The Trailer for Fox’s ‘The Orville’ Looks Great… Right Up Until Seth MacFarlane Opens His Mouth

Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville is coming to Fox whether we like it or not. We now have a trailer for the show, and to be fair, the show itself looks great. The problems start when MacFarlane opens his mouth and reminds us all that his jokes are very much stuck in what passed for edgy humor twenty years ago.

Toilet seat jokes! Men and women are different! Hilarious.

I’m still going to try and give the show a shot, because I like the premise. The cast looks great too (Scott Grimes is in it — he played recurring character Jimmy O’Rourke on Republic of Doyle). But I keep going back to the fact that Seth MacFarlane is super gross, and I get pulled out of it.

I guess we’ll find out how it goes when the show premieres later this year on Fox.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
