Re: Theory About Why Most Don't Care for Enterprise as Much...
A secondary reason is the Temporal Cold War. People seemed intrigued by it, supported it, but that all changed in Season 2. People seemed to realize B&B were making it up on the fly and didn't have anything plotted out for it.
There was a reason for B&B's attitude toward the TCW--they didn't really want to do it. They were asked to come up with something "post-VOY" (in a TOS prequel?), but if it had been left to them, the TCW wouldn't have happened.
