Really enjoyed it. Some things could/should've been better, but it was definitely heading in the right direction when the twerps, err powers that be cancelled it.

Somewhere between "I like" and "pretty much okay"

I really liked the show. It's my favorite next to TNG. I definately think it was cancelled to early, regardless of what anybody else thinks. TOS was cancelled after only three seasons. Fourty years later they still air those episodes on tv. I think both shows are similar in the aspect that they weren't appreciated during their time.

Watching Enterprise is how i actually developed a more mature aesthetic to Star Trek. Yeah, i remember watching Voyager as a kid with my dad, but when Enterprise came out i could actually better understand and appreciate the show.

Then i got into the original series and i was like, "squee!". But i will always have a soft spot for Enterprise and its crew.

I got tired of the whole "Xindi Saga". Other than that, I enjoyed Enterprise.

Go figure - for me that whole "Xindi Saga" was the best thing the show ever did. Season 3 - on the whole, at least: there were a few, largely stand-alone, episodes that were a bit ropey - was such a delight that it totally removed my misgivings about the first two seasons which I thought were very uneven.

I really enjoyed Enterprise, and the cancellation came as a very unpleasant surprise, simply because I felt the last two seasons of the show were so, so much better than the first two had been. Just as the show was finding its feet and really beginning to kick some arse, the carpet was ripped out from under it. Bloody UPN!

Personally - and respect to those who feel differently, this is just my opinion - I think the accusations that Enterprise gleefully disregarded established canon are massively misguided. Despite getting several "canon-fiends" to explain the breaches of canon the series committed during its run, I've yet to hear a single compelling argument for any serious breach of established canon in the show. But then again, I'm a lot more tolerant of that sort of thing, since the other shows have often, occasionally massively, disregarded their own established canon many times over...

The only significant continuity change that comes to my mind is Romulan cloaking technology in the 22nd century in "Minefield", which was corrected in the 4th season (the drone ship had no cloak).
Anything else like "Akirprise" or "evil Vulcans" is just plain BS.

I did not like the show.
They ignored a lot of canon. In order from greatest to least problem.

1. No previous Enterprise
2. Previous NX-01 was named Dauntless.
3. The Akiraprise it's self was a huge problem for me.
4. Time War was a reallly bad idea for the low tech trek
5. Technology was too high for the time period.
6. Emotional Vulcans was a big problem, It was poorly introduced and haphazardly corrected.
7. The characters were 2 Dimensional lacking depth.
8. Introduced tOO many 24th centruy plot devices
9. The show didn't follow the true holocaust of the post War War III period that Q spoke of.
10. The general stories of this show were Trek in nature, They shouldn't have been. This was a real opportunity to show a different kind of Trek.

ENT was the first Trek series that I just didn't really care for and stopped watching after awhile. There were few things I liked about it, and I pretty much shared Saquist's sentiments about the things I didn't like.

In the years since its end, however, I've softened my disdain of the series to a mild indifference. I don't hate the series as I did when it was originally on and I do accept it as part of continuity (albeit apocryphally). I think there were just a lot of missed opportunities and creative missteps for this show and they began before the first second of footage was filmed, IMO...
Free your mind, and the rest will follow.
