Critic Reviews for The Orville: Season 2

Audience Reviews for The Orville: Season 2

  • 5d ago
    i have mixed feelings about this one, i like how the show tackles modern issues and how character evolve and tranform but some episodes i truly forgot that this is supposed to be a comedy series, now it looks more like a star trek clone without any new twist, i get that a comedy cant be a constant barage of jokes but having 2 jokes and a goofy scene per episode can be achived in an action/drama, i still love the jokes that happen but i feel like we could use more of them, still recomend it but more as a drama, if you want a more light experience try season 1
  • Dec 16, 2022
    Still good, but showing signs of Doctor Who syndrome, losing some of its initial charm, and focus on fun episode-per-episode premises.
  • Dec 15, 2022
    Although a bit shy of where I hold the "Star Trek: the Next Generation" in my heart, this show adds a uniquely satisfying twist of humor on a sci-fi classic that can have you jumping from a hearty laugh to holding back tears. If this was on Netflix, it would certainly be on the top ten list. Give it a shot if you enjoy sci-fi, the humor is not overwhelming; in fact, I'd say it is weighted more as a drama than a comedy from the second season on. And the sci-fi special effects? *chef's kiss*
  • Dec 02, 2022
    The Orville has been compared to Star Trek several times and for good reason and much like Star Trek it takes a season to get going. The Orville Season 2 really starts to show what the show is capable of. This is as good as any Trek. Highly Enjoyable.
  • Dec 01, 2022
    They toned down the comedy a bit in season 2 the show is better for it
  • Nov 20, 2022
    A wonderfully creative, thoughtful show. Very much in the tradition of Star Trek, but with very unique and delightful qualities of its own. Very impressive and fresh plot ideas and character development. Intriguing and very successful combination of great storylines, wonderful characters, a delightful sense of humor, and serious and very thoughtful themes relating to moral issues, personal relationships, etc. A truly unique and creative show that has quickly become one of my favorites.
  • Nov 18, 2022
    even better than the first season!
  • Nov 10, 2022
    The best season of the three.
  • Oct 18, 2022
    Overall really enjoyed, I actually watched in the background but half way it grabbed me and went back to rewatch. Best Star Trek on air.
  • Oct 07, 2022
