But I understand why other people might not like the series so much. In this case, I'm giving it 5 stars because content delivery has been flawless, over a variety of devices. The ability to binge watch entire series - including this one, where I've missed a few episodes - as well as the new content show that video is a great part of being a Prime member. I still know a lot of people who have Prime and don't take advantage of things like this, and they're missing out.
Now a real beef: I have several CBS DVD sets and they all have digital errors on them. Columbo and Enterprise have entire shows where they digitize the images, the screen freezes or jumps entire segments. Very poor quality that mars otherwise entertaining programs.
Enterprise takes a lot of flak for supposedly ruining the Trek franchise. But that is a little unfair.
There are some things about Enterprise that don't fit with the general continuity of the rest of the franchise. The main one of those things is the general look and feel of the show. While it looks cool and realistic, it doesn't flow with the rest of the franchise. In the show's defense it does occur 100-200 years before everything else in the franchise. Things are bound to look a little different. But it's also presented in widescreen, where the rest of the franchise is 4:3. But that's really the biggest issue with the series.
The show is NOT just tacked onto the franchise with no reference to the known Trek universe. In fact there are numerous references to the rest of the Trek world. The Eugenics program with references to Khan is a multi episode story arc that features the ancestor of Noonian Soong, played by Brent Spiner. That story arc also includes an explanation about why Klingons from The Original Series look different than Klingons from the Next Generation era. (It's goofy, but it's fun) There are just many many references to the Trek universe you know and love, and explanations on how that universe developed into the one you know from 'the future'.
Season 2 gets into some early meetings with the Klingon Empire, which is cool. The Borg that were sent back in time in Star Trek First Contact are referenced in season 2 as well, with the crew trying to figure out what these cyborg humanoid creatures are. (Of course they have never seen a Borg and no one will make contact with the Borg Collective fro several hundred years). So the season is filled with neat references like that.
It's a well made show. If you watched the rest of Trek you owe it to yourself to bring it home with Enterprise.
A few weeks ago, I decided to try giving Enterprise another chance and now that I'm into season 2, I do enjoy it. What I like best is how the crew reacts when they encounter new aliens. In the previous Star Trek shows, they all acted like it was no big deal. In Enterprise, it's still something new, something they're not accustomed to, just yet.
I still don't feel like this series had the same "mojo" as the others. That might be why it never got the fan base and ended after 4 seasons.
I will hope that another Star Trek series will happen in the future, but one that offers the action and intensity that current tv viewers are interested in. A Sci-Fi series needs to be as almost as good as a movie.

La edición italiana, además de considerablemente más barata, es exactamente la misma que la española, es decir: subtítulos y doblaje en castellano.
SciFi-Fans und Star Trek-Fans werden aus meiner Sicht mit der Serie glücklich, vor allem da auch viele Charaktere und Szenen in späteren Folgen wieder aufgegriffen werden, die Folgen stehen also nicht alle nur für sich selbst.
Die Qualität der Blu-ray ist gut, allerdings nicht perfekt, großartige Verbesserungen gegenüber dem DVD-Release sind mir zumindest nicht aufgefallen. Man sollte hier also keine Effektverbesserungen oder ähnliches wie bei TNG erwarten.
Wo die Blu-ray-Fassung allerdings enttäuscht ist die Qualität der Limited Edition. Der damalige DVD-Release kam in großen silbernen Boxen daher, die wirklich was her gemacht haben. Die Limited Edition auf Blu-ray kommt hingegen in einem langweiligen Pappschuber daher, der um eine normale Blu-ray-Hülle gestülpt ist. Wer alle 4 Staffeln sammelt und die Codes online einlöst, erhält am Ende ein einfaches Blechschild mit Druck der Enterprise, auf Wunsch mit dem eigenen Namen versehen. Die Qualität von diesem Schild, wie man es auch von dem Eingang der Brücke her kennt, lässt sich noch nicht beurteilen, allerdings sollte man hier keine allzu hohe Qualität erwarten.
Wenn man also die Limited Edition mit dem damaligen DVD-Release oder der Limited Edition von TNG (mit Ansteckemblemen) vergleicht, fällt die Enterprise Box doch sehr dürftig aus. Ansonsten gibt es lediglich ein paar nutzlose Postkarten in der Schachtel, von denen man nun ehrlich gesagt gar nichts hat.
Die Serie bekommt von mir in jedem Fall 5 Sterne, aber die Limited Edition auf Blu-ray eigentlich nur 3 Sterne, daher am Ende 4 Sterne.
