Re: Rewatching Star Trek Enterprise

It's a fair point to make. Why not just have some buff man walking around shirtless all the time. That's the same sexist logic of the catsuits.

Seven of Nine was an interesting character, but the catsuit really distracted from her.
Leeta was just a bimbo in revealing clothing and Quark made no qualms about it.
T'Pol was just a wooden Vulcan who's catsuit failed to compensate for lack of personality.

Personally I'd rather have a fat person in a burlap sack who's interesting than a hot person who brings little to the episode beyond their looks.

Gerry Anderson's old UFO series did something like that. Aboard the Skydiver submarine vehicle, barechested men wore revealing skintight fishnet shirts. Women wore the fishnet shirts too, but they had bras underneath, which I always cursed as a cheat.

Sadly, many people say that, but far less actually act accordingly.

Something I really appreciated about Stargate. Lots of very interesting characters who were also interesting looking but not traditionally hot.

When I watch Trek, I'm out for some scifi... if I wanted hotties, I'd go to a porn site.

OR you could be like me and just hottify everyone in your head.

Porn wasn't as readily available when I was growing up so Sherry Jackson's camel toe was a Godsend!

Dear God, do you hate yourself that much?!?! Self-flagellation would be far less painful than suffering through a Jolene Blalock performance. They should have named her character T'Pu (pronounced "T"-poo ).
Why do you try to keep crapping on something someone else enjoys? If you dislike the series that much, why waste so much time in this particular forum?
Because I am still trying to work through the pain and emotional scarring left in the wake of the crap-fest known as "Enterprise" and the Jolene Blalock induced tinnitus that has her raspy, cokehead-like voice still lingering in my ears. Every episode of this stinker seemed to restate the Horta-ish message, "No thrill I."
As of tonight, I have now started Season 3!!!

Ahhh, my favorite season (there are however a few dogs; "Hatchery" and "Extinction" come to mind). I love "Twilight" which may be my favorite episode of the series. Will be interested in reading your review

Re: Rewatching Star Trek Enterprise

Well if there's demand, I can always rewatch Enterprise and rip into it as much as it deserves! The bright side is I haven't watched through Enterprise near as much as I have the other series. The bad side would be I'd have to watch episodes like ANIS, Stormfront and TATV again.
