    This looks like a bad version of Galaxy Quest, but will watch for Adrianne Palicki.

    Looks kind of funny. Might be worth a shot. I was wondering what happened to the Kett after Mass Effect Andromeda, good to see they found a new gig.

    Definitely not some high tier comedy, but yeah, I'd welcome more Adrianne Palicki after AoS. In other news, apparently I'm having a firecrotch crave!

    Premier was pretty good. Good laughs and a much more decent main plot than I was expecting.

    For a pilot ... it just felt like a pilot. Not good, not bad, and not much past what the trailer itself showed. Can't really judge it without 2-3 more episodes at least.

    Maybe it's because I'm a huge Star Trek nerd but I actually quite enjoyed this. I suppose the early negative reviews kind of tempered my expectations of it not being completely a comedy but, honestly, I'm not sure how a pure comedy would work with this setting before getting old. If The Orville can be a spiritual successor to Trek while having some pop culture humor thrown in I'm okay with that.

    Things I genuinely laughed at was the "You win!" holodeck scene and the red wood busting through the Krill ship.

    I thought it was alright. I did laugh at how low budget the flight deck was though.

    Some shows take a few eps or even a season or two ( IASIP/PandR ) to develop fully.

    I enjoyed the pilot. I think there's a lot of room for growth.

    Watching the first ep.

    So far it just feels like Star Trek Meh instead of a parody of Star Trek. I was hoping for more laughs but they don't seem to be there.

    It felt like Star Trek with a touch of toilet humor.

    This show is basically the reason Seth got into the industry. It's his dream project.
    If he doesn't want his legacy to be 1999-2001 Family Guy and Ted, this has got to get better sooner.
    I'm holding out for Ralph Garmin's character in episode 8.
