    The only thing I'm seeing missing here are episode trailers. That's a bummer, considering all of TOS and TNG (so far) have had them on the BD's.

    I love Enterprise, and watch it frequently on Netflix.... not sure why it gets so much hate from Trek fans. I might consider investing in this if the price is right.

    I loved Season One very much. I thought the show got mishandled and misguided a bit as it ran, but that first season for me was stellar.

    Interesting. I'm not sure why it's not obvious.
    But to each his own.

    To answer the question, at least for me: Enterprise S1 and S2 were, largely, a continuation of the way things were done on Voyager. One episode doesn't really impact the next in any way, they're all taking place quasi-independent of each other. (Yes, there are exceptions.)
    It was also the writing: there were no surprises for me. Take "Unexpected." That is a sitcom plot grafted onto a Star Trek framework. It may have been new and controversial in the 60s with TOS, but not in 2001. What would have made the episode more relevant to the time would have been if the alien was a male and the story continued from there...or something along those lines. Enterprise was usually was too safe. And there are times it could be deadly dull (just like Voyager).
    Two other shows debuted the same year Enterprise did and ran for many, many more years: 24 and Smallville. What made them succeed when Enterprise didn't? 24 dared to do things differently, to shake up the world. Smallville, for all its faults, had a continuing storyline in a number of its seasons and was true to its comic book roots.
    Enterprise finally got to that point in S3 and I found that to be a success, mostly. S4 was also lovely, but it was more of a tribute to the franchise as a whole than anything wholly Enterprise.

    And that price is destined to come down at least $10, if not more, before release date. They all have.

    Yes, it likely will, but it will need to get down a lot more than that before I'll bite. TNG is one thing, with all the restoration costs I'll cut the pricing some slack.

    Very true. I don't think Amazon or BB is going to make the same distinction, though. It will come down, and far, for anyone who is willing to wait.

    'Enterprise' does get a bad rap. I think one issue was that viewers had a steady dose of new Star Trek in their lives for - what- 15 years prior to its debut? There was probably some burnout by that point. Plus, many of the most outspoken Trek fans are far more demanding and nit-picky than your average television viewer. But the series assembled a fairly solid cast and every season had its share of memorable episodes. And, as has been well documented, it's final season was consistently excellent (except for the atrocious final episode), and it seemed as if cast and crew had hit their stride just before the axe fell. If it had earned seven seasons like the previous Trek series, I believe it's reputation would be much, much better now.

    I dunno what it was that I didn't like about it. I gave it a shot, but I thought the production values looked cheap, Scott Bakula was not very charismatic IMO, and I didn't like the music. The sum of it's parts just didn't click for me. I thought that Janeway and Chakotay were more compelling characters than Archer and T'Pol. JMO.

    I'll admit that I watched it regularly but didn't like it very much (old habits die hard.) Besides their deliberate attempt to distance it from previous Star Trek incarnations, which I didn't care for, I found that a week after viewing each episode I could barely remember anything about it.

    I was disappointed in the show when it first aired (except for the 4th season, which I thought was excellent from start to finish, minus the finale), but I rewatched the show on DVD a few years back and really enjoyed it; so glad I gave it another chance. I'm in for all four seasons on blu-ray.

    I think that's a symptom of two things: (1) going right from Voyager into Enterprise with largely the same creative staff and (2) 700-something hours of TV Trek when Enterprise wrapped. There wasn't a lot to make any particular episode memorable, especially in years 1 and 2. They'd use the same jungle set, the same cave set, the same guest actors...over and over and over again.
    Even when they tried to connect the episodes to something else in the Trek universe, they failed for me. The Ferengi episode Acquisition and the Borg episode Regeneration were prime examples of skirting ever-so-close to trampling on continuity. No one had any guts to make Enterprise completely different, which is a shame. The last 14 seasons of Trek (VOY and ENT) were just not-so-veiled variations on the TOS and TNG theme.

    I just never could get into any of the post-TNG shows. I watched TNG on a semi-regular basis and I love TOS and watch it daily on Netflix. Everything else just seemed like a takeoff of TNG to me.

    I can understand that. To be fair, they ARE all spinoffs of TNG in some way (except for ENT).
