Enterprise and Shark

Over the past few months, I have been re-watching episodes from the first and second seasons of Star Trek Enterprise. I had forgotten how good of a show it was. But I remember the third and fourth seasons. They were not as enjoyable. This is unusual for a Star Trek series; usually the shows are a little shaky on their feet the first few years, then they grow stronger toward the end. But not Enterprise; I think it was excellent at the beginning and grew tiresome at the end.

The same is true for Shark, a new show on CBS that started last fall. It began as a courtroom drama. Now, it is more action-adventure with lawyers than drama. But I still watch it, hoping for some drama, because I like the main character’s wit.
