The Orville NYCC Panel Recap

Yesterday I attended the Orville panel at the New York Comic Con (replete with a press pass, thanks to Gary from Nerdrotic and Viviane from Hey Viv). It’s the first convention panel I’ve ever attended (I’ve been to NYCC before, but always seem to spend the day looking for people), and a great way to …

REVIEW: The Orville – Season 2, Episode 14 “The Road Not Taken”

Sandwiched between the long-awaited Avengers: Endgame and Sunday’s big Game of Thrones throw-down is the season finale of The Orville. Picking up from the surprise ending of last week’s “Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow,” “The Road Not Taken” is an exciting dose of time-travel wonkiness with a beating heart fueling the plot. Following Kelly’s decision …

REVIEW: The Orville – Season 2, Episode 11 “Lasting Impressions”

After a one-week absence (and before a three-week hiatus!), The Orville resurfaces this week with “Lasting Impressions,” a return to the slower, more character-driven episodes that began the season. Like “Blood of Patriots,” the focus is on Gordon, as new facets of his personality are explored, and the ship’s clown grows sadder. There’s also a …

REVIEW: The Orville – Season 2, Episode 7 “Deflectors”

After taking a week off (during sweeps!), The Orville returns this week with “Deflectors,” which begins as another relationship episode – which, despite the excellent “A Happy Refrain,” gave me some consternation – but becomes something much more interesting. Talla takes center stage, likely in another effort to endear her to viewers reeling from Alara’s …
