‘The Orville’ Season 1: What’s Improved, What Hasn’t, and What May Be The Show’s Fatal Flaw

‘The Orville’ Season 1: What’s Improved, What Hasn’t, and What May Be The Show’s Fatal Flaw
It’s been somewhat impossible to detangle any critical consideration of Fox’s “The Orville” from “Star Trek,” the franchise to which it’s hard to deny a connection. But even when evaluating “The Orville” on its own merits at the start of Season 1, the first three episodes screened by critics were hard-going, as Seth MacFarlane’s “space adventure” featured a wildly fluctuating tone, major pacing issues, and entire scenes that served only to deliver exposition.

It was enough to inspire a harsh review when the show premiered. But while the problems with those early episodes were numerous, some of them could be attributed to the sort of stumbles that occur at the beginning of any new series.

Arrow Round Table: Did Thea Go Too Far?

Did Thea do what needed to be done?

That was a key question after Arrow Season 5 Episode 14 in which she went all-out in her mission to take down Susan. 

TV Fanatics, Jim Garner, Kathleen Wiedel, Steve Ford and Robin Harry discuss the many returns, Thea's decision, and Oliver revealing the truth. 

What did you think of the ladies returning to wreak havoc?

Jim: Kelly Hu's wig was horrible. Other than that best I can say is "meh." Seemed like a convenient "bad guy of the week" didn't really add anything to the overall story.

Kathleen: It came across as a "designated girls team-up" story. Cupid always struck me as a rather silly character; then there were over-wrought rogue cop Liza Warner and stone-hearted Triad hit-woman China White. The idea that these three would stick together longer than it took to effect a jailbreak was... unlikely.

Steve: I agree with Jim,
