Star Trek: Enterprise Rewatch: “The Catwalk”

Okay, it’s not really that great an episode, but I enjoyed myself while watching it, and it was so much better than the previous week’s (and indeed, most of the recent ones). The Star Trek: Enterprise Rewatch was probably overly generous, but dammit enjoyed, “The Catwalk.”

An excerpt:

It’s funny, I was watching this episode and really grooving on it, but when I wrote it up, I was having a hard time remembering why I liked it so much. I think part of it is how dreadful “Precious Cargo” was than anything, but also the script and direction were brisk and top-notch. I also have to admit that the episode sold me when Mayweather mentioned the need for a latrine in the catwalk. Trek’s aversion to even acknowledging that bathrooms exist is often fodder for humor (justifiably so), so this was a welcome reminder of one of the many difficulties of cramming everyone into an access walkway for a week.
