I've seen topics for other things here, but haven't seen any one here talkin about the Orville. To which some on the internet seem to think of it as the true inheritor of Star Trek's legacy, while trying to stay original. It's not a total parody, but when you have the crew doing the same stupid things any of us do either in real life or in a role playing game. Seth McFarlane has this show going over pretty well.

A few of the humans yes. I remember Ivanova being Jewish, Sheridan said he believed in a little of every thing. Garibaldi was Agnostic, Franklin was some new wave called a Foundationist. With Commander Sinclair saying he was taught by Jesuits, which pretty much explained his beliefs right there.
A very diverse group.

I liked the pilot, apart from all the dick jokes. It was too much for me, it broke my ability to suspend disbelief. If the dick jokes are gone, I might give it another try.

How toned down is the comedy, is it still pretty dudebro?
I'm a fan of sci-fi. I moved on to Fate from Star Frontiers and I'm wondering if that was a good idea. My blog is at
