    Finally watched the pilot last night.  I liked it.  It has the tone of GQ or the lighter TOS episodes.  Not as good as either, but given the constant whinging I hear from people supposedly tired of grimdark, you'd think we should give this one a chance.

    He is a hepcat superhero wizard Hepcat. His incantations are beat poetie. His spells have a 50's-60's flavor to them. And criminals fear his finger snapping. 
    He recently aquired the Cloak of Pandemonium, which has a portal to Hell inside it. The demons must obey Hepcat, but his cloak is slowly corrupting him to the side of evil.

    And I thought I was the only one. I thought the same thing about McCree originally. It is the sidebuns, I guess. They are just so "Hugh Jackman Wolverine", if you know what I mean: http://digitalspyuk.cdnds.net/17/09/768x506/gallery-1488560580-wolverine-hugh-jackman-x-men-days-of-future-past.jpg
     
     
    "Beware, evil takes forms far from foul." is among the first things one might think when seeing Kassandra, the Lavender Knight. This is even more true if one sees her places of activity after she is finished - full of corpses.
    But in this specific case, it would be asuming the wrong thing, for Kassandra is not a murderes and indeed not affiliated with the Undead. She is a Deathless: A being that while no longer living, also the anathema to undeath creatures. Where undead are re-animated by black magic, Deathless are animated by purified lifeforce and still/again posess their full soul. And without a exception, they hate the undead and hunt them (and their creators) across the earth.
     
    Powers:
    Being a deathless, Kassandra has the Absolute Live Aura, also called the "Life Terror Field" by Sentient undead: This energy field protects her equally against harm from both undead, magic and mundane sources and actually is painfull for Undead to be in contact with. It also has the added benefit that it repells any kind of dirt - especially the tainted bodyfluids from the slain undead - keeping her always looking perfect. It also smells slighly like Lavender, wich is the reason for her byname.
     
    Her original weapon of choice is Gravedagger, a sword that was once created during a "undead civil war" and has the ability to drain the dark magic right out of Animated bodies. While it would augment a undead wielder with the Absorbed powers, Kassanda can only use it to more effectively destroy undead with exceptional amoutns of dark magic. Her own Aura destroys the undead energies as the sword "feeds" it to her.
    In the modern age she updated her weaponry a bit, as it now includes pistols and a flamethrower.
     
    Thanks to the absolute life aura she does not actually need a helmet and indeed protetion is not why she carries the Lichs Redoubt around. One of the first arch-lives she slew was especialyl crafty and had a inestructible skull-shaped phylactery. However he understimade what would happen if it was converted into a helmet and kept close to a Deathless - the Absolute Life Aura effectively "locks him inside" of the Phylactery, never able to actually gather a new body. Moreover it is slowly erroding the dark magics, so baring any other way to destroy or it being "rescued" the lich should be permanently dead in a about a milennium.

    I admit, the Wright Brothers were the first thing I thought of when I saw the title.  And there was a scene at the end when Commander Grayson mentioned a ship called the USS Chanute.  Given that, it's reasonable to assume there are ships named the Bleriot, the Lilienthal, the Curtiss, and the Beachey--to name but a few. 
     
    But not the Langley.  That one crashed on takeoff.  Twice.
     
     
     
    I liked it as well.  I laughed, I cheered, I enjoyed it.  The scene where Captain Mercer and Cmdr. Grayson were arguing and the entire bridge crew could hear it through the bulkhead was especially funny.  In a way the show reminds me of Doug Curtis's SpaceHack comic series, which appeared in Knights Of The Dinner Table a few years ago--enjoyable as both parody and space adventure.
     
    Congratulations, Mr. MacFarlane--you made a show I actually like.  I will continue to watch.

    It really wasn't bad at all. Actually less wooden than Star Trek Next Gen was at first.
     
    Watch Orville as Orville and it wasn't bad at all.
     
    Watch Orville looking for Trek or Family Guy, and well it isn't.
     
