Best Season 4 episodes

What say you? Which episodes of Season 4 were the most memorable for you? Which ones made you laugh, or cheer, or tear up, or ponder (in a good way) long after the show was over? Which would you recommend to others to watch?

I'll start off with my favorite--of the entire series, in fact: "Observer Effect." For me, this episode had it all-- layered, thoughtful writing, beautiful performances by all the actors, dynamic directing, and evocative music. No matter how many times I watch it, I still love it.

The Vulcan arc: Great setup for the Vulcan renaissance. Good to see 2nd officer Tucker in The Big Chair and doing a bang up job in his decisions. Really made me wish he had been given more opportunities to demonstrate his capabilities throughout the series.

Observer Effect: I agree that this tearjerker was beautifully written, acted and directed. And this is one of the episodes that gives us the Archer I wish we had all along.

Andorian arc: How could anyone not love More! Shran and a great story setup for the Romulan was that we never got?

IaMD 1/2: Totally fun! I was taken completely by (delighted) surprise.

Demons/Terra Prime: Heartbreaking ending (and foreshadowing of the birth of Spock) gives us the true Valentine to the fans and the better nod to the franchise.

#1. Terra Prime - as much as the ending depresses me, I honestly loved every second of this one. Especially the bittersweet ending

#2. Home
- I already explained my reasons for loving this ep so much in countless other threads.

Re: Best Season 4 episodes

Home : i liked the part on vulcan. Joanna Cassidy was great as T'Les. good acting between trinneer, blalock and Cassidy.

the Vulcan arc : the vulcans became the vulcans we know (or the genesis of the vulcans we know).

in the mirror darkly 1&2
: very funny and to see the opposite of the character we know was great. and the emperess Sato, i applause

demons/terra prime : for exactely the same reasons that jinx enumerated.

Re: Best Season 4 episodes

After "Home" I'd list the Klingon forehead arc, the Vulcan arc and then the Soong/Augment one.

It has been 4 years since I last saw it so I'm very rusty on this subject, but I loved Cold Station 12. It was great how the torture scene ended up torturing Soong as much as Dr Lucas.

Re: Best Season 4 episodes

Sorry my cat jumped on the keyboard! As I was saying, I have to choose which episodes were the best? Well then I vote EVERY episode! inclueding DAEDALUS. I know a lot of fans say this was the weakest episode next to TATV, but I enjoyed it, PLUS we get a foreshadowing of things to come when we FINALLY get to see a red shirt ( or RED STRIP as was the case ) get killed by a (sort-of ) energy being. Which we all know will happen to COUNTLESS red shirts in the FUTURE. Oh and TATV was the ONLY real weak spot in the entire season.

Observer Effect. I loved, loved,loved Archer in this one. My husband who was a casual watcher of ENT said "Now that is like the Trek I remember". The only down side was Hoshi's back story; it seemed almost out of the blue, and a little inconsistent with the twitchy nervous character of season 1.

Re: Best Season 4 episodes

Anyone else notice the eerie, creepy and VERY subtle background music when the Organians are inside Trip and Hoshi in decon? You have to turn up the volume on your TV to really hear it, but it's very effective and ominous sounding incidental music.
