The Orville

Much like John Carter and The Lone Ranger, The Orville seems to be one of those ventures that professional critics and fanboys alike hated before a single frame was viewed; it became cool to deride them.

Here are a few examples of why this criticism seems unfair. And a word of caution: everything from here on will be SPOILERS.

The Orville

FOX has been releasing some trailers for upcoming shows this week, including one for the X-Men series The Gifted.

Another trailer they released is for a show titled The Orville. It’s a sci-fi comedy inspired by Star Trek (so a little closer to Galaxy Quest, but without the Seven Samurai storyline), and comes from Family Guy creator and Ted director Seth MacFarlane, with Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book) directing. The show is set 400 years in the future, following the crew of a spaceship as they face everything from dangerous space situations to normal day-to-day workplace situations.

You can read much more about The Orville and watch the trailer below.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode 3.9 is aptly, or perhaps ironically, named “Closure.” Multiple characters are seeking closure, but sadly, none of them get it (yet). Still, the latest S.H.I.E.L.D. installment is action-packed from the opening to the close.

Wow. INTENSE! That’s the only way I can describe how I feel after watching this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And a huge reveal at the end only added to the it’s impactfulness. Spoilers ahead!

Everyone is still questioning Coulson (Clark Gregg) because he’s sleeping with the “enemy” — and I mean literally questioning him. Mack (Henry Simmons) flat out asks Coulson if he and Rosalind (Constance Zimmer) are sleeping together. Coulson has a plan, though. He’s freaking Nick Fury’s protege — of course he has a plan! He’s putting into effect “Operation Spotlight,” a tactical mission to uncover the truth behind ATCU’s Inhuman involvement. Coulson believes that Rosalind and the ATCU trust him, but he wants to make sure the feeling is mutual, and Daisy (Chloe Bennet) finally gets it: the camera focuses on her, squinting her eyes and opening her mouth slightly, giving a knowing nod.

It’s sexy beach times for May (Ming-Na Wen) and Andrew (Blaire Underwood) — six months ago, to be exact — as they reevaluate their relationship, as well as May’s future with S.H.I.E.L.D. Unfortunately, the ex-lovers’ turned possible ex-ex-lovers aren’t able to maintain their blissful reunion for too long. A few days later, back in Andrew’s office, he opens an old book belonging to Jiaying, filled with Inhuman names, and is covered in the Terrigen Mist, quickly turning into stone (and subsequently a stone-faced killer).
