The Orville: A Familiar Stranger With Jokes

This is such an interesting balance to Star Trek: Discovery… as though the ethos of these two shows have somehow been swapped.

This is light and comedic and trots old territory in a fresh way, and Star Trek: Discovery has gone off boldly where Star Trek hasn’t really gone before.

That said, I am enjoying this show’s humor and familiarity, even though it is absolutely NOT Star Trek.

Forgive me, but it is impossible not to make the comparison.
