[Vanity] I'm Done...The "Orville" has Jumped the Shark...for me.
Me ^ | 1/4/2018 | The Dread Pirate Roberts

Posted on 01/04/2019 7:30:14 PM PST by Bloody Sam Roberts

I have had it. I just watched the latest episode of "The Orville".

But this latest episode, "Primal Urges" pissed me off to NO end.

Let's forget the overall subject of "gay" porn addiction by a completely non-human species, and the total delve into how that affected the ship and crew...and the clear homosexual overtones.

I cannot let pass the behavior of the sudo-Klingon character of Bortis who stood by and watched a woman say goodbye to her family...husband and son...of which there was a good 30-60 second scene...and our Uber Macho "hero" did NOTHING to save her.

His behavior...given his mission to save as many people as possible from a planet soon to be destroyed by an exploding star...was simply unconscionable. He should have grabbed her and pushed her onto the shuttle with her family and closed the door. A sacrifice? Possibly. But...if necessary...YES.

Yet he chose to save his own sorry ass. Not good.

Maybe I'm wrong. But I would not have hesitated to push her onto the shuttle and then close the doors. That was the mission. Save as many people as possible.

Yes...I know this is fiction and supposed comedy but really? Why would such a feel good, heroic moment be overlooked? Except...by those who JUST DON'T GET IT.

The writers of this show have exposed themselves to be far less than worthy of my viewership. I'm done with this type of BS.

I cannot believe...and I hope...that I am not the only one who noticed this and whose hackles rose while watching this.

Am I too old school? Am I a dinosaur? Are there no others who would have done...oh...I dunno...the RIGHT thing?

I'm sorry. But sometimes...I get pissed.

I'm sorry for posting a vanity but...this will be only my second one in the 18 years I've been here on FR.

Cut me a little slack.

I ever watched a minute of the show, so I will have to take your word for it.

Watching Leftist programming reminds me a lot of how our kids who used to act out just to upset us. And lest someone want to remind me how old Seth is, Leftists simply DO NOT advance beyond 14 years of age.

I’m shocked to learn that that show is still on the air.

Thanks for the post.

I’ve never had any desire to see the show and now I have even less.

Not by me brother. Not by me any longer. And I had hopes. Meh. No great loss.

Thank you for the warning. I have the latest episode on my DVR but haven’t yet watched it. I’ve seen every previous episode of the Orville, but this is a good time to delete it and spend my limited television viewing time on the four seasons of Babylon 5 that I never saw. It’s a shame that the lefty mentality has destroyed contemporary television.

Was the “hero” the only qualified pilot/starship operator/essential crewman? If he were absent, could the ship be flown, be navigated, land safely?

TV programming? Huh? Complaining about that is like complaining about stale cigarettes, like who smokes anymore?

TV is so yesteryear.

99% of “entertainment” is anti conservative, anti-life propaganda.

Don’t waste your time on it unless you KNOW it’s a pro-conservative, life affirming message.

>>Leftists simply DO NOT advance beyond 14 years of age.

bears repeating although much of the discussion from the press rooms and network snark news reeks of a 6th grader lunchroom mentality.

Tried watching a few episodes when it hit the air last year, didn't like it. At all.

The show lost me when the last episode season one proposed that God is a delusion and that believers are superstitious.

Go unto Babylon 5 good FRiend. It is classic and worth viewing again and again. I have the full series on DVD and am getting close to diving in again from the beginning...after 10 years.

"And so, it begins..."

I never understood why people voluntarily pay and subject themselves to viewing garbage that denigrate their own values.

That’s what the off switch is for.
