Not the best season of Enterprise
on 7 January 2015
If you are new to this series then I am sure you will find many reviews on line. Lets look at the actual discs.
Firstly, the first episode is of slightly inferior picture quality as, as explained on the discs, it was not known if it would be screen in 16:9 until late in the day and so some shots were framed for 4:3 and were re framed in post by the director. As such the picture sometimes becomes soft although its not too bad throughout. The rest of the episodes are what one would expect from a 15 year old series.
The FX were created at a lower resolution than full HD some say at 720 and some say not, but there is a noticeable drop in detail and the appearance of "jaggies" in those scenes. Like many of the early CBS FX shots they have a less than realistic appearance and look animated in places.
The extras are very good and the last disc contains a very frank conversation with the crew and some of the cast. Its clear Enterprise was a troubled show and was made too soon after its stable mates and so to get to the point that they did and realise a show of very high production values shows that they went the extra mile and is borne out in these "making ofs"
