I like the comedy aspect, however that said, if it was a serious show it could be even better

But is it, to you, The Orville, or Star Trek in all but name?

To me it's the latter, at least thus far.

I think so, I wonder if it was a serious show would the trek owners be more worried or if they would try claim infringement

There's got to be at least a gentleman's agreement among some big shots not to do so, in my opinion, or we'd have seen one already.

could be.

look how they shut down that axanar thing, although Axanar shot themselves in the foot the way they went about things, and fucked it for a lot as well.

shame as prelude looked epic.

JM1776 wrote:The only comedy I currently recommend is You're the Worst. It concerns a narcissistic writer and deeply disturbed/sexually promiscuous publicist who hook up and then gradually discover to their mutual horror that they genuinely care for each other—each in their own twisted way, of course.

Good news: No laugh track.

It's the kind of series you'll either love or despise. I do both, and won't take it personally if you say, "Dude ... it sucks."

You may want to give it a go, though.

Start from the beginning, if possible. Too much has happened to jump right in.

(Oh ... while they're both extremely intelligent, the man, wonder of wonders, is actually more so, herein.)

Got around to watching this 3 days ago and loved it so much I watched the entire first season that night.
About to start season 3 already

Glad you're enjoying it.

Certain elements remind me of myself and my ex.

I'll throw my hat in. I think the Orville is Star Trek in all but name. I'm glad it took the comedic route however as it wasn't Star Trek. It has become it own thing and I am thankful for that. Meanwhile I'm also hoping studio execs from CBS catch on that a new Star Trek is more than past due. Terrifying heard through the grapevine an animated Trek series was going to be made by the people who are doing Teen Titans Go, but there's no evidence and I'm praying that's just a rumor.
