Star Trek: Enterprise Season 3 Blu-ray review January 11, 2014by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,ENT,Review , comments closed
We have come to Season 3 in the Blu-ray release schedule, this is the season many feel Enterprise became a show worth watching. Season 3 contains the season long arc of the Xindi threat. It also contains some great one-shot stories outside of the main Xindi narrative such as “Twilight” and “Similitude”, and a couple of pretty lame ones too, such as “Extinction” which is called “one of the singularly most embarrassing episodes of Star Trek I’ve been involved with” by Brannon Braga in the documentary on the set. Read on for the full review of this generally excellent season.

In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth.

Read on for our review of the Blu-ray release.
Star Trek: Enterprise – Season 2 Blu-ray review August 15, 2013by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,ENT,Review , comments closed
Conventional Trekker wisdom says that Enterprise didn’t get good until Season 3, but as I looked over Season 2′s episodes I was a little bit surprised to see how many episodes I looked forward to revisiting. There are some very good episodes nestled throughout Season 2, though the less said about “Precious Cargo”, the better. As Scott Bakula says in the cast reunion feature on the set, about half-way through season 2 things changed for the better. I’m inclined to agree. Read on for the full review of Enterprise Season 2 on Blu-ray!
