The Orville Season 1 Episode 3 Review – ‘About a Girl’

23 September 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the third episode of The Orville

Online entertainment sites seem more concerned with the impact of Thursday night football on The Orville than anything else. Fox also re-launched Gotham against the Star Trek pastiche which is another reason why ratings may have bottomed out for MacFarlane’s creation. Whatever their arguments for moving it have no illusions this has anything to do with quality. Networks are strange and in the past some truly inspired television has been buried beneath cultural preoccupations. It would seem The Orville is no different.

MacFarlane has always been brave in his choice of topics and uses the position and clout he has attained to address contentious issues. Mixing it up in true Family Guy fashion what we get in The Orville episode three is a savage attack on the narrow-minded attitudes of some to gender conformity. There are some jokes mixed in »

Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville to feature Star Trek actor cameos

16 September 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Seth MacFarlane recently took to Reddit for an Ama to promote his latest Fox sci-fi comedy, The Orville, where he revealed that the show may feature a cameo or two from the actors of the franchise that helped inspire it, Star Trek.

When one user asked the Family Guy and American Dad creator/star if he had any plans to have Star Trek actors cameo on the show, MacFarlane responded with a vague “We got one or two in the lineup….”

Comment from discussion I am Seth MacFarlane. Ama..

While he doesn’t offer up any hints about which actors will appear on the show, it sounds like at least a few Star Trek stars are embracing The Orville, which is simultaneously a parody and love letter to the classic space franchise.

William Shatner always seems gung-ho about appearing in Star Trek rip-offs/send-ups and even returned to voice James T. »

TV Review: Seth MacFarlane’s ‘The Orville’ on Fox

5 September 2017 4:44 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When the dust settles, “The Orville” may emerge as the most inexplicable show of the new season. It certainly never makes a convincing case for its existence. The first impression — that it exists so that creator and star Seth MacFarlane can do elaborate “Star Trek” cosplay — is only reinforced over the course of the tepid trio of episodes that kick off the show.

MacFarlane has said he created “The Orville,” which also serves as the name of the ship its characters use to travel the galaxy, in order to put aspirational sci-fi back on television. He’s not wrong about the fact that too many shows lack both the humanistic optimism that defines “Star Trek” and the structural rigor the franchise’s TV writers displayed at their best.

But the way to pay homage to all things “Trek” (and “Twilight Zone”) is not with derivative storylines that awkwardly mix the frat-bro humor found on MacFarlane’s animated »

Set to premiere on Sunday, September 10th on Fox is The Orville, an hour-long sci-fi dramedy created by Seth MacFarlane (who also co-stars) and featuring a talented ensemble including Adrianne Palicki, Scott Grimes, Penny Johnson Jerald, Chad L. Coleman, J. Lee, Mark Jackson, and more. During the 2017 Comic-Con, Daily Dead briefly chatted with the trio of executive producers behind The OrvilleBrannon Braga, Jason Clark, and David A. Goodman—and they discussed the balance of humor and heart in the new series, collaborating with MacFarlane, and more.

Some of Seth’s other shows often do send-ups on different aspects of pop culture. Will The Orville be something different? It’s not just making fun of Star Trek for an hour, I’m guessing.

Brannon Braga: Yeah, it's not making fun of shows like that at all. Or science fiction in general. It's its own thing. If anything, it's a »
