Yeah like in the last Indiana Jones movie when Shia asks Indy "you're a teacher?" and Indy replies "part-time." and the trailer had this great take where Indy said "part-time" in an awesome way but then the take they actually used had him saying it in a really weird kinda wussy way.

I think I whispered, "What the gently caress?" in the theater when that happened.

My local listings have the show airing Sundays at 5:00 and the same episode again at 8:00. Weird! Maybe they're scheduling it like that to account for afternoon NFL games going (really really) long? I'm on the West Coast, so at least I can be pretty sure that games will be over by 8!

That sounds like you're just seeing the listing for the east coast and West coast feeds

I thought that at first, but the (over-the-air broadcast) schedule lists the same channels for both airings, for me:

"Aren't your species incredibly racist?"

That's a really natural thing to say and a subtle way of introducing a character trait

To be fair, it led straight into, "What are you doing here if you're so racist?"

I'm kind of wondering if they're maybe lying about their species being all-male. Maybe female babies are known to happen and are a source of great shame or something.

Bortus is angry with Klyden not because he "lied" about being male, but that he felt that he needed to hide the truth of his past once he discovered it.

This was a good swerve, by the way, because I expected Bortus to make the former point and was wincing in preparation for the distaste of the "surprise trans" issue. So it was nice when it turned out he was mad about the latter point.

I want them to do a World War 2 simulation on the holodeck and have Scott Grimes be wearing a patch that says "Malarkey" on it. Like when Richard Speight wore a "Muck" nametag on Jericho.

Edit: Just discovered that the real-life Malarkey just died at the end of last month at age 96.

There should be a special episode, Where Orville is the competent team sent to correct mistakes of a truly bottom-of-the-barrel Union ship.

Do you think Halston Sage had to have the Alara prosthetics on under that bandage and hat? For authenticity?

Last night's episode was good, but it was less good than some of the other episodes. I think one of the problems I had was that the voting system, as described, was a little too much tell-not-show and invited all the, "Wait, how does that work?" questions people have been having. Like, they had the cold open, where the guys get downvoted into oblivion, but later have the public defender take several minutes to explain everything we saw already. I think the concept might have been more intriguing had they removed some of the exposition.

I liked the clothes with the double lapels and quadruple-knotted ties! And how the stuff they replicated on the ship didn't have that, maybe because the intel report missed it.

Ehhhh. That wasn't a *bad* show, but it wasn't anything special either. No real insights about Dr. Finn, Isaac, no plot twists about the planet or it's people, no funnies except the gloryhole bit.

So far most weeks of The Orville have been like a good episode of Next Generation with a splash of comedy added. This was like a filler TNG episode with nothing else.

Agreed, on all points.

Apparently FOX decided not to air the season finale of the Orville. They are reportedly cutting the season after the penultimate episode and airing the finale as part of season 2.

I know it wasn't a cliffhanger but WTF

also, I imagine there will be some cosmetic changes in season 2 so it might stand out oddly.




Weird.

Classic FOX. Didn't they do this with a bunch of the early seasons of The Simpsons, too? Was that so they could have some stuff to air before that year's Treehouse of Horror episode?

Did anyone else notice lowercase "nm" in the lower left corner of the screen during one of the shots where she was alone on the bridge?

Yep. I thought it was a weird watermark, at first. (It's raining and my antenna doesn't do so hot when it's raining.) Shows up in at least two shots in that scene:
