IMDB: The Orville: S1E1 – 2017
IMDB Rating: 7.5/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 20%
So I had heard both some good and some bad about The Orville, with it’s writers and it’s cast as being (for the most part) highly talented and more than competent.
The pilot episode is an interesting one. Newly assigned Captain Ed, gets his friend Gordon (who has some weird need to draw penises on screens) the job as his helmsman (ships pilot). However it does make things interesting when Ed’s ex-wife gets assigned as his First Officer.
I did enjoy the scene where Ed met all his new officers (excluding the ex-wife) especially Isaac the racist robot who thinks that all biological lifeforms are inferior.
Overall, it seems as though this will be a highly satirical show with somewhat crude and politically incorrect humour that will tickle your sides appropriately.
