The Orville Poster

I've never really been one about space stuff. I'll watch it...but I'm not crazy about this genre. However, I was convinced to watch this. I do adore Seth Seth MacFarlane so it didn't take too much convincing to give the show a try.

The show takes place 400 years in the future. Captain Mercer and his crew travel the galaxy to explore and help where they are needed. 

What I love about this show is that it is not a complete spoof. Sure they poke fun and make a few jokes, but this is a serious show. Serious topics and serious character development. It was the perfect blend of seriousness and comedy. Some jokes fall a little flat and can be dry. BUT I do love dry humor so I enjoy it and the awkward flat jokes make me laugh even harder. 

Honestly, the first couple of episodes are just okay. However, every week the show gets better and better and better. I can't wait for season 3. 

Where is everything going to lead? I am worried Ed and Kelly will get back together. I love both characters BUT not together. You got a divorce for a million reasons (the cheating number 1), and it just won't work. I just want them to be friends, but I do see some hints they will end up getting back together. SIGHS. We shall see. 

In the end, this a really good show. I can't wait for season 3. I shall stamp this with 4 stars.

I do love this type of show, but I was holding off because its a spoof. You changed my mind to at least try it since it does have some unexpected depth. :)
