Review of The Orville

Thursdays, 9:00 PM ET on FOX

60 minutes

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, “Ted”) and directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book,” “Iron Man”), THE ORVILLE is a one-hour science fiction series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel. Its crew, both human and alien, faces the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace…even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship.

Five minutes in and I know everything I need to know... Star Trek Next Generation meets Galaxy Quest... the Next Gen rip off is so replete that every single character on the bridge is a direct corollary to the Next Gen cast. Its basically Next Gen with some goofy adolescent comedy. It might be fun for a couple episodes, but its definitely going to be canceled.

As a bonus, its misogynistic, as the female co-lead is called a BITCH at least twice in the first episode.

well, she did kind of a bitchy thing, so why not call her a bitch? is it misandry to call a male character who does something bad "an asshole"?

A female character 'not in power' being called a Bitch is very different than a male character 'in power' being called an asshole. Plus its a specifically derogatory female slur as opposed to the general asshole, which of course the male character was not called in the show. Are you a woman or a man? If you are a woman, I think you have been influenced by the patriarchal society you live in. If you are a man, then you are a typical man.
