Re: The Orville
Just watched the latest episode. Another great episode. Thoughts
This Si Fi is continuing to be my fav Sci Fi show right now. IT has its own little niche in the pool of Dark and Edgy Sci Fi's.
I am really loving the character of Alara. They really seem to in the first season focusing on alot of character development. She is the third character that has had alot of focus on he character. I really like that. Because I prefer when it comes to shows I really like. Not to just be background noise. But invest in the characters. Bortus is another one I really love. His last line "I am a little self concious, can I leave". Got a few laughs from my Parents lol.
I see critics are commenting on how Orville and Discovery are doing "Trek" very diffrently. And got to say watching both. I Think I prefer the Orville. Discovery is a bit more dark and edgy. Orville is pure Star Trek for me. Some of the absurdities. The Clowns, Bugs e.t.c. Were all very effective. And compelling. Like in the original Star Treks where they visited other planets, other spiecies e.t.c. Obviousley this whole episode was a whole Simulation. Which did not dawn on me until it was showed at the end hahaha. Anyway looking forward to Season 2. This show has been a big surprise. So be interesting how it develops next season.
