Re: Season 1

Season 1: Bad
Season 2: Very bad
Season 3: Alright
Season 4: Pretty good.

Though ENT brings up the rear of my favorites list behind DS9, TNG, VOY and TOS.

Re: Season 1

Season one: Meh, with a few good ones.
Season two: Meh, with some AWFUL ones, and some good ones later.
Season three: OMG AWESOME!!!
Season four: Good (although you need to see TOS and TNG to "get" most of it, since it'a prequel-mania)

Re: Season 1

Season one - mediocre
Season two - mediocre to poor
Season three - mediocre to good
Season four - good to very good

This is all relative to how I rate Enterprise vs. my favorite, The Original Series.

Re: Season 1

Well here is my take:
Season 1: Pretty good, but some mediocre episodes
Season 2: Like season 1, but with some outstanding episodes and also some very bad ones too
Season 3: Very good
Season 4: Amazing (it is on my Top 5 all time Star Trek seasons)

Re: Season 1

Of the four, Season 1 has the most episodes I'd rather not rewatch. And they usually come in bunches. "Unexpected" and "Terra Nova" back to back, really early on, is kind of a buzzkill. "Rogue Planet"/"Acquisition"/"Oasis" is possibly worse, though I do always appreciate seeing Odo again. The rest of the season is pretty good to decent. Definitely a better first season than TNG or Voyager had.

Season 2 only has two episodes I can't really stand, "A Night in Sickbay" and "Precious Cargo" but they are easily worse than anything in season 1. "A Night in Sickbay" is worse than most things in general. The season on the whole lacks direction but episode to episode there's little that really turns me off, other than the previously mentioned clunkers. I used to be pretty down on this season and the series in general but these days I tend not to put any one season entirely in the minus column. There's honestly worse in the franchise.

Season 3 has some good stuff in it but I don't know that I'm sold on it as some massive improvement over the first two seasons. Season 4 on the other hand does stand out as the best of the bunch.

Re: Season 1

Season 3 blew me away. It was was incredible and one of my favorite seasons of all Trek. The other seasons were good but not great for me (overall).

Re: Season 1

I think season 1 is weak compared to season 3 and 4. I didn't enjoy several of the contrived plot devices that they used in season 1. I think they hammered out these issues tho and I would rate season 3 of Trek as my favorite season of ANY trek as well as one of the best seasons of TV (any show) ever.

Re: Season 1

I'm pretty much of the same view as most in this thread. In fact, when I was picking up ENT DVDs at Costco last year, even with the reduced prices there, I only picked up S3 and S4.

Re: Season 1

I actually like the first two seasons a lot and consider the second one to be the best. It is like many other second season quite dark, it features the best Andorian-Vulcan story and unlike during the last two seasons the Enterprise is actually doing some deep space exploring. The last season, as great as it is, suffers from being a cruise around the immediate neighbourhood, the Enterprise is always close to Earth.

That's exactly how I see it as well.

Re: Season 1

Season 1 - Solid and entertainig overall, but definitely not a classic Star Trek season by any means. Tends to veer between good and average a great deal more than I would have liked. I totally understand why many would find it a bit "meh".

Season 2 - No change here. For me, pretty much on a par with S1 - see above. Feels a bit like complacency has set in on the producers/writer's parts - with no attempt made to spice things up. Very much playing it safe.

Season 3 - A definite improvement on what's come before, actually, pretty damn good. Shows a willingness to shake things up and embrace new ideas.

Season 4 - This is more like it, an excellent prequel to TOS, and a golden season of Trek for me. If only they'd come out of the gate like this.
