I would normally be upset about a Fox Sunday night show leaving, but that's a pretty good decision. Discovery would kill this show.

While I thought the first eps was fairly bad I'm going to give it a chance, I saw enough potential plus I can't get enough Sci-Fi lol

In all seriousness, I'm having dumb fun with The Orville and I'm legit hyped for Discovery but I'm a lone wolf on that one.

It is a good week for space fans...

Wow, wtf was with that football? They delay Orville, then they don't even let you watch the end of the game. It's like an insult to both Orville and football fans.

I was kinda shocked at that, i thought it was a rule after the Heidi game that all gamrs had to play out or maybe that was a rule for another channel.

There few scenes with the ad-libbing felt horribly out of place. I'm watching the Emmys now, but I'll catch up tomorrow on Hulu.

Well, I'm hoping enough of you have seen pinhead by now. But this episode has the same plot as the pilot to The Original Series. Which is cool because this is exactly like what I wanted this series to be. Rewrites of Star Trek episodes, but with humor.
But I have to admit that the humor has been lacking a bit.

This is so Star Trek I'm surprised Paramount/CBS don't sue. I think the show has promise, though.

I've noticed several sound effects that are ripped straight from Trek, tonight specifically was the alarm during the euthanasia protocol.

I like this show. With the new Star Trek moving to a closed service that I am not going to pay for, The Orville is a close enough facsimile with the added bonus af having some jokes thrown in to boot. Tonight's episode was more drama than comedy which is alright by me. Whether or not it is as good as a classic Stat Trek episode is up for debate (I don't think it was), but I'm willing to keep watching in the hopes that it gets better and fills that sci fi void.

I see it as their attempt to sort of go with something vaguely resembling an Alcubierre drive, although if each engine can operate independently with the other two disabled, I guess that doesn't make much sense.
