Ridiculous logic. The audience isn't responsible for a show being a failure. The makers of the show are.
Depends what you mean by audience. I find that usually the minority make a much bigger noise.
Yes, but if those in charge ever actually cared what the internet loudmouths thought, Smallville would have been cancelled in season one, instead of being allowed to "rape Superman's legacy" for ten whole years. JJ Abrams' Star Trek would never have reached the filming stage.

Enterprise was cancelled due to low ratings, high costs and a network boss more interested in ultra-cheap reality shows.

I assure you all, I am not flaming or trolling... I actually love star trek. I love the idea, I loved TNG, and for the most part I really enjoyed the movies.

I am a realist, and I speak it like it is. This show is just really, painfully awful.

I am not going to lie. I kind of liked a few episodes. But for the most part it is really badly done, the characters are pretty weak, and its pretty boring and cheesy.
To me it sounds like you're describing The Next Generation. I recently enjoyed rewatches of Voyager, Enterprise and The Original Series. Although all had bad episodes, I felt the good very much outweighed the bad. But I stopped halfway through TNG. It's wasn't nearly as good I remembered. Other than Picard, Data and Pulaski, the other characters were virtually nonexistant, personality-wise (perhaps I've been spoiled by the novels). And I found the direction awful - the way they just stand there, arms at their sides, taking turns reciting lines...

Agree. TNG was basically the only star trek show that did very well in ratings from beginning to end. This fact is often very annoying to fans of other trek shows, amusingly. (Hey, don't get mad at me. I love TOS, TNG, and DS9!)
Yes, this is what I could find.

Nacluv, posting a link to an article is fine, but cutting and pasting in huge amounts of text from that article is not. Paraphrasing is your friend.

Not bothering to add a word of commentary after posting a link is what we call spamming. Please add some content to your posts, okay? --HR

Like every other Star Trek series, it's very hit or miss. When it's good, it's really good. When it's bad, it's really bad.

Re: This show sucks shit

Sexy Human:

Well now, you've had five posts to insert some content into this thread with which you have graced us, but alas, I have yet to see any from you. "This show sucks shit" does not qualify as substantive enough material on which to base a meaty discussion.

Normally a disgruntled viewer is free to spew whatever vitriol he or she needs to get out of his or her system. We have many members who seem to derive immeasurable joy from heaping negativity upon this series. But they usually have the saving grace of going into more detail about why they hate the show... plot, characters, and suchlike, so others can discuss the topic. We are a discussion board, after all.

Since this is the third hate thread you've started in less than two days, I think we get the idea now. Time to say good-bye to this one.
