…Sci-Fi Comedy Teases Alien Foes.

"Fox has released a new trailer for its upcoming comedy space series The Orville, from (and starring) Seth MacFarlane as a down-and-out Planetary Union officer who is given command of a new ship. The trailer, which debuted at San Diego Comic-Con, gives a better look at some of the alien creatures and villains that the crew of the Orville will be facing, and I have to say, I'm pleased to see so many practical effects!

The pilot was directed by Iron Man‘s Jon Favreau, which is maybe why the production values looks pretty darn good. My concern is that the series is an hourlong comedy, which is hard to get away with. A thirty minute drama can be a great thing, but an hourlong comedy (and based on this trailer, the show is leaning in hard to the comedy aspect) is hard to sustain…."

I'm giving it a miss. I enjoyed the original Galaxy Quest too much and I never found Seth McF all that funny.

What i have seen thus far i have been liking this.
The new trailer doesn't turn me from it.
I will go into it expecting exactly what it is. Seriousness is not one of those things.
I think i will enjoy watching it.

I don't plan on watching it. It looks utterly stupid which considering it's MacFarlane is more than a bit redundant. :)

I'll try to watch the first episode … and see how I feel from there …
