I never watched Discovery, but I am currently struggling to watch Enterprise. I watched some of the episodes when I was in highschool, so for nostalgia reasons I wanted to see the entire series now since it is only 4 seasons. I grew up with Voyager and also watched TNG after Voyager and few episodes of TOS, and this Enterprise is such a massive letdown compared to all of that.
I just don't care about any of the characters, they have no depth, there is too much focus on Archer being some kind of action hero, it is very similar to TNG movies where they focused too much on Picard action. Trip is supposed to be some kind of engineer and third highest rank, but always gets in some trouble like he is an ensign or something. T'Pol actress did such a terrible job, she has one facial expression the whole time and usually just looks confused. Her whole character is just terrible, like every male crew member except Mayweather (or is it Mayflower, you see I don't know) had some weird sexual scene with her; being tied up, having a wet dream or those weird decontamination and massage scenes, it is uncomfortable to watch. And now in season three for no good reason she changes her outfit in every scene, it is so confusing. Also that intro song in season three got even more annoying.
Mayflower is also such a poor character, they made him too childish. At least Wesley was a prodigy and did some science stuff and was hanginf around Data and Geordi, but Mayweather is just doing nothing and he has the worst dialogue lines. About Hoshi all I know she is easy and Reed likes pineapples and has disagreement with parents, they are all just boring characters. The dog Porthos serves no purpose, at least Spot was there for Data to study emotional bonding and stuff.
My favorite character so far after 3 seasons is the blue guy with antennas, Shran. He has some Clint Eastwood vibe about him, and has some pride and honor, like he is some kind of Klingon actually. Doctor is OK too.
IMO all these prequel series shouldn't even exist, all they do is undermine the importance of the previous crews who were supposed to be some kind of pioneers. Now that whole concept is thrown out.
Enterprise used to be the weakest of the franchise although I give them props for season 3 and 4 those seasons were great imo but it was too little too late for the show. Although my advice would be watch some episodes of Discovery and then return to Enterprise. Discovery makes Enterprise look like a masterpiece in comparisson.
I highly recommend Deep Space Nine though if you haven't seen it yet. TNG is my favorite because that's the one i grew up with but without a doubt DS9 was the highpoint of Star Trek and the best the franchise has to offer.
He was pretty decent as Weyoun in Deep Space 9 as well. And his Brunt wasn't bad either.
By "he" you of course mean Jeffry Combs, the actor who played all those characters. Right?
Jeffrey Combs played Brunt and Weyoun in DS9. In Enterprise he was Shran.
Ah, I see. Maybe I didn't noticed Xindi slips that much when I watched the series.
Anyway, I wonder what your final impressions will be after season 4, when Temporal War arc is concluded and Vulkans reach the turning point in becoming more enlitened.
Be prepared for the series finale... It's the worst in the franchise and a slap in your face :)
