The Orville: Season 1 (2017)



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

Critic Reviews for The Orville: Season 1

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (17)

Stretched out to hour-long episodes, it's dismayingly limp.

Irish Independent

I don't love it at all. Indeed I could summarise that first episode in three words. Not. Very. Funny.

December 28, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
Times (UK)

This show is neither a good spoof or a good dramatic sci-fi show.

December 20, 2017 | Full Review…

While on the surface this may seem like a parody of a science fiction show but at its core, this is a legit science fiction show that uses humor to tackle engaging social and political concepts.

Alachia Queen

The result is-you guessed it!-fine. But not at all what we wanted.

The Daily Beast

It's not awful, which is somewhat surprising.
