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

This was touched upon in a thread over on /sw/. The sale's not final yet, Disney just went over Comcast's bid. Comcast has a lot more money to throw around so chances are they'll go over Disney and end up the owners.

There's also an Orville thread here, not much to discuss in the off season. They did just finish filming episode 6 and are taking a short break.

Anyway, >>24612 this guy is right, according to Wiki. I thought Disney pulling in 55 billion was big, Comcast pulled in 84 billion. It should also be noted Comcast also own NBC.

And remember the mouse recently made another large purchase (Lucasfilm), which has been hilariously mismanaged. Disney as a whole has only just barely made back what they spent, and Lucasfilm specifically only a quarter of that.

Disney was great when it was ran by Walt Disney, the evil gnazee. Even until the 90s it produced great films.

Zionists took it over and are purposefully destroying the legacy of Disney.

I seriously hope Orville isn't going to be destroyed as well.

They do. Comcast overall has a higher networth than Disney. They could still break the deal since at 71billion Disney is already about to reach their limit while Comcast could still go higher.

Small thing but Walt wasn't a Nazi. He was accused of that in the writings of the Daily Worker, a communist rag that was around New York in the 1930s. He was in competition a cartoonist union that was linked back to Conference of Studio Unions, a communist front receiving money from the USSR. They portrayed him as an anti-semite and the 'joke' has been repeating since.

Get fucked. You have a decade worth of Trek across several series that caters to that trendy bullshit. That's not what The Orville is supposed to be. "Complex grey moral questions" that are designed to leave the viewer "stunned" are 9 times out of 10 a Jew psy-op. TNG had a few "very special episodes". TOS had one. They should be rare in Trek and part of what made Trek go to shit in the mid to late 90's was trying to make every 'morality play' episode dark and heavy. If that pisses you off, you clearly don't get it. Just let the Orville be what it is and be glad someone is trying to keep the spirit alive in these dark times.

I do. The best ending would have been for Mercer to somehow get control of the ship or disable it and capture everyone alive for the Union. This would have been more in line with their ethics and not been dark. Instead, the episode ends with Mercer killing everyone because the Krill were going to kill a bunch of farmers. The episode already took a dark turn. The mission was to learn about the Krill and somehow create understanding to bring about peace. Murdering everyone on board is counter productive. Everyones life on board was valuable, not just the children. But Americans and

M8 you need to be a little more realistic here. MacFarlane is a pretty cool guy as far as lefties go, but it's not because he's a secret right-winger if only, the fedora-tipping episode of Orville should have tipped you off about that. He just looks right-wing compared to the screeching harpies that make up the left nowadays, and, unlike your average college socialist, he has opinions and a personality of his own beyond politics. Because of this, you can sustain a conversation with him without politics coming into it, and he himself feels less obligated to talk about it. As a result, he seems more right than he really is. I bet if you locked him and a well-spoken anon in a room long enough, said anon may push MacFarlane further right, but that's not the same as him being right-wing now.

maybe you're right, but couldnt we say that about practically everyone that ever worked on Trek? Let's say there were some closeted "right-wingers" in Trek/The Orville, but they have to feign more liberal sentiments. Before long, i'd suspect they start to believe a lot of it (at least one certain single issues). Stare long enough into the abyss and all that. I just have a hard time faulting the guy - or anybody that worked on Trek - for harboring some "liberal" or "lefty" views and producing a show that is middle-of-the-road "classicly liberal". If i'm being honest, id have to admit i'd probably do the same thing if i were in his shoes.

I try to judge the spirit of the work, and I just dont find a subversive spirit in The Orville as a whole (there are annoying points, but overall it's not cancer). I don't think the guy is right-wing, to be clear. I just don't care because of the quality of his work and if i have to take a position, i'd likely to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume at least some of his opinions are fake.

Like you suggest, though, it's all relative. If we weren't living in such openly hostile and aidsy times, he'd be viewed as a degenerate trying to pollute Star Trek. As it stands, he at least appears to be using "degeneracy" as camouflage to preserve it. I was probably too harsh on the dissenters, though and that was my mistake if i was.

Yeah, we can. Roddenberry, while socially on the conservative side believed in a peaceful socialist utopia which technically makes him not too far from the fash but that's another can of worms entirely, and most other trek writers are on the left. I'm not saying that's a problem in and of itself though.

>I try to judge the spirit of the work, and I just dont find a subversive spirit in The Orville as a whole (there are annoying points, but overall it's not cancer).

You're exactly right, and that's why I don't bear any ill will to him or any other lefty that manages to reign it in. Like I said before, the thing about MacFarlane is that, because he has a personality and interests of his own, there's no need for him to virtue-signal so aggressively. Generally speaking, your average leftard doesn't actually have any endearing qualities to speak of, and the closest they get to personality is regurgitating quotes from The Office; in order to compensate for how two-dimensional they are, they just signal politics as much as they can and hope to attract a fellow member of the hivemind.

I think the issues lays in TOS back then it wasn't the norm to be liberal and because it was a show which explored different ideals it inadvertently became lefty on it's own but I don't think that's what Gene Roddenberry intended, just the retarded fucks that worked with him convinced him otherwise and once they took over the show made it into a drama with lefty overtones.

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.

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.

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.

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.

>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.
