Review of The Orville

Thursdays, 9:00 PM ET on FOX

60 minutes

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, “Ted”) and directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book,” “Iron Man”), THE ORVILLE is a one-hour science fiction series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel. Its crew, both human and alien, faces the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace…even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Someone needed to make a decision about if this is a comedy or not.. potential for good adolescent belly laughs but they didn't pull it off in this episode. There were a couple of grins but nothing to write home about for me.
Maybe they'll get better as they get to know their characters better. The two goof balls at the helm did their jobs.. well.. the rest.. meh.
The SFX are fun .. the sets.. ho hum, like Epcot center's view of the future when it opened but more minimal.
Now if, in the next episode, there are tribble look alikes.. I might be hooked.. give me a little squeaky furry thing and I'm in.
