    Oh, I completely agree about his low brow sense of humor and that's why I don't enjoy his TV shows or movies.

    But I DO enjoy hearing him speak on topics in an intelligent & humorous way, and am also impressed with his singing talents.

    Ah yes, Red Dwarf USA. The very notion still gives me nightmares...

    Down Periscope in Space, or, McHale's Starfleet, it could the greatest thing ever, or it could be the worst thing ever. But the trailer is amusing enough that I'm looking forward to it.

    McFarlane is known to be a huge Star Trek fan so this may actually be a labor of love for him although I suspect the humor will be more "A Million Ways to Die in the West" than Galaxy Quest.

    But that trailer looks better than the latest Star Trek Discovery one.

    I'm definitely in for this one. That trailer was great. Definitely better than the new Star Trek Discovery one.

    Did anybody catch the "Admiral Halsey" line (Paul McCartney song) reference in the Orville preview? lol.

    Nah, we are talking about Seth MacFarlane comedy here. I'm sure the reference is to the Admiral Halsey in McCartney's song.
