'The Orville' Questionable Dessert Coating VS *-- TOTAL HORSE MANURE --*!!

Apparently it's going political too ..........Back to my brainless "Who done its" and HG TV........ :D
IMHO Doka as a component of TV, flicks, you name it and all around to paraphrase "The Schnozzola" Jimmy Durante, if not everybody at this point more's the question of who and what isn't wanting in on the politic act these days??

Now, with 'Family Guy' McFarlane at the helm, to expect 'The Orville' to buck the trend in toto would be a bit much. On the flip side, it can't be said the ST franchise hasn't had a history of doing allegories on current events/politics -

That (not) said? Far's show biz 'directives' go, 'ST Discovery' IS a PURE and PRIME example of a patently politicized Sci Fi series; far less Trek than blatant orgasmic SJW Drek, its baked-in heavy handedness is absolutely anvilicious.

It's one thing to serve up ice cream with social justice syrup, but AS a turn-off it's not AS NOXIOUS as all of STD!! Far from a fun space-faring treat, nothing I've seen tells me IT's dishing out anything but complete and utter CRAP.

"The Orville" Was A Rerun This Week? What Gives?

Post by Riddick » 10-20-2017 12:36 AM

No official word on why "Majority Rule" wasn't shown on Thursday. A repeat of the series premiere ("Old Wounds") aired in its place

Not wanting to air a new episode against the MLB playoff game would make sense - Still, could their be more reason for why FOX pulled the rug out at the last minute?

Instead of a hit, were their worries it might 'strike out' big time with the fan base? Will it air eventually if not sooner, or be indefinitely shelved for 'Major League' "re-tooling"?

Who's on First? What's on Second? I Don't Know's On Third?? Stay turned!

Well, whether a single week repeat can be considered a routine mid-season break, in any case barring another unexpected change in the schedule it appears "Majority Rule" will be airing this Thursday

While I dunno if there was any purposeful 'bait and switch' strategy involved in what happened this past week, if indeed a pattern of rug pulling emerges I'd be more inclined to believe so.

'Black Mirror' Takes On 'Star Trek' With Outer Space Episode

Post by Riddick » 12-10-2017 01:14 AM

No fan of STD, can't wait for "The Orville" season 2, yet want more Star Trek inspired spacefaring adventures in the meantime? Coming soon to Netflix is 'USS Callister'

Image

In episode 4 of the 4th season of "Black Mirror," the dark Emmy-winning sci-fi anthology, viewers are invited to follow the story of a bemused captain and his trusty Space Fleet crew exploring the galaxy and the dangers of unknown alien planets.

Image

There are goofy color-coded outfits, blue aliens, and people wearing mini-skirts in space for no reason whatsoever. With Black Mirror, however, looks can be deceiving -

Even as the hilariously retro promo gives a glimpse of its influence, there's no hint of the severely sinister twist on Star Trek's mythos 'USS Callister' is going to have. Somehow, that just makes things more unsettling.



A hoot to watch it will be but USS Callister will also probably fock you up the way the best Black Mirror eps tend to do.
