What a great show, the critics trashed it on rotten tomatoes but the audience loves it.
I just finished binge watching the first season and what a pleasant surprise, so many likable but flawed characters that make you root for all of them.
The critics seem confused as to what this show is supposed to be so trash it for not being able to put it in a box.
The Orville is a morality play , a space adventure , a workplace comedy and a sci-fi drama thats a lot of fun....by the end of season one you will be throwing your hands in the air shouting "LATCHCOMB"!

Spot on, I've really enjoyed the episodes I've seen. I think critics like to place things in neat little categories and this spills bizarrely all over the place - but it's hugely enjoyable.

Thanks for that I thought as much thankfully renewed for another series though, so something to look forward too.

I agree, been one of the best things on the box recently. Much easier to engage with it than some of the later Start Trek offerings. Rounded and complex characters and suitably wacky and off the wall to be totally believable.
