Catching up on Enterprise

I have recently been using Netflix to catch up on old Star Trek Enterprise episodes. I have never sat down and watched Enterprise properly before now; it did not air on terrestrial tv like other Trek series, so I did not know it as well as TNG or DS9. Now I have Netflix, though, I decided to put that right: for the last two or three weeks, I've watched an episode or two every day, either in the morning before our PA gets here, or last thing at night. I'm currently halfway through the third season, and the crew are well into Xindi space.

To be honest, though, I think I'm beginning to see why Enterprise didn't do as well as Trek incarnations. The xindi story ark is starting to get dull. They seem to have been heading for a red giant for a few episodes, and never getting there. Watching it, I don't feel as compelled by it as I did when I used to watch TNG orDS9. The stories don't really draw me in, and I can't relate to any of the characters. For me, Captain Archer simply does not have the gravitas of Picard or Sisco. Frankly it just feels like it's written by someone who has simply decided to throw together elements they have seen in other shows, without creating anything new. The only vaguely interesting character is Dr. Phlox; none of the others have anything which makes them stand out. Of course I'll continue to watch, but I think I'm beginning to see why Enterprise didn't make it past it's fifth season.
