Oh, cool. Do you have a favorite Dr. Who?
I think my favorite is Tom Baker. I still think he was probably one of
the best. Then again, that's the series I watched most as a kid and
there were some really good shows during that series. I didn't like
the older DR. Who shows from the 60's because they were in black and
white, and while the shows themselves were good I didn't like anything
that wasn't in color. Especially, when i started losing my eye sight
as it made it harder to see.
As for Star Trek you are right. I'm sure they'd like to make a new
series or whatever, but Enterprise was a flop. I was a huge Star Trek
fan for years, but I just couldn't get into Enterprise that much. It
was ok, but it wasn't as good as Next Gen or Voyager wich were my
favorites. For one thing I wanted to see what happens after TNG, DS9,
and Voyager, and instead they decided to go back to before the classic
series and rewrite history. That sucked. On top of it the plot holes,
continuity, etc just killed it for me.
