I hope it's not their last season. I just started watching the show. It really found its stride in season 2.

Re: The Orville New Horizons (Season 3) 2022.03.10

It is almost here.....

THE ORVILLE NEW HORIZONS premiers Thursday June 2ND on Hulu. All big budget episodes that are around 70mins long. I can't wait.

This channel is a great place to hear news and updates.

Re: The Orville New Horizons (Season 3) 2022.03.10

I was slow to warm up to Orville, but I got Hulu a year or so ago to watch The Handmaidís Tale and couldnít help but notice Orville. Somewhere around season 2 I found myself wanting to watch more and went through the rest of the series. Then the kept delaying and delaying the release of the current season and I got a bit worried. My viewership can be the Cosmic Kiss of Death for television shows (ďI started watching that in the season before it got cancelledÖĒ). But I see they didnít change the date again, itís this Thursday. The previews do make it look impressive. I hope they havenít spoiled too much.

The Orville New Horizons Episode One (OR Season Three Episode One) ELECTRIC SHEEP

OH WOW! THE ORVILLE NEW HORIZONS premiered on HULU and I was shocked. I did not expect that episode. I have watched it twice. ��

It is going to be interesting to see how things changes with Pre and Post pandemic filming. When the pandemic hit they already had the budget from HULU and had filmed about five episodes worth of footage. They said it wasn't the complete first five episodes, but it was a significant amount of footage from various episodes. So the question becomes, how obvious will the post-pandemic stoppage footage be? Will we see actors acting while standing at a distance from each other? Will there be a lot of talk through devices as opposed to in person? I was thinking about it in several scenes, but I think it has to be safe to assume that all the footage in episode one was pre-pandemic.

It will be very interesting to see how they handle Dr. Finn's kids. Obviously those two boy would have grown up quite a bit with amount of time that passed while they were on hold for the pandemic.

In classic Trek they'd hit them with either a Temporal Anomaly or some disease/accident that accelerates aging. Except when the Magic Cure was found near the end of the show, they could only be restored to their original ages plus a few years. Or in Stargate terms - Close Enough.

Ha! Yes we'll see.

TALKIING THE ORVILLE on YouTube tried to confirm speculation that calling it THE ORVILLE NEW HORIZONS establishes we are now in a different Universe or alternate timeline. If you have seen Season Two you might recognize where there is a path for this to happen.

So we'll see if there might be a big leap forward in time or if they will get a temporal infection.

Seen the first two episodes now. I'd say that this show puts modern Trek to shame if it wasn't for the fact that I'm enjoying Strange New Worlds.

Off topic, but Strange New Worlds has been SO GOOD. After the disaster of DISCO and Picard, it feels like we are back to what Trek should be. Episode 6 was just classic and had me giddy with joy.



Wish they'd axe Picard and DISCO and just focus on Strange New Worlds.

Saw Wil Wheaton at a convention last week, and he also compared Strange New Worlds to classic Trek. Not sure if there's a side-opinion buried in there about the other current shows, but he had nothing but praise for Strange New Worlds.
