Seth MacFarlane’s Star Trek spoof, The Orville has just dropped its first trailer and it’s pretty funny!
However, I haven’t really made up my mind about Seth MacFarlane yet. On one hand, he brought us Family Guy; on the other, he wrote the worst comedy of 2014, A Million Ways to Die in the West. He wrote the surprisingly funny Ted and then butchered his own property with Ted 2. You get the drill.
With that in mind, I won’t be tuning into The Orville later this year with high expectations. Having said that, this first trailer cracked me up on a few different occasions. Check out the hilarious trailer below.
Just in case it isn’t obvious enough, The Orville is a Star Trek spoof. Again, I’m on the fence about this. Spoofs have always left a bitter taste in my mouth because of movies like Epic Movie, Dance Flick and Fifty Shades of Black – why did I even watch this one *facepalm*. But seeing as how Jon Favreau will be directing the pilot, I’ll definitely give it a shot.
The Orville will air Thursdays (US time) later this year on Fox.
