Goofs

In the beginning Isaac says "The sun will not become a red super-giant for another five billion years". Actually the sun will never become a red super-giant at all, but only a 'red giant'. For example, Betelgeuse is a red super-giant and Aldabaran is a red giant. The sun will only become like Aldabaran in the far future. See more »

The Orville has lost it's edge!
4 January 2019 | by GromstaurSee all my reviews

Once again, what should be the main event of the episode plays second fiddle to relationship/parenting drama. I can't think of anything less interesting coming from a Sci-Fi show. So far, season two is firmly stuck in a ditch, serving up one pointless filler after the other. I sincerely hope things pick up soon.
