I enjoyed it. And Klyden is a jerk.
I can't quite go there with Klyden- since he was born female as well.

Bummer this is a fat bit of character serialization (for both Bortas and Topas) that we'll probably never see to completion.

There will always be a soft spot in me for the morality plays and introspection on contemporary culture. It is encouraging to see The Orville champion it in its storytelling - even if the show's future is up in the air. Props to Brannon Braga and the writing staff too. The first episode about Issac's suicide was amazing.

That should make him more empathetic , not less!
Clearly there's something that we're still in the dark regarding Moclan culture. I didn't read Klyden's shunning because Topas chose to be female- but because of the trauma she would endure by choosing to be female. Possibly trauma that Klyden has some experience with. More fear than hate and loathing.

Does it justify the shunning? No. It's still walking away from your kid. But ask families of chronic alcohol/substance abusers of the choices they've had to make.

I'm currently watching episode 6. This season is a lot more serious than previous seasons. Some heavy subjects being tackled so far. 😱
For the first two seasons, the show seems to flip between high-concept work comedy and straight-up space opera melodrama. But the third season, they seem to have "gone for broke" and totally embraced the latter.
