"The Orville" - Seth MacFarlane's Star Trek spoof
« on: May 15, 2017, 19:14:59 »
I'm wondering if this will be "Galaxy Quest"-lite.  I loved Family Guy and the first Ted movie, but I'll be cautiously optimistic for this show.

Fox just released the first trailer for the show, which stars MacFarlane and Adrianne Palicki as a divorced couple who are basically Kirk and Spock on a brand new spaceship with a suitably crazy crew. Here’s the trailer.

I had a chuckle - reminds me of "Down Periscope".
