Running at 3 seasons it takes a like at the star trek franchise with quite a few guest actors and actresses taking guest spots including the person's who played Cassidy yates.... Deep space 9 Dr phlox...........enterprise Dr zimmerman.voyager Dianna troi.......next gen
Some of the characters in the show are very similar to star trek Issac....data Bortus...worf
The union of planets ..is clearly the federation and the fleet is obviously star fleet The enemy or main enemy in season 2, are the kaylons, a robotic anti biotic race and the same as Isaac,who is sent to the Orville to understand humans
The kaylons also and wait for it are possibly the same as the role of the cyclone in battlestar galactica Late 1970a where reptilian race created the cylon centurions thousands of years before they came into contact with the colonies, in this case the cylon robots over three the reptilian masters and wiped them out, the connection here is that the humanoids who created the kaylons were also exterminated ,by the robotic Kaylons, they have have no physical similarities to the cylon s but the premise is the same. The other enemy Are the krill nearly similar to the jem hadar deep space 9. In an early episode season 2 The union fleet is being slaughtered by the kaylons, and is only saved by the krill you see the kaylons as a common threat,funnily enough this scene is very similar to the one where captain sisko is trying to recapture deep space 9 ,and is saved by the klingons when siskos fleet is taking a beating
The captain of the Orville is ed Mercer a previously fast promoting union officer who went into freefall When he found his wife in bed with a blue alien on heat, also on the bridge is joined ex wiife and exec, who got Mercer the command of the ship,after feeling guilty. For her actions they sort things out and they get on great, also There's the brilliant pilot and the young security chief from a planet whose gravity is about 6 times of earth And is like superwoman but can't fly, but she hurls bad guys across the room and so on
Being American made there is a episode where Isaac is racially abused and hated by some of the crew because his spieces nearly wiped union the bit where he saved the union really doesn't come into it he gets to commit suicide but is saved by the chief engineer,who ever heard of a robot trying kill himself,also the ships doctor were in a relationship with a robot, yes don't go there,there's a race which is also clearly same sex, in this make and anti women and the males mocluns reproduce by laying on its egg ,when the baby turns out to be a girl there's uproar because the mocluns only have boys and they correct the procedure by turning the girl into a boy, in total disgust to the union crew, the series is very good and in cases funny,but if your sensitive to racism,bigotry, homophobia, anti moclun women then be advised. its there. also there's gelatinous crew member with an attitude,and a bigoted navigator who hates issac
Can't add much to my review of season one except to reiterate that The Orville proves that it's still possible to produce excellent and thoughtful science fiction despite the best efforts of Disney to prove otherwise. Seth McFarlan is known as a comedic writer and there is some humor here and it is very well done, but this isn't a comedy, it's an extremely well written and produced action show that, unlike the current crop of Star Wars drek, is hopeful of the future and populated with very likable characters that you can relate to and care about. If you're a sci-fi fan or not I highly recommend The Orville, it's smart tv in an age where that's a rare thing.
Again 400 years into the future, aboard starship The Orville captained by Seth MacFarlane's Captain Ed Mercer. Its mission is largely to seek and assess hitherto undiscovered planets. The three hundred on board reflect some of the lifeforms encountered, appearances often startling but (mainly) all living in harmony.
This is Seth MacFarlane's creation - he not only the star, but often writing and directing. His influence is everywhere - mischievously parodying other offerings in the genre but also masterminding scripts that are far more than at first seems. Some of those planets visited contain attitudes to be deplored (genocide; slavery; machines in danger of taking over; females regarded as inferior - if tolerated at all). In fact thoughts are provoked about our own planet's record on these and other matters.
Special effects are terrific, including an area on board where one can request simulations of programmed times and places - ideal therapy for those feeling the strain.
