That sounds a little different when you say it..
It should. Do they not proofread these scripts? Your main male antagonist's first line to the female lead shouldn't involve "knock you on your ass."

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Oh I know, it's pretty much my least favorite thing in the whole of Star Trek. I've ranted about it many times.

I did have a revelation about it a couple years ago however. I was watching TOS and listening to the aggressiveness Kirk used in speech as well as other characters I decided that they made Archer like this to connect him to the Kirk era. After all these humans aren't just like us, they've come out of a long recovery following a horrific third world war.

This is what I originally posted on it in my Archer's Aggression Explained! thread, LOL

"I have been watching all of TOS again and having finished that I just watched Broken Bow and you know.. the human aggressive reactions fit right in with Kirk and McCoy. You don't think Captain Kirk would stand around letting the Vulcans look down on him do you? He'd be volatile. McCoy would be all huffy and pissy about logic and having no heart. This is the first time I've seen what I perceived as embarrassing behavior on Archer's part as part of the Trek continuum, connected to the great Captain Kirk."

Detained



A decent episode about Suliban that are unjustly held against their will. As a side note, the Quantum Leap buddies are together again.

Grade: C
---------

Vox Sola


An interesting concept, but you could fall asleep watching it.

Grade: C minus

And I agree with you about "Vox Sola." Not good, not bad, just...boring.

And I have.

Note to future sci fi shows: Stuck in alien goo is NOT good drama! I mean they are stuck, how much can they do?

Detained- I liked that they tried to flesh out the Suliban and give them some depth but the episode still suffers from the lifelessness that most of the first 2 seasons suffer from.

Vox Sola- I've never looked at this episode the same way since TheGodBen's review.

Very true. It would take a lot for it to end up being good.

LOL!! Well if you think that's bad, then don't watch the episode. You know, I wouldn't have thought anything about it until you said something...

It's not that bad, but nothing good ever comes out of the main male antagonist being stuck in a pile of white alien goo.

I don't know how bad it does or doesn't look, but I do know that if I had what you seem to be suggesting in mind, the episode might have been a little bit more "colorful" to me.

And by the way, it had plenty of moments just like that screen cap. See below if you dare, lol.












I guess I didn't watch it properly to have any of those ideas, but once you opened the flood-gates...

(Sorry, but I didn't see spoiler tags in my menu, or else I would have used them.)
