    I watched with my boys. They both really got a kick out of it. That's good enough for me
    Fresh, not from concentrate.

    I enjoyed it, I see where people are getting hung up but i've always wanted a trek type show where the cast didn't have sticks in their butts. If this show find it's voice, it'll be a big hit.

    Watched it last night and had fun. I'll give it a chance and watch a few more episodes.

    I liked it well enough to watch a few more episodes and then decide. There's just not much science fiction on TV these days, like TNG or the reboot BSG. This doesn't come close to those, but it has its merits. I love that the Orville is an actual model in some of the shots.

    I think as long as they keep the crew as the wacky ones and everybody else plays it straight (including the plots) they might just pull it off .... Kinda like the Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein formula .

    ----- When we see plots like going to The Planet of Jeffersons then we know it's only a matter of time.

    I liked the second episode more than the first. I'll keep watching for now.

    I think the problem the show has is it's just Star Trek Lite. If they cut it to 30 minutes and amped up the wacky (like Galaxy Quest or Quark or even Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein like Mikey suggested), they'd really have something. Right now, it's too mild as space adventure and as comedy to be really effective as either.
