Color me impressed! It's a model!

I just wish it had been bigger. That's a small model, compared to ones from Trek series.

That's what she said.

I was recently stunned (and then it was "Of course!") when I learned that INTERSTELLAR used physical models. And I really liked the look of those spaceship fx. The models they used were huge, btw.

CGI is "cartoonish".......say it ain't so.

I'm surprised at the small size of the filming model too. Should've been larger. But they make it look pretty impressive on screen nevertheless.

Major plot hole in the pilot. Aging a Redwood seed by a hundred years would get you a... hundred year old Redwood seed! Now if they planted the seed in soil, and gave it water and nutrients maybe you'll get a tree.

Caught a few minutes of it last night, by accident. I would be surprised if this lasted a full season. Predictable sitcom humor with predictable sci-fi humor. I appreciated one odd line - "owe me a coke" mainly because I didnt think it was known outside my state or after the 1970s.

Supposed to have moved to Thursday's now, so it'll be on tomorrow night (after "Gotham", as I read).

EDIT:
It is.

Man...if you expect that show to hand-deliver you anything smart...well, you ain't smart. big grin

That's not a plot hole. I guess you missed the whole scene where they talked about how they had genetically modified the seeds to grow under almost any conditions.

Of course not. It’s still fun to point out. big grin

So genetically modified means it can grow without water or nutrients. Okay…. roll eyes

Wait! Did Gotham move to Thursdays? It used to be on Monday night.

Major plot hole

With the guy behind this show, I'd expect a character named Major Asshole, but it's a network show, so forget it.

Even though I vowed not to bother watching this beyond the pilot, I did switch over to it at 8PM Sunday -- and the football game was still on! Since I had to record both the Vietnam documentary on PBS, and then THE DEUCE on HBO at 9, I had to give up on THE ORVILLE -- and I don't think I missed anything.

Anyway, we should have a thread dedicated to THE DEUCE, which has already been renewed by HBO for a second season. That's the show everyone here should be watching -- oh, yeah! -- instead of this stupid ORVILLE Fig Newton of a show.

Yup.

We've watched the first episode and really enjoyed it. We liked that they aren't trying to make EVERY single line a joke. Comedy is knowing when and where to push a joke and I think there was a great amount, not too many not too little. Hope this continues for years and years smile

My dad and I really enjoy this show.

A much better episode.



Didn't like the "humor" they mis-used Norm MacDonald for.

I'm enjoying it, too, and I was surprised that it's not the laugh-a-minute show that the trailer seemed to indicate. I think almost every joke in the first episode was crammed into the trailer. And how many jokes were in the third episode? Just a few?

Seth said in an interviews before the pilot aired, that trailer was pretty much most of the jokes and that the show was more serious than that.
