Seth Macfarlane’s Orville Show

Seth MacFarlane is out with a new show directed by John Favreau that is essentially a spoof of Star Trek. That plot may sound familiar because it is. Galaxy Quest, which came out in 1999, looked like it was going to be a terrible movie but turned out to be an incredibly funny movie. Orville, looks to be a similar movie in the sense that it places a captain that has no real business at the helm commanding a ship across the galaxy. Other than Seth MacFarlane, there aren’t a lot of really big names, but I always like it that way. This could be a sleeper hit and long run cult hit like Galaxy Quest was. It’s airing on Fox later this year but there is no firm premiere date yet.

Get it.
