Re: Best Episode of ENT | Final Poll

These are all great eps, but not the ones I would pick as the best of ENT ever. Of these, I would go with Carbon Creek.

"Shuttlepod One."

I really like or downright love all four picks, but to this day S1 has something that keeps me riveted. It's not your father's TREK episode. No time travel. No anomalies. No pressing, deadly alien attack, spy mission or threat. Just two guys who think they're going to die soon trapped in a confined space and coming to grips with their mortality.

First of all, there isn't an episode here I don't love. But I've really got to go with...

Observer Effect.

Everything from the strange chess game opening, characters being taken over, their glances to each other... the first giveaway sign, to Archer preventing Phlox from taking off his gloves and exposing himself to the disease, then his heartfelt plea that got through to one of the Organians. Perfect... and one of the strongest bottle shows in the whole of Trek.

Re: Best Episode of ENT | Final Poll

S1 was one of the reasons I got so damn unhinged when ENT was cancelled. I thought to myself: "No more Trip and Malcolm in uncomfortable sitations? BURN IN HELL, LES MOONVES."

Re: Best Episode of ENT | Final Poll

None of the listed choices would be my personal choices for respective seasons' best (and I'm surprised it's not Dead Stop or something instead of Carbon Creek as a choice for Season Two), but ...

... I have to go with Twilight here. Shuttlepod One would be runner-up, but I think Twilight has more 'weight' to it. It's more a poignant tragedy. It's more epic. And that doesn't always equal good or better. Shuttlepod One is a great character piece, and I love it. But in this instance ... I just think that Twilight is better. It gave us, as viewers, a better perspective/appreciation of the whole Xindi threat by showing what the consequences of potential failure would be. And it had some of Archer and T'Pol's best interactions. And the ending, where he commented that she would make a good nurse ... was very poignant. Though the characters didn't know that, we did. Just how close they came from having that future be the real future ...

Re: Best Episode of ENT | Final Poll

My favorite's not on the list -- Similitude.

Of the list, I'd say Observer Effect.

Re: Best Episode of ENT | Final Poll

Most "Final Polls" around here rarely include THE actual "best" per se. But the four choices we were given were no slouches so I'm satisfied.

Ooh, who would have thought Twilight and Observer Effect would put up such a close neck-and-neck race!

Re: Best Episode of ENT | Final Poll

I'm actually shocked "Observer Effect" has THIS many votes. I always knew it was good and serviceable, but not better than S1. More power to it, though!
