    I think they are trying to do stand alone episodes with little or no extended plots that need two or three episodes to wrap up, which tends to make the episode seem a little rushed sometimes. I agree they are tackling some difficult issues and are doing a fine job of going through them.

    Each episode seems to be improving and they are definitely finding their groove.

    Wave Man, the term "wave man" is the English translation of 'Ronin' (Japanese word) and literately translates to "wandering person" and in a modern context a WaveMan is one who is socially adrift or a SalaryMan who is between employers.

    looks like The Orville might get renewed for at least one more season, showing solid numbers

    every episode gets better with The Orville, and they have hit their groove, finding the balance between humor, plot and character development. The Orville is definitely a homage rather than a spoof of Trek.

    I've watched every episode of Discovery and The Orville, but I only look forward to The Orville as I find the show to be fun and a solid homage to Trek that I enjoy watching. With Discovery, I just have the forlorn, so far, hope of the next episode not being worse than the last one.

    I just watched the most recent episode "Cupid's Dagger" and while I won't discuss the plot, there is an element of this episode that deserves mentioning as it is something that usually gets overlooked. The aliens in this episode were so phenomenal that they actually exceeded the bar set by TNG/DS9/Voyager. These aliens were humanoid, but their appearance was not the typical forehead of the week ilk that were standard for Star Trek. I was extremely impressed and this aspect of the series is just another example of why The Orville is a serious Science Fiction setting despite the humor that is part of the series.