Critics have been sniffy, viewers full of praise. Episodes are inventive, frequently heading in unexpected directions. Often there is excitement - enemies most formidable, threat of danger real. Some are surprisingly moving. Others ingeniously interweave matters most serious with moments hilarious. A fine cast helps make it all work. Fans will have their favourites, robot Isaac no doubt often high on the list.
Season 1 was great. For much of the way Season 2 is even more so. (Fans will make up their own minds about the final two episodes, they for some perhaps not quite in the same league.)
Thanks go to all involved for so many hours of enjoyment. Thanks also to the enthusiastic reviewers alerting me to a show otherwise missed.
I love The Orville but watching season 2 a second time I find disk 4 has issues. About 10 minutes or so in episode 12 has a white haze appearing on top of the image for a few seconds then it keeps disappearing and coming back. The disk is clean, no marks so maybe it's dvd rot setting in. I only bought it in Nov 2020 so less than a year old but I find nowhere on here to get it exchanged so I will have to buy it elsewhere. WH Smith have seasons 1 & 2 boxed set so I'm going for that. At least with them I can take it back and get it swapped. Not so with amazon. 5 stars for the series.
It's not dvd rot. The disk looks OK and I have the same issue with the set from WH Smith. I searched online and found reviews on amazon.ca stating that there is a production issue. It seems to vary but most people seem to have issues with disk 4, season 1 or 2. So this second set is going back.
The Orville started off as a Sci-Fi comedy. It took Star Trek: The Next Generation and added Seth MacFarlane's sense of humor. Over time, the show focused less on humor and more on light drama in a Science Fiction setting. The comedy was still there, but it wasn't as broad, and it wasn't quite as over the top. The stories were really, really good, the characters were engaging, and the cast was outstanding.
Season 2 saw the show improving in almost all facets. Better stories, better writing, better drama - it just got better all around. And it was just a lot of fun to watch. The Orville is a wildly entertaining show.
The Season 2 DVD looks great. No, it doesn't have the same picture quality as blu ray, but it is a well mastered DVD set with very clean picture quality. Yes, a blu ray release would be nice, but the DVD set is very well done and is most certainly worth purchasing.
Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation who have a good sense of humor will love this show. Hell, they DO love this show! This is what Trek fans had waited for since DS9 went off the air. If you're on the fence, the price is right. Try it out - it's a wildly entertaining show.
Seth McFarlane continues to improve both with his writing & plotting of the show. If you love Trek in all it's diversity then you have to give this show a chance. Not being the greatest fan of Family Guy (but loving American Dad) I was hesitant to begin with but the guy LOVES Trek. More importantly he understands it &, frankly, is far better at avoiding the mawkish, twee-ness that the old writers frequently fell back on. It is nowhere near as winsome or cloying as the older Trek franchises but stays true to the ideals of the original shows. I'm not your average Trek fan however; for me DS9 & Enterprise are by far the best of the lot with Discovery a close runner up so if you prefer your Trek old style you may dislike McFarlane's approach but I'm really hoping the show continues. A huge plus for me is the fact he dumps the awful 'jazz & bratpack' music that always seems to get slotted into the shows too; he does acknowledge that music moved on after the 50's! Long live The Orville.
You could watch this with no prior knowledge of Star Trek, but it feels like you'd be missing something. The first episode recaps the characters enough that you can keep in without researching the first season... But it's a fun ride, I'm down with binging them all.
The second season finds the crew's chemistry together smoother, the jokes and humor less forced. There are callbacks to the previous season, adding a layer of continuity and character depth unexpected for something that seems originally pitched as, "Hey, let's do Star Trek but with hookers, blow, and fart jokes." Thank you to whoever greenlighted that drunk frat boy idea; it's become one of my favorite shows.
Some of the episodes show a marked departure from the inspiration, while others seem to be ST:TNG episodes redux. (Barkley's porn addiction, Data's study of human relationships, and more). Under the guise of humor that lured people in with the trailer, it's developed into an all-too-serious, all-too-relevant exploration of the flaws in our society. More, please.
