"The oft-overlooked sci-fi comedy gem Galaxy Quest gets a lot right; a whip-smart take on science fiction tropes and nerd fandoms and a genuinely fun sci-fi adventure tale beyond the meta-commentary, but above all, the film absolutely nailed the casting. So naturally, if anybody's going to pick up the Galaxy Quest mantle, it would be foolish not to bring back as many actors as possible.

Dean Parisot‘s 1999 cult classic lined up Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell, Tony Shalhoub, Tim Allen, and Daryll Mitchell as the ensemble cast of a beloved sci-fi series who have to assume their roles when they get launched into space in a real-life intergalactic adventure. Amazon has been developing a Galaxy Quest series since 2015, but the project took a hit when Alan Rickman passed away in early 2016 and didn't start picking up steam again until Amazon recruited The League‘s Paul Scheer to take over scriptwriting duties on the reinvention of the beloved film…"

I like the Orville, guilty pleasure.

I have to agree Lloyd … like I said before, I wasn't expecting Shakespeare. Just some light entertainment that appeals to my predilection for Sci-fi.

'The Orville' would be much better if Seth MacFarlane's not in it. He may be a comedic genius but he's not an actor.

Since I'm not a fan of Galaxy Quest I really don't care either way about this new show.
