Thrust into his new position as commander, Captain Ed Mercer (Seth MacFarlane) thrusts into space - aboard the explorer ship the USS Orville. Joined by his first officer ex-wife (Adrianne Palicki) and an intergalactic crew, he grapples with everything from a planet-absorbing space anomaly to an overly amorous, gelatinous engineer (Norm MacDonald). With its wry humour, insightful social commentary and brilliant ensemble cast, 'The Orville' is one of the freshest shows ever to enter our atmosphere.

Childish American rubbish - The Orville: Series 1 review by JG

Spoiler Alert

Poor actors, rubbish acting the story lines are all copied from early Star Trek. The so called humour is childish and hardly laughable. Pass this by there are far better series out there.

A fine nod to the sci fi of the 70s - The Orville: Series 1 review by RP

Spoiler Alert

Thankfully this isn't a Family Guy in Space. Seth MacFarlane clearly has a soft spot for the Star Trek type series of his youth. While humour is there the stories are nice nods to the ethical dilemmas the more hopeful sc fi series approached. Not always with the ending you would expect. As with any ensemble cast the stories stand or fall on how the audience invest in the characters. They are a nice mixture and carry the episodes well. They are all different enough for us to care about them. If you liked Star Trek and all that followed it, then you probably will enjoy the series. Artfully done without too many antics that would spoil the pace and flow. Already granted a second series. It is well worth a watch.

Yet another reincarnation of Star Trek - The Orville: Series 1 review by MD

Spoiler Alert

Painfully modern, anodyne, desexed and politically correct with plenty of action to interest little boys. For all that, it's not completely unwatchable. There is some passable humour and genuine sci-fi ideas.
