Fellas… I'm not really cognisant of American laws, does the Disney buys Fox thing mean that the Mouse now owns the Orville?

He was a friendly manlet supernerd that was great at his job but couldn't into women no matter how much he tried until he accidentally made a holowaifu. No way could you write hime out. Wesley would take some of his time.

I don't think being friendly is much of a character trait since that's what people expect most of the time and also being shit with woman is certainly not make a character do.

I wish the writers had let Geordi be snarky more often. When they did, Burton could really deliver those lines. Geordi could have been a much more interesting character.

Troi: "What happened to all the people?"

Word: "War?"

No, Geordi is fine. You have to remember that some of the writers (and a chunk of the audience in 1990) served on naval vessels. Not everyone on a real naval vessel is some complicated asshole with a personality. Some guys are just good positive engineers who are optimistic and cheery. Geordi is very much a military engineer.

Further, the character is very similar to Levar Burton's Reading Rainbow persona. He enjoys explaining shit to autistic aliens or robots or borg.

Contrast him with a 'three-dimensional' engineer character like Chief Tyrol from nuBSG, who is just an unlikeable asshole who is erratic and unrealistic and suddenly a Cylon. Geordi is the better character and not just because he's more positive, but because his reactions are more real.

see I wouldn't have much of an issue with this if he had something to do other then doing his job which we rarely get thus leaving me able to sum up his character like I did.

You seem to be confused. It's not about muh right vs left false dichotomy. McFarlane is intelligent and mostly sensible. The true enemies aren't the ones voting "the other party".

Maybe you're too young to remember, but they've used "the left" and "the right" historically for their purposes instinctively.

The only ones who pick sides are the fools in the herd.

> just an unlikeable asshole who is erratic and unrealistic

To be fair it's sort of a point of the show that everyone is fucking stressed out to the point of near-breaking (or breaking) by the whole genocide and constant pursuit and exhaustion and rationing and endless paranoia thing, and that human civilisation is sustained by only the thinnest thread. What military order and decorum they do manage to keep is highlighted in contrast to this and is one of the reasons the Galactica becomes the nexus of sanity while random other ships are turning to cannibalism or whatever. They could all be much bigger assholes (like some they encounter) under the circumstances and it wouldn't be especially weird.

Completely agree with everything else you said (including the Cylon asspull). A+ post

if you start with The Orville, you probably won't appreciate what comparisons you can make Star Trek; it will just be a somewhat funny space show with serious themes

if you do watch at least some Trek (don't have to do every episode, but TOS, TNG, and DS9 all have their must-see episodes) you'll appreciate that some episodes are done in the styles of the different shows, appreciate plot developments in a certain light, etc

in short, if you aren't familiar with what it's parodying, it won't be so much a parody. And you certainly won't appreciate that this parody is a better example of the franchise than the last 3 series in it

Well I watched a couple of episodes now and I somewhat enjoyed it, even if the cucking in the pilot turned me off at first.

I was wrong to think it was pure satire/comedy and to compare it to RD. The best way I can describe it is "what if Stargate was Startrek?"

Because seriously the feel of this show is a lot like SG-1 to me. It's campy and it has "serious" themes sometimes but it doesn't take itself too seriously most of the time. There are aliens speaking english without explanation, aliens that look exactly like humans without explanation etc etc. It even has a Teal'c.

Nobdy claimed he was. Basically he was a product of that time, and tht's when everyone was fairly racist by modern standards. Hell prior to WWII eugenics had more supporters in the USA than Germany - most of the arguments and policies the Germans used for defining the characteristics of, identifying, and justifying the rounding up of millions of people were fundamentally based on American scientific arguments from decades earlier. Just read popular American literature at the time, H P Lovecraft, Rober E. Howard and more authors all had rigidly defined racial characteristics ingrained in their works. IT was a normal part of living in those days to think in those ways.

The only thing anyone said is that Walt Disney was not a Nazi. And he wasn't, that claim is accurate. That does not conflate to mean he was an utterly modern thinker by today's standards trapped in some bygone era.

It says something that Walt Disney's famous "racist" work Song of the South is about the tamest thing I've ever seen. It depicts a black man being happy and pleasant, telling folk tales and singing songs. Wow. What a fucking Nazi he must have been to come up with that. A little insensitive by modern standards, maybe. But not the product of a man who seemed to hold any grudge against the black folk.

That's exactly the thing they take issue with, how happy he is. Any depiction of slavery that doesn't show the evil white people brutally whipping the strong Afrikangs 6 million times, while cackling and counting the plantation profits, is haram. It undermines critical race theory, makes the niggers less enthusiastic about reparations, and the whites less inclined to feel guilt..

The explanation if my memory serves is that the Goa'uld can't be arsed to learn other languages so they just force everyone to speak english. A language from thousands of years AFTER the Goa'uld where driven off the planet, from a region thousands of miles from where the Goa'uld where hanging around (ancient egypt) and that evolved as a mishmash of several other european languages over thousands of years.

The original movie did it much better, with the locals speaking a decendant of ancient Egyptian and the aliens having their own language.

TL:DR The Stargate show was a lazy, half assed mess that should be forgotten.

Yeah, I used to think the everybody speaking English thing was lame too… then I watched STD's first season, and realized no, it's absolutely necessary. You just can't expect most actors to competently deliver huge blocks of lines in some language they know nothing about. The end result isn't worth it.

Moonrune subtitles work because it's the actors' native language. They can emote and express themselves with a great degree of precision, and as a result their acting is stronger in the language, since they understand every word and what they're supposed to emphasize. Klingon subtitles wouldn't work because the only people practiced enough in Klingon to command it as well as they do English are too autistic to be placed in front of a camera. If the actors don't have that proficiency, they're effectively memorizing gibberish instead of lines, and are unable to give their delivery with any nuance. This is why Trek is in English, and it's for a similar reason that Trek aliens always have rubber foreheads; if the lower half of the face were obscured rather than the upper, it would be much harder for them to perform facial expressions.

Interesting news and possibly a bad sign for the future of The Orville:

>Family Guy and The Orville creator Seth MacFarlane is leaving his longtime studio home at 20th Century Fox Television after more than two decades for a giant nine-figure television deal at NBCUniversal Content Studios. No one would comment but I hear the pact is for five years and worth at least $200 million.
