I admit I thought ENT sucked when I saw it the first time, especially the overacting captain who could not sit still. But as with all stuff in life, you have to get acquainted to it and after some episodes you know the characters better, you stumble over a great episode and at once you are a big ENT nerd

Hmmm, an over-acting captain who can't sit still. Something about that sounds familiar...

I always felt it a shame that so many more couldn't enjoy Enterprise for what it was on it's own merits. Yes, there were canon violations, and yes there was some hokey stuff in there plot-wise, too. But, overall, Enterprise engaged me far beyond DS9 or Voyager. I was a moderate TNG fan, and found some interesting material there, but it was Enterprise that caught my imagination. TOS (watching some now) had it's niche and charm, and I feel ENT picked up as close as it could, given we were 30+ years later in human history and 100 (give or take) years earlier in trek history. A challenge for any writer (though I can't excuse seasons 1 and 2 - they did show complete trek fatigue on the part of the writing staff and lots of rehash.) Of all the incarnations - certainly the CGI/EFX of Enterprise also made for an improved visual experience from the ho-drum sets we'd been seeing for 13-14 years. A nice change. It may have captured more mindset if at least some of the ideas of later seasons made it earlier in the series run.

The hamming it up over actin of Bakula was hard to bear but was suddenly tollerable in the presense of good plots and writing. He didn't have to rely on his gut actors instinct in the middle of a line.
