SIMBOB: "For me the whole space station thing sounded like the dumbest thing I could imagine when it was first coming on. Stripping Star Trek of the whole trekking part sounded utterly pointless, and from the episodes I caught it was about as bad as I imagined it would be."
Neither of those sentences, to me, imply you actually gave the show a chance. You went in expecting/wanting to hate it; not many things can change around such views. Have you seen the episodes I listed?
