Re: MIRROR DARKLY-seven years old. Still hold up? Your thoughts.

Lame. I couldn't have cared less what the alternate versions of the crew were up to. They're not the crew I'd been watching for four years and they didn't engage me one bit.
Agreed. Mirror Darkly was a high concept idea but low in content. It certainly didn't have to be two hours long. What makes these episodes stand apart from the mirror episodes of TOS and DS9 is that there was no crossover and therefore no link to the original crew. So most of what was happening with these one-dimensional moustache twirling alternate versions of the ENT crew didn't engage me as a viewer.

Besides that, to spend two episodes in an alternate universe when cancellation of the show was imminent seemed to me a huge waste of time, as it turned out to be in the end.
