    Ratings were nowhere near this bad in season 1.

    They’ve only aired 2 episodes so far give it a break, and the first one was in the last week of December.

    What a terrible time to premiere a season.

    That one did good. Last week's episode plummeted way below last season's worst. It actually did worse than Gotham. How the heck do you do worse than a piece of garbage show that's already canceled?

    Gotham is great though. Was it cancelled? They were just deciding to end it.

    ^ Apparently there are comments out there from the producers of Gotham stating that they had more story they wanted to tell, but I've not been able to find them.

    My opinion - and belief - is that the decision to conclude Gotham after 5 seasons was mutual and wasn't driven by dissatisfied FOX executives or a decline in ratings.

    The shorter episode order for Season 5 might have been, but I don't believe that the decision to end the series after 5 years was, and they're not even remotely the same thing.

    whew
    /fyo͞o/

    exclamation
    1. used to express surprise, relief, or a feeling of being very hot or tired.
      "Whew—and I thought it was serious!"
      synonyms: phew, thank goodness, thank God, what a relief
      "whew, we got out just in the nick of time"
    :nyah:

    (as to what context the previous poster was going for..., I haven't got a clue)
    :wtf:

    I don't know anything about the Orville. I might watch it some day. I don't want it to go off the air, because people seem to like it. but I do wish it wouldn't keep infecting every Star Trek conversation like a malignant tumor.

    Then why was there always audible tribble purring in that room?
    What procedure? QuchHa' Klingons look like Humans. (Presumably why they're "unhappy."

    I was just commenting to my wife which we should watch "live" and which on DVR/Stream between DSC, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Orville. We decided on B99 because it's only 30 minutes; we'll watch the others on our time when we have the 45-60 minutes to devote.

    Besides, Raymond Holt is one of the funniest (and quotable) characters on TV right now -- and in the past couple decades.




    And my personal favorite, when Holt is trying too hard to act like a straight heterosexual man while undercover/in hiding:

    Holt: "[the thigh gap] is my favorite part of a woman....
    There's nothing more intoxicating than the clear absence of a penis."​

    I only started watching the series last month, binged all of the previous seasons on Netflix.

    Rewatching the first season is reminding me of why Discovery has displaced Deep Space Nine as my favorite Trek series, and I'm finding new things to enjoy and notice about the series.... such as the fact that the Delta Shield badges also double as rank insignia.

    The Orville is terrible IMO so I don't have a conflict over what to watch.

    I just rewatched Choose Your Pain and, honestly, knowing the "Voq is Ash" secret causes his and Lorca's escape and L'Rell and Voq's overall infiltration plan to make zero sense because by confronting Ash/Voq, L'Rell really put herself in completely unnecessary danger.
