NCIS: New Orleans – The Sixth Season finds some more soap opera-esque storylines and characters and while this is still my least favorite of the franchise, I do like Scott Bakula even with his cringey Orleans’s accent.
Sibling Rivalry is a quirky fun, if not also forgettable, 1990s comedy with a semi-impressive cast of who’s who of that era. While the plot doesn’t work and performances that aren’t always the best, it’s still one of those watchable flicks that you probably won’t regret afterward yet have little interest in re-visiting anytime soon.
“NCIS: New Orleans” is I’d say passable entertainment and an OK start for its first season thanks in part with some satisfactory storylines and story arcs to go along with the charisma Scott Bakula still possesses even in the much maligned “Enterprise.” This 6-disc DVD set is well done with some decent enough bonus features and good video/audio transfers.
Lord of Illusions is an uneven yet admirable little supernatural-thriller-horror that Barker himself described as a cross between Chinatown and The Exorcist, and although in the end I wasn’t that enthralled, the director’s cut is still well worth checking out. The 2-disc Blu-ray set has a good set of bonus materials and the video/audio transfers are both well done.
“Enterprise”: Season Four was a big step forward for the series producing some of the best and most memorable drama maybe through all of the “Trek” series. Unfortunately, thanks to so-so ratings and a floundering network, it was too little too late; at least now it’s memorialized on Blu-ray high-definition and filled with a plethora number of features.
“Star Trek: Enterprise”: Season Three is the “Star Trek” fans wanted providing for some amazing stories and a season-long story arc to go along with remarkable performances from the core cast. The Blu-ray released by Paramount once again gives us good/excellent picture and audio transfers and a wealth of extras worth perusing.
“Star Trek: Enterprise” Season One serves as fine entertainment but not much more as it doesn’t come close to the drama of “The Next Generation” or the performances from “Voyager” and “Deep Space Nine”. Even so, there’s something about the then fledgling series which I enjoyed and can only hope it improves with each season. The Blu-ray release, however, has a fantastic selection of features, the audio transfer is pretty good and the video, not without its own problems, is in the acceptable range.
