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

Like Galaxy Quest, The Orville appears to be trying to contrast its high-concept space adventure with the comedy of interpersonal conflict, but unlike Galaxy Quest, it's not very good at it.
The tone for Seth MacFarlane's latest TV project is all over the place. The jokes, when they do come, fall flat.
... the show immediately and ignominiously becomes the first real stinker of the fall season, a deep-space dud, recommended only for those who like to study cases of creative bankruptcy.
The Orville relies heavily on its nostalgic tone and its casual humor, showing some promise despite a stuttering start.
