Seasons 3 and 4 are wonderful. Season 3 is one long story arc, more so than DS9. Season 4 is lots of double and triple episodes and some of the finest Trek there is. And I say that as someone who started on TOS.
Also, if you DO fancy hugging Archer because of that doco rest assured he takes his shirt off in ENT plenty.
Haha, ok. He was cute in the documentary. Wouldn't mind seeing him shirtless.
