Ending today’s trailers on a high note. Full disclosure: I love Seth MacFarlane. Yes, I know, this is rich coming from the chick that just unzipped and whizzed all over Ready Player One, but the thing is, MacFarlane is brutally funny. He’s the smart ass I aspire to be, and his voice is just perfect. Sometimes, he missteps, but he’s got a great knack for being able to deliver a joke that just works because it’s familiar to us, whether it’s a life situation or a cultural reference. He’s trying his hand at space spoof, in the grand tradition of an inevitable comparison to Galaxy Quest. Here’s the trailer for the Star Trek spoof The Orville, headed our way soon.
Yeah, this film is totally going to get comparisons to the madcap adventures of Galaxy Quest, but I think it’s going to be even more self-aware and sarcastic, which can only be a good thing. As a bonus, we’re getting Scott Grimes in this! I freaking love Scott Grimes! Watching a group of smart ass coworkers in space is going to be fantastic. I don’t care if it winds up sucking. This is totally getting my money.
