Pick ESSENTIAL episodes of Enterprise I was thinking earlier about how I'd go about re-introducing this show on TV now. I came to the conclusion that series now, often last half as long as Star Trek did. 13 instead of 26 episodes. Less filler, more plotlines that build and build and build. Also based on a couple of posts I'd been reading... probably a bad idea to get into the specifics of who -- they had been watching Season One, just passed half way and changed from being open-minded and impressed to very irritated. Basically saying "Don't watch Enterprise. It's not worth it." Which I felt was very harsh. I didn't understand how they could suddenly turn 360 degrees like that. I remember the likes of Oasis or Vox Sola the first time around and they didn't get under my skin. Not brilliant but not terrible. I don't know whether they plan to press on or not, but if they do, they'll obviously encounter more of the same with such a sporadic second year. This is something I imagine happened when the show was on the air, on a large scale... So then, back to the title of this thread. This show is one of my favourites but I'm having a little trouble thinking clearly about this. I love lists but I also hate lists, when there are so many things I would like to include but have to leave them off. Help me create the ultimate, perfect season of Enterprise. There are what, 98 to choose from or something like 60 complete stories? The Xindi season is like one long story, with a break for North Star. Possibly E2. Depending how you slice it. Could we condense Enterprise down to essential episodes that are everybody's favourites? Since I'm not a TV executive, I can't schedule the results but I will watch them in a marathon, sometime in September. My way of celebrating this show having been around for 10 years. I'm also hoping that if it we put together an overview, Enterprise being accessible online these days - those struggling with the airdate order, would give it a fairer chance. They can go back and fill in the blanks afterward, knowing the show is much better than a stretch that's putting them off.
