I like Vanishing Point :P

Also Shockwave Pt.2, Minefield, Dead Stop, The Catwalk, Future Tense, Regeneration, First Flight, Bounty and The Expanse. So I agree that season 2 is underrated...

Seems like even reviewers need to get a jab at Star Trek Into Darkness!

Yup, although I'm pretty certain the STID Blu-ray is going to bag 5 stars for both picture and sound quality, I have a feeling they're going to slam it in the actual movie review.

Amazon UK has shipped my order; it will probably take about a week to arrive here in the states.

So even if you'd recorded it during first broadcast, the Blu-Ray versions would show more detail?
If it was broadcast at 720p (or 1080i?), then you'll get a resolution increase on Blu-ray. You'll also not have so much compression that broadcast video has to go through. So, yeah, it will look nicer. Maybe not loads nicer but, short of remastering, that's about as good as Enterprise will ever look.

They're on iTunes in HD as well, aren't they? That's probably a closer comparison.

Right, the Blu-ray discs technically have the most detail possible due to offering full 1080p resolution on the live-action footage, in addition to using lower compression than the streaming/downloadable versions available (where are also only available at 720p resolution).

Enterprise was filmed on 35mm film, then scanned into 1080p for the digital editing workflow or for Season 4 it was shot at 1080p/24 on professional Sony HD digital video cameras. VFX was typically rendered at 720p for Season 3/4, a mix of 720p/480p, whatever rendered quickly enough in the time/budget allotted in S2, and 480p in S1. The VFX was then upscaled, if needed, in their editing workflow.

It was then prepared for 720p broadcast according to various places online. That the Netflix/Amazon/iTunes versions (and when shown on HDnet) are all 720p, lends credence to the information that it was indeed prepared for 720p during the first run broadcast of the episodes.

I'm a big fan of the Blu-ray sets since it is technically the best presentation we'll likely ever get of Enterprise but more-so because of the excellent bonus features.

The reality is that Enterprise was shot pretty flat and dull at times (especially S1 and S2), so the live action doesn't have any major extra pop at 1080p, and the VFX is only rendered at 720p, so I'd imagine a lot of people don't feel a huge reason to get the BD sets since the 720p versions on Netflix, etc. do an decent job already.

The reviewer calls season 2 the most underrated season of Trek.
Then the reviewer must not have watched it.

I made it halfway through Vanishing Point and haven't went back.
I think I've only seen the borg episode in season two. (That was season two, right?) I'd already stopped watching the show in season one, but some Trekkers were telling me, "Okay, you gotta watch this episode. If you don't like this one, then you definitely won't ever like ENT."

Watched it. Didn't like it.

There was a VHS release?

Yes, but only the first season. From 2003 and beyond Paramount Home Entertainment decided to release solely on DVD (with the exception of Nemesis, which used both formats)
