TV Show Review

The Orville (TV Series)

Update 6th Dec 2020:

I had enjoyed both Season 1 and Season 2 and was hoping for Season 3 in 2020, unfortunately due to the pandemic the shooting got delayed. I am happy to read in Instagram that filming has started for Season 3 this week. Hope to see the show soon.

Meanwhile, last week a friend coming from the USA had brought the physical copy of The Orville comic “New Beginning” I had ordered from Amazon USA. I had fun reading it, but the story was hanging. It was a two-part story, so I ordered the second part in Kindle from Amazon India – The paper comic is not available in India.

Original Post from 2018:

I am a fan of Star Trek.

When I saw this new TV Series made by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane called “The Orville” and it was a Sci-Fi with a comedy twist I was captivated. Surprisingly, though starting slowly the series picks up speed as it progresses, and Season 1 didn’t disappoint as a lighter version of Star Trek. Adding to a familiar space exploration and alien civilization stories, each episode adds some drama due to the tension between the captain and his first officer, who happens to be his former wife.
