Out of the Blue

Happy autumn to the northern hemisphere and happy spring to those in the southern. It's actually not here yet, as the autumnal equinox is today at 4:02 pm EDT, but we don't need to split hairs here. This is a little less jarring for me this year than it often is, as I have a friend in Australia who has been posting pictures of flowers from her garden lately, but I do admit to almost deliberately ignoring the earlier sundowns lately and the smattering of fallen leaves on the lawn.

For those asking about The Orville, it's just OK. After seeing the first three episodes, the overall production strikes me as a bigger budget but slightly less Canadian SyFy offering than Dark Matter (which I liked) or Killjoys (meh). The special effects and makeup are pretty good. The overall story ideas so far have great potential.

Unfortunately the writing and acting are, to me, stilted and hammy. I have a very hard time buying lead playing the captain. He just doesn't have the gravitas of the actors who played Kirk, Picard, Janeway or even the actor who plays Jim Holden in The Expanse. The comic elements are sitcom-safe funny which is to say mostly meh.

I'll probably watch a few more episodes to see if it gets better but it's not going to bother me if I forget.
