    The Orville Season Two - Thoughts?

    Tonight was the premiere of the second season of "The Orville." What did everyone think?

    I thought it was pretty good. I was glad to see Alara return, as I had heard rumors that she wouldn't be back this season and I really like her character.

    I totally called the reason for Capt Mercer's sudden shuttle run, right before what I had guessed played out on screen.

    And for "limited commercial interruption," they sure showed a lot of commercials! I guess they had the same number of breaks but not as many commercials in each break. It still seemed like we were going to commercial every 5 minutes or so, though.

    It's moving to Thursdays after this initial Sunday premiere.

    I very much enjoyed it. I think that they held off for 20 minutes before each of the first two commercial breaks. Same here on the shuttle flight

    Alara was supposed to disappear somewhere around mid-season, based on the rumours.

    Not bad. I'm just glad to see it back.

    After the first four minutes I think the episode should be called "taking the piss..." ;-)

    It was a good #1 episode. A trickle of new characters made a splash. The plotline interweaving had a nice, natural flow to it.

    Not to shower it with too much praise, but I’d posit with a start like this, 2019’s season will be golden.

    I heard this episode was actually filmed with season 1, to be the season 1 ender, but they held it back to kickoff season 2. If that's right, Alara's presence in this episode is not strong evidence. :-/

    IMDB still thinks she's part of upcoming episodes well into the season. Not that IMDB is a system of record, though, so we shall see.

    Did anybody else notice Jason Alexander has joined the cast? He's the rhino-headed bartender. I recognized his voice at once, but it took me a moment to recall just whose voice it was. And then I realized it was George Costanza's (his character from Seinfeld) voice coming out of the rhino-alien's mouth. And sure enough, there was Jason Alexander's name in the opening credits.
