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.
.
I think the newly produced special features are a big part of it. Berman and especially Braga have used every opportunity in these documentaries to spin the tale as to why Enterprise was such a disappointment, not just critically but also creatively. Of course it had very little to do with them (although Braga does take some blame) but all to do with UPN and the studio. In light of these "revelations" reviewers and Trek fans seem to have become a lot more forgiving of the show's obvious shortcomings.

My opinion of the show hasn't changed. It's an okay show with some great episodes and some stupendously boring installments. Overal it's enjoyable but for various reasons it's still the worst of all Star Trek series.

What annoys me on these reviews is that they seem to be completely ignoring one of Season 2's best episodes, Cogenitor. But they love bringing up Carbon Creek, which was really just an average episode. Cogenitor was the kind of storyline they needed to do more of on Enterprise while Carbon Creek was business as usual.

For what it's worth I did not ignore Cogenitor in my review. It's a great try by the Trek writers to address both general concepts of gender and the concept that a person can be considered second-class status because of a social construct.

I like Carbon Creek far more than Cogenitor.

I got my set today and watched "Minefield" and thought the picture quality looked far better than my DVD set. I'm pleased.

I just bought the DVDs this year. My favorite shot in "Minefield" is that effects pullback with Archer and Malcolm on the hull. I assume it's entirely CGI including the people, and the dialogue just sells it.

On J Paul Boehmer's IMDB trivia page, it says that Carbon Creek is "universally cosidered among fans to be Enterprise's best episode". That had me scratching my head. I like the episode, but I can name far better episodes.

Re-watching through this made me realise, this season gets off to a great start with the first 4 episodes. Dead Stop is among my favourite Enterprise episodes.

My copy from Amazon UK finally came today. The first episode I am going to watch is "Carbon Creek".

I have always been baffled by this. From when it first aired this episode never got the recognition it deserved. To me Congenitor is Enterprise's best episode by far. There is nothing else like it unless you start looking at the top morality plays from some of the other shows.

Although TNG season 5 is released this November, I suspect ENT season 3 won't be hitting the shelves until first quarter 2014 at the earliest.

Our friends at Trek Core may well have more solid information however.

I'm hoping it comes out before Christmas. I may not have to pay for it then.

Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

I'm watching through the Season 2 blu ray now. I didn't see all the episodes when they originally aired. I was never a very big fan of Enterprise. Some of the episodes are pretty good, but a lot of them are boring. I never realized there was an episode that was basically a remake of TNG's "The Nest Phase" with Hoshi. The episode with Trip on the hot planet with the dehydrated alien was pretty good, but it sort of reminded me of a cross between Darmok and Enemy Mine.

The episode with the Romulan minefield was good and the following one with the weird repair station was good too. From what I've seen, those might be two of the shows best episodes overall.
