I have been watching Enterprise since it premiered on HDNET (was that last year or the year before?). Never watched it on UPN.
I'll be honest. None of the sequel Treks ever matched the original series for me. Next Generation drove me nuts because no one could ever make a freakin' decision. Deep Space Nine was maddening since they couldn't go anywhere. Voyager at least had a captain with balls
, but just seemed to get bogged down in its story line.
Enterprise is closest to the original. Scott Bakula is not very good. But I think the acting of some of the others, particularly T'Pol and the Doctor carry the show at times. Some of the episodes are actually pretty good with original themes and plot lines.
Anyways, just got the Original series on HD-DVD. I watched the first episode last night "The Man Trap." Not one of my favorites, but I have to say better than most of the Enterprise episodes I have watched.
