Excellent. So we should wait for lurok to finish West Wing?

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I'm more than happy to concurrent WW or put on hold. It'll be fun to first-time watch a SF series with others

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I haven't seen Firefly, either. Is it on Youtube for the most part? Even Netflix can't really happen right now, but I'd love to be able to play along.

PS Re without rancor - seconded.

When I think of Season 3, "North Star" always seems to stand out, so I will say hat that is probably the top episode of the season. The other two are rather forgettable and don't really do much. So for Star I would rate it a C, with the others being F's.
Well, I agree with you about the C for North Star, and I could even see why you'd give Similitude an F, but Carpenter Street works for me as a one-off episode. IDK, it kind of reminds me of some of the X-Files episodes I've seen, gross bathroom pizza and all, so that was what I liked most about it.

I think the biological weapon was supposed to be a fail-safe for the weapon that was approved by the council, just in case the council failed, so it's not like the episode didn't do anything at all. Plus, they got some Xindi bodies for Phlox to study.

On Firefly, as far as setting yourself up for disappointment, the Movie Serenity, actually ties it up pretty well, so, although, it would've been nice to see it play out in longer form, it does have a satisfactory ending.

I'm not as "In Love With it" as many are, but, it's definitely a good Series, and worth watching
Same here.

I'm in. I watched it once, along with the movie, and I wouldn't mind seeing it again.

@Cthulurok - I forgot to say thank you for Leland Orser's name. I kept remembering him in a lab coat, wearing glasses, and I found that this is from The Bone Collector when I looked up his list of credits/pictures. Thanks.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Chosen Realm


I just don’t understand how all of those people became so strategically positioned all around the ship, especially in a sensitive area like where the warp reactors are. Do Archer and Malcolm (I think he’s in charge of security) not learn anything at all from their past experiences? There should have been limited areas that these people could go to (with security on standby) and that’s it.

They don’t need to roam all over the ship to receive limited medical care and a few hot meals while repairs are made to their ship. I just can’t believe that this is the 3rd year of the mission and security is still this bad. I mean, they started out taking major security precautions in this episode, and then what happened? Did the religious leader guy flash a smile and so they just stopped? It’s sad that people were hurt, and one even died, because of poor leadership. That, and they lost a lot of the data they worked so hard to get.

Grade: D minus
----------------

Proving Ground


It’s the blue people again. And it’s nice to see that the Enterprise crew are trying and talking about taking precautions with them on their ship. It looks like T'Pol was right about the Andorians, but at least Shran didn't want to double cross them.

Grade: C

I've had a look and it appears to not be on youtube

18.00 Buy it Now on ebay.

Hulu (which I am assuming is legal as I've seen it mentioned on this BBS before) has it:

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Stratagem


So, I wonder if they ever mention why the Xindi thought humans would destroy their world. All information thus far as eluded to the Xindi being the cause of their own demise with humans having nothing to do with it. They did a great job of tricking Degra into helping them, though.

Maybe it's just me, but I think trying to get rid of the weapon so the Xindi can't use it is fine and all, but shouldn't they also be trying to eliminate and at least understand the reason why the Xindi created the weapon in the first place?

What they are doing, so far, is the equivalent of someone believes you are going to kill them, and so they shoot you. You find out that they are going to shoot you, so you try to make sure they don't have the gun (or weapon) they intend to use to do the job. But, this doesn't eliminate their belief that you are going to kill them, so won't they just keep trying, either by knife or their bare hands, etc.? If you could go back and eliminate the reason why (real or fake) they think you're going to kill them, then nobody's trying to harm anybody and you can cautiously move along, right? At least that's what I'm thinking, but maybe I missed something...

Grade: C minus
----------------

Harbinger


So, now we get to see that T'Pol is in love with Trip too because of her jealousy. And things move along from there. Malcolm really doesn't like Hayes, but at least they were able to work things out. I think this happened, unspoken, before Archer berated them. And it looks like the crew's visitor has something up his sleeve or is a part of something to put into play after the Earth/Xindi war.

Grade: B

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Double meh. I'm sure I can lay my hands on a FF boxset though.

Proving Ground: loved seeing Shran and Talas, even if the plot seemed a tad forced Agree on Chosen Realm and Harbinger reviews/ratings. Thought Strategem had the potential to be another Duet/Waltz, but never quite reached those heights. But Oglesby is a damn fine actor.

IIRC, the Xindi thought the humans would be coming to wipe them out as a species, not as a world (pretty much as the Xindi went after humans even after blowing up Earth in "E2"). Regardless, Season Three works best if you don't think about continuity beyond the most basic strokes. I skipped "Harbinger" and was later confused as to where they'd gotten the corpse from, but ultimately, I didn't really care.

Yes, you will get an answer why they believe the Earthlings are a threat
