  • bernardthedisappointedowl

    "Hasn't been attempted"? Red Dwarf? Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy? Galaxy Quest? I like the Orville, but to claim it is the first comedy drama sci-fi is a bit of a stretch, ^oo^

  • Jeffrey Anderson

    It’s really amazing that the best and most creative person in TV and the best person hosting a late night show are both named Seth!

  • Mady Alvarez

    Seth drives me crazy and a lot of the stuff he’s done is straight up bad but.... The Orville is legitimately good. It’s funny and sweet and fascinating and is honestly one of the best pieces of sci-fi I’ve ever consumed????

    Seth Meyers is the resentful one, pissed off that his show and SNL's combined ratings still can't touch anything Seth McFarlane has done.

    I love The Orville! But it's not true that sci fi and comedy have not been combined before. Star Trek uses a lot of humor.

    SETH MACFARLAND IS DADDY. WHAT I WOULD DO WITH AN ENTIRE NIGHT WITH THAT MAN. He would probably need some pain killers, alcohol or drug of choice, Gatorade to replace allllll of that good stuff, and a wheelchair because he probably wouldn’t walk right for at least a day or two...and hey while we’re at it make it 2 wheelchairs one of each of us.

    It’s hilarious how he acts like it’s not a rip off of Star Trek. And doesn’t even mention Star Trek. I bet they tell him not to bring up Star Trek when he talks about it.
    Also it’s better than Star Trek discovery.

    When he says "hour-long", of course, what he means is "43 minutes". The other 17 minutes is advertising, which is why you'd have to be retarded to watch television. This is a great show - but watching it on TV? Ha! The very idea is hilarious.
