Re: The Orville
Just watched the whole episode, only seen bits. I actually really enjoyed this episode. Very light like the rest of it. Could argue it was a filler. But it offered alot of Quality. Some highlights.
The opening Seinfeld sequence was a big surprise. I loved that. The fact they are in deep into the future. And they are watching a iconic sitcom from the nineties haha. Also loved Issac the robot not getting the comedy. Which had a payoff later on in the episode when he amputated Ed's leg, that was pretty laugh out loud funny I Thought.
As for the main plot. With the Black Hole, and time travel. I Did enjoy the tension between the XO and his ex wife. Charlize Theron character created. And Seth's character delving more into his trust issues. This show continues to have a ton of heart. I agree time travel is confusing in TV shows. I took it as she knew they were going to die with the Black Hole. But they diddn't. I agree I just assumed the event created an alternative timeline to what the Orivlle was existing.
Once again it's so refreshing to see a Sci Fi show that's not dark, and depressing in tone. It's really fun. For a show in its first season. A very bold show in that. It's not the finished product yet. But last weeks episode particularly. It's really found it's groove. Seth is surprising me. Man actually showed his range as an actor this episode. He's perfect for this role. I'm hopeful it gets picked up for a second season.
