Interesting. Thanks for the response.

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.
It's going to be interesting to see what season 4 lools like on Blu-Ray. Brannon Braga mentioned in one of the bonusmaterials that he thought the look of the show suffered when they changed to HD cameras. The camera they good back then was apparently one of the first digital cameras available for a TV-Show and not very well developed yet.
I remember some season 4 shots looked very wired even on TV. I haven't seen season 4 in a while but I remember there was an episode where Archer was tracking through some kind of desert and some of those shots looked strange.
Again I haven't seen this for a long time, but it's going to be interesting.

According to a poster on blu-ray.com, Season One is on sale in Target stores for $49.99 this week.

I think it's time I pick this up!

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

To answer my own question here's the first review. Bill Hunt over at The Digital Bits has seen season 2. In a nutshell, season 2 looks and sounds hardly any better than season 1 but the extra's are abundant and lengthy. The cast reunion is 95 minutes long!

Pretty much exactly what I expected. I'm hoping for an improved HD presentation with season 3 - and particuarly season 4.

I think things look better. The live action is roughly the same, but what I've watched so far of the episodes, the CGI doesn't look as low resolution in S2 even though it technically was also mostly rendered at 480p.

And yes the cast reunion is great.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

I picked up Season 1, new on eBay, for $42 shipped and I'm waiting on my UK version of Season 2 that I got for $27 to ship. So far, it's looking like getting the series won't cost too much out of pocket, after selling my DVDs (already sold 2 and 3, waiting for a buyer for 1).

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

Another review has been posted at Blu-Ray.com. The reviewer calls season 2 the mst underrated season of Trek. Personally, I think it's overrated and I say that with the knowledge that most fans dislike it.

Wasn't Enterprise aired in high definition format? I don't own Blu-Ray, but how would it improve on something if it's already hi-def?

It's been aired in HD, but it's only been released in SD on DVD (and VHS). This release allows us to own it in HD (albeit with up-converted sfx) for the first time. It's a more marginal improvement than the other Trek series' but it's an improvement nonetheless.

So even if you'd recorded it during first broadcast, the Blu-Ray versions would show more detail?

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

Yes, the first airings were also in SD IIRC. Later on HD.NET started airing it in HD, but typically physical media will be of higher quality than the broadcast version, especially after it's been recorded (even more so since I'm assuming it was recording in a non-HD format since bluray recorders are relatively new)

It's certainly an improvement, Melakon, but as already stated, far less so than TOS and TNG. I haven't received my season 2 box yet, but season 1 definitely lacks much in the way of HD pizzaz. Let's put it this way, I don't use my ENT BD's as system demo material!

TNG, on the other hand, is a HUGE, WHOPPING jump in picture and sound quality. It's like the blurry, artifact ridden, washed out gauze has at last been lifted from the show!

Then the reviewer must not have watched it.

I made it halfway through Vanishing Point and haven't went back.
