It might be a bad Star Trek intro, but I always liked the whole "humanity's journey to the stars" theme that it had (despite the absence of Yuri Gagarin).

I meant the into song itself. ENT wised up and went for a lyric-less version in season 3. I agree, the visuals were spot on.

Lyrically it probably wasn't the best either, but it still had that whole theme I was talking about. Apparently it's been used by shuttle crews a few times:

I caved. I had to see it. I subscribed.

Episode 3 is much more Star Trek than the pilot. The new captain is a mysterious badass, and the Discovery is a nice looking ship. I'm looking forward to see what this season is all about.

There's a new series? I'll have to check it out. I discovered The Orville last Friday and binge watched the first 4 episodes. I can't wait till they put out the fifth episode. Imagine Star Trek if it was written by the guy who does Family Guy. Because it is.

I didnít like the first episode of The Orville, but it got better after that.

I found it to be quirky without being camp. You gotta love a show where they use the word 'dick' in every episode.  :D

I loathe any episode of Star Trek that uses the holodeck to let the writers just be lazy and not write about scifi. I wasnít happy to see them pick up on that aspect. It was short and humorous so it was ok. Hope they donít overuse it.

They've used it twice but both times it was short. The second time was the cowboy/three amigos program.

Orville feels Trek to me except for MacFarlane's irreverent touches. The father (Jeffrey Tambor) complaining about his diverticulitis was amusing and different from anything you would see on Star Trek. MacFarlane bringing up his ex wive's infidelity every chance he gets is also funny. Well, as funny as infidelity could get considering he brings it up at the worst times. I also love the music/score for the show. It is reminiscent of the music from Star Trek to me.

If more people start watching we can start talking about the "s**** drive". Which is interesting. It'll be neat to see how that could relate to things we've seen in other Trek series.

i can not stand Seth..but he has done a good job with Orville..even with keeping his character out of the limelight too..the last episode with the bioship was classic Trek at its best

Just watched the pilot ST:D (heh heh) and the third The Orvile. I thought STD, the tv show, was awesome. Im still considering if I like the new Klingon look. Maybe better than a bunch of buttheads but all those prosthetics might get in the way of any real acting. The Crouching Tiger lady makes a great captain and the latest casualty from Walking Dead is Commander Michael. I was bummed when WD killed her off so really glad to see her resurrected on STD. Planning to binge the whole first season when it's finished.

And I'm really enjoying The Orville. It's a really nice combination of goofy humor, decent special effects and nice sci-fi storytelling. Good job Seth. I knew you wouldn't let us down

Finally getting caught up on the first half of the first season. "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad" is a fun episode. That Disco party looked like a good fucking time.

I like the nod to real-life mushroom expert (and Coast guest) Paul Stamets.

If you haven't watched this, do. Amazing.

episode 10 was the best one of the season so far

That was interesting in the last episode in the mirror universe where they discovered the USS Defiant was there and from their "future"
That is also what happened in the "Enterprise" series in its 2 part episode in the mirror universe. The Defiant was more advanced than the starships they had then.
The Defiant moved to the mirror universe into the past when it disappeared in the classic Star Trek episode "The Tholian Web"

I like the reimagined mirror uniforms. The gold armor is a cool detail.

Literally, the only nice thing I have to say about this show is, "thank God I don't fucking watch it."

I'd rather spend an evening learning to line dance. Carry on.
