Re: The Orville - Fox Thursday

I've been enjoying this show at lot more than the critics (19% Rotten Tomatoes rating ).

I've found it compliments Star Trek Discovery in the sense that The Orville is light and humourous (in a good way) and Star Trek Discovery is dark and serious (also in a good way).

I've actually found myself confusing some characters in the two shows. In the most recent STD episode when they showed the doctor - I was expecting the doctor from the Orville. The might just be due to my senile dementia though.

Anyone know how the ratings are so far for The Orville? Curious if it has any chance of getting renewed with the poor critical reaction.

Re: The Orville - Fox Thursday

I've seen the Rotten Tomatoes rating and am surprised at the low number of 19%, but that's the hoity toity critics, or the tomatometer.

When looking more closely at this site I see the audience really is enjoying it at 92% score from viewers.

I also am enjoying way more than I did with the first couple of episodes. It is my favorite new show.

According to the ratings here: https://tvseriesfinale.com/tv-show/t...-nfl-football/ it's not doing that well but it could be worse. Apparently it took a big hit when it moved to Thursday.

Not much science in it compared to the last epi.
I liked this episode as well.

Once we got a look at Krill's backstory, they thought it was their right to take what they wanted, it brought back memories of ST:V and the Borg.

I also liked the idea Capt. Mercer kept all of the children safe while killing all of the other Krill with the "light". I also found it interesting when the Krill teacher said all the children would want to kill Capt. Mercer because he destroyed everyone on the ship.

If you think about it, these were probably children of the Krill shipmates. May've even been children of their Capt. and spiritual leader (the one in the red outfit).

The problem I had with the last episode was them assumingly speaking the language perfectly and not sticking out like a sore thumb when making small talk. It's a bit lazy to just gloss over all of that stuff but plenty of SciFi shows, including Trek, have done that.

English is obviously the universe wide language - unless there's a plot point to the foreign language.

Yeah, it would've been nice for there to be some type of explanation. TPTB should've given the Krill teacher some type of dialogue.

Yeah, you'd think Seth would come up with the goofiest sounding languages anywhere (imagining the Knights who say ni type silliness.)

It's not just about language but also knowing enough about the culture to not stand out. It's just a pet peeve of mine really.
