Nycc: Seth MacFarlane is “confident” and “optimistic” about The Orville getting a season 2

While it’s still a bit early for Fox to officially say whether or not they’ll be extending their stay on the U.S.S. Orville, the show’s creator, executive producer and star, Seth MacFarlane, had a few reassuring words to offer up on the show’s status at New York Comic Con.

On Friday night, The Orville’s panel saw cast members Adrianne Palicki, Penny Johnson Jerald and Scott Grimes and executive producers Brannon Braga and David A. Goodman joining thousands of fans at a packed Hammerstein Ballroom in the Manhattan Center. Although attendees were bummed that MacFarlane, who was originally set to appear, was unavailable to attend the panel in person, he called into the panel via Skype roughly halfway through to field some questions from audience members.

During his answer for one question about the size of the show’s universe, MacFarlane alluded to the

World War II Hero Portrayed in Band of Brothers, Donald Malarkey, Dies at 96

Donald Malarkey, a World War II veteran portrayed by Scott Grimes in the Emmy-winning HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, has died, reported the Associated Press. He was 96.

Malarkey died on Saturday in Salem, Oregon, of age-related causes, his son-in-law told the AP.

As a paratrooper, Malarkey was awarded the Bronze Star for his heroics on D-Day in 1944, according to the AP. He parachuted behind enemy lines at Normandy, destroying German artillery.

He was a member of the Easy Company — the Army company profiled in the 2001 American war drama — with whom he fought in the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944.

‘The Orville’ Episode 3: Why Its Poor Understanding of Gender Makes ‘About a Girl’ The Worst Episode Yet

‘The Orville’ Episode 3: Why Its Poor Understanding of Gender Makes ‘About a Girl’ The Worst Episode Yet
[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “The Orville” Season 1, Episode 3, “About a Girl,” below.]

The Orville,” now having been on the air for two weeks now, has become a ratings success for Fox, despite negative reviews. There are always a variety of explanations for that sort of discord between the viewing audience and professional critics, but in the case of Seth MacFarlane’s “homage” to the “Star Trek” franchise, the answer might be relatively simple: Critics were able to see three episodes, not just one.

And of the first three episodes, “About a Girl” was by far the most troubling screened by critics, because it exposed just how out of his depth MacFarlane was in trying to find his own take on “Star Trek.”

Theoretically, “The Orville” wouldn’t have been complete without the “Family Guy” creator following in Gene Roddenberry’s footsteps and attempting to tackle Important Issues of the Day in the context of science fiction. For decades, “Trek” has used allegory

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

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.

‘The Orville’ Wouldn’t Be Such a Critical Failure If It Were a Half-Hour Comedy

‘The Orville’ Wouldn’t Be Such a Critical Failure If It Were a Half-Hour Comedy
The fact that the new Fox series “The Orville” is an hour-long “space adventure,” not a half-hour sitcom, has proven to be a major surprise for fans of creator Seth MacFarlane.

It makes sense, given that he’s best known for the hundreds of episodes of animated comedy he’s produced since the launch of “Family Guy” in 1999. In addition, there’s much of the show’s marketing: Looking back at the original trailer presented during the Fox upfronts, from the music choices and the punchline-heavy editing to the tagline “the universe has a crew loose,” it’s easy to see why people still seem to think the series is a half-hour comedy.

Of course, as viewers now know, “The Orville” is twice the length and nowhere near as funny as expected. Instead, the freshman drama aims to create a new spin on classic science fiction series like “Star Trek” — and not that successfully.

Seth MacFarlane’s ‘The Orville’ Hopes to Brighten Up the Sci-Fi TV Universe

Seth MacFarlane’s ‘The Orville’ Hopes to Brighten Up the Sci-Fi TV Universe
On Wednesday, The Paley Center for Media hosted day eight of its annual PaleyFest Fall TV Previews for Fox’s new sci-fi series, “The Orville.” Created by Seth MacFarlane, “The Orville” follows the adventures of Ed Mercer (MacFarlane) and his crew aboard one of Earth’s space fleet vessels as they explore the cosmos.

MacFarlane and castmates Adrianne Palicki, Halston Sage, J. Lee, Mark Jackson, Penny Johnson Jerald, Peter Macon, and Scott Grimes were joined by executive producers Brannon Braga and David Goodman on the panel.

“Working with comedy and science-fiction is a challenge because every time it’s a reinvention as to how the comedy fits into the narrative; it’s a learning process,” MacFarlane said. “I’m someone who tends to be a punching bag for the critics, so it’s great to see such a positive response from the fans — which is really all that matters.”

He added, “Science

The Orville Review – TV – MacFarlane Boldly Wanders Into Strange Territory

There aren’t many shows that can offer up as little in the way of realized positives as Seth MacFarlane‘s latest, The Orville, and still seem to be filled with potential. MacFarlane fans, and those expecting the off-the-wall comedy offered up in the trailers, will probably be put off somewhat simply by way of expecting an effort that is attempting a lot more laughs. Sci-Fi fans will likely need a bit of time to figure out what they’re supposed to be watching as the Star Trek knock off will immediately make you wonder exactly what the loopholes in copyright laws are. The pilot is rough, doesn’t have a lot of laughs, and falls into the lazy routine of establishing conversations that are painfully artificial. Still, there’s something about the premise, and the combination of actors and guests, that make this one that could ultimately come together.
