I know that feeling. I was stunned that Enterprise went four seasons and that Jolene Blalock got cast as T'pol.

I was also stunned to learn of how many times Anthony Montgomery was still on set delivering lines when the studio lights were turned off and all had gone home for the night.

I was surprised it went more than one season. It was terrible, from the pathetic excuse for writing to the acting that made a third grade production of Hair look like the RSC.

and that Jolene Blalock got cast as T'pol.
I'm not saying the casting couch is alive and well in Hollywood. I am saying she did not get cast because of her acting talent - she has none.

Not really Anthony's fault. It's the writers'. He wasn't a character, he was set dressing, and the scripts treated him as such.

Though I agree with the totality of your post, I would especially like to say here, "I, agree." Anthony Montgomery wasn't given anything to do or work with on "Enterprise" Both he and Linda Park were done a real disservice by the writting. Blalock aside, they had a pretty talented group of actors who were repeatedly betrayed by the scripts they were given.

Surely you can understand the context in which the word "betrayed" is being used (even if you disagree with the opinion). It's like the scripts Irwin Allen was forcing upon June Lockhart, Guy Williams and the rest of the talented cadre of actors during the making of "Lost in Space." I'm just glad "Enterprise" was cancelled before they had to intervene in a giant interplanetary vegetable rebellion.

Re: Stunned!

I just finished watching "Observer Effect." This episodic story takes me back to the first two seasons when they were simply explorers like TOS and TNG. And that's okay...but I just really loved the episodes "The Expanse" through "Storm Front" (basically Season 3). Really awesome if you ask me. Season 4...so far it's decent, but it's just difficult to top S3 for me.

The Vulcan trilogy wasn't one of my favorite group of episodes. I found it hard to believe that T'Pol's mother was suddenly part of the underground group. Based on what we saw from her in the episode "Home," she seemed to be the type who appreciated status and appearance over conviction, at least that's the feeling I got from her. Now just a couple of episodes later we're supposed to believe she's part of an underground movement? I found it difficult to swallow. I think it would have been better to have T'Pol's husband as one of the Vulcans working for the High Command, perhaps aim a phaser at T'Pol at some point. Ah well. But it's always great to see Jeffrey Combs, and of course Robert Foxworth (who I really enjoyed in DS9)!

It was also a nice surprise to see Brent Spiner again in his 3 episodes! That was an interesting take on Soong and the "augments."

Looking forward to the rest of the series. Hard to believe there are so few episodes left. By the way, I have no doubt I'm in the minority based on what I've read, but I actually like Jolene Blalock's portrayal of T'Pol. When I read on this board somewhere that Blalock is an "air head," I looked up one of her talk show appearances on youtube. That's not the personality I was expecting! So to me, she must have some talent since she was able to pull off a completely different persona with T'Pol. She's actually my third favorite Vulcan after Spock and Sarek.

In the DVD series collection special features, Connor Trinneer says she has the hardest job in the show, due to the character. Her blooper reel clips show how much she focuses on maintaining T'Pol, and when she does blow a line or react to someone's clowning (often Bakula), it's a complete turnaround from T'Pol's personality. I've done stage work (not professionally), and it's obvious she did work hard at keeping the persona. But sometimes someone goofing around off camera could throw her off, or some of John Billingsley's weird Phlox vocalizations could reduce her to laughter.

While I like the actor, Robert Foxworth (and his DS9 role was really good), here it was an utter train wreck of a performance. As someone who is supposed to be Vulcan, enough so to fool the planet, its quite possible the worst performance for a fairly large guest role of any Vulcan ever done on ENterprise. HE shouldn't have been able to climb the ranks of the High Command. That single performance ruined my perception of the Vulcan High Command. It was laughable bad. Seriously either a producer or the director should have been dialing back that performance. This is one of the times it shouldn't go to eleven.

The first part of that arc was really well done though, its after that it falls apart.

Re: Stunned!

^ not sure if they're going to come back to this storyline (having not yet seen the entire series), but I'm holding out hope that Foxworth's character is actually a Romulan? That's what I was thinking as I watched his performance. I know that doesn't help the fact that none of the other members of the High Command relieved him of his position or at least called him out on his clear and growing outbursts of anger. I thought they were all working together in his evil plot except the one guy who kept questioning everything. I was expecting V'Las to kill that guy but it never happened.

Mayweather. Seriously, seriously the actor might be great, but the idea of having the outside, the one who's lived his whole life on the edge of known space, as the most well mannered, easy going perfectly groomed person was a huge, huge mistake. Mayweather never, recovered as a character.
This was no surprise at all to me -- we met his mom.

I always thought V'Las was, in fact, a Romulan. IIRC, he was quite keen on returning to Romulus at the end of the episode where he appeared, but his assistant said it would draw too much suspicion. That would seem to indicate that V'Las was indeed Romulan - a deep cover spy, as it were.
