Re: Why I like Enterprise so much

VELOUR! That was the word i was looking for. In some other thread. About the catsuits. The godawful velour ones should have been turned into Porthos rugs.

I've always wondered what the thinking was with T'Pols look in the first two seasons. You take your "sexy" character and put her in a horrible rug of a wig and the ugliest catsuit ever made?
I am no authority on this, but my guess is Jolene may have had other commitments at the time, not allowing her to cut her hair or shave her brows. What those might've been, again, I don't know. Modelling, probably. Or maybe it was social, in origin? A reluctance on her part to "suffer" for her "art." I can relate to her not wanting to go around in public with tufts of eyebrow and a bob cut, when her hair was so fantastic. Kirstie Alley had certainly gotten away with using her own eyebrows in TWOK. And yes, Jolene is hot, but she shouldn't be required to pull off every look and make it look completely natural on her. The show let her down - and us - trotting her out that way. But, again, what can you do? We get what the studio gives us - take it, or leave it, almost.

Its not her wearing a wig that's the problem, its that the wig they gave her was terrible. She wore a wig in seasons 3&4 too but it was a much better wig.

Re: Why I like Enterprise so much

Well, let's take a closer look at this (because we can )

I chose 2 episodes and found pics with roughly the same profile.

The first Fallen Hero (S1):


The second from Similitude (S3):


Wow, maybe I was not correct? Is it a different wig?

IS the big change that sets her off the eye brows?

^It looks different to me: the first seems to sit high, giving T'Pol an oddly shaped head.

Re: Why I like Enterprise so much

If you watch THE FORGE (4th Season Episode), Jolene and Scott are out in the elements and her hair is being blown around enough to see that it's not a wig at all. It's her natural hair! That and the fact that she got the eyebrows applied competently, make her look like a very naturalistic Vulcan. Unfortunately, Michael Westmore couldn't do much about making her fake boobs look more realistic ...

According to cast comments in the featurettes for the series, nobody liked the first wig, describing it like a bathing cap.

About T'Pols make up

In the third season there was a major change to TPols appearance in both her makeup and her costume: she got a sexier uniform, a better looking wig, Vulcan eyebrows, and lipstick.

I'm sure breast implants serve a logical purpose.

All that breast implants have in their favour is size ... And what of Trip & T'Pol's son from another Time Line? I would have scoffed at the mention of T'Pol having breastfed her infant son, in that episode. Poor kid, barely surviving off of silicates for however long, until his first taste of Table Fare! And fake boobs do not seem very much fun to play with, considering that they're not real and would not feel real. They certainly don't behave as real breasts should, particularly when she is laying down! So, Long-Made-Short, the answer is a resounding "yes" to the question of whether, or not, there is something wrong with enhancements!
