It was about a month ago that I shared the SDCC Trailer for “The Orville” TV Series and if you didn’t catch that post just click HERE so you are all caught up. That series premieres tonight on Fox at 8pm (but those outside of the NYC metro region will need to check their own listings). The Official Series poster is below and I’ve reprinted the premise and casting for the interested.
Another trailer that made an appearance during the Comic Con International: San Diego was for this new Science Fiction show called “The Orville”. Its a creation of Seth MacFarlane who is most famously known for both “Family Guy” and “American Dad”.
The Premise: The Orville is set on the titular U.S.S. Orville (ECV-197), a mid-level exploratory vessel 400 years in the future.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks like it MIGHT be interesting but I am not too sure of how invested I can get in another show because I am already risking running low on DVR space based on The CW Network’s bevy of shows that I’m recording. I love Science Fiction of course but not sure if I really need a half comedy and half dramatic presentation of such a thing. What did you readers think of the trailer? Did it make you curious enough to program your DVR to binge a few episodes? Let me know down in the comments section below.
