The Orville

Like many Trekkies, I'm getting a bit fed up waiting for news about Discovery to come out. They seem to keep putting it off and putting it off, so I'm beginning to doubt whether it'll ever be shown. However, I've just been alerted to something to focus on in the meantime: Dean, one of my mates from the film festival, just sent me this link. It seems that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is working on a new live-action show spoofing Star Trek. Of course, a short trailer isn't much to go on, and Macfarlane's work can be fairly hit and miss; but I think Orville could be worth getting excited about.

There have been science fiction comedies before, Red Dwarf for example, but none with such obviously high production values. This has the potential to be great, and could say a lot of interesting things about Star Trek and sci fi generally. Mind you, by the same token, it could be puerile and childish - just a series of gags set on a star ship. Either way, I think this is one to keep an eye on.
