Re: The Orville New Horizons (Season 3) 2022.03.10

Thatís interesting, but it is a pretty good fit for Disney. I wonder if theyíre trying to be the biggest station dedicated to fantasy and sci-if.

WOW! THE ORVILLE SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL read by Bruce Boxleitner. I didn't love it, but Boxleitner is fantastic.

THE ORVILLE SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL

This is a story MacFarlane wanted to tell, but couldn't get the episode produced for this season. And I didn't love it, but it is a pretty brilliant story.

I needed to use a credit at Audible, I have a few piling up. This is a great way to spend one. Thanks for the tip!

Was bouncing around Audible-land and noticed "Sympathy" available today for something like $3.91, so my car will have to get by with 4/5 less of a gallon of fuel. Wonder if this might be a back-door way to get a season 4 if all else fails? Big Finish, meet Big Farlane.

Well just know that it is very different. Great story, but a very drawn out tale for THE ORVILLE.... and that is saying something.

Haven't listened to it yet, but from the semi-mixed reviews on Audible, am guessing it might be deemed Darker since it appears to delve into the extended backstory of a not-too-nice-person, although am guessing the title "Sympathy for the Devil" is kind of an obvious hint. Am currently in more of a Happy Audiobooks Mood, so used a credit to get A Million Ways to Die in the West. Which ironically would also appear to be an Expanded version of the movie, just as "Sympathy" is an Expanded episode-ish since it's extended length allows for additional information.

Re: The Orville New Horizons (Season 3) 2022.03.10

Yes SYMPATHY is a darker story. The amazing thing is how this season really seems like TNG 2022. All of the "standalone" episodes seem to have plots TNG could have/would have told if they were telling them today and were allowed to tell them today - I think this one most of all. Of course there are reasons for that, but it really is amazing. Really the show has seemed liked TNG with more relatable characters and a bit more flawed Universe.

Looks like I won't have time to watch the finale, FUTURE UNKNOWN, until late tomorrow or the weekend. I'm actually okay with that as I am still processing last week's episode, DOMINO.

Re: The Orville New Horizons (Season 3) 2022.03.10

I usually watch the episodes a day late, they become available too late for me on Wednesdays. I also downloaded the audiobook story that Seth published. I'll have some fun catching up tonigiht and this weekend.

I really hope Disney Plus orders new episodes. This show is the best science fiction on television right now.

Re: The Orville New Horizons (Season 3) 2022.03.10

Well it was great! A bit surprising for a Season Finale, but I'm glad they leaned into a bit more light-hearted overall conclusion. I mean still some heavy stuff in there, but overall light-hearted. What a Season!!!!! I can't wait to start watch everything again as soon as it hits Disney Plus next week!

I so hope that someone funds a season 4. Orville has been one of my favorite show on tv right now. Itís probably tied for first place, actually. Iíve really enjoyed it, especially this season.
