With its Star Trek-inspired designs, constant quipping, and creator/star Seth MacFarlane dropping one-liners left and right throughout its trailers, it’s no wonder we all thought Fox’s new TV series The Orville was a sci-fi comedy. But reviews for the upcoming series are in, and they come with a warning: the show isn’t a comedy, but an hour-long drama interspersed with moments of levity. Well, that’s certainly unexpected. Let’s see what the critics have to say in this roundup of The Orville reviews.

If you’ve seen the TV spots for Seth MacFarlane’s new Fox series The Orville, you might think it’s another comedic romp from the creator of Family Guy and Ted. It is funny, but what the ads are not showing is that The Orville is an hour long spaceship drama that just happens to be populated with funny people (and aliens).

We’re still recovering from the insanity that is San Diego Comic-Con. Because there are so many movies and TV shows that get promoted at the massive pop culture convention, we simply don’t have the time to report on each and every one of them by attending all the panels that unfolded.

So we’ve rounded up a slew of new trailers for upcoming TV shows, both returning and new programs, ranging from revivals of Nicktoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! to freshman shows like The Orville and Future Man, returning shows like Once Upon a Time and Doctor Who, and plenty more Comic-Con TV trailers from the 2017 convention.

But FOX also unveiled trailers for the comedy series Ghosted starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson, the procedural drama 9-1-1 from creator Ryan Murphy, the medical drama The Resident with Captain America: Civil War star Emily VanCamp, and an airline comedy called LA to Vegas from executive producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.

Star Trek has been lampooned countless times, whether it’s by Saturday Night Live, Futurama or the outstanding Galaxy Quest. Now it’s getting an indirect kind of spoof, if you will, in the form of a new FOX TV series from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.
The Orville is a new one-hour sci-fi comedy series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the titular spaceship and its crew as they traverse the universe, dealing with the kind of workplace problems that come from having a crew composed of aliens and humans from different planets all aboard a single spaceship. FOX debuted The Orville trailer at their upfronts presentation today, and you can get a glimpse of the promising new show below. Read More »
