Seth MacFarlane fused Star Trek and Star Wars by taking "the best of both worlds"
1 March 2019 | by yoshimo-13129See all my reviews

With this episode of "The Orville" Seth MacFarlane fused TNG-era "Star Trek" and pre-Disney "Star Wars" into the second-most amazing TV show currently on air, right after "Game of Thrones". And should the show get renewed for a third season, it is going to be the number one after GoT wraps up in summer.

This was the conclusion of the most amazing two parter I've seen in a long time. It has become rare for bombastic special effects to mix up with an ingenious plot, amazing storytelling, sublime presentation, perfect pacing, great acting, astonishing music, nice sound effects, immersive camerawork and a pleasing cutting rate.

It's also terrific to see how little plot holes there were in this episode, especially when considering how difficult this is to achieve in a worldbuilding format like this. (Some of the show's earlier episodes had a few medium-level problems in that regard.)

I rarely give a straight 10/10, but I had to do it this time.
