I’m working through Season 3 of Enterprise and it’s excellent stuff, although Archer’s character has changed into a somewhat deranged revenge junkie, which is at odds with the whole peaceful explorer thing in the first two seasons. It’s good TV, though. Star Trek Discovery is superb, though not really Star Trek. Thoroughly gripping stuff.
For what it’s worth, here are my Top 5 TV shows purely for entertainment value (I mean, The Wire is terrific but it’s not a laugh-a-minute terrific). I got a kick out of them because of the twists, the situations, the quotes and just looked forward to another episode. I am also keeping them to 42 minute American TV shows. Because if you get on to British sitcoms, we’ll be here a while. Some absolute gold in that genre. And I can’t choose a single series of Star Trek because they’re all great in their own way. That episode of TNG when Picard played the flute. The episode of Voyager where they were stuck in orbit for 30 minutes but 30 generations passed on the planet surface. The Borg. The Xindi. And in a Discovery spoiler, Spock, as a bit of a dick, is truly joyous.
Alias (I was convinced the Rambaldi stuff was going to rear its head in Lost, but al(I)as, oh so many alases)
Angel (so much better than Buffy).
In fact, my wife and I are rewatching Angel (thanks Amazon Prime) and it’s really good. I will go back and watch the others, too.
