I just finished Season 1 too and I think there were definitely a few shining episodes. Some stinkers, sure. But overall I am really liking it a lot. I don't get why a lot of Trek fans tend to dislike it so much. I really like T'Pol. I looked ahead and saw who she eventually gets paired with (I won't reveal spoilers here!) and I'm not sure what to think of it yet.
My favorite episodes are the later ones of Season 1. From "Shadows of P'Jem" and on.
Anyway, I'm excited to start Season 2~
