I gave this one an A. Good moral dilema, a fascinating scifi concept and it held my interest.
I nearly stopped watching the series in December. The February episodes were decent so I stayed on for a while. I must say that tonights has to be my favorite episode of series. Possibly my favorite episode since Deep Space Nine. I gave it an A.
Really great episode. I never would have thought it would end this way. Pretty great drama.
Long winded speech at the end but great.
It's the best episode of ENT yet.
I saw the suicide coming, but the real attention paid to the consequences was riveting.
I give it an A.
Tonights episode had some of a DS9 feel to it, it kept my interest, and it didn't seem like was some type of running gag. This could be one of the best episodes of the series. Now I'll just have to wait and see how next weeks episode'll turn out. Yeah Borg!
Best stuff I've seen thus far.
This was a real story, with real consequences.
It's about time.
If the plot itself hadn't been so predictable, I might have given it a higher grade. A slightly different take on TNG's "The Outcast," with some fine acting from Trinneer and Bakula. The last scene between the two is quite possibly the best dramatic moment in the series. However, it didn't carry as much weight as it could have because of Archer's blatant hypocrisy. Still, I have to wonder if he didn't know he could be addressing the speech to himself, the way he seemed all introspective while looking out the window. The line earlier where he tells trip even he doesn't know what he would have done may have been an indicator of this.
My verdict: Pretty solid overall, but brought down by the predictability and simple dumbness of the middle part. This episode deserved to be written better than it was.
A+. Great performances all around. Terrific story with no easy answers. The best episode of Enterprise yet and from B&B no less! Finally, this is Star Trek.
A+, one of Enterprise best episode
(Plus a full letter grade for showing Porthos again after so long.)
Best Enterprise yet, great drama, great episdoe.
Be interesting to see if the after effects of this episode are shown in the rest of the season/next season.
Most specificaly the Trip/Archer friendship. It may have taken a hit in this episode.
It was going so well. I loved everything about the episode (even though it seemed a lot like a certain TNG episode with a no-gendered race). It had an "A" until Archer's speech. Trip deserved a much harsher punishment. I understand Archer was in shock but he could have at least yelled.
Gave it an A.
Now, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout.
Everyone seems to be giving it high marks. Next week's "Regeneration"... Wonder how that Grading thread is gonna turn out.
The best episode of Enterprise? It may well be, but regardless it's up with the best. The ending (at least for me) was actually a curveball, and it didn't feel rushed (second week in a row). And it didn't turn into a "Night in Sickbay" fiasco like some predicted. In fact it didn't even come close.
Enterprise is really on a roll, IMO, so even if next week's "Regeneration" is a horrible mess of an episode (I'm reserving judgment until I see it), I will forgive it in an instant...
Really? I didn't see it coming at all!! I think this was the best non-action epidsode of ENT yet.... I still like Dead Stop and Future Tense for my favorite overall, but this is definitely in the top 5.
I gave this epidsode a B+ only because it did get a little slow in the middle at some points. Great ep though!!
Blown away by this episode. I disagree with the comments regarding its predictability. Its about time Enterprise begins to make up for some of the previous episodes. If this is the shape of things to come Enterprise may be one of the most successful Sci Fi series since TNG! A+!!
A. Great ending and some decent acting from Bakula.
