Loved the aliens. Can't remember what they were called, but the way they moved was hilarious.

Yeah, I thought it was ok. I'll keep watching for a while.

"We no longer need fear the banana". That was funny. A lot of it is not "ha ha" funny. But yeah, it seems to be a slightly less serious Star Trek, but not funny enough to be parody, so it's kind of strange.

Re: The Orville - Fox Sunday

it seemed to not decide if it wants to be funny or be dramatic

ZoW, I felt the same way. Plus, the funny stuff wasn't that funny.

It wants to have the same tone as Arrested Development but it's missing good writing.

Re: The Orville - Fox Sunday

That was pretty terrible. This show knows neither what it wants to be, or what it should be.

Seems to me that they are shooting for Firefly. Serious enough to have moral lessons and what not interspersed with some irreverent comedy with a sarcastic captain and a misfit
yet capable crew.

This first episode fell far short if that was the intended target. They have neither the writing
nor the cast to pull it off.

I'm going to give it about 1 more episode to find it's way.

I am not confident it will.

Re: The Orville - Fox Sunday

That's a shame, I was looking forward to this. Especially given how terrible that new Star Trek show looks.

Stop hitting the franchise, CBS, It's already dead :/

Re: The Orville - Fox Sunday

As someone who likes nothing of his outside of the first Ted, I gave it a shot. I'm sorry. Pee bits. Divorce quips. It's not worthy.
