Re: The Orville

Very strong episode this week. I'd say it's their 2nd best one behind the 4th episode. I loved the part when Ed was explaining the evolution of human skin color to the krill kid. The line about humans worshiping the god of Hertz got a good out of me. Seth is definitely trolling the religitards. The use of real science has been excellent. I'm calling it now. At some point in this series, Neil deGrasse Tyson will have a guest starring role.

Re: The Orville

I wasn't sure about this show at first and while it's certainly not appointment television for me, it's a fun and pretty light hearted adventure.

Would be funny if hes a worshipper of 20th century science whos on a crusade against 25th century science.



Thank Hertz that I didnt quit after the Pilot. I really like this series. Lighthearted yet serious at times, like Eureka in a way. I hope they get a second season.

Re: The Orville

Strongest episode of the season so far for me. Well definately since the fourth. I am a Christian. But I have loved the use of real Science. Call me a Sane Christian . Really enjoyed the plot meeting the Krills. And trying to form peace. Then eventually had to kill their crew . I really loved the opening cold open. With the Wasabi haha. I had to laugh when was it Ed or the XO (Seth) pretended to be a Krill "Eat my gun" . If I had to make any comparisons to any show, well show's. Probably Eureka, Star Trek, Red Dwarf. It merges all the best elements out of these shows. It is so light hearted, but with depth. I hope this show get's a second season. Seth had an interview recently, and said it is pretty likely.

Re: The Orville

Just watched the recent episode. One Word BRILLIANT. It is no hyperbole to say this was one of the most boldest, clever, intelligent, progressive episode of TV I have seen in a long time. The usage of Social Media and Democracy was so good. Definately the episode of the season so far. I wasen't so sure about this show in the pilot. But wow this show has come on. It has to be my favorite new show of the year. This has to be picked up for a second season, it just has to be. It is the best Sci Fi show since Chuck. It is so refreshing to see a show in this genre. That is uplifting and optimistic. It is currently kicking any Sci Fi shows ass right now. Heck even the new Star Trek imo.

I loved the touch on how social media has gone wrong. And likes just like currency. And in a Democracy where this society lives in a more "American Idol" Type Utopia. And when Ed wwas like "Oh it is a popular entertainment show from old earth, where they vote on the best singer" Bortus: "Why?" Ed: "It was a Dark Time" . When John was going on the Talk Show to save his life basically. And his Lawyer is like "Go out their show some positivity". And the way the host was like and now on the show the guy who descicrated the statue John!! The way he ran in high fiving the crowd . And real climax with the positive/negative battle their. The Collobaration Share thing was really clever.

I also love how they are bringing serious issues into the show. I loved this conversation between Lysella and Bortus about Democracy.



Then when Issac was like "I beleive you are confusing opinion with knowledge" Brilliant. IT is interesting topic to delve into. About Democracy. Who's correct? I Think Bortus was. But I also agreeded with Lysella.

The end with "You can make your world better". IS the Star Trek I grew up with. Leaving you off with an Uplifting and Optimistic vibe. Great Episode.

I completely agree with everything you said here. This last episode was absolutely bold and brilliant. The concept of a global culture based upon "upvoting" and "downvoting" each other to regulate behavior... and to present it the way they did... My hat is off to Seth McFarlane. This episode took some stones to film and put on TV.

I am loving this show.

Oh yeah that's true. In any case let's hope this show get's picked up for a second season. Seth said he is optimistic about that, so well see.

Re: The Orville

Another solid episode this week. Very consistent this show. Liked the development of Issac in this episode. It was a good thing he went along with Claire and her kids . His logical ways came in handy. The two actors who played Claire's kids did a good job too. I am really loving the Scenery, CGI, and Cinematography in this show. Each week its such a joy to see which Planet they visit next. And which humans or spicies they inhabit. Another great visit this week. I continue to love the old earth references they keep making. The Barry Manilow reference. Glory Hole was funny. Last weeks was better, was more original and bold. But this episode it was nice to see some character depth with Claire and Issac. Look forward to next weeks one.
