An unexpected science fiction tv show that brings out the adventure and comedy with a unique bunch of characters. I love Seth MacFarlane as the Captain with his own complications and personal issues which have plagued him. Love the characters and the way they were portrayed, and you can feel the comedic punches from MacFarlane already thrown into the mix. The SciFi part is good, just enjoy the ride, I for one really enjoyed the first episode and seriously can't wait for more from The Orville.


I've seen several opinions, but I wanted to check it out myself. Personally I THOROUGHLY enjoyed!


Trailer released, looks very promising: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5691552/videoplayer/vi511752473


Best Sci-Fi series this season! Like any good science fiction series, it starts with two episodes meant to introduce the characters. After that, you get some very interesting stories. Capt. Ed Mercer is in some way a little bit like Michael Scott from "The Office US". His Ex-wife and 1st Officer Cmdr. Kelly Grayson is very interesting. She's broken her husband's heart, but seems to still love him in some way. She's also very capable. LaMarr and Malloy are a hilarious duo. They pilot the ship together and have incredibly funny conversations. Bortus, who's got his husband in the ship, is a very dutiful officer with an interesting background and home life. Kitan is a young bridge officer who only got the position as chief of security because people from her planet don't join the military often (she says so herself). She's extremely strong and can open any jar of pickles in the known universe (you'll get that after watching a few episodes). Dr Finn has a humour as dry as Mars' surface. I'm surprised she's not British, she could very well be. Isaac is the absolute Anti-Data. The president of his home world could be Skynet. His Android race considers any carbon life as inferior. And they don't mind telling you that. Isaac has taken the position on the Orville to study human behavior. Or their weaknesses. Like any artificial life form, he's got problems understanding jokes and slang. I like him and I don't fully trust him. Last but not least, there's Yaphit, a jelly life form whose favourite hobby it is to annoy Dr Finn with his flirting. So far, there've been great stories which got you thinking and had fun and action. I can already see the potential for the development of more surprising and serious stories, running gags and maybe even some longer lasting story arcs. You can see the love Seth MacFarlane put in this project. I'm not that often this enthusiastic about a TV series, but here, it's absolutely justified. (No) Update after episode 6: No need to update my review. The show just continues being great :-) (No) Update after season 1 is finished: This serial will become a TV legend like Star Trek TNG has become one. There'll be a time when fans will do fan fiction serials in the Orville's universe.


More Star Trek than Star Trek: Discovery


This is such an interesting balance to Star Trek: Discovery... as though the ethos of these two shows have somehow been swapped. This is light and comedic and trots old territory in a fresh way, and Star Trek: Discovery has gone off boldly where Star Trek hasn't really gone before. That said, I am enjoying this show's humor and the familiarity of it even though it is absolutely NOT Star Trek. Forgive, but it is impossible not to make the comparison.


Seriously this show has the soul of the Star Trek series, I genuinely thought they were launching two shows. It has a goofy feel yet it turned out to have a serious tone and human feel as well, with amazing characters and I'm loving it. Couldn't picture anyone but Seth McFarlane in this role! I can't wait for more episodes, and I hope they announce another season soon seriously can't wait for more, it just feels that good!


Quite enjoyable with a very strong star trek feel. sadly this feels more like star trek than star trek discovery, and is probably more enjoyable. Discovery is good in its own way but has no feeling of star trek to me at all. This show however has a very strong feeling of nostalgia, even though its a parody, or perhaps because its a parody.


First season was good. Some funny episodes, some ingenious concepts, some interesting adventures. The second season is a pile of trash. Constantly trying to be political or have a deeper meaning than actually achieved. Overall turns into an unfunny, not interesting boring drama. Really disappointing!


I need to understand, how this show is so poorly rated on RT or Metacritic. It's surprisingly good and such a joyous voyage.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
