Enterprise confusion

I am vexed. I am dripping vexiness from my pores as I type. I don't know what to do about Enterprise.

You see, angriest has been posting up groupings of three great episodes of each season of each Star Trek franchise. It's been a good read. I've been reminded of stories I had quite forgotten about that I enjoyed. He's even made me curious to see at least six episodes from the almost two seasons of Voyager I didn't watch.

I like to make up my own mind on things. And by the end of the first season of Enterprise, I knew I couldn't bear to watch any more. It was too painfully produced. Too many missed opportunites for drama, exploration of ideas... It was a mess. I had given it a year and it was more painful for me to watch than Voyager, which at least had some good episodes built around the Doctor and Seven of Nine.

So when it came to Enterprise, I could say to people that I watched the first season and decided not to watch any more. Then the last season came along. It had a new team, and even people who had detested it were checking out the season and raving about it. These were people who screamed their hatred of the first four seasons from the rooftops. I got curious, but never got around to seeing it.

Grant's post has made me curious. He hasn't seen much of the series either but he's sparked my interest and I'm now fighting my completeist urge. Part of me wants to go back and watch the other three seasons I missed as well. Part of me is even considering the idea of rewatching season one (I know, I'm sick).

For the record, and so you know what sort of a Trek fan I will be buying all three seasons of the original series, seasons 1 - 4 of Next Gen, all of DS9, and the first 8 Star Trek films.

But what shall I do about Enterprise? Why, I'll ask all of you!
