honestly.. wow. i'm impressed.
10 June 2020 | by penavictoria-80495See all my reviews

Well, officially finished "the orville" and it was pretty incredible, definitely recommend it. experienced every emotion, loveable characters, and overall pacing and story was brilliant. at some point I stopped watching the show, and started feeling like I was on the orville. seth mcfarlane and his team did a wonderful job making star trek his own, with comedy and stories that were enjoyable, personable, and entertaining. excited for season 3. well done.
