Sci-Fi and Country Music

 Himself and I have been watching Enterprise on Netflix. I didn't watch the show when it aired from 2001 to 2005. I just couldn't get into it. And watching it on Netflix, I almost gave up on it.

At first, I thought it might have been Scott Bakula as Captain Archer. I liked him in Quantum Leap. I couldn't put my finger on why I didn't like this Star Trek. It hit me while waiting for the theme song and opening credits to finish.

All the other Star Trek shows have majestic or heroic theme songs. Not Enterprise. It has a country western/inspirational type theme song with lyrics and singing. Just so wrong! Like a musical. I'm not a big fan of musicals. Sci-fi and country western/inspirational music shouldn't be paired together. Especially when the theme songs turns into an earworm.
