Goofs

When the shuttle leaves the dying planet and Bortus says "We are clear" it is very clear there was a lot more room in the shuttle to save all people, even if they had to stand cramped next to each other, which would be no problem since the shuttle arrived at The Orville a few minutes later.

I have a "Primal Urge" to switch off
5 January 2019 | by redpin-70557See all my reviews

What a big failure this was. Absolutely "nothing to see here, moving along please".

You could find this sort of rubbish in any soapy or sit com from the past 60 or more years.

Think I'll go re-watch some episodes of "People of Earth". I'll get a laugh and forget about this sad effort.
