All good points.

I think the biggest mistake that has been made by the Orville team is trying too hard to replicate the societal aspects of the original Star Trek.

Hopefully, they find their footing as the season progresses.

The latest episode didn't bother me or bore me but it was fairly predictable.

Yeah, they seem to be replicating way too much of all aspects of Star Trek. I hope it finds it groove soon, as something a little different. I thought there was plenty of potential in the first two episodes.

Watched all 3 episodes....and was more "meh". I think Episode 3 turned it from "i'll give it more time to develop" to "meh" for me.

And I am old enough to know how edgy the original was. I enjoyed watching the original when I was young more because of the fact that it was about the possibilities in space. (OTOH I absolutely loathed Lost in Space)

I will admit to going in with a bias because I am not a fan of McFarlane....

That dirty son of a bitch. I thought she was dating the guy who plays the Riddler in Gotham before. Which is odd because I thought that guy was gayer than a suit pocket full of pink handkerchiefs.

So the last two episodes have been much more serious sci-fi and it's clear that SM really wants to make this a Trek-lite. But I don't mind because IMO it's really not that bad. The SM humor is toned-down and only here and there. The effects are actually really good (way better than most of the Trek stuff). This last story about the eco-ship was something that could easily have been written by one of the great mid-20th-century sci-fi writers, and I loved the Liam Neeson cameo. Will the show last? Probably not. But it's probably better than what the first season of that pay-per-view Trek series is going to be.

Up against Scandal and Will and Grace? Doesn't bode well for the ratings.

Please just stop with the pickle joke. I don't know if that's supposed to be Seth's version of "he's dead jim", but it really is annoying. Malloy, again, best character in the episode. Still on the fence about the show.

I liked last night's episode and the direction they're taking.

To me, it totally felt like Star Trek and I loved that Captain Ed, despite his feelings, made the best choice for his galaxy.

That was some cold-blooded Captain Kirk/Shatner shit and I loved it.

That was a really good episode. I legit laughed when Malloy came hopping out without his leg.

The only thing that they should have done different was have Adrianne Palicki and Charlize Theron settle their differences in a bikini clad oil match.

Each episode is better than the last. Really enjoying the show now.

When did Charlize start looking old? She is aging in a hurry now.

That tends to happen to women in their 40s.

I think shes still stunning.

Watch "Atomic Blonde". She looks pretty good. People forget she's 42, not 24.

42 isn't old dammit. That's my age, and she looks older than I do. I would have guessed she was closing in on 50.

I presume you're a man. 42 isn't old for a man.
