A group of people who think there’s is nothing beyond their world and what they see is all there is? Sounds like atheism to me

I didn't even know this show existed, I'm glad you made me aware of it.

It sounds like this is the direction Star Trek should have gone, instead of that STD garbage.

This was the best episode by vote in our home. It was right on target and certainly seems to be a cautionary tale of what we could see in our not so distant future. It was awesome. Love The Orville and we can't wait for the second season. Here's hoping it is longer.

There's something I really must elaborate here about your statement of the meaning of intent. Intent is just the beginning. It is reaching the goal of the intent that matters the most. People mess up, with or without good intentions.

Episode 4 is pretty much a straight ripoff of Robert Heinlein's novel "Orphans of the Sky", in concept if not in detail.

Peoples believe what you show them. they will not check if its true and will judge it. I also like the episode where one of them was taught to be a goddess when she use her instrument to heal the little girl. it can be interpreted as "Jesus" action 2000 + years ago and peoples think that he's a god or son of a god. i like the Orville because its show and talk about "taboo" subject elsewhere and in real life.

Justice is only justice these days, if delivered by a lynch mob. I absolutely LOVE The Orville. I am also a big Star Trek fan. I was in love with this series from the point that the blue guy 'Popped' his head in series 1, episode one. Loved it, and the comedy is a fantastic blend of comedy and spoof - it is brilliant.

Yep - On the point! This is becoming a bigger and bigger problem with our modern world. All the #Mygooddeed stuff on Facebook and Twitter point to how we are giving up our own intrinsic moral compass for a mass media and mob driven social conformity that is provably immoral in many cases?

Ah my favorite Orville episode...it's where I see Earth going soon. You're right, it's why I try to avoid social media. I sometimes wonder, "Why and/or how did this go viral" or "How do that many people know how to search or have time to search for that stuff?" But I need to prepare for my "Apology Tour", please give me a thumbs up, or not, maybe I'd like being lobotomized :P

I need to watch this show. Family Guy recently did an episode where Brian made a Tweet about black people and people got offended over it and he had to leave his home because the Griffins lives were ruined over it
Brilliant commentary ! Thanks!
Papa J (3 months ago)
My main problem with this show is the humans are modern day people in a future setting, much like his appearance in a million ways to die in the west (maybe it is him on the "holodeck".) It is in huge contrast to the well written alien characters that fit the setting.
Did this episode come out before or after the Harvey Weinstein/Metoo scandal? Because if the story was written beforehand as I suspect it was, it’s almost prophetic just how identical to reality that episode was. It’s supposed to be a far-off dystopic world in classic sci-fi style as a cautionary tale to not go down an authoritarian path. And here in reality, we are already so forgone that the exaggeration, the slippery slope, is actually the same as real life. That’s what makes it so scary.

Good job, this was the most poignant of the Orville's episodes and worlds above the crap that STD (Star Trek Diversity) has done with it's over the top SJW propaganda. This and the episode with the two male aliens who birth a female which is against the rules of their society were the two best episodes IMO. Now that DISNEY owns FOX we can be assured that either this show will be outright cancelled or Seth will be pushed out due to them surrounding him with their sycophantic yes women/men who will fall inline with their SJW agenda. The last Jedi style. I'm sooooooooo upset by Disney buying Fox.

There is a problem in the UK with Indian/Pakistani call centers scamming people. We are told NOT to trust any call that has someone on the other end with a thick accent. Plus the fact that there is a several second pause before someone speaks usually give it away. This is not racist as we were told the same thing with African and yes even Irish accents years prior due to criminal gangs scamming people from those areas. Legitimate UK based call centers try not to have anyone with an accent anymore because of this, sometimes it's unavoidable, but they try not to have people with thick accents.

After watching the 2017 reboot of it just two days ago I was talking to a family member about why it’s not scary to me. Because monsters and creepy stuff aren’t that scary because they’re so unrealistic. What’s truly scary is this mass hysteria that’s rife within the ‘court of public opinion’ and this video perfectly hits the nail on the head. We’re already heading in this direction and there are already hugely severe consequences for not being ridiculously pc. Ask 10 random people if they respect people’s beliefs that don’t align with their own and likely all 10 will say yes. But then ask them about the guy from google that pointed out the hypocrisy of not hiring white people in order to be more diverse and less ‘racist’. Who the media chastised and misquoted and saying women shouldn’t be allowed around computers. He had a well reasoned, researched and rational point based in facts but was fired and crucified in the media as a sexist and racist. Never mind the fact his paper was completely right, how is that respecting someone’s beliefs when you don’t agree? A global society where the most active people are irrational, quick to judge, slow to think and believe context doesn’t matter and the truth is whatever you believe is truly frightening. I’ll take a zombie apocalypse over that any day.
Drax Destroyer (3 months ago)
Your videos are on point you use facts and stuff but it seems you only comment on one side of the argument and not noting how often times things are offensive more times than one might perceive, how maybe when people blow minor things out of proportion it takes the light off of actual things that are happening that idk two wrongs dont make a right ect ect

Gaelic is a language subgroup of the larger Celtic family which accounts for Irish and Scottish, whereas Welsh is part of the Brittonic subgroup. If criticism can be directed at someone of European ancestry who differentiates against Celtic people negatively, this would be xenophobia. If a black person said 'all Irish are thieves', technically that is racist.

