she explained that she was an immortal from "a future." All harking back to UFO tales and TT travellers. So, in a way, it was their Q moment.
Very confusing episode.
I thought: "Oh, no. The Orville has its own Q!"So, in a way, it was their Q moment.
I also thought that this is a story we have never had before on Star Trek, and are now unlikely to get in "Nu-Trek" (as you call it!)Overall, not their best episode, but it points out a key advantage of pre-00's Trek over Nu-Trek / Star Wars. The episodic format gives them freedom to borrow from a wide range of genres.
Well, okay! It was a little similar to some Q episodes, such as "Hide and Q," and for me those episodes were the worst of TNG, DS9 and VOY. That might have been through the overuse of Q. It is going to be extremely difficult, given all the Star Trek and Science Fiction TV that now exists, to make an Orville episode that someone doesn't go, "Oh! That's just a copy of X in that episode Y."...it was their Q moment.
I do hope not, because that would certainly become derivative and tiresome, and very quickly so.The Orville has its own Q!"
Worse, this exponentially advanced being cheerily told the crew that she would see them again.
The music continues to be one the best things about the Orville.Music was as good as ever with a good deal of homage paid to classic sci-fi franchises.
That is going to be a tall order, but what they're doing with the story elements and mixing them with genre's is something that I'll approve. I don't feel that they are doing anything really wrong, it's just so easy to refer the elements to known stuff. Their stuff is almost original.given all the Star Trek and Science Fiction TV that now exists, to make an Orville episode that someone doesn't go, "Oh! That's just a copy of X in that episode Y."
You read that headline correctly : We're giving this episode of "The Orville," entitled "Mortality Paradox," a perfect 10. And while this latest installment might not appeal to those fearful of flying — or stand-up paddleboarding, for that matter — it is nonetheless a mind-boggling, full-throttle, thrill-a-minute, plot-twisting, edge-of-seat adrenaline ride that will absolutely, positively keep you glued to your TV screens for every single second of its 60 minutes.
What makes this episode stand out from any other is the perfect balance of every variable — humor, drama, action, suspense. Moreover, the set pieces are beautifully framed and photographed and the set design is spot on. And the direction by Jon Cassar, writing by Cherry Chevapravatdumrong, and editing by Tom Costantino and Bart Rachmil — all of whom are long-time collaborators on "The Orville" — keep you guessing, quite literally, to the every end.
