Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

If you watch the show it's pretty obvious that Seth MacFarlane is a big Star Trek TNG fan. It's obvious that The Orville was pitched as a TNG parody but after only a few episodes the comedy gets dialed way back down and there aren't that many jokes in the an episode. In fact by the later episodes there's about as much humour in an episode as you might expect in episodes of the show it's supposedly parodying.

At which point MacFarlane's true intention becomes obvious, pitch a parody TNG show to the executives, use the money to just make more TNG. And I'm perfectly fine with that. In fact I look forward to the return of The Orville far more than Discovery or Picard.
