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.

You are the reason so many Francices are in trouble these days. You are reading your own psychological problems into the show. If you would have watched it longer than 5 minutes you would see that Kelly is a stronger female character than Michael Burnham and Ray together. But the Femnazi movement doesn't wand strong females, you want weak obidient men, well bad luck for you, this show has StongMale and Female Caracters, some are easy to love some need time. Maybe the writers of Star Trek Disappointment take a look at this show.
