    This is the most awesome thing I've seen on the Internet this month. Possibly this decade. :lol:

    Huh... now that you point that out, you may be right. It might be the South Bend refit toy that had interchangeable modules to make different configurations.

    It would be cool if they could have some sort of super furry Lab Rat escape from the science section and wreak havoc with Malloy being the hero. Just don't hurt the lab rat.

    CAPTAIN STEWART: Captain Mercer, believe me when I say that it is impossible to overstate the extreme sensitivity and gravity of this matter, both diplomatically and -

    MERCER: Why do you always do that?

    CAPTAIN STEWART: I beg your pardon?

    MERCER: Make everything into a twenty minute speech? I mean, you really like the long form -

    CAPTAIN STEWART: Very well. Pay attention, dummy. This is important.

    MERCER: Thanks, I think.

    It still has to have Terence Mann and Don Opper. If not it's a wasted opportunity.

    Like Wolverine in Logan repeatedly trying to tell everyone around him that the stories in the X-Men comics were all gussied up and fictionalized versions of what really happened.

    Just started binge watching The Orville. The music reminds me of TNG, and I like this crew! They're funny.

    I love this show. Feels very TNG.

    I expected a comedy spoof and I dreaded the Ed-Kelly stuff, but it's not about them bickering. This show smashed my expectations like a glass egg. In fact I laugh when they joke aboout their marriage.

    Apparantly said there will be more Star Trek cameos - who do you think they'll have? (Stewart is possibly a definite as MacFarlane has him in practically every project now!)

    Glad you finally got access to view all of the episodes! I'm guessing it was worth the wait?

    Gordon comes by his adolescent defiance and jerkiness honestly, having experienced the singular humiliation of being bullied by Wesley Crusher for the way he dressed:

    Well, it sounds like the reorg under DIsney may not be a good thing for shows like The Orville after all - basically, Disney plans to spit out the Fox network and Fox News but retain ownership of 21st Century Fox studios. The expectation is that "New Fox" will become a heavily live entertainment and sports network, and will no longer have an owner's interest in MacFarlane's shows or anything else produced by Disney's Fox.

    So, at least we'll get two seasons. Probably.

    Yea. I love it!! Thanks


    Disney didn't buy Fox News, just 21st Century. Has it bought the network? I know the Devil said he's just keeping news and sport

    Ah, man. So, is that fourteen new episodes total, or thirteen new episodes with the one yanked away from us from season one, added?
