    Ok so the big debate right now is which new Sci Fi show is better? Seth McFarland's comedy/drama Orville, OR the new CBS All Access show Star Trek Discovery.

    I'm having a tough time deciding which one I like better. BUT I am leaning towards Orville. Orville is more accessible (it's on broadcast TV), it has a good mix of humor AND drama, and it seems to take inspiration from, and pay homage to Star Trek's of the past. It's fresh and new at the same time.

    Star Trek Discovery on the other hand started out slow, BUT has gotten better with the last couple episodes. I also like how the episodes are building on each other, in a story arc (like the last seasons of Enterprise). Things I don't like, is it's seeming to be a bit too much out there, and too strange if you know what I mean. And it's a bit too much of a departure from other Star Trek's of the past.

    I guess I'm really talking myself in to Orville here, BUT I will still be watching Discovery, and enjoying it. Anyways what do you all think, Orville or Discovery?

    I think Orville has my vote for now. I find it to be a more interesting. I will continue to watch both though because I enjoy Space shows.

    Orville - it explores societal conventions as well as space a la TOS but with more humor and less warp drive. The first episode seemed a little floundering but it really hooked me after the second.

    Liking Orville more because of the humor.

    Orville. Star Trek is dark and has no humor in it.

    Orville is fresh and Adrianne Palicki

    I've not watched either, but now I am definitely going to check out Orville (and maybe Star Trek since I too like Space Shows)

    Like Annie_i6s, I’ve yet to watch either show, but I plan on watching both at some point.

    Love both.

    Orville is a bit "spoofier," but still remarkably interesting IMHO.

    Discovery is better than I would have imagined. I'm far from a true Trekkie, but I like it immensely.

    I haven’t even bothered watching the new Star Trek and I’m a huge Trekkie. Orville has my vote

    Orville for sure. Definitely captures more of that special something that made Star Trek enjoyable. Watching Orville has a warm familiarity to it.

    Discovery is trying too hard to please both long time fans and new era Kelvin Timeline fans, and so far they’re not doing either timeline justice.
