This is on the pay version of Hulu in the US I believe. Don't think it's been sold to any U.K. or European TV, so only illegal streams.

Thought it was excellent. I read the book some years ago but the details in my memory are sketchy enough to come to this series completely fresh.

Good news. Think I might be preferring it to The Good Wife.

Seth McFarlane's got a new show. Guess he's been watching Galaxy Quest again:



Decent cast & a few laughs there, but it's got a terrible title, looks expensive & it's on Fox, so I give it 8 episodes (shown in the wrong order) before it gets cancelled...

I think a combination of Red Dwarf and Galaxy Quest is enough on the "lets mock the Star Trek view of the Universe." I'm prepared to give it a go, I just don't really see that it has legs.

Looks cheap and cheesy to me. I'll give it a go but I predict I'll be done by three episodes.

Trailer had a few laughs in it, might have worked as a film, it isn't quite the same as Galaxy Quest. But aside from mocking silly things in Star Trek, might have been better as a Family Guy takes off Star Trek (like they did SW)

The Orville looks amazing. Love MacFarlane's humour, and the trailer made me laugh a lot. I'm sold.
I'm sure it will be cancelled.

Presumably they're the funniest bits of the first ten episodes? Is it going to be an hour or a 30 minute show?

I really hope The Orville is good but the trailer was disappointing & it's been put in a horrible time-slot, up against established shows (This is Us & Scandal) which both have huge audiences...

Also strange to see that most of the Networks are hardly starting any of their new shows in September, but leaving them until mid-season?

I have no idea what on earth is going on in American Gods but the picture in 4K HDR on my 65" Samsung is outstanding.

Looks like this has got the go ahead. Anyone checked out the first episode?
The cast looks reasonable enough.
