Ehhh. Not impressed with the trailer. I like MacFarlane's stuff. I like Star Trek. But this looks weird. Trailer didn't really do anything for me.

I wouldn't have even known who he was had the trailer not displayed his name.

I'm really looking forward to it. It's got a big budget, great cast and a real opportunity to fill the massive void of a SciFi/Space Exploration program.
Yeah, I just feel like Tim Allen doesn't play smug prick but rather the likeable jackass role that Bill Murray seems to be born to play. Robert Downey Jr. also does that extremely well.

I don't know, but for whatever reason I get the feeling that guys like Allen, Murray, RDJ, etc... are guys that are playing characters that think they're better than the characters they're in a role with. MacFarlane, OTOH, gives off a vibe of an actor that thinks he's better than the audience he's deigning to cater to. Cumberbatch occasionally falls into that realm as well. He's a comedic version of Sean Penn, IMO.

I just have a visceral dislike of the guy anytime I see him on screen.

3-4 episodes in, you'll hate the guy.

Not his character, but Seth MacFarlane himself.

Then I guess I'll be rooting for Ms. Perkins to kick his ass every week. :-)

Me too...I think it'll be funnier for star trek type fans or this type of genre.

Didn't know that was coming. Cool

This looks pretty good. Really liked Galaxy Quest, hope Orville is at least as good or better.

Toby Stephens from Black Sails plays John Robinson but in a twist (of course, because everything has to have gender flipping these days), Parker Posey plays Dr. Smith.

Personally, I think she's a great choice because she plays the conniving, condescending bitch so well. From my understanding, this version will remain dark, like the original season and not be all "campy" like the following seasons of the 60's series.

So we won't see a dopey Dr. Smith and silly interactions with Will and the Robot.

Hopefully, it works.

Parker Posey is great in almost everything she's done.

Sounds like Sepinwall just doesn't appreciate the lower brow forms of entertainment. Not everything can be Sopranos, you know.

Parker Posey? Yummy.

It's getting hammered by reviewers.

First off, it's supposedly not a comedy, despite the first trailers. It's serious, with "Bro Humor" thrown in as an afterthought. It's basically a homage to Star Trek but it's also a homage to The Twilight Zone (?).

Every review I've read said that the VFX and sets are phenomenal but the show just doesn't know what it wasn't be and that it's very confusing.

We'll know soon enough.
