Several people have said positive things about The Orville now. Hmmm. It got absolutely savaged by the critics and by the first few people I knew who saw it.

Almost tempted now. Though I will want to punch the lead guy in the face for the entire duration of the show, so maybe I shouldn’t.


Keith Harris?

That was the reason I never took to 'Scrubs'.

Ah, Scrubs was great! We were talking about it last night, actually. Has my favourite ever joke in it, which is kind of hard to write, but:

‘Mr Rogers, it’s pronounced ænalgesic... you put them in your mouth’.

It's not brilliant or anything; the actual plots are generally very derivative of Star Trek and other sci-fi shows (one of the episodes rips off the Black Mirror episode Nosedive for instance) but there's something about the characters I like. For all the abuse A Million Ways to Die in the West got I found the central relationship very convincing and they pull off a similar trick here, while still essentially just being Star Trek with dick jokes.

Yep, it's totally Star Trek TNG with dick jokes. If you removed the more out of place humour, you could transplant the crew of the 1701D into pretty much every episode and it would be a perfect fit.

The courtroom scene where they were deciding the fate of Bortus' daughter could have easily had Riker arguing the case.

The Punisher is really good innit.

Your man Shane holds the screen splendidly (he was arguably one of the strongest characters in TWD), and the rest of the cast are fine too.

The violence is satisfyingly crunchy and squishy, and the action sequences are exciting, although I've noticed a few continuity errors here and there.

It's still a bit 'filler-esque' sometimes (nothing as bad as Luke Cage though, at least not yet), but overall a very good watch.

Shane is also good in Snitch, which is an okay film if you can get over the fact that The Rock is playing an ordinary dude. He acts it perfectly well, but he's the size of a fucking train.

Yeah it suffers from the same issue of spending too much time with underdeveloped side characters and plots that all the other Marvel/Netflix stuff has, but it's less of a problem than it is here than in the other shows.

I love that article almost as much as I love The Rock.

"[The Rock is] like someone looked at a tank and decided it didn't look aggressive enough so bolted two arms on the side of it."
