Enterprise. If you voted for it you obviously want to watch it.

I just picked it in order to see the poll results.

Enterprise - the relentlessley mini-skirted Marina Sirtis in the first season of TNG unnerves me.....

Easy one.

Hedonist - TNG

Masochist - ENT

TNG... but start with S3.

As much as I love Enterprise, my personal answer: to watch TNG or (anything) the answer will always be TNG.

Particularly if you grew up in the 80s. If you are younger ENT may be the way to go.

Have you seen them both already?

If I wanted to watch STAR TREK, and I hadn't seen STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, it's an obvious starting point. ENTERPRISE can come later.

Asking "Should I watch TNG or ENT?" is like asking "Should I eat a delicious steak or pour some ants into my trousers?" Watch TNG, and skip ENT.

Both. You can't know for sure if you'd like them, so your best option is to watch both. However, you should start with TNG Season 3, since the first two seasons suck and TNG was made earlier than ENT.

For ENT, I suggest that you start with the first few episodes, and if you don't like them enough to watch the series in order, ask for a list of good and significant episodes from the first two seasons on the ENT forum. After those episodes, start watching the series in order from the S2 finale on. (Season 3 is extremely serialized and Season 4 embraces the prequel concept of the series. Both are much better than the first two.)

You can do that by clicking on "View results". There is no need to vote.

Whichever one you vote for, you're going to have to watch some dodgy episodes in the first 2 seasons, that may easily make you give up. But it gets much better.

Overall, I'd say watch both, but if I need to choose just one, depends on your taste. Can you tell me which Trek shows have you watched and which ones you liked the best?

The first two seasons of both shows are their weakest - but the first two seasons of TNG are weaker than the first two seasons of Enterprise.

The remaining seasons of TNG, much like the remaining seasons of Enterprise, are of good quality.

I personally consider TNG to be far superior to Enterprise.

I'd start with ENT. While TNG is great, you might get a different perspective on Trek by starting with ENT.
