    season 2 was too focused on that russian sniper he was in too many episodes he should have been in only 2 episodes it stagnated the story.

    I've seen the first two seasons.

    Gillian Anderson's accent bugged me too, but not enough to stop me watching. It's a decent show.

    THE ORVILLE

    I was expecting a lot worse due to the negative reviews but it was entertaining. I thought it was going to be a wacky parody of Star Trek with jokes every 30 seconds. Instead it was like Star Trek with a sense of humor. The makeup was great and the special effects were pretty good but shoddy in some places.

    For now, if I have to change one actor, it would have to be the best friend/helmsman. He just seems so ordinary looking and bland.

    When I was a wee kid, The Greatest American Hero was one of my favorite shows. I shudder to think how I would react to the show if I watch it again.

    Oh God, no. I hope it's not Mindy. I think she has some upcoming projects which will hopefully keep her out of the running for the lead for this show.

    I haven't finished this yet but the science fiction is terrible. They're doing a miserable job selling the universe, the conversation style in particular is too 2017.

    The crew doesn't feel like members of a galactic fleet, they feel like residents of a dorm.

    Yep, it's good. If you can't watch the new "It" movie or haven't seen the "It" mini-series, Stranger Things is the next best thing (and might be better).

    You should set your standards very low for The Orville and you might enjoy it more.

    I have a feeling that after both their first seasons are over, The Orville might be a better show than Star Trek: Discovery (gasp).

    Wayward Pines season 1 was solid

    Never watched season 2 but I heard it was poor

    But I thought Season 1 was great.

    random but seeing some trailer of twin peaks and it reminded me of wayward pines

    Yes, Wayward Pines was pretty good. I didn't like the first few episodes, thought it was dragging and the mystery tease was frustrating. But when they got to episodes 4 and 5, everything was revealed and the show finally hit its groove.

    Season 2 was bad. Story wasn't as good. Lots of the main characters from the first season get killed off in an offhand, unceremonious kind of way. The best thing I liked about it was the shocking plot twist at the end.

    Not surprised Twin Peaks reminded you of Wayward Pines since the latter paid a lot of homage to that 1990 show. Don't watch the Twin Peaks revival unless you're one of those Emperor-Has-No-Clothes die-hard David Lynch fans.

    The Orville was just alright. It's too knock off Star Trek and not enough comedy. There were a lot of times were a joke was right there and they sidestepped it. Also a lot of times that a joke should have been left alone. Hopefully it comes together in future episodes.

    The Mayor needs to be an hour long. The first episode was speeding thru the script at a breakneck pace. But the sidekicks are wonderful. Main guy and Glee chick were good enough. It might be good. It might flame out. It'll probably flame out.

    I'm finished the new episode now, and I'm so bored.

    Can't recall a South Park premiere in which I was bored.

    Extremely safe.
    Nothing edgy.
    I didn't laugh once, and barely cracked a smile.

    Might as well go watch Family Guy.
