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hasn’t really been funny for the last fifteen years (at least), and continues to write and perform in a mold which is outdated and (frankly) annoying to watch.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.

This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”

    For various personal reasons, I hate the man, and wish him to roast in the burning fire of a thousand suns.
    Yes, I find myself sadly intrigued by the show, and I’m going to watch, at least the first episode, despite him.
