After a week off, the Orville returns with a blast from the past, as the crew opens a time capsule from 2015.
It’s all over but the crying... and the layoffs. The Disney - Fox deal has closed.
The Krill helped save Earth’s bacon last episode, and may be open to peace negotiations with the Planetary Union... if the crew of The Orville don’t screw it up.
The second half is finally here. Will the crew be able to take back the Orville and prevent the Kaylon’s genocidal onslaught on the Planetary Union? If successful, will there be cake afterward and will Bortus get a corner piece?
Fox is being cagey again. There was no synopsis for this week’s episode and the promo is ambiguous at best...
The Orville has their cloaking fields on full. No synopsis has been released for this episode. All we have is this promo, which could mean anything.
No new episode tonight. I wonder why Fox decided is rebroadcasting the Season 2 opener rather than a new one. Oh well, I may still watch it, if only to remember happier times.
3, 2, 1, First Contact.
Ed finds himself behind enemy lines when he crash-lands on a mysterious planet; Kelly questions why Gordon wants to take the command test.
A homeless, disillusioned teen named Marcus is recruited into Kings Dominion, a secret academy for the Deadly Arts, where he struggles to find his place among a community of the deadliest characters in the world...
I’ve already watched the pilot on YouTube, but still plan on watching it again tomorrow. So much to take in. It definitely warrants a second viewing. Anyone up for taking part in a Spoilerific Reaction Thread?
Season two of The Orville began with a healthy dose of Moclan culture and some festering emotional scars from season one. The third episode turns its focus on Alara, as she visits her home planet of Xelayah, with Ed and Gordon... as seen in last weeks promo.
The Orville returns to Fox this Sunday (12/30)... and then returns to its normal Thursday schedule. Not sure why Fox feels that football fans are the target audience for the show, but I’m damn glad it’s back.
There must not be anything new happening in the genre today. No Morning Spoilers on io9. I guess we’ll have to source our own.
While perusing YouTube, this evening, I came across an early Christmas present, the pilot episode of Deadly Class. So far, I like what I see.
Has anyone else been watching Nightflyers on Syfy? I wasn’t even aware that it started airing on December 2nd. There hasn’t been any mention of it on io9, even during morning spoilers. I realize that recaps would be too much to expect, but it feels like io9 is actively ignoring the series.
Ever have that feeling, that the system is out to get you? I’m am not sure what is happening, but io9 and other Gawker sites seem to think that I am not logged in. They also will not let me login with my mobile device. Oddly enough, I don’t seem to have any issue posting to the Observation Desk?
To paraphrase John Dewey, “We only think when we are confronted with a problem.”
Alliterator’s recent post, Fancasting the Fantastic Four started me thinking about how best to introduce the team to the existing MCU. Should they jump right in with a Fantastic Four film or maybe ease the characters into the franchise through references and cameos?
More Kinja weirdness. This post was supposed to be deleted, but that function doesn’t seem to be working.
