Worth it

To see TNG episodes on the big screen alone is worth it but what makes it really great is showing the featurette with it and the bloopers was the icing on the cake. Good times.

Loved it, but would re-arrange the presentation

Of course I loved it - who doesn't love ST:TNG? And this particular episode is my favorite. The only thing I would change is that I would run the "making-of" feature after the episode itself. If someone had never seen the episode it would have been ruined by numerous spoilers in this feature that they for some reason ran before the episode. Why? Who knows. It was just a stupid thing to do. Regardless, I loved it. I wish it had been advertised better. I only found out about it by accident. I missed the last Star Trek event because I didn't know about it.

Best eps, bloopers fun, documentary too much...

I took my son to see 'The Best of Both Worlds' event and we had a good time, overall. Best of Both Worlds eps are the best of STTNG. I wish they had not "spoiled" the feature by showing a 30 min 'making of' documentary first. Too long, too much, took away from the experience. I wish they had shown Feature, Bloopers, then Documentary. Granted, I probably wouldn't have watched whole documentary in that case, but it's my money. The crowd was good. You kind of know you're getting Trekkers at an event like this and they are always good fun. :) All were pretty polite through the documentary tho there was restlessness around us as it dragged on. There was a tech glitch in the middle of the feature that dropped one scene, but it resumed very quickly (only 1 person had time to yell about the cost of the ticket). All in all, glad I went and "assimilated" my son.

Great episode. Poor presentation.

The Best of Both Worlds is one of the finest episodes of the Next Generation series. Unfortunately Fathom Events did not do it justice. The video quality was acceptable (not HD quality) and the audio left much to be desired. All the audio was in the front of the theatre with little stereophonic effect, no surround and little bass. Next Gen was one of the first TV Series not only broadcast in stereo but also had Dolby Surround. It sounded better on my home sound system when it first aired than it did last night at the theatre. The advertisement for the Blu-Ray release of Next Gen Season 4 had better video and audio quality than the main feature. I'm not sure it was worth $15/ticket to see it on the big screen without the benefit of the quality of the theatre's projector and sound system.

Great Idea Not So Great Execution

Great to show daughter, but extras at start gave away too much. Should've done at end instead. We enjoyed it though! Great to see Next Gen. Forgot how much I miss it.
