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.
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.

Mark Jackson as Isaac
Chad L. Coleman as Klyden, Bortus’ mate
Norm Macdonald as the voice of Yaphit

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you read this, I am preparing for a run of shows that is going to keep my nights busy for the entire week and this is coming after a few consecutive nights in a row already so with that being said there is no way that I will be watching this tonight. I’m going to DVR it and see what its like because as I noted in the trailer post, I felt that it did look like it MIGHT be interesting. I also said that I wasn’t sure about investing my time into yet another show because while Science Fiction is my thing I am not sure about a Comedy Drama one. Will you be watching? Let me know down in the comments section below.
