Great flick. Well written, acted and funny. Doesn't try to be pretentious. Just an entertaining way to spend an hour and a half.
Plus it has Alan Rickman in it. He's awesome as the depressed out of work, Shakespearian actor.

Actually, the whole cast plays their parodied selves awesome.

The Orville would do well to take queues from his movie.

It wasn't horrible, but you wouldn't be blown away by it either. The first episode was very much an intro episode, introducing all the characters and setting up the basic storyline. To anyone that thinks this is going to be a star trek parody, I'd say its more of a star trek homage. You do have your typical seth macfarlane style humor, but this episode was rather tame in the joke department. There were some funny moments tho. The "holodeck" scene for instance :rofl:

Definitely not gonna write this off after the first episode, so i'll continue watching unless it actually does get really bad.
