I've always liked Charlize Theron, so the last episode was much better even with her hair chopped off. I may even watch Hancock again in a day or two.

Star Trek has a long tradition of ďsoaringĒ music, mostly written by Jerry Goldsmith. As a french horn player, Iíve always appreciated his epic, horn-heavy composition style (and yes, Voyager is my favorite of themes, featuring the melody played by eight horns in unison in the low range). I cheered when I saw that The Orville featured music by Bruce Broughton, who writes in the Goldsmith style.

In the third episode of The Orville, when they are flying over the huge spaceship, the music is an obvious tip of the hat to Star Trek: The Motion Picture, also written by Goldsmith.

One of Broughtonís best soundtracks (and a favorite of horn players) is this:

Did you see her in the last Mad Max movie? Chopped off arm, and a buzz cut with black roots. Wow, didnít realize it was her until credit roll. Looks like the arm reattachment after the movie was filmed was successful ...

LOL, no. I'd rather her have both arms and long hair.

I find it to be along the lines of ST-TOS in that there is some moralizing without being too in your face.

Also the interaction between the crew members was pushed from the very first episode instead of being allowed to grow naturally from episode to episode. Could you imagine Bones making quips about Spock from the first episode without having seen any interaction between them? It would be like making a joke about some one being bald the first time you met them- awkward.
