I have never written an IMDb review before. I may never write an IMDb review again. But after watching the premiere of the Orville, and reading all the harsh critical reviews, it's very hard not to want to speak up for this show. I mean, come on, do you guys remember the first season of the Next Generation? I mean, do you really remember it? Have we really come to the point where a show is declared dead when it does not achieve absolute perfection by the end of the first episode? Do you know how many great shows we would have missed out on if that we the attitude we had always taken?After watching the first episode of the Orville, my honest opinion was, yes, there were some things they could have done better. Yes, the plot was ultimately forgettable, and many elements of the show did seem generic. And in all honesty, I would take a new episode of Red Dwarf over this premiere any day of the week. But even that being said, I thought the show was genuinely funny a lot of the time, while not being overbearing with it's humor, which was in and of itself refreshing. I thought the characters seemed interesting, and there was some good potential for how they might develop. And I genuinely felt the sense of hope and optimism they were trying to get across that has been so sorely lacking from science fiction these days.So in the end, based on the first episode, and only the first episode, 8/10, but I'm hoping I can update this review later with some additional positivity as the season progresses.
