Loved both episodes. Can you imagine what they would've done had their 4th season budget not been slashed?
The ending was a bit disappointing...I was hoping we could see the Defiant blow up...But I agree with Kevin (and the thought occurred to me to) - the crew's gonna be too busy killing itself off to be able to run & protect the ship. Probably defeated pretty easily.
But I loved the props, uniforms, sets, and even the new theme & cinamatics! The StarTrek.com site says the show was inspired by an idea to have Shatner appear...it would've been cool to see him popping up in his space suit like he was phasing between his universe and the mirror - a'la "The Tholian Web"!
I have to throw in SOME criticism - I can get over the Gorn not looklike like a Gorn, but he was WAY too fast! Kirk's advatage was that the Gorn was as slow as molasses (whatever that means)! This Gorn was quick, like Species 8472.
I had another criticism, but I can't remember it, and it was probably outshined by the rest of the episode.
It's a darn shame that Enterprise is going away. I Liked it. I know not everyone did/does. This season has been kick butt, though. I would've like to see it get through another 3 seasons.
Oh - I DO have another criticism - the local BJ's (warehouse store) was selling the TOS seasonfor only 80 bucks each! First, it was the first season - I scoffed it up quick. Then I saw the second! I've been watching the first 2 seasons over the past few months! Then third came in but I didn't have the money. So I went to the store's ATM. It was down! No problem - I'll be sure to have the $$$ when I come back. So I come back...It's gone! They're all gone! TOS 1, 2, 3...even the Voyager DVD's....Where's they go! #$@%!! So I don't have season 3. My criticism is tha I can't watch season 3. Ok, it has nothing to do with "In a Mirror, Darly", but I'm still ticked off!
BTW - Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've been here - let me wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, Valine's Day, Easter, Passover, and anything else I missed since last fall! I usually kept an eye on this board from work. Last fall, my work must've put the net nanny on this place, and now it's filtered. Either that, or someone on this board added some no-no words to the description (like "chat"). In any event, I can't access the board anymore. This happened once or twice before, but it never lasted more than a couple days. Well, we're pushing 1/2 year so far this time .
I'm still hopeful that I'll have access again someday... I can't do too much from home, which is why I haven't been on the board at all over the last few months. My browser's full of hijackers, and my system's falling apart at the seams whenever I log on to the Internet.
But after watching this episode, I knew I had to log on and share some of my thoughts with the old gang!
Miss you guys/gals!
