    Really? To me it was very "American liberals know best". How does a union of such different worlds even hang together politically if they can't respect each others' cultural differences? Sheesh.

    So far I'm liking the show because it does not fit into the normal categories. It takes itself seriously, but not seriously enough not to make jokes. The last episode scene in the elevator has me laughing.

    Saw the first episode. I liked it. Not sure about the humour but we'll see how it goes.

    That's what this show needs! A "decontamination gel" sequence!

    And on that note, I'm shamelessly stealing this gif from the Gif Thread that is better than the one I posted up-thread, so you can get a better look at what is under that uniform.

    Its alright. It thought it would be more like Family guy with crazy cut scenes. There is a lot of dramatic shit in this.

    No doubt that this is a sci-fi drama, and not a comedy like it was originally billed. It has funny moments for sure, but it's going right at issues right out of the gate. I turned it on expecting to hate it because of all the feedback and backlash I saw so far, and I was pleasantly surprised. There's some anti-Seth animus built up with critics which is too bad, the immediate hatred for the show was misplaced. I wouldn't say it's great, but it's good and it's entertaining. I have more hope for it to succeed than Discovery, sadly, but that's partially because I am still a little livid about the paywall to see Discovery.

    Why is the blob expensive? Seems like an easy model to build.

    I don't know why it was billed as a Comedy and I see Fox canceling it because it deals with social issues. Right wingers seem to be upset with an episode that focused on leaving a child the same sex that it was born when they hate transgenders. WTF

    Episode 4 was about religious beliefs and intolerance so I could see where that might upset conservatives.

    I thought it was pretty good and much better than Discovery.

    Man that last episode was pure classic sci-fi, almost like it was ripped out of the pages of a Heinlein short story. I really liked that. So far Seth is out-Trekking actual Trek.

    I've enjoyed all the episodes so far, but i think the 1st is actually the weakest of them. Keep watching, you'll enjoy

    Big fox pays the bills for fox news, and Seth is a proven money maker for them. Guaranteed if they tried to screw with him, he would leave the network.

    FOX would only cancel it, if it didn't bring in the viewers. Family Guy, American Dad...not exactly shows that shy away from controversy, and taking shots at conservatism. Just because it's the home of FOX News, doesn't mean they give a fuck when it comes to their shows leaning a certain way, and their track record speaks for itself.

    I could see it being cancelled though, simply because it was billed as signature Seth Macfalane comedy seires, and viewers expecting that, might be put off and stop watching. It's a pretty big bait and switch, and I don't know if the target audience is going to stick with it.

    There's one thing I dont like about Seth, he tries to make everything political. Just tell jokes bud, nobody cares about your views. (imo)

    I'm enjoying it so far. The 4th episode, as others have mentioned, is classic sci-fi and could have easily been an episode of TNG or Voyager.
