Re: ENT S4: Fourth Season Recap

So I finally finished watching every episode of every Trek and I felt the need to talk about it. Seems like here's a good place as any.

So yeah, ending my long journey on the Enterprise finale is pretty depressing, but hey, at least there's a new show now to look forward to! (I know better than to get my hopes up too high.) I enjoyed the Xindi arc a lot, but it seemed out of place on a Stark Trek prequel show. Season 4 was the first time I felt like I was watching real Trek, and of course it gets cancelled. Oh well. It still wasn't that great of a series, but it had its moments.

It took me several years to get through this, taking breaks and watching other shows, but I finally did it. And I read many of the reviews, though I mostly skimmed through Voyager and Enterprise reviews since they seemed awfully negative and you appeared to just not like the shows (which I totally understand). Still read most of the comments, though I rarely said much myself.

Since I have a fascination with ranks and lists, I figured I'd make one of my own. So here we go, from favorite series to least favorite series:

Deep Space 9 (best reoccurring characters, most interesting storylines, SO many good characters, did I mention the characters?)
The Next Generation (best captain (yeah, I said it!), feels the most like what Trek should be.)
The Original Series (best crew (Spock, McCoy, Scotty, you can't beat 'em!), most 'charm')
Voyager (best first season, The Doctor)
The Animated Series (it was certainly... interesting! Trippy visuals, entertainingly bad animation)
Enterprise (it had Porthos)

I didn't hate any of the shows, and I'm glad I watched them all, but if I weren't such a completionist, I probably would have given up on Enterprise during season two, though interestingly, I also would have most likely given up during Deep Space 9 season two, and that ended up my favorite. That show definitely grew the most, and Voyager the least (it was consistently mediocre...so...yay?)

Thanks Jammer for all the reviews and giving us nerds a place to congregate. I'm hoping Battlestar Galactica gets put back on Netflix since it sounds like a show I'd like, but if not, I'm tempted to buy the series. If I do, then I'll certainly be back for the reviews. The original BG series is on there... I plan on watching that before the reboot. Gotta fill that Sci-FI void I now have.

And of course, I expect full lengthy reviews of the new show (OK, maybe not), assuming it doesn't keep getting delayed and actually gets made! Not that I'll be watching it on CBS access, but I'll probably get the blu-rays when they come out.

So yeah, it's been a long ride (I'd quote the Enterprise theme if I didn't hate it), and it wouldn't have been the same without this site and all the interesting characters here. Just felt the need to say all that.

Re: ENT S1: Unexpected

I wonder if a female character had nipples growing on their arm, would they be allowed to show that on TV?

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Robert, I 100% agree with all of your negative points. Everything I hear about the show makes me uneasy too. I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. I'm hoping it does terribly on CBS access so it comes out on Netflix. I've been watching every series on Netflix (currently on Voyager) and it wouldn't feel right watching Trek any other way!

I'm actually surprised that it's not taking place in the new movies timeline. You would think they would want to keep their shows and movies together. Keeping it in the Prime universe is probably the only thing I've heard about this show that I'm fully happy about. (I actually like the new movies, but they just don't feel like Star Trek.)
