I'm interested to see your Enterprises sales numbers.
I doubt anyone has the actual number of units sold, but he did mention where each new release ranked on Amazon's sales chart.
This. Thanks BillJ.

Today's Amazon UK's Film and TV (DVD & BD) rankings are:

TNG S4 #116
ENT S2 #3,222

To be fair, today is the release day of TNG S4 and ENT S2 isn't out yet. So let's compare the other TNG releases with ENT S1 and we get this.

TNG S3 #3,173
ENT s1 #24,584

TNG S2 #6,025
TNG S1 #5,582

Again, no sales numbers but these rankings show that even the 5 year old release of TOS season 1 (# 20,191) is currently outselling ENT S1. All I'm saying is that it's very possible that some Paramount UK marketer looking at this chart might think it's a good idea to try something different pricewise.

I just hope ENT BD sales are sufficient for CBS to complete releasing all four seasons.

Enterprise was originally made in high-def, there are no additional costs for converting episodes involved, so it's unlikely it's unprofitable even if the sales aren't huge.
Therefore it's almost certain they'll release them all.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

I too hope they release the remaining seasons; season 4 of ENT is my favorite.

I hope that fans of the show get all four seasons released. Hell, I may even grab season four. But I figured the show would be a hard sell, even among the die-hards.

I shelled out about $350 dollars when the seasons were released on DVD and I've watched them so little I simply couldn't justify putting out another $250+ dollars to buy them again.

EDIT: They should've released Enterprise in the gap between TOS and TNG. It really made no sense to release the two series (TNG, ENT) concurrently.

I pre-ordered the UK version of S2 when it was cheap and sold my DVD set (seasons 1-3) to recoup the cost, so I'm hoping to be able to support the bluray release and buy all of them without costing more than $100-$150 more for the whole series.

Lots of shows have stopped after only releasing one season on DVD. Fortunately for the fans, however, the studio has a history of trying to squeeze every last dollar out of its Trek productions. Not to worry, the entire series will be released.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

Is it still the plan to release all 4 seasons this year, or do you guys think it will be spread out more now?

Season 4 will definitely not becoming this year, and with the gap between S1 and S2, I wouldn't expect Season 3 until January.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

I'm hoping for a bump in picture quality for season 3 - and particularly season 4. A little more "HD Pop" as many reviewers are fond of saying.

One of the things that seasons 3 and 4 have over the first two seasons is that they use a lot more color. Seasons one and two were more drab so they should look better just because of that.

The richer colour palette will certainly provide a pleasing and more appealing look on BD. But I'm hoping for addtional depth/dynamic HD appearance. We may well get something approximating that with season four.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

I'm not sure why I'm here as I'm not an ENT fan and have never seen more than five full episodes, but... quick question:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't the first two seasons of ENT filmed on, er, film, and the last two seasons filmed in digital HD? Meaning that the first two seasons have the potential for even greater resolution, whereas the last two seasons can never look any clearer than 1080.

Only the fourth season was filmed digitally. The first three seasons were all done on film. Season Four will probably look fine on Blu-ray, but if ENT ever gets a future release on a higher resolution (like, say, 4K), then I'm not so confident about its chances.
