Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

When I originally saw Regeneration, I thought it was was very good, but not great. I've watched it on Netflix, and the quality of the picture seemed better than I remembered on tv. A lot of detail stood out that I hadn't seen before and there's genuine atmosphere and sense of danger. So maybe it was the "glossy" new look, but I have a higher opinion of it than I originally did.

Looking at the bluray reviews for season 1 and 2, it looks like the general feeling I've seen lately that Enterprise is a lost "gem" seems to be spreading. The blurays are a big part of it.

Im a little behind, I think I'll buy season 1 tomorrow.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

The commentary track for Regeneration with John Billingsley and his wife Bonita Friedericy is rather hilarious.

Enterprise has definitely grown on me and I will continue to purchase the blu rays. Season 2 strikes me as the weakest season of the show, a few entertaining outings, but far too many uninspired, tired rehashes of overdone Trek tropes. Very interesting to watch Brannon Braga in interviews and especially interacting with the cast after many years. Hard to tell just how much of his humbleness is genuine but interesting insights into what was and what might have been without so much studio pressure.

That's good to hear, I look forward to it. I love Billingsley's style. I still laugh at him in Trekkies 2 wondering if someone somewhere is taking a "Billingsley Break".

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

Watched the first three episodes - up to "Minefield". IMHO, there's a small but noticeable increase in HD picture quality over the season 1 release. Not anything to jump up and down about, but certainly a step in the right direction.

Perhaps season 4 will have some genuine "HD pop".

At least the first two seasons of ENT were shot in a very soft/flat manner. VOY will look the same way if it gets remastered, they shot it in the same style.

We’ll have to see if there’s a change in S3 and S4, I seem to remember the style changing in S3, certainly in S4.

My thoughts exactly.

I think Season Three was when the show looked its best. The switch to digital made Season Four look kind of cheap, IMO.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

For some reason mine just shipped today (even though I ordered it a month or so ago) so I have not seen season 2 yet. Honestly I am most looking forward to season 3 anyway which are my favorite; although I really like most of seasons 1,2 & 3. Not a big fan of season 4 but will still buy it.

Season two seems a little brighter than season one. They added more colors in season three and especially four so those should look better than the first two.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

Just out of curiosity, do the main titles feature the original title of the series in the first couple of seasons, or were they altered to say "Star Trek Enterprise?"

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

Well, just finished episode four, "Dead Stop", and I have to say, I'm enjoying the heck out of my episode by episode re-watch! I'm just not getting the the season 2 is terrible thing at all - never did to be honest. IMHO, the first four have been highly enjoyable right out of the gate. My appreciation for the show is rising a fair amount.

Next up, "A Night In Sickbay". To be honest, this is not a episode I revisit frequently - in fact, the Blu-ray viewing will only be my second full run through. I remember not being particularly enamoured with it first time out, so I'm preparing for the worst!

I don't have the season 2 BD set yet , but season 1 just uses "Enterprise".

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

I've been wanting to get one of those wide-screen monitors for the computer (not sure this monitor can display HD) simply for the wide-screen dvds I have. But I'd always have to get some kind of external Blu-Ray drive to hook up to the machine. My eyesight's getting worse every year, so it's probably not a practical idea for me anyway.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

When the series was renamed to Star Trek Enterprise and went into syndication reruns did they change the name in the episodes for the first two seasons? I don't think they did but I'm not sure.
