The Orville Might be the Galaxy Quest Show You Always Wanted

“Might,” of course, being the key word. The new show, from creator and star Seth McFarlane, is about a hapless starship captain on his first assignment, forced to serve alongside an XO who is also his ex-wife. And the first trailer looks actually pretty darned funny. McFarlane can be hilarious when he restrains himself – when he’s going full Family Guy, though, his schtick can get old mighty fast. Honestly – Galaxy Quest is one of the best Star Trek movies ever made. It’s entirely possible that, even while trying to be a comedy, The Orville might give us the Star Trek TV show we’ve been looking for. Check out the trailer below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
