    I didn't hate it. Seems like most of the gags from the trailer were from the first episode, so I'll be interested to see how subsequent episodes play out.

    I'm glad this is moving to Thursdays nights. Too hard to reliably DVT it on Sunday, NFL games often run well past their allotted time. Last night, this didn't start till 8:48 Eastern

    This last episode (103) was surprisingly good. While it remained fun, it tackled a moral dilemma worthy of Picard.

    This show is more Star Trek than Star Trek is these days.

    It tries to be a parody comedy of Star Trek while at the same tries to present modern sociological and cultural issues that the Star Trek franchise is known for.

    So far I have liked the past 3 episodes. I saw that the critics hate the show...can't figure out why. It's not the best thing ever, but it is worth the hour of time it takes to watch it.

    I cannot yet truly say that. We'll see in a day or so.
    That said, it's definitely a good enough Trek for me.

    Just watched the pilot and I was kinda disappointed.
    1- Lots of similarities with Trek.
    2- Little or no creativity.
    3- CGI is not so good.

    It's not a very good space show, but I believe it's a good comedy show.

    ^That's basically how I felt. I've only watched the first episode, and I think it's a pretty good comedy, but if I was to try and take it at all seriously as a sci-fi show I would hate it.

    I don't see this as a comedy. It has funny moments in it but i would not say it's a comedy.
    At least it's not a dark drama about war or SGU style we are all going to die so lets have multi culture sex with everything that moves and lets pray for god in a group.

    Orville is more like a happy space adventure without dark sad drama.

    CGI part they wanted to make it like it was decades ago by using models and less green screen as possible. Thats not like Star Trek that is mostly made in green screen and as much CGI as they can make.

    The first scene is a guy walking in on his wife cheating on him with a blue alien who squirts blue stuff out of his head, a year later they are divorced and she becomes his first officer. If I was to take that in any way seriously (a cheating spouse becoming her ex's first officer) I would hate it, but since the show is not meant to be taken seriously I'm fine with it. I've only watched the first episode, and based on that, I think the show is too silly to be taken seriously as anything other than a comedy. The silliness is what makes the show enjoyable to me.

    You should check the third episode if possible, I find it far better both in joke delivery and surprisingly even in the deeper theme it has.
    The first ep wasn't really good in comparison, I find.

    I'll probably watch more eventually, but I'm not sure I'd like it if it got more serious. The only reason I can actually tolerate the cheating ex-wife being the first officer is because of the silliness (that and because I've liked the actress in other things). I don't care if he was an absentee husband, that's a really lame excuse for cheating in my opinion (I honestly don't think that there is a good excuse for cheating, if you have issues in your marriage, talk about it or just get a divorce). I don't think could take this show seriously and come away liking the characters or the character dynamics.

    My name is Annoyed and I agree with the above post. She is quite the hottie.

    Again, very Star Trekish.. Trek shows have always had their eye candy.

    This show is really trying to be Star Trek.
    Spoiler:
    Anyone notice this week's ep is a mishmash of several TOS episodes, primarily "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" & "The Paradise Syndrome", with bits from David Gerrold's TOS Novel "The Galactic Whirlpool" thrown in too.

    Oops, appears I was somewhat mistaken. They might want to go the more serious way (somewhat). That also means The Orville can pretty much fully fill my need for Star Trek.

    Btw, great cameos and guest stars, I'm amazed.
