I enjoyed the newest episode as well. It seems some of the other writers are finally starting to get what works in the MacFarlane stories on The Orville. Maybe by next season you won't even be able to tell a difference in the MacFarlane episodes and other writers', save for a few clunker episodes here and there, which is the case with pretty much any show including TOS.

Something interesting in that video chat I linked to--MacFarlane says that the scripts for the first season were all done before any episodes were filmed. Of course, it usually takes writers actually seeing the actors performing the roles onscreen before they really start producing their best work.

I have a feeling that the second season will be more polished, writing-wise, since they'll have a foundation to build on.

Remember, the Kirk-Spock-McCoy trinity only came into being once the writers saw the chemistry between the actors, after the first few episodes were in the can.

2 episodes left. I recall reading that Seth wrote 7 episodes this season, so at least one of the next 2 will be written by him. I'd lay odds on that being the finale, given that's usually how showrunner/creator-written episodes usually get doled out.

I read that the last episode produced for this season is now being held over to air during the second season. Huh.

I hope we get a full second season. Fox has had issues in recent years when the 'hot new show' has an extended hiatus, and doesn't quite get its mojo back the net season (SLEEPY HOLLOW, for one...not to mention GOTHAM).

The Orville has become the only show that I actually watch on a week-to-week basis.  I don't watch it "live," but I usually watch it a day or two after it airs.

Definitely one of my favorite new shows.
