I think Trip's character was what made it gel for me. I could relate to Trip, without him I'm not sure that show would have worked at all. Season 2 and especially 3 just really suffered from bad writing and storytelling, like they were trying WAY too hard to find a fan base of their own. I think they went overboard with the in-your-face "Hey look how edgy we are 'cuz T'pol's a hottie, but please take us seriously" stuff, too. Nothing against Jolene Blalock, I think she did a pretty good job with what they gave her, but again, the writers failed, just way too lazy in their storytelling.
