Back in September, I shared the trailer for the second season of “The Orville” that was shown at the few months prior SDCC. If you missed that for some reason since we do post quite often these days, you might want to click HERE. Tonight the series returns for its second season and will send us into 2019 with some high-flying Science Fiction adventure. Let’s look at the poster, premise and casting once more.

Fox’s “The Orville” Season 2 Trailer from SDCC

Since a lot of my fellow friends in Geek all seem to love this Seth Macfarlane space series “The Orville”, I wanted to lend a little support because we are fans of Science Fiction here on PiercingMetal.com anyway. Now I should mention that this trailer first came to be released back during the Comic Con International: San Diego, but with so many films and television series to support I held back on this one. The show doesn’t air until the end of the year so a few months delay on this trailer seems fine by me. Take a look at what is to come on the shows second season.

Premise: The Orville is set on the titular U.S.S. Orville (ECV-197), a mid-level exploratory space vessel in the Planetary Union, a 25th-century interstellar alliance of Earth and many other planets.

The Cast and Characters:
Seth MacFarlane as Captain Ed Mercer
Adrianne Palicki as Commander Kelly Grayson
Penny Johnson Jerald as Doctor Claire Finn
Scott Grimes as Lieutenant Gordon Malloy
Peter Macon as Lieutenant Commander Bortus
Halston Sage as Lieutenant Alara Kitan
J. Lee as Lieutenant (later Lieutenant Commander) John LaMarr
Mark Jackson as Isaac
Jessica Szohr as Talla Keyali
Victor Garber as Admiral Halsey

Gavin Lee as Nurse Park
Mike Henry as Dann
Rachael MacFarlane as the voice of the Orville computer
Ron Canada as Admiral Tucker
Kelly Hu as Admiral Ozawa
Chris Johnson as Cassius

There were a lot of guest stars to the previous season if you can trust Wikipedia and here they are all summed up by name: Rob Lowe, Brian George, Jeffrey Tambor, Holland Taylor, Jonathan Adams, Rena Owen, Robert Knepper, Giorgia Whigham, Liam Neeson, Rico E. Anderson, Charlize Theron, James Horan, Michaela McManus, Steven Culp, Brian Thompson, Ralph Garman, Robert Picardo, Molly Hagan, Candice King, John Billingsley, Jason Alexander, Patrick Warburton, Ted Danson, Marina Sirtis

PiercingMetal Thoughts: That trailer sure looked like fun and as you can see, it’s not the kind of slapstick comedy that you might expect from Macfarlane. It’s more like a high-spirited adventure show with the occasional quip. Now I have to admit that I’ve only ever watched the first two episodes and while I enjoyed them, I just had too many other shows on my plate and being recorded by my DVR to lend space to another one. I am pretty close to being a lifelong fan of the “Star Trek” franchise and while this is something different entirely, it sure does capture the vibe of the Original Series and some of The Next Generation. Perhaps I will begin recording the second season and seeing what I can On Demand of the first because many friends have said that they love it. What about you readers? Will you be tuning in this winter for the second go round?

Dig The CW Network “Crisis On Earth-X” Crossover Trailer

We’re only a few days away from this years crossover on The CW Entertainment network and as previously noted, the crossover will hit “Supergirl”, “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Legends Of Tomorrow”. We’ve recently received a trailer for the epic event, and its presented below for your enjoyment. Then I repeated the overall premise and characters you will see over the four shows.

The Premise: Barry Allen and Iris West’s friends come to Central City for their wedding, only for the event to be disrupted by Nazi invaders from the parallel world Earth-X, including fascist doppelgängers of Barry’s allies Oliver Queen and Kara Danvers and enemy Eobard Thawne, who come to Earth-1 with a deadly agenda. In addition, the superheroes from Earth-X, including Citizen Cold (a doppelgänger of Leonard Snart) and The Ray, also arrive to help Barry and his friends to stop them. (thanks Wiki)

The Cast/Characters:
Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers/Supergirl/Kara-X/Overgirl
Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers
Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott
Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow/Dark Arrow
Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak
Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt/Mister Terrific
Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog
Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake/Black Canary
Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/Flash
Candice Patton as Iris West
Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost
Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe
Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West/Kid Flash
Tom Cavanagh as Harrison “Harry” Wells/Thawne/Dark Flash

Nick Zano as Nate Heywood/Steel
Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave
Russell Tovey as Ray Terrill/The Ray
Wentworth Miller as Leo-X/Citizen Cold
Prometheus-X, the Earth-X version of Prometheus, will appear in the episodes

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I felt that I said my peace when I showcased the poster in September, but I will repeat it once more for good measure “Last year’s “Invasion” story line was pretty good but I will have to say that I am super interested in this one since I know that Earth-X is the world in the Multiverse for the Freedom Fighters who I always enjoyed in the comics. Despite their very limited run of a series. I’ll cross my fingers that we get Uncle Sam somewhere in this or Human Bomb at least. Good characters that would make for interesting crossovers on this and future episodes. I still watch all four of the shows and am curious to see how Black Lightning will do when it makes its premiere”. What about you readers? Are you enjoying these programs and does this new crossover event pique your interest a little more after the trailer??? Let me know down below.

Tonight: “Legends Of Tomorrow” On The CW Network (10/10/2017)

Hey did you miss me? You had to know that I would be coming back with a quick summary about this evenings third season premiere of “Legends Of Tomorrow” which will air immediately after tonight’s episode of “The Flash” which has its own fourth season premiere and was discussed on THIS LINK if you missed it. If there is one thing that the New York Comic Con leaves us fans with, its a bevy of shows that are right up our alley. Down below you will see the “OFFICIAL POSTER” and I’ve snagged some Season 2 refresher and casting for you before tossing in my own thoughts on the matter. Here we go.

Season 2 Recap: In season two, with the Time Masters defeated, the team are left to guard the timeline themselves, and learn to cope in Rip’s absence after he disappears. However, they are continually plagued by the Legion of Doom, a time-travelling supervillain team led by Reverse Flash (Eobard Thawne), who has recruited past versions of Damien Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, and Leonard Snart to help him find the Spear of Destiny of Biblical fame, with which they can rewrite their fates. The team is joined by new members Amaya Jiwe / Vixen, an African superhero from 1940s superhero team the Justice Society of America, and Nate Heywood / Steel, a modern-day historian with the power to become solid metal.
