I was very impressed with the third episode. They went THERE and ended up doing a pretty good job of respecting each side of the argument. Good TV makes you think.

Me too. I kinda groaned when I realized the subject matter, but it was treated respectfully. And I was not expecting the ending. I thought it was well done.

If you wanted to lampoon the Star Trek franchise, the Orville is it. I watch it and think that these people are not being serious about anything from the second it first appears on the screen. It's a farce. But fifty years of Star Trek have conditioned its audiences that it's supposed to be serious. Someone is having a little fun with us I think.

Pay attention one time to the obligatory into. The over-long introduction with the generic "soaring" music and images of the Orville plying it's way through excessively fantastic "space scenery" reminds me of Star Trek Voyager. If someone wanted to poke-fun of the intro scenes of Star Trek (and IMHO someone should) then the Orville is it.

That's just it. I think it is supposed to poke-fun/lampoon, but it's just not funny. I chuckled a couple times and thought a better lead actor would have made a couple more lines pop a little, but otherwise, I've been bored with it.
