Re: Why does Enterprise get so much flak?
Horrible scripts for the first 60% of the series.
Scripts so terrible and shitty that most people had quit watching before decent writing came in.
I don't think the scripts were terrible, they were simply not as involving to the general population at large, or didn't have a sense of urgency. I find the majority of the first two seasons far more watchable than the first 2 of Voyager.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
