The Orville – Hit or miss?

Okay, I was ready for this to be really fun.  I’m a huge fan of Galaxy Question, so some tongue-in-cheek humor at Star Trek’s expense sounded like fun.

So far?  So-so.  Seth McFarland and Adrianne Palicki play off each other as a divorced couple forced to work together running an exploratory vessel.  I like Penny Johnson Jirard (think the Captain in Castle) as the omniscient doctor.  The rest of the cast hasn’t really clicked and the story line could use some help.

Still I continue to root for the series to pick up some traction.  Moving from Jerry Lewis slapstick to a more subtle Jerry Seinfeld approach might help.

Meanwhile, I’ll keep watching and keep hoping.
