So the Orville can be lighter, but it can also get pretty heavy. I am currently watching Season One for the third time. While they do manage to throw comedy as often as they can fit it they also deal with some serious subject matter as well.

I can also tell you that now that it is on Hulu I believe the format has switched to nine 70min episodes. So if you do pickup a Hulu subscription know that the episodes will all be nearly movie length and will be movie length if you have commercials breaks.
I never dropped my Hulu subscription, I just got rid of the “Live TV” part. That package adds something like an extra $60 per month. If Orville isn’t entirely comedy, I will definitely check it out. I wasn’t sure if it was a comedy show or the usual mix of science fiction/comedy/drama. Mainly, I hope the writing is good.

Thanks for the recommendations, everybody!
