namatad: swahnhennessy: As others have noted, BSG started to go bad before the end of season 2. It took some time building up to the boring mess it became, which makes me wonder if some people ever noticed. I just don't get how people defend that show's latter half unless they just let themselves be led into crap and couldn't tell the difference. One thing BSG did was make me wary of TV series. I've never been one to watch much of them, but after that experience I vowed never to start another that wasn't completely wrapped up. I'm not going to get invested in another series only to have it turn stupid, leaving me with a sense of duty to finish it and see where it ends up. As good as that first season of BSG was, it wasn't worth sitting through most of the rest of it. dont get me started on the number of good SF series which were canceled once they got going. (looking at you fox)

I know exactly what you're talking about.

Following a decent if uneven and abbreviated first season that only survived cancellation due to a massive outcry from fans, season two of "Firefly" rapidly became the stuff of sci-fi legend. Thanks to excellent writing, a creative story arc and a unique method of incorporating suggestions from die-hard "Browncoat" fans, it appeared that "Firefly" was destined for unlimited greatness.

Unfortunately, the incorporation in season three of "PatRebs," a far-right Alliance faction, led to boycotts due to the striking resemblances between PatRebs and today's Tea Party movement. Although the death of series creator Joss Whedon remains unsolved, suspicions about involvement by certain Tea Party members nevertheless remain.

Inevitably, season three was probably cursed from its outset. Although the first four episodes written by Whedon's brother Jed received wide acclaim, Fox abruptly fired him only to be replaced by Michael "I love high explosives" Bay...

WippitGuud: Dingleberry Dickwad:
Eh, I thought the premise was ok, but yeah, the writing was all over the place. The characters jumped around all over the place for a while, and like you said, most of the characters other than EMH and Seven were pretty bland. That said EMH and Seven centric episodes were done very well and were about the only characters that showed any kind of growth throughout the series.

The best episodes had the ECH.

And then there was that one episode where the Doctor was inside of Seven, and you have to wonder just what he put inside of Seven while he was inside of Seven.

PacificaFitz: FuryOfFirestorm: PacificaFitz: t3knomanser: boogerwolf: thought the writing and fx were above average

9/10. You threw subtlety out the window and went full on Troll. The misspellings and the "VOY Borgs > TNG Borgs" statement were genius. You would have earned you a 10/10 is if you said that Chakotay was the best character in the ST series.

I swear I'm not trolling, Voyager was and still is my favorite series in the Star Trek universe.  I am NOT TROLLING.

Second time in as many days I was accused of trolling when it was the furthest thing from my mind....

You may not be trolling us, but your taste in SciFi is certainly trolling you, man.

Supernatural season 7 was a big Dick joke (literally) but season 8 has been very redeeming. It's one of my favorite shows on TV right now.

HempHead: angrymacface: This smells like  The English Major's work. Voyager and Enterprise were both excellent* shows.

*eventually sometimes

Enterprise sucked when they decided to incorporate 9/11 into the story line and re-write Federation history.

I always hoped that Enterprise would do something truly radical, and actually turn into the evil Mirror Mirror universe. It would have made the countless "Will the Federation survive this latest threat?" episodes much more exciting when suddenly, no, it doesn't survive! All hell breaks loose, and we are left with something never before expected in a Trek show.

I wouldn't say it sucked at Sci-Fi, but I missed Forrester and Frank. The segue pieces became tiresome.
