    It's January already? I can't even remember the football season.

    Shit, I've been smoking to much pot. I gotta straighten up.

    Did you know that in Happy Days, Fonzie actually jumps a shark, and that's where the expression comes from?

    Oh, my god. That was Henry Winkler giving first aid to the Xindi Aquatic helmsman. Slick cameo!

    For me the whole leather-jacket-in-the-sea was far worse than the actual shark-jumping feat.

    Agreed - I liked the earlier eps before the Fonz went crazy and started wearing his leather jacket all the time. In the early episodes he wore a smarter light cotton jacket in the summer

    What I don't get is why they ended the episode with Archer's gazelle speech! Enough is enough!!!

    I chose "Average", and that's being kind.

    To use "Spock's Brain" as the event mentioned in The Original Series and not even have a character's brain removed is simply inexcusable, not to mention making that only one thread of a convoluted and tangled plot.

    The scene where we first see the ship is grand enough, reminiscent of TMP's reveal of the Enterprise. However, seeing men on the hull putting the final plating on with hammers and wood finishing nails was a little off-putting.

    Beyond that, the visuals were good, when I saw them the first time in My Mother, The Car.

    I would say, overall, my investment in CBS All Access was worth it, seeing the pilot being at the same level of euphoria when I saw the first episode of "Home Improvement".

    My suggestion to improve the series, for one, would be to get rid of the viewscreen effect of a curtain parting to the 20th Century Fox fanfare each time the Captain wants to see what's out there, and maybe we'll have a series.

    I didn't realize that happened so early in the show, I thought it was towards the end after Ron Howard left.
    Lieutenant, do the thing.
