“So I leap from show to show . . .”

So last weekend, I gave the show Enterprise a go on DVD. It’s okay. Kinda cool to see a series serving as a prequel to every single Star Trek ever, but it’s missing that Je Ne Sais Battlestar element. (For the uniniated, the Space Shuttle program had a test ship called “Enterprise” named after . . . yup.)


Lots of explanations of how the phasers work and lines like “Looks like you watched too many science fiction movies.” Cue huge clapping and laughter and guffawing from the peanut gallery.


Great having Scott Bakula as the captain. Stephe’s boy James Cromwell is the guy who invented Warp Drive. Plus a few NASA references for the space program geeks and the Vulcan chick is unbelievably hot.


Special effects are pretty bad . . . Battlestar kicks other shows asses because it’s shot so well, the effects are fantastic, the cast is perfect and the episodes play like movies and it’s aired on the 24 off season. Enterprise didn’t really take off, it was just okay.


Plus why does every single lunchroom scene owe a dollar to James Cameron for Aliens? I swear if I see another show or movie with humans eating with aliens or robots joking about how funny it is that they’re so different . . . most of the time, I was wishing I was watching Quantum Leap.
