I watched it on and off during first run, but didn't really think much of it until I gave it a rewatch a few years ago, and found that I actually liked it. Oh, it doesn't top DS9, TOS, or TNG, in my opinion, but it's better than I thought it was. When you watch it, you can see there's so much potential there, for a spectacular show, but it never really bloomed like I hoped it would. Still, it's definitely decent, and I think you'll find season 3 to be pretty good. Personally, my favorite episode is "Carbon Creek," which is from season 2, followed by "Similitude." "Trip" Tucker quickly became a favorite character of mine, though I am forever endeared to Dr. Phlox, due in no small part to the excellent work of John Billingsley, who imbued Phlox with a real pathos, and gave us a nice view of humanity from an unfamiliar lens.
