Re: The Orville

I've watched the trailer three times now, just seems really funny to me.

Very much like Galaxy Quest, which I loved.

Re: The Orville

Yes having gone from looking at the title it looks pretty good to me.

Re: The Orville

Just watched the first episode, and it really good, I loved it.

It is a bit of a spoof of Star Trek, it is a bit of a comedy as well, but it was also quite serious in places, and the first episode was a good story.

Cant wait to see more of this.

Re: The Orville

The online reviews I've seen so far have not been good. Hyped as a Sci-Fi comedy they are saying that there really isn't much to laugh about in it.

Then again I think a lot of critics just like to hate on Seth McFarlane where possible.

I will watch it tonight maybe.

Re: The Orville

I watched it myself. Although there are comedic moments I would not describe it as a comedy, there appears to be a deeper undercurrent.

According to Seth McFarlane it will be exploring all sides of the genre, comedy, light side dark side and all inbetween.

IMHO it may well end up being a classic series.

Bottom line, I enjoyed it (especially "Arbour Day") and I'll watch again and give it a chance.

Fox UK will be airing it but AFAIK there is no date set as yet (at least of 5 days ago).

It is not even on their site as an up and coming series although the deal has allegedly already been agreed.

Re: The Orville

Seth MacFarlane obviously wanted to be Captain James T Kirk when he was a kid and with him being goldenballs in the eye of Fox, they gave him free range to create this monstrosity.

It's like an parody of Star Trek, except it's not funny or anything else a parody should be.

You can't even use the excuse of it's humour being subtle, it's just not there. I laughed once. Just.

Re: The Orville

I really don't think it is meant to be a parody as much as a homage to Trek and other Sci-Fi shows.

I really enjoyed the second episode and it had a real TBG vibe about the main plot, but I do love the moments were it tries to input some humour as some of the things are said or talked about would actually go one, rather than the total seriousness of Trek.
