Wow! The negativity here surprises me. But I guess if it wasn’t for Desilu Star Trek wouldn’t have survived its blip (3 seasons) in TV history. Wasn’t Seth involved with the Star Trek: Enterprise with Scott “Quantum Leap”? To be honest I didn’t know what to expect...Ted Lost in Space, Family Guy meets the Jetsons or American Dad on Battle Star Galactica... it gets better with every episode. Loved Rob Blue Lowe. Looking forward to season 2 300 years from now. For fun rewatch Star Trek as an adult and I’m guessing you will catch more of the humor then when you watched as a kid. Live long and props Seth!

This show is so funny, without being offensive which I was expecting it to be. There's a few cultural issues they address, but do it with humor, without being preachy or pushing one side over another. This is a must watch for people who love Sci Fi.

The Orville caught me off guard. I expected it to be bad - I tend to tolerate Seth for my husband more than actually enjoying his work. So I was prepared to grit my teeth and sit through episodes that completely disgusted me.
But I like it - a lot (except the 3rd episode). It took what I love about series like Star Trek and washed away Roddenberry's very utopian ideals, instead injecting a surprising amount of both humanity and humor while still *trying* to tackle weighty and difficult subjects - with some success.
One of the things that works so well is these characters are very recognizable. Ever seen a nasty divorce? Ever seen the couple still required to work together? Yeah, it's ugly and cringeworthy, but these people are real. Maybe people will change in 300 years - if that's what you want, Star Trek is your better option - but maybe people fundamentally don't change. And that, I think, is what The Orville examines in it's rather unique take on the future of humanity's exploration of space.

Glad this was picked up for a 2nd season. I really like whenever Kelly (Adrianne Paliki) is in a scene. She's so hot. She makes it a pleasure to pleasure myself while watching.

I LOVE this show!! The last episode with Rob Lowe as the blue guy was hilarious. Seth is doing an excellent job with the series. So glad to see that it was already renewed for season two. Hopefully it will be around for many years to come.

I was really caught off guard by the episode titled Cupids Dagger. Pretty bold stuff, although not as bold as some shows. The scene with Dr. Finn (Penny Johnson) and the gelatinous creature 'Yaphit' immersing themselves in some interspecies love making was pretty hot!

The Orville is one of the best on TV.
Done cancel the Orville.
