In think you can get a free month trial for Hulu. We looked into it today but I wasn't paying to much attention.

No surprise good sci fi doesn't do well on Fox.
If we take the statement as largely true, the issue wasn't how well the show was doing, but production schedule. They were looking at not having new episodes until late 2020 - a year and more from now, which is a hard sell for Fox.

It was mostly a joke, Firefly and Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles were on Fox.

We finished the season 2 last night (we watch one episode a week with friends over dinner).

good. A lot darker. The Moklan episodes are always super dark. Bortis's mate has been dubbed MurderSpouse.

Seemed weird to replace Alara with a lookalike character.

I suspect that they already had a lot of season 2 written when Halston Sage left and that they didn't want to rewrite, so brought in a replacement Xelayan. Seth likely didn't want to just let go of his "jar of pickles" joke.

What a weird thing to say. IIRC they never had the captain make that joke with the new Xelayan. They even had an actual jar of pickles as a farewell present.

actually, on the last episode, when they get to the Orville, Seth tries to open the door and does the Pickle joke for the new security chief, bringing us full circle.
