The best episode of ENT - Part Two

Okay Trek fans, this game has been successful on the boards for the other shows, and I hope it prospers here as well. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you play again. Not a very accurate way of determining the best episode, but a fun game nonetheless. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

A Night in Sickbay: Archer goes into a snit when Porthos gets sick after peeing on a treasured tree on the Kretassan homeworld. The captain decides to punish the Kretassans by refusing to buy desperately needed plasma injectors Trip begged him to get.
T'Pol's lips and boobs become a distraction. There's a funeral that morphs into a nude T'Pol scene. And later, T'Pol rips Archer a new one for not putting a diaper on his dog.

Oh dear, too slow off the bat! Good choice anyway.

Okay, if I can't have ANiS then I'll go for Bounty instead. Another silly episode. The producers were trying anything for ratings at this point I think!

Precious Cargo - utterly pointless and predictable A plot, forced "sexual tension" between Trip and the princess, terrible "acting" by what's-her-name.

But OMG, season 2 is full of crappy episodes.

Re: The best episode of ENT - Part Two

I'm actually watching Season Two through Netflix right now, and it's actually not that bad. Most of the weak episodes in this season are more because they're painfully dull and/or unoriginal than they are actually bad. Except for ANIS, of course.

Dawn: Another unoriginal episode. A very dull "Enemy Mine" ripoff.

Horizon - finally they give poor Travis something to do, and it's dull, predictable and badly acted.

Season Two was distinctly average throughout - I can only remember a few episodes I really enjoyed. It wasn't full of stinkers or anything but the show was crying out for a shakeup by the end of the year.

The Crossing: Getting possessed by non-corporeal aliens has never been so painful to watch. Their ship is impressive and being inside the belly of that beast, in EV suits, has a Motion Picture vibe to it. While Trip is taken over, he gets to live out an unseen fantasy. He comes back telling us he'd been with some old Western movie star, nobody watching will have even heard of. Naturally Reed's occupant is horny for T'Pol simply because this is on UPN.

Watch Observer Effect instead and you'll see how this one should've been done. That at least, is genuinely creepy.

Marauders. It was done so much better as The Seven Samarai. Or The Magnificent Seven. Or A Bug's Life.

We all know that the Klingons came back and nuked that colony from space the minute Enterprise left.

It is one of the few episodes I hate, and the only one I can't watch any part of, ever.

The Communicator: We can't do anything to risk damaging this culture. So when they figure out we're not who we say we are, instead of telling them the truth, let's tell the already-paranoid military that we're enemy super-soldiers armed with highly advanced weaponry! Because that won't backfire!

Stigma - in an episode that's an allegory about a woman getting AIDS from being raped, let's have a comedy B-plot about how a woman forces herself on a man who is clearly made uncomfortable by her advances.

Cogenitor - Trip was out of character and Archer was wrong in the way he handled him at the end.

And Singularity is gone. I absolutely hate those episodes where everyone acts completely differently. You don't get to see what the characters are really like, it's just an excuse to have everyone act crazy for forty minutes and then there's a big "Oh, it's all right now" at the end. I hate Dramatis Personae for the same reason.

The Seventh: Deadly boring. Bruce Davison is a great actor and he was dull as a plastic spoon, probably because the script sucked. And T'Pol needs Archer to give her permission to SHOOT the bio-weapons dealer using a STUN setting? Really?

BTW: Why is Vanishing Point still alive?

You left out the part where the KLINGON got his butt kicked by a 95 pound Vulcan.

Vulcans are about as strong as Klingons are, and a disciplined fighter will beat an enraged brute just about every time.

Minefield
Dead Stop
Vanishing Point
Cease Fire

The Catwalk: Another 'meh' episode with a yawn-worthy Space Anomaly of the Week. Also because I know "Vanishing Point" won't last much longer and I must defend my beloved Hoshi!