    As for Sir vice Ma'am. It's just lingo. I've heard both on the hanger deck in last few weeks. Just like saying Petty Officer Smith instead of the more familier P.O.1 or AT1
     
    But generally the show looks good. In the preview show, Seth called it a comedic drama and went on to say they were aiming to bring back lighter not dark not dystopian scifi.
     
    And I'm good with that. I've become seriously jaded on grungy dark future, dark conspiracies and evil guberment....
     
    I seriously like to see something tgat is not just another bandwagon editorial. I mean TV shows have always injected a small dash of political or social opinion into the entertainment. The problem is that today shows are mostly political or social opinion with a tiny dash of entertainment. And the theme seems to always be dark.
     
    In the end Orville is a decent show in early stages that is aiming to fill a completely empty niche. Optimistic scifi. Just because it is not the expected clone is no reason to avoid it.

    I've seen a comment on a different site that says that the critics are getting The Orville wrong as a parody. It isn't one. Seth MacFarlane may be trying to develop an optimistic show like TNG, but can't refrain from inserting the occasional d*ck joke for the Family Guy fans.

    Hi,
     
    I hope you don't mind me participating
     
     
     
     
    "When the world is in danger, a champion of humankind will arise. he'll avenge the weaks and punish the bullies. He'll be as pure as silver itself, and resilient as the sand scarab."
     
    those were the words Rashid El Mumrah heard his hole childhood, when he was living in the devastated city of Bagdad. When the bombs launched by all the foreign countries that "wanted to help his native land" destroyed his city, took the lives of numerous member of his family and friends.
     
    Then one day, as he was strolling among the ruins of his ancient city quarter, another misguided missile struck the building he was in. The explosion caused the ground to collapse below his feet, and he thought his last hour had come.
    But he landed in a secret lair of some criminal Organization, and found weapons and high tech equipment by dozen. Especially he found a chemical chamber, and realized he could try to do something. To make a difference, to become a true defender of his own land. His heart inflated with hope and desperation at the same tie, he did something that would change him forever.
     
    When he stepped out the chamber, the silverish armor was stuck to his body, imprisonning him inside its life support systems and built-in weaponry. It was like a shell, like another life and he could see that Allah was great, to gift him with the weapons of his ennemies, and defend the simple folks. He would be the Silver Scarab. He'd be a hero.

    I really don't care if the right is tired of the "false equivalency" thing. It's true and I won't quit calling them out on it. Maybe Obama's followers and press did hype him as a messiah. He never did. He even joked about his father sending him to earth from krypton.
     
    Trump came out and said he was the only man who could safe America. It came out right out if that ever open mouth of his.
     
    Yet Obama was called "arrogant". Note that "arrogant" is newspeak for "uppity".
     
    Obama never called for violence against anyone, even his enemies. Trump told his followers to "best the crap out of him" in regards to a protestor.
     
    Obama never used crude or vulgar language. Trump publicly told people to "go XXXX themselves".
     
    But Obama was called arrogant, power mad, hateful, etc.
     
    Also right wing media has gone to extremes no major left wing media ever went to. While on fox news Glenn beck did a "comedy skit" about poisoning Nancy pelosi and otherr left wing personalities. Oh, but it was "just a joke". Can you imagine if MSNBC had done something like this?:

    One issue in american politics is how a few people now control the media after the right has repealed laws meant to keep that from happeni g.
     
    I remember when Obama was president and fox news criticized and attacked every single thing he did. They attacked him for liking grey poupon on his hamburgers. Fox news called for his impeachment because he accepted a nobel prize. He was attacked the way his daughters dressed.
     
    Now that we have that thing in the white house, fox news' coverage is more like what is portrayed below.
     
    I hope most European countries don't let a few moguls dominate the media. Well, I've heard Rupert Murdoch has near total control of the media in Australia. When the media is controlled by the few it becomes political propaganda without criticism.
