I like the Orville, I like the humour, I do not want it to become too serious :(
I would never use those holodecks, any one can walk in :O
Yeah, if the jokes go, it's basically Star Trek without the beaming up. Actual Star Trek had more jokes than the "bye, Alara" episode.

If you're following this on Amazon in the UK, have a look at your "Video Library" - there's a new episode there (ep4) a few days before it was due. Just been watching it, bit of a crunching gear change between plot and subplot, but I appreciated the "be excellent to one another (even if it's tough)" message.

Yea, i watched it yesterday, i was suprised it was early.

I loved Gordon Malloy trying to train to be a Captain.
I do not ever want this series to lose its humour, ever

The humour definitely marks it out, and it's not as hacky as MacFarlane's Family Guy became, either. Also, more Yul Brynner is no bad thing.

New girl Jessica Szohr is really reminding me of somebody (a celeb), but I'm not sure who. Can anyone help?

I have a feeling you may be right on Jason Momoa! She could be his sister! Thanks.

(I know I'm two weeks behind) Well, that was quite sweet, and a proper comedy episode (the one with the human-robot love affair). And we got to see what Isaac looked like, or the actor who plays him. Seth does love his musicals, doesn't he?

Ooh, a mystery episode! This was one of those serious ones, so the biggest laugh for me was the "tractor beam"/"cupcake" gag, which was so pathetic I really laughed.

That was a bittersweet episode, it needed that gag!

I'll remain silent so as not to spoil anything. I've now seen the second part, and FWIW I didn't find it anticlimactic.

I have part1 recorded and the next episode arrives on Thursday. I was away for 10 days so a lot of catching up to do with assorted programmes.

I also watch The Orville...but imho it can't decide if it wants to be Star Trek or Galaxy Quest.
At first the heavy handed humor turned me off but I got used to it ,and now it seems like they want to be taken as serious sci-fi.
They need to make up their mind.

There's been a deliberate course correction based on feedback from the inaugural half-season (see post #27).
