Re: Should I give Enterprise another chance?

They do a few "what if" type stories with "Twilight", "E2 (E squared)", and the Mirror Universe episode. Even the Temporal Cold War is sort of a bunch of "what ifs". So that helps ease the lack of a holodeck. I think part of the show's problem was they couldn't afford to go outdoors enough for location shooting. It gets claustrophobic with a bunch of ship shows in a row.

Re: Should I give Enterprise another chance?

I like the claustrophobia because it contributes to how we know they are feeling very far from home, disconnected and doing frontier space. No Julian, you weren't doing frontier anything, they were.

Perhaps I will. I'll try to watch it with an open mind, too. Part of my beef with ENT was that it took place before all of the other series - and before the forming of the Federation - and therefore seemed so much less Trek-y. But I'll do my best to remain impartial and unbiased this time around.

I wish it had been as un-Trekky as I had hoped.

What do you mean? You wanted it to be un-Trekky? Why?

I guess unTrekky could be considered no time travel episodes... I swear Enterprise had like one out of four of their episodes relate to time travel in some form or fashion.

Re: Should I give Enterprise another chance?

I wanted more grit and swearing and less polish and goodness. It didn't seem very different than other Trek, not in a way that said they were pre-Federation. I'm always surprised when people say it wasn't star trek because it seemed quintessentially star trek to me.

Anyway, I'm a big fan of ENT. I hope you enjoy it

Re: Should I give Enterprise another chance?

My problem during first run is I missed too many episodes, and had no idea what was going on in the Temporal Cold War and Xindi Arcs.

Don't worry, the Temporal Cold War never went anywhere conclusive and the Xindi arc... well would that be a spoiler.

Re: Should I give Enterprise another chance?

The best advice I can give you is to just watch the show and stay out of here until you finish it. That way your perspective will remain uninfluenced by the random fanboyishness of those who champion other T.V. shows.

Re: Should I give Enterprise another chance?

It's not Star Trek. Know that going in and you'll have a better understanding.

It also depends on your taste in writing. If you read Twilight and 50 Shades of Gray and thought they were both top-notch, best writing in the world, then yes, you'll enjoy Enterprise.

If you think Gigli, Disaster Movie, and Scary Movie 4 were robbed of the Oscar, then yes you'll enjoy Enterprise.

Otherwise, it's best to go with that first impression and leave it alone.

Did you watch the opening credits? Every Star Trek series had Star Trek in the title. Beginning with the Next Generation right up through and including Voyager, it was Star Trek: followed by the subtitle.

Except Enterprise. Even Paramount acknowledged Enterprise isn't Star Trek. Make of that whatever you will.

You obviously didn't watch seasons 3-4.
