I now come to each episode waiting for Bortis to appear. In this episode, we got Bortis and his mate.

9MM, I knew something funny was going to happen when they started tossing that thing around the room. But, I didn't expect the blade.

Her presence may have shaped the details of the religion, but not the need to believe. Faith was integral to those people...
I found it preachy as well.

It reminded of my Freshman Philosophy class, where the Professor explained to the class why God was just a figment of our imagination.

I think I made it through two episodes and, as everyone was saying they would, I dropped it when it was still terrible. I see this thread remains current though. Did the show get better?

Re: The Orville - Fox Thursday

IMO, yes it did, DSM.
The story lines became very Star Trekian. Nothing outstanding but every episode had some subtle and lol humor. No blow you away plot devices and tricks, but enjoyable.


Give it another try. A good one to view that would change your mind is the episode with Charlize Theron.

Re: The Orville - Fox Thursday

Agree with 9mile, DSM. Not serious like Voyager or Next Generation, but not comedy either (occasional comedic lines tossed in, but always quickies and they don't let it slow the pace any - WHICH i greatly appreciate. This show would be awful if they did Office-like glances to the camera.) Good visuals too, and some interesting characters (still hoping they flesh out spotty guy.)
