So ‘The Orville’ Looks Entertaining, But I Don’t Trust It

So at San Diego Comic Con, Fox premiered a new trailer for The Orville, Seth Macfarlane’s new science fiction comedy. It looks fun, it looks exciting, it looks really entertaining… and I don’t trust it for a second. You see, I remember the earlier trailer we got back in May which started the same way… right up until MacFarlane opened his mouth.

I mean, I’ll still give the show a shot. I’ll tune into an episode or two, but it comes down to something simple — Seth MacFarlane hasn’t really been funny for the last fifteen years (at least), and continues to write and perform in a mold which is outdated and (frankly) annoying to watch. We’ll see what happens, but I don’t have a lot of faith in his abilities at this point.

I guess we’ll all find out when the show premieres September 10th 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.”
