Who is watching this still? I'm liking the new serious side to the show

Me, they have gone in to an excellent Trek style show now and dropped a lot of the typical Seth McFarlane style of humour.

I always knew that Adrienne Palicki, Scott Grimes and Penny Johnson-Jerald were good actors, but I'm really impressed by Seth McFarlane. Particularly in season 2, I've found myself really believing in his character.

I particularly like the episodes Identity parts 1 and 2. They turned Isaac, a character who has always seemed to be there to provide something for the other characters to take the mickey out of, into a serious threat.

The next part of this involves discussion of the plot, hence spoiler tags.
Spoiler: 

I like the way that episode 1 appears to be a throwaway episode for a little light relief, then, at the end, the Kalon are revealed as cold-blooded killers who killed every biological being on their planet, and are looking to do the same to other planets, and I like the way the episode flips from being a light, fluffy episode into something very serious. I also like the way that the 2nd part doesn't go too far down the big reset route (which Doctor Who has tended to do, with the universe being put into danger and the Doctor doing one thing that saves it). The Orville does, to some extent, but even once the crew is saved, they still have to defeat the Kalons

I hope they still keep some of the Humour for me it's what made the show. I like star trek but I like the funny side as well

***** POSSIBLE SPOILERS *******





Anyone else think they blew the whole budget on the Kaylon attack episodes? Now all we seem to get are on-board dramas. Women falling in love with robots, men falling in love with holographic projections....although I did enjoy the cigarette story-line.

It's possible to combine humour, action and even horror. Whether you like them or not, all of Joss Whedon's shows have done that.

Just caught up on a bunch of episodes while on my holiday flights, loving Season 2.

Re: The Orville
 
Now season 2 has ended I found the last one a bit disappointing. Yeah it wrapped up the timeline but I was kind of hoping for something a bit more. As much as I hope for a season 3 and I do love the show even better than startrek to some degree.

But I don't think I would miss the show if they didn't do a season 3 and the last episode of season 2 kind of wrapped the show up "for me anyway" it at least appeared to have closure in the event season 3 never came about?

Season 2 ratings have been very consistent and solid so you can guarantee there will be a third season.

I knew I had seen it somewhere before xmas. I was trying to tell a friend a couple of weeks ago that it had been renewed for a third season and when he asked me for proof I couldn't flipping find it.
