From the wonderfully warped mind of Emmy® winner Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) comes this witty live-action sci-fi series. Thrust into his new position as commander, Captain Ed Mercer (MacFarlane) thrusts into space — aboard the explorer ship the USS Orville. Joined by his first officer ex-wife (Adrianne Palicki) and an intergalactic crew, he grapples with everything from a planet-absorbing space anomaly to an overly amorous, gelatinous engineer (Norm MacDonald). With its wry humour, insightful social commentary and brilliant ensemble cast, including Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon and Halston Sage, The Orville is one of the freshest shows ever to enter our atmosphere.

We like it because:

Having previously re-imagined the iconic Star Wars saga through the lens of his hit comedy Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane is no stranger to projecting his love of Sci-Fi onto our screens. Sitting in the captain’s chair both on and off the screen, he now confidently showcases his admiration of Sci-Fi classics like Star Trek with a comedy drama that carves its own creative identity as both a homage to its forefathers, and hilarious parody in the same breath.

The Orville boasts a visual style rivalling anything else on TV. From its high quality sets that bring the titular ship to life, incredible special effects, and a calibre of talented guest stars like Liam Neeson (Taken), the presentation of The Orville is as high quality as its execution.

Fans of Sci-Fi adventure and MacFarlane’s brand of comedy alike will find a lot to love in this uniquely fun show that’s already set for a second season. The only question is, when will you join the Orville’s crew?
