Season two kicks off next week, so I just re-watched season one. If you liked Star Trek in the 90s, give it a shot. I know a lot of folks who were hesitant to try it out because it has a lot of comedy, but it's definitely not "Family Guy in Space". It's much more like Star Trek The Next Generation with a little ironic self-awareness. While it can fall into all the cliches and hammy writing that plague that kind of show; speaking a TNG die-hard, it is probably my single favorite running TV show. It's created with a lot of sincerity and honor for it's genre. I think the Orville is carrying the torch for Star Trek; and while Star Trek Discovery's second season shows promise, it let me down with its first.
I can't wait to see what they've got in store for next year. It sounds like they've got a few cast changes coming. I enjoy the Orville's ensemble and there isn't one bad character in the bunch, so I'll be disappointed if we have to lose anyone. UItimately, everyone involved has sounded positive about it, and the first season was awesome; so I expect a lot out of Seth and crew for this year.
Anyone else excited for season 2?
