it's a damn shame that many of those "hip" so-called "geek" publications got @TheOrville completely wrong. I loved the pilot and it's following episode. It's just damn fun. There's a genuine love. An homage to the space shows... yes, Star Trek. Seth Macfarlane has made his own Star Trek and it's a whole lot better and more imaginative than that hack J.J. Abrams. Some jokes fall flat... But then it's just throwing little nerf ball jokes here and there. There are some great characters. And yes, there is a sense of exploring... and exploration. There's also a damn sense of optimism. What, you don't want to watch that. You would rather watch an old guy's masturbatory urges about Dragons, pseudo politics, and beheadings... or some guy who names his bat... watch people argue... and kill each other and really get nowhere after seven seasons. ok, fine.
The pilot is so immediate. It does feel like the good old days of Science Fiction television. Yes, it feels like a 1990's series. But that's not any kind of criticism. From the tags and when they cut to commercial. There's a certain feel. I really hope people give Orville a chance. I am still pissed off at FOX for not believing in my boy Corey for 24:Legacy. I am more excited what Orville has to offer than Star Trek: Discovery... The fun thing is I could just sit back enjoy the Orville and not have to join a conversation and go, OMG... did you see that? I just want to watch a show with a good story and if it has an allegory somewhat... have my drink and snacks... i don't need to tweet about those OMG moments... I just want to let others know this show doesn't suck as many people on the internet makes it out to be#theorville#FOX#sethmacfarlane#futurecultclassic#fun#escapist#television
