I have known for about a week or so about the fate of Star Trek Enterprise. Yea, it is canceled. After last season, I can see why. Personally I liked the show for the first two seasons. The third season was a long story arc, and it was tiring. It was about a Temporal Cold War, were sets of races that were trying to play one another against each other to a common benefit for a time traveling race. I stuck with it, but I wasn’t interested in the story any longer when it came to the last stretch of the season.
Now, This 4th season started off better, I was getting into it again, but alas it is now officially gone. Gone the way of Firefly (Thanks Fox).
Speaking of Firefly, I had heard a lot of rumbling about how this show was good and cut before it’s prime. I finally picked up the _Entire Series_ on DVD this past Christmas, and I have to say I really feel like I was missing out.
Firefly, if you don’t already know, is a mix between a Western and Sci-fi. There are no aliens, weapons are more conventional than futuristic, and there is space travel. The characters are an interesting mix, and play off of each other, and is very well written. I wish to thank Fox for having the foresight to cancel it early so as to not ruin my productivity (end sarcasm). In all fairness, there is a Firefly movie, Serenity, coming out later this year.
The new Battlestar Galactica… well… Lets make that another post.
