The Orville’s now almost totally shed its comedy roots and transmorphed into a late-90s space scifi serial. Season 3 was a “replatforming”, that saw a new titlecard (The Orville – New Horizons), and longer episode lengths – which made for slightly more self-indulgent plotlines. As well as this, the writers leant into reincorporation/revisiting of story elements from previous series. Mostly, still wonderful. I struggle a bit with the idea that the Federation’s completely forgiven the Kaylon for trying to brutally wipe them out, given that it was all based on a misunderstanding.
