Re: Just seen the last episode... I'm outrage!
Folks can say what they like about Enterprise, but ENT seasons 1 & 2 were stronger that both VOY and DS9 seasons 1 & 2. Especially DS9's.
DS9's first two seasons were meh IMO, but VOY's were prety much terrible. I caught some reruns on TV a few years ago, and I was stunned at how bad they actually were.
TNG's first two seasons were utter shit as well, and I'm with you on this one, compared to all this, ENT's seasons 1 & 2 aren't that bad at all...
Season 2 gets a lot of hate, but that's mostly because of the "shit-stain arc" (A Night in Sickbay, Marauders, The Seventh, The Communicator, Singularity, Vanishing Point, Precious Cargo, The Catwalk, Dawn, might as well throw in Stigma). There are some real gems there too (Carbon Creek, Minefield, First Flight).
My tastes are a little different than yours. I'm not near as hard on ENT Season 2.
Of those you listed, I would only put ANIS and Dawn down as stinkers.
But I'm glad that someone else see's what I see. As you said, especially comparing to TNG.
I'm a huge trek fans and I almost quit watching DS9 early on. (glad I stuck with it though)
