I couldn't get into The Orville. I like other stuff Seth MacFarlane has done, but the humor in Orville didn't do much for me.
I feel like the humour, which isn't great, got more and more sidelined. I think he just wanted to make a traditional Trek show, really. I find it quite watchable.
Maybe I'll give it another shot at some point. I have a hard time imagining it as a serious sci-fi show though.
I finished the first part of Stranger Things.
I'm have mixed feelings. Overall I also think it's better than season 3, and I'm pleased with that but there are a couple of things that I didn't like.
First the bullying against 11 is out of proportion, it feels like they use it as fuel for what she has to do next, but it's ridiculous and too obvious.
And what with the side story where Jim has been captured and Joyce, Murray are looking for him? I guess there will be some last-minute event that rejoins the main plot, but it's just silly and distracting.
Completely agree about the Jim-Joyce-Murray thing. Tbh, the whole plotline with the Russians is really dumb. It was already silly in Season 3 with the underground base right under everyone's noses, and it's dumb here too. I especially dislike the slapstick style of humor with Murray and Yuri.
I enjoyed that last episode though. Talk about a great twist. It almost made up for how mediocre the first 6 episodes were.
What the producers should have done is had that reveal happen in the 4th or 5th episode and then split the season 4-5 or 5-4 instead of 7-2. Why make us wait more than a month for just 2 more episodes?
I think that scene from Stranger Things is worth posting. It's a BIG spoiler, so don't watch unless you've seen it or aren't otherwise interested in the show. But, IMO, this how you do it.
Holy shit, they already have 3 tv series in the star wars universe? I guess that's another thing I'm gonna skip on.
I haven't checked out Obi Wan yet, but what I've heard about it so far doesn't give me high expectations.
For a split second, I thought "hey, they got Ewan McGregor to play the role, that has to count for something" and then quickly remembered that all of those movies he was in were terrible and it counts for nothing.
