I know I'm gonna get hell for this but I find the theme rather generic. It's okay but doesn't really stand out or sound iconic.

Yep.
Lukewarm Williams.
Like the show itself.

"But those effects, along with the show’s ridiculously grandiose orchestral score, belong on a sci-fi series with some actual dramatic heft"
------------------
I know it's kind of a put down, but I like that line above.
Other than that, I am still yet to see something (ANYTHING!!) by Seth MacFarlane that makes me laugh (even slightly).


That's a pretty good critique of the music...""ridiculously grandiose".
McFarlane sucks.

Every episode there is at least one moment where my ears perk up and I hear a familiar riff, a familiar call from my childhood. So many fun little musical nods to classic scifi films. Broughton, McNeely and Debney certainly must love these scores as much as we do.

"Blood of the Patriots"
By: John Debney

FOX.com official link: https://www.fox.com/watch/d0694b7bc216415a362ae5f0a1bc10f0/
https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x73q2cg (cropped, lower quality, slightly sped up, and flipped load for those region restricted; a part of the opening has been cut off, so you won't hear the first example I listed)

Highlights:
  • 0:00 in. Nice to hear the Broughton theme used.
  • 3:10 in. I think he hear a light play on Eidelman's score to "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country".
  • 27:54 in.
  • 3258 in.
  • 33:10 in.
  • 36:47 in.
  • 47:20 in.

  • In regards to the plots hole and what not, everything has them, it's just that people tend not to notice them. But a Youtube channel like CinemaSins does. Having said that, it's in my personal opinion that Part I was especially full of problems. I almost want to go through it again to list everything I can find.

    My main problem is with how the Union operates as a whole. How does it relate to or differ from the Federation? Do they just let a member of any unknown species operate their flagships? Is their policy of first contact to just show up unannounced without official negotiators or scouts or any manner of ecological study (like the aliens from Signs)? What is up with that shuttlebay placement? Are half of their missions relegated to the planet Moclus? Is there no defensive perimeter of stations or ships around Earth, because, I dunno, the Krill maybe? Do the incessant 80s references allude to humanity evolving from the edict of an in-universe television series called Star Trek: The Next Generation, and that's how this particular future was shaped, with this show reflecting a satire of such an evolution? Would a potential Star Trek XV have the Enterprise sliding to this alternate dimension and end up fighting the Orville? And seriously, is Yaphit a Dralasite with jaundice?

    Inquiring sentients want to know...

    PS Side question: shouldn't the series have gone through the whole "Getting To Know You" episodes in the first season?

    Blood of the Patriots

    Best episode of the series! The two parter was fun, lots of effects and action but this is the best scripted episode, best performances, full of twists, mystery, tension, drama. Most of the comedy even worked. (I laughed out loud a few times.)

    Everyone acted like normal adults. Malloy in particular showed depth instead of being the resident sidekick. Fabulous guest star performance by Mackenzie Astin.

    It was a fantastic episode!! And I noticed a few Debney/Horner "four note danger motifs" here and there, as he has done in season 1 big grin

    "Identity: Part II"


    Did the "Red Shirt" who got spaced out of the airlock by the Kaylon get reincarnated? Though I saw him in a later scene dragging a Kaylon body off of the bridge.

    Very pleasant episode this week, albeit slight. Debney's score couldn't have been longer than five minutes (lots of source music in this one) but it set the tone nicely with good woodwind work.

    Thanks for your article! I have read through some similar topics! However, your post has given me a very special impression, unlike other posts.
    I hope you continue to have valuable articles like this or more to share with everyone!

    "Earntodieaz" here is obviously a spammer, placing links to various sites, but offering only generic "replies" that could posted anywhere, on any subject.

    "Lasting Impressions"
    By: John Debney

    Official FOX.com link: https://www.fox.com/watch/e63f3905a570de7b0ca83e0a14ff5034/
    No link currently found. (lower quality, cropped, flipped video for those region restriction)

    Highlights:
  • 2:40 in.
  • 13:50/37:50 in. A rare example of a good crossfade idea.
  • 15:04 in.
  • 21:15/21:52 in.
  • 43:10 in.
  • 40:57 in.

    Apparently Seth heard our complaints about the wooden chairs in the "10-Forward" of the Orville. I don't see any here and I don't think I've seen any in three episodes now.

    There are only three episodes remaining this season. The next one is three weeks away. There is no official word on season three coming (apparently the ratings have not been good and other factors; it might not get renewed).

    Aw crap! I hope it doesn't get cancelled! It was finally starting to find its footing and get into some really good stories! Even the first season was great. Uneven, yes, but still great. The only episode in both seasons that I don't care to see again was the episode with Rob Lowe as the blue alien archaeologist that made people sex-crazed.

    "Lasting Impressions"


    They kinda did this already with the doctor. One aspect of ST:TNG and this series I really dislike are the "unlucky in love" thing the main characters go threw. The holo-deck is really a virtual reality machine. Any crew member could create the perfect love life and live happily ever after. The fact their trying to find a relationship in a virtual world should raise eyebrows, but apparently doesn't.
