The Orville

I didn’t really know if I wanted to watch The Orville, Seth Macfarlane’s parody take on Star Trek — and I’m much more excited to watch this fall’s Star Trek: Discovery. I like Star Trek (I’ve watched every series and every movie), and I did like Galaxy Quest, but I didn’t know if I was in for a joke-filled Trek-like. I watched the first episode last night, and was first surprised by the fact that it’s not as joke-filled and spoofy as I was expecting. I actually had a good time watching it, and the funny bits were mostly funny, and the overall episode was pretty entertaining. I won’t say that I love it, but I’m definitely going to watch a few more episodes.
