremendous budgets on special effects. Phasers cutting through hulls, ships smashing into each other and large-scale destruction during fleet to fleet starship battles. Wow! I should also add, if you've only seen Worf in Next Generation, then you don't know Worf. I HATED the Klingon episodes of Next Gen, and in this series, they are some of the best ones! No more kinder, gentler Klingon, Worf is breaking necks left and right in this one. A true warrior. Quark provides some hysterically funny episodes as well, obviously a talented actor. Whenever I buy a DVD I try to picture myself actually taking it out one night and putting it in the tray. I find a lot of movies don't re-watch very well, and it saves me from buying the DVD. This series has a very high re-watch factor, you WILL go back to your favorite episodes, of which there will be many.
My overall impression, I stole it for $300.Read full review
