The stuff I watched was from season 2.

More importantly how will this be affected by the Disney deal?

Doubt if Disney would pay Seth Macfarlane he does like taking shots at them.

Well I've suggested my mate restart at S2 after he jacked it in after a couple of episodes of S1.


S2 is clearly superior.

I think they can cope with that, he must make them a decent wedge of money

There is a lot of show merchandising coming out, they wouldn't do that if the show was ending

The show is fun to watch, s1 is not perfect but has some good episodes and improves from the pilot. I find it so much better than STD aka discovery (the show could of been great and Pike was great, apparently the show writers were unhappy as it was taking away focus from the "messiah Burnham")

In the Orville, the characters (even the minor ones) tend to get more development and you feel you know them a lot more than the random discovery bridge crew

It was all that was on NOWTV no season 1 eps. Don't really like the bridge design or the ship designs

Apparently Fox will no longer be releasing any TV series on Blu-ray.

Well that makes sense doesn't it? The normal cycle would be September 2019, hard to hit if they haven't actually made a start yet.

I found the majority of this year crap, the first half was awful, full of 'relationship dramas', count me awkward but I watch SciFi for SciFi stories not how the captain and the first officers relationship is doing this week. When it came back after the break it got good again with proper scifi stories, like the sociological one about the moclan girls (sounds like a sitcom!) but then just watched the penultimate episode and it was a weak 'relationship' taking the worst actor and giving her a dual role!

I still don't see Seth M being a good fit with Disney unless they keep the fox channel running.

Questions

Is Disney paying to produce the The Orville season 3

If so raises the question why would they want to put money into this show that Trekkies love and only love because proper Star Trek Discovery is crap. (And if Star Trek did become good again, those viewers would leave this show is droves)

They also have their own flagship Sci Fi to get onto TV which you think is where the money should be going.
