For anyone thinking of watching The Orville I would offer a counter viewpoint and say that I have enjoyed the first 2 episodes. They are not hilarious, but I did find them funny. They do a decent job of mixing the Star Trekking with humour and I don't think it's supposed to be just a comedy. Even Sou, who usually finds Seth MacFarlane's humour not to her liking has enjoyed it and lol'd for reals a couple times each episode.

I'm going to stick with it, I expect they'll get the comedy-space drama formula working even better as they get through the season.
