Storyline

Admiral Tucker orders the Orville to investigate the disappearance of two Union anthropologists undercover on a planet akin to 21the century earth. The captain must stand by observing Kelly's small away party, including suitably empathetic doc, Alara -who headdress proves inefficient- and lieutenant John LaMarr, whose childish dance on a statue is considered an utter outrage. The society has no actual authorities, juts a system of voting by the general public o everyone's behavior, and John's is deemed bad enough for tele-voting which may result in 'social correction', a primitive electric brainwashing.

Claire had torn a fairly large portion of the bottom front of her shirt off to give to Alara as a scarf to cover her head & ear ridges. Yet when entering Lewis' apartment, it appears to be unaltered & the same length as earlier in the episode. See more »

Uncomfortable to watch
25 November 2017 | by lothos-370-690020See all my reviews

Both my praise and criticism revolve around how close our modern society is getting towards this extreme dystopian reality show style form of justice. The idea of being judged in the public forum before you ever reach a court room. In reality the mere accusation is enough to destroy peoples lives these days.
