Some Thoughts About "The Orville..."


So my wife and I have watched the first five episodes of "The Orville," by Seth MacFarlane. I have thoughts. Here they are.



It's Highly Derivative

"The Orville" is a show about the adventures of a starship's crew. The ship belongs to a Union of Planets, which is administered by a series of admirals and has a naval command structure. Their mission is to explore the galaxy and render aid when needed. They have a stoic second officer whose culture is vastly different than most of the people on board, as well as an android who struggles to comprehend human peculiarities. The ship travels at faster than light velocities, and features a holographic entertainment room and a matter replication system.

Sound familiar?

Um...there is some really heavy handed boxing imagery. The end.

Kevin's synopsis doesn't do this episode justice. There are plenty of meme-worthy screenshots of Chakotay screaming while other crew members are uncomfortably close to him.
