Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on September 12, 2017

The Orville is Seth MacFarlane’s new space scifi show that’s being billed as a comedy, but at least based on the pilot, it’s not a very good comedy but it is a pretty good space scifi show. The pilot’s a bit rough just because the jokes don’t land too well and they’re busy introducing all the characters, but it’s a solid enough Star Trek episode story. Enough to make me want to see where the story goes, and/or see if the jokes come around. Plus the ship’s security officer is cute, even in her weird alien prosthetics.

I do wish MacFarlane wasn’t actually acting in this, as he’s a far better voice actor than actual actor, but he’s made Fox literally billions of dollars so they’re probably happy to keep funding his vanity projects. And he’s got a solid cast around him, so I don’t think I’ll mind him that much.
