    There wasn't anything here I haven't seen before, the cave scenes dragged on too long and Archer bothered me more than he usually does in this episode.

    From here on out no more coddling. If Ent wants a passing grade from me, they need to crank out an episode that deserves it. This piece of junk filler doesn't cut it. What did this episode accomplish? Nothing. Did it do anything new? Nope. Did it stuff itself with pointless rock climbing scenes to waste time? You betcha! Was the dialogue any good? Hell no! Was the acting any good? Phlox was ok, Mayweather was awful, Archer was awful, and their lines were all awful. Why is it called "The Breach" even? No good reason. Seems to me they have a random episode naming computer program. There was just nothing here worth my time.

    I thought it was quite good. Some great scenes with Phlox, and I'm sure Mayweather fans will be happy that for the second week in a row he got much more than his typical "Yes, sir." Some more good music in this episode too.

    Decent plot, good subplot, intense dialogue, good cave disaster scene, excellent ending. This one gets a B+.

    I expect much better than this garbage from Trek. Dull doesn't even begin to describe it. I won't be starting any threads this week raising or discussing the non-existent finer points of this episode.

    I will however grudgingly give this a very generous D- rather than an F because the last 30 seconds got my attention and at least gives us a little something to address later on down the road.

    Somewhat predictable, but redeemed by the Phlox-Antaran scenes and the lovely ending. Plus Archer was good except for one blathering speech scene.

    Meh...

    Not "good", but not "bad" either. Some really interesting Phlox/Antaran scenes, as well as the ending, kept this from a C-.

    Good music, wonderful (and not rushed, for a change) ending, and good Phlox scenes. The cave plot could have used some improvement but wasn't bad.

    B- I thought it was a little too reminiscent of TNG, but it's getting better :cool:

    B-. Actually thought-provoking if you put your mind to it.
    Next week though... bring on the BASH!!!

    Neat and tidy, moved along reasonably well, not a remake, but nothing remarkable (aside from Billingsly's excellent work).

    B+, I liked when Trip said to the Denobulan, "If you don't move in 5 secondes i'm going to take my Phase Pistol and shoot you in the ass" :lol:

    Billingsley manages to save even the most predictable episode. I enjoyed this one. There was some real drama infused into the script. They finally managed to use the cave setting that we've seen 100x to their best advantage. Watching Phlox wrestle with some of his own personal demons was handled well and we got a little more insight into the doctor and his people. Not bad for 42 minutes.

    Two "A" plots jammed together, neither of which was realized. They could have dropped the cave adventure completely and made much more of Phlox's story, especially the pat conclusion it achieved.

    Billingsley made this episode watchable, at least (as always); he gets a B+. The rest of it, particularly Archer and the omnipresent ENT caves, sucked most of the life out of this one, though. I posted a more thorough review in reno floyd[/i]'s review thread.

    Billingsley's acting was top notch (hence the +), but it was a thin, predictable, episode.

    C- Last week I asked for suprises on Enterprise -- and I got one with the tribble. I meant something a little bigger. That said, The Breach just didn't do it for me. I just can't take any more cave adventures (I can just see the actors :rolleyes: when the script arrived.) It was not horrible, and the B story was better than last week, but I expect more this late in season 2.

    Same here, but I gave it an A+ -- maybe it was the Tribble scene! ;)

    I'm waiting for someone to bitch that it somehow violated continuity -- but there is no way The Trouble with Tribbles constituted a first contact! :lol: Hoshi's look was priceless.

    But the A+ is mostly for John Billingsley's performance. Oh, and the phaser in the ass as well! ;)

    Cheers!
