I watched an episode of Orville and I definitely see where people are coming from when they say the show feels like Seth McFarlane only remembered during production that he sold Fox a comedy. The jokes stuck out like a sore thumb in what was otherwise a surprisingly serious and well-written story.Heinrad wrote:Actually, after giving it some thought, here's my verdict: if you want something that feels like TOS/TNG/VOY/ENT Star Trek, and you don't feel like paying CBS, watch The Orville. Despite what the critics think, I actually like the show and think it's pretty good. A friend of mine who hates Star Trek due to a childhood incident involving his family and a Star Trek marathon loves The Orville.
Also I want to hear more about this childhood incident.
