|So long to bad rubbish.
February 3, 2005
According to the SciFi Network, "Enterprise"
has indeed been canceled. I'm sure my girlish squeals were heard
for miles when I learned this. I, like many others, used to like Star
Trek long ago - and tried, very hard, to watch the series after Next
Generation. I lost interest pretty early on, though. I saw one episode
of Voyager (one too damn many) but, since I liked Bakula in Quantum
Leap, I gave Enterprise a couple extra chances to woo me.
They bypassed the idea of Star Trek: Excelsior for that?
But like a moron, every time someone mentions "new Star Trek," a little
bit of hope bubbles up in me. But what I don't get are the people who
complained about how much they hated Voyager and Enterprise, but watched
every damn episode - or the people who defend Enterprise by
saying, "Yes, the first three seasons were awful, but the fourth season
was great so they should give it another chance." Why on earth would
you tolerate three seasons of utter fecal matter? Why even one? And,
frankly, if it took four seasons for the show to be watchable, it
probably should have been dumped right at the start.
Doesn't matter now, I guess. I'm sure Berman is busy deciding which
alien race to make a sex symbol next. Frankly, he should just put a
tribble in a bikini. It'll tap the furry audience and give Rush Limbaugh something new to bitch about so he can
feel relevant still. -R