Jakk Frost (3 months ago)
You didn't mention how in the beginning of the episode, they showed how the girl voted the man down just because she didn't like the look of his eyes, which proved her later statement that people wouldn't bother to actually get informed. Myself, I only had one real quibble with the episode, and that was the way LaMarr got himself busted. It was extremely sloppy and just felt far too forced, him acting up in such a ridiculously crude manner like that and completely ignoring orders to stop. Especially when Alara's later "crime" was much more organic to the plot, being an analog to our own ridiculous so-called "cultural appropriation" craze.

I only ever saw the episode that tackled transgenderism. I was surprised something like that was aired, with how things are nowadays. Basically it poked at how people encourage those who suffer with gender dysphoria to change themselves, rather than learn to accept who they are.

'Unlicensed tradesmen'. So much for demanding the use of 'person' in a job\trades description. I guess when talking about something bad they have no problem using the 'sexist' men suffix.

How I would apologize if were a celebrity getting criticism for speaking my mind: I’m sorry to all of the people I’ve offended that you have to live a life so miserable that you go around looking for thing to be triggered by. I’m also sorry that your small can’t comprehend that other people can have different opinions from one other without losing their minds and acting as if I had attacked them personally. I will not however, apologize for having my own opinion and being my own person. Good day.

The Australian minister dumb comment about the Irish accent thing was dumb, the mob that was outrage at what she said should be rightly so as the comment had some stupidly racist like meaning in the way she worded it but since she apologise, that should be it, its not like she did anything actually racist or disgusting so, saying she should be fired over small matters is dumb.
MrGrownman455 (4 months ago)
I have to be honest, I will never filter myself because someone's feelings. IF they get offended then they better get over it because I will sleep good at night either way

Dave, your comments on the Australian minister are pure horse shit. Words matter and it is offensive. That said there is a lot of truth in your general thesis about moral outrage and social media. Btw I did really enjoy this episode of the Orville.

Thank you for this video. I assumed The Orville was just another SJW parody (read: mocking) series of something actually brilliant such as Star Trek, and so have been avoiding it like the plague. Because of your video, I may just have a look at it.

Important analysis of a serious social problem: scapegoating and mob violence through social media. The whole "doxxing" phenomenon is indicative of this problem. It has not been properly recognized and addressed, which is why this episode of The Orville is important: it has exposed a phenomenon that everyone was afraid to talk about openly. This is the power of fiction and comedy: to expose uncomfortable truths, to serve as a mirror for our society.

potstab (5 months ago)
The show is a big stinker as the comedy and serious balance is totally off. I mean it probably could either be a good "serious" flick or a straight out "comedy". The joke's are at the very basest level and at the most inappropriate times. I wanted to like it but it made my stomach turn. Should rename the show to "jacka$$ in space".
Dack Ralter (5 months ago)
Edit: Just watched half of the first episode: Loving it so far. Funny. No obvious emphasis on identity politics (not much yet anyways). The ship is beautiful, and the aesthetic style in general is excellent! Many people seem to be increasing resentful of some things they don't even understand, and that resentment has had its' flames fanned by anyone who wants to use the people who are "outraged". Which has been made simple by all the emphasis on anti-bullying, anti-offense, and "lets be nice to everyone all the time" policies being spread in schools at all levels. Where is this resentment, and angst coming from? Probably social media, the amount of insanely exaggerated and impersonal interconnections we feel these days, the media's emphasis on sharing stories about bad things happening, and the various other insecurity, unstable, chaotic, uncertain, high-speed, fast-paced, changes that can happen to seemingly anyone at any time these days. We are biologically perfected to live as hunter-gatherers in small groups of 5 to 50, with villages of maybe 500 being about the limit of pre-agricultural society. Does anyone even know history anymore? The perspective that comes with knowing history, even just the history of the 20th century, would be really useful to bring back. Oh wait, it's dominated by white males doing things to expand the edges of understanding & exploration.... so that's... bad? No. actually that's just the way life is. It doesn't mean women and the traditional feminine role is somehow lesser, it is just the way it is.... but all this identity garbage refuses that as some sort of racism... so I won't watch or support that mess; it's just a bunch of denial of reality and lies; which I think is so dangerous it could be the termite swarm that eats the foundations and causes the collapse of everything when a storm comes in conjunction.

"If the Stars Should Appear" is just a rehash of an overused sci-fi concept paired with rabid anti-faith bigotry.
