Re: So I have FINALLY started watching Enterprise... love it so far!!

Doesn't every Trek need at least one episode where Our Heroes have reverted to gibbering animals?

I can't remember, did DS9 have one?

"Babel," one of its earliest episodes.

I applaud them trying to do something different in "Extinction" and going all-out in the process. I can see why some hate the episode, but I didn't mind it.

I don't think it was different, seemed like classic TNG era Trek to me.

Don't think it was horrible mind you, just more of the same. Right down to the stupid moral dilemma about the stupid virus or whatever.

That's the camp I'm in.

I think it gets more heat because it really didn't contribute to the Season 3 story line.

But, getting to see T'pol in white is never a bad thing.

Next episode "Rajiin":

Well, I was briefly worried this was going to be classic "beautiful woman comes onboard, all the males fall for her due to X pheromones or whatever" but luckily that didn't happen. What's interesting about this one is the good guys LOST - which has sort of happened before - and adds to the 'realism' of this Trek. You know, the Xindi come in and hopelessly outclass the crew (I loved the sequence of them boarding and taking back Rajiin; it was sort of shocking, but well staged), Rajiin escapes (with what she was after as well!), Tucker and T'Pol didn't sort of the trillium-D...

Season 3 of "Enterprise" is almost like "The Empire Strikes Back" of Trek. Our heroes are really fighting a losing battle here.

I feel maybe Rajiin could've been better cast. Or perhaps not. Just felt something was a little 'off' about her performance.

All in all though, a solid enough episode. I have no doubt things "will work out in the end", but Trek just got a lot darker.

Into Season 3!:

"The Xindi": Wow... this is dark. I didn't expect much in the way of light-hearted adventure for the first episode of the season, but... yikes. When the mining warden threw over the severed finger... This was a good start to the season. I like the way the Expanse is being played up as truly weird and dangerous. The Xindi council looks like a hodgepodge of classic Trek foreheads and CGI, interesting idea that the 'species' is essentially more than one sub-species.
I like the addition of the MACOs too. Logical idea, and looking forward to seeing more tension between them and Reed as they've essentially taken a large part of his remit...

"Anomaly": I liked this one a lot. The aliens were suitably dangerous, and the pacing was good. I quite enjoyed Archer's "descent into darkness" - his way of 'interrogating' the prisoner and how uncomfortable Reed was about it played very well.


As a general observation, though I appreciate the dark and desperate nature of where the series is going, I hope we haven't lost all the fun adventure/light-hearted character interaction of the first two seasons. If it's gone forever, I might just be the first person in the world ever to say he prefers season 1-2 of Enterprise than what came after! I have faith that the producers wouldn't do that though...
We just watched these two last night... I forgot how much darker the show became. It is taking a bit getting used to again.
I do love the new look of the show aswell. I know that the differences aren't as big as the changes from season 3 to 4, but the little things make all the difference. Jolene's new wig, the new lights on the bridgeconsoles, the cinematogrophy feels slightly different. All in all, really looking forward to continuing seeing 3.

I loved all the blinky lights they added to the bridge in season 3, it greatly added to the atmosphere. They even made the TOS-style blinking coloured squares blink more aggressively.

Agree. I noticed that as well.

Oh, cut the bleeding heart crap, will ya? We've all got our switches, lights, and knobs to deal with, Striker. I mean, down here there are literally hundreds and thousands of blinking, beeping, and flashing lights, blinking and beeping and flashing - they're *flashing* and they're *beeping*. I can't stand it anymore! They're *blinking* and *beeping* and *flashing*!

Sorry could resits using this quote from a film.

Re: So I have FINALLY started watching Enterprise... love it so far!!

I love every Star Trek series equally. Voyager has always been my favorite. I'm currently running DS9 since I have the full set. I had just finished watching Voyager (I have the full set of that too). Nothing they do bothers me. It's always been very good theater and very good television. The thing that I didn't like about Enterprise wasn't about the series itself. Rather, UPN's non-stop and very obnoxious graphics that they plastered all over the screen drove me away in the beginning of the second season. I waited for the full set to come out on DVD after that.

I'll have to admit. I think I enjoy rewatching Voyager the most. For all the horror stories I've heard about UPN and Enterprise, I'm glad I didn't see it until I bought the DVD's.

Next episode, "Impulse":

Well, one thing is for sure, no other Trek series can touch Enterprise when it comes to sinister/spooky/horror-type stories! And here is another one. Looks like my wish for the odd 'lighter' episode in season 3 may go unanswered... but that aside, this was a great episode. The scenes on the Vulcan ship were so well shot, and those zombie Vulcans really were pretty horrifying! Reed got to look cool and shoot guns, so he's happy, and the claustrophobic feeling of despair for the away team really came through.

Zombie Vulcans!

Awful, you really feel compassion for them even as they are somehow creepier than human zombies.
