Sorry y’all, but I’m throwing in the towel on The Orville. I wanted to like it. I really did. However, the imitation Star Trek fused with a Family Guy shtick simply didn’t grab me. Put culinarily, that’s like smothering a finely-marbled ribeye steak from the Dollar Tree with your favorite can of Chef Boyardee then calling it gourmet. It’s just… not. It’s cheap, sloppy, and the antithesis of fulfilling.
I so miss the days when there was actually good sci-fi on TV. Oh well. Guess I’ll just have to stick with my books!
Cheers, and until next time… Ian
