Re: Dare I Continue?

Yes continue. It's Star Trek, and therefore automatically beats anything else on TV. Even bad Star Trek is better than anything else. Seasons 1 and 2 have some pretty good episodes, but overall, feel like VOYAGER seasons 8 and 9. Season 3 is the biggest waste of a storyline in Star Trek history, but I won't say more than that. You decide. Season four is what the show should have been from the beginning.

And of course, if you can sit through 80 odd hours of that pompus-ass-jackass- jerk-moron-idiot Trip Tucker, the single biggest worthless loser in the history of Star Trek characters, you can put up with anything.....

Yes, many. Better to watch it all. At least half of the episodes should be interesting to you, I would say.

Re: Dare I Continue?

Alright, I'm going for it. Here are two I just watched:

Rogue Planet: Dull, but I am so happy to be watching new Star Trek again that I don't really care! Hunting is bad, I guess??? Especially if the species being hunted can transform into hot women from your wildest dreams???
4/10

Acquisition: Fun spaceship heist episode with the Ferengi......not much more, but enough comedic moments to keep it going.
5/10

AdmScreed that's the way I felt when I finally watched ENT under my own steam (had to give up the way it was shown on tv here). NEW TREK!!! It was insanely exciting that NEW TREK even existed. And when you get to the places where you realize you are watching not just new Trek, but extremely good Trek you will be even more thrilled.

Re: Dare I Continue?

Now, Now there is nothing wrong with the last episode of ENT the "Terra Prime", "Demons" story line ends the show on a positive note.

Yes there was another episode which followed but surely that is an episode of TNG, given it's framing.

I don't know about that. However, the finale is easily disposable.

Let me add my endorsement for season 4. The universe that they explore feels to be the right size. The show isn't struggling to expand upon the themes of the 24th century series AND be a prequel at the same time. And the Federation is finally given a raison d'être.

Re: Dare I Continue?

Yeah, I felt like creators went above their heads to make Season 4 so good knowing the show is about to get cancelled. They tied so many loose ends from previous trek shows...
And they planted the seeds for the future Earth-Romulan war that everyone knew was coming.
It is really too bad the show was cancelled. It might have gone for 2 more seasons if there weren't so many TNG-purist naysayers.

Re: Dare I Continue?

What killed ENT was a rather lucklustre seasons 1-2. Following on from the rather lacklustre VOY (according to a portion of the fanbase).

So the first 2 season kind of sucked? Though luck, but season 3-4 were good, so that's 2 years where the show did not suck. Except at that time a large portion of the fanbase were advocating the cancellation of Enterprise and focusing on a new Trek show in TNG era. I wonder if we have such fans on this board. They must feel proud of themselves.
Maybe we'll get a new show in 2025.

It certainly didn't suck, it just was a bit dull. Still some good eps though, and the ship looks great IMO (I love the ship).

I like it too. But a purist might say it's in fact an upside down Akira.

Re: Dare I Continue?

Yeah for some reason all modern Trek (TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT) have a bit of a lackluster Season One. Some argued that it was "finding it's way" but series have been cancelled for less, and most TOS Season One eps don't get as bad a rep!

Season Twos seemed to be a little hit-and miss - yes TNG's Shades of Grey, I see you hiding there behind that "But I was just a bottle show" placard!

But almost universally, they all hit their stride at the Season Three mark, and Enterprise is no exception.

Stick with it, and you'll be rewarded.
