The Orville is an American science fiction comedy-drama[1][2][3] series created by and starring Seth MacFarlane that premiered on Sunday, September 10, 2017, with new episodes to air Thursdays on Fox during the 2017–18 season.[5][6] Seth MacFarlane stars as Ed Mercer, an officer in the Planetary Union's line of exploratory space vessels whose career took a downturn following his divorce, and who is given the titular ship as his first command, only to discover that his ex-wife, Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki), has been assigned to be his First Officer. Inspired by the television series Star Trek, the series tells the story of Mercer, Grayson, and the crew of the Orville as they embark on various diplomatic and exploratory missions.[7]

I've only watched two episodes so far. I like it. It feels more like Star Trek than Discovery dose. I like how its funny and stupid yet still seems like a proper show as well.
Kelly is a fox!

been with it since the debut and find it interesting. funny, serious... it's a plug at Star Trek without a doubt, but it's rather interesting how they ran with it. I guess when Seth had his paws in Cosmos that made him hungry to do a show, glad he did. however, when watching it, if you're a fan of Family Guy, be prepared for voice drops and imagining seeing an animated cast doing something with said voice and the likes. I'm glad he's running with both angles. maybe this time he'll finally get nominated

I've been kind of lukewarm on the Orville so far. I though the first few episodes were just okay, but the latest episode was awesome and I'm on board for the long-haul now. Honestly, with Seth McFarlane creating and starring in this, I was kind of expecting it to be Family Guy in space, but I just didn't find the comedy that funny at first. Strangely enough it's the sci-fi aspects of the show I like most. The comedy can actually be kind of invasive to the story line at times.

Yeah outside of the comedy, it actually feels like a serious show.

I'm a fan of the show. And since CBS has decided to screw Star Trek fans over, this is the new Star Trek in my opinion.

I'm loving this show, and I'm not a big fan of Seth McFarlane's other work. But he's created a very good show that plays a pretty decent balancing act between the serious and the humorous. It's been picked up for a second season by Fox, which is I think a first for that network and a sci fi show I like.
