Critics Consensus

An odd jumble of campiness and sincerity, homage and satire, The Orville never quite achieves liftoff.

  • Jan 08, 2022
    Every episode hits you with something new. Great comedy, character development, and relevant issues. Got more than I expected.
  • Dec 31, 2021
    Wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was.
  • Dec 29, 2021
    At last star trek old school with humour
  • Dec 23, 2021
    Simply amazing! Love watching the SethTrek! And I am officially a fan forever! <3
  • Dec 19, 2021
    I really enjoyed the revisiting of the stellar voyage in a contemporary tone. The scripts and the actings seem not super elaborate but they are just what's needed for a good moment. The scenarios proposed are super interesting and everything that happens around Bortus and the moclus is cherry-on-cake good.
  • Dec 11, 2021
    Refreshing. Irreverent.
  • Dec 11, 2021
    Better Star Trek than Star Treck. 1000x better than the recent attempts at Star Trek.
  • Dec 07, 2021
    Very good, reminded me of watching Sci-Fi shows as a kid.
  • Nov 25, 2021
    I wasn't a big fan of the first two episodes but, after that, I couldn't get enough of it. If only Discovery could have figured this out.
  • Nov 23, 2021
    This show hits the ground running. In it's initial episodes some of it's humor doesn't always land but a good 4/5ths of it does. The jokes aren't baseless toilet humor but for the most part slice of life and situational jokes and most swearing is relatable; either from frustration/exasperation of for real emphasis. Each character is well written and throughout the series gets more fleshed out. A great deal of thought was put into the universe, the technology, and the culture, and the effects of each on the others. iIn sum total, the show is half sci-fi, half comedy, with a deep plot and characters
