DVD TV Show Reviews
They are really rushing Enterprise out on DVD this year,
which is great for us fans. They have made great packages, too,
which are not only functional but look really cool. I also like the
little booklet that comes with it that has short episode synopses and an
overview of the series and the season. I don't know if I'd
say the very high prices are worth owning the set -- only you can judge
that for yourself. It depends on what kind of fan you are of the
show (all the Trek shows, for that matter).
The third season of the show was mostly about the war
with the aliens called Xindi. I think there were a lot of great episodes
in this season. I have read, though, that some fans complained that the
show was too much of a "soap opera" or that it spent too much time on
the Xindi storyline. Frankly, I thought this year was better than the
second. The ratings were never as good as they should have been,
so I think the network put a lot of pressure on the writers and
producers to "fix" things each season. That's why each season is a
bit different in focus. By the last season, they sort of got back
to what made Trek great, but so many fans had given up on it by that
time, it was too late. It's a good show, so that is a real shame.
A great deal of care obviously went into the packaging
to make these disks special for Star Trek fans. Also, the menus on
the disks are very cool-looking, like what you might see on the comm of
The Xindi Saga Begins - a short feature introducing the
Xindi saga, with clips from the show and chatter by the
Enterprise Moments - a selection of scenes about the
shows and characters, with comments from the show.
A profile of actor Connor Trinneer (Trip) - A
great extra for any Trip fan!
A Day in the Life of a Director: Roxann Dawson - The
actress from "Voyager" directs an episode of the show and does a
behind-the-scenes short about the experience.
Outtakes - Always fun to have bloopers! Every
single DVD should have them.
Photo Gallery - standard photos from the show
(personally I always find this boring)
Borg Invasion Trailer - This has nothing to do with
Enterprise. It's an ad for the newer Trek ride in Las Vegas called
"Borg Invasion"...it's too short, too. Kinda pointless!
I am very glad to be collecting these disks...why not
rent or buy them yourself and check them out? If you never watched the
show, you might be pleasantly surprised at how good it is.
