This week on The Flyby, we’re increasing our altitude a little to rejoin the crew of the USS Orville as they come around again for a new season. The Orville was a show that our intrepid hosts had a bit of a love/hate relationship with, as sometimes it really recaptured that Star Trek feeling that has been missing from the actual “Star Trek” properties for quite a while now, and at other times…well…it just became a discount Family Guy in space with awkward, inappropriate humor and terrible sets and effects.
Still we closed out last season with enough goodwill to give its next run a chance, and now we get to find out if Seth MacFarlane and his team have adjusted course away from some of the gravity wells pulling the ship down last season or if they’re just going to keep ramming the ship into asteroid fields each week. Considering the first episode focuses on Bortus’ bathroom habits…signs point to more ramming.
So tonight at 10 PM ET tune in right here for our discussion of the first two episodes of Season 2 of The Orville, and whatever other fun things there are to talk about in the world of entertainment this week!
