For me, the first season of the Orville didn't contain enough jokes to be a humorous take on TNG. I was expecting something a bit closer to Galaxy Quest, in some regards. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't funny.

Season 2 basically dropped almost all pretence at humour from what I could tell (I didn't watch too closely). Again, it wasn't at all bad, but I wasn't blown away by it. Not seen Season 3. I suspect I'll half-watch it at some point but I'm not rushing to do so.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Boys. A show which takes great pleasure in becoming more and more outrageous as it has developed. I've no idea where we're going to end up next season, which is always a good thing.

They boys felt like early supernatural. Where it keeps going more and more horrendous / broken / deep

Hopefully it'll get a good ending, unlike supernatural that felt pretty obvious that one of the early season (iirc 3 or 4) was supposed to be the ending.

after keeps hearing a bunch of people hyping grey's anatomy, finally i watched the 1st episode.

uh. do they don't have an MD as a consultant? for example there was a scene where defib was used to resuscitate a patient that went flatline. AFAIK, in reality, defib was used to handle arrhythmia.

It's primarily used for that but it is also used in CPR if the heart needs a jolt to start working again. If the heart has completely stopped then a defibrillator is unlikely to help.

From Wikipedia.

Defibrillation is often an important step in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).[6][7] CPR is an algorithm-based intervention aimed to restore cardiac and pulmonary function.[6] Defibrillation is indicated only in certain types of cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (VF) and pulseless ventricular tachycardia.[1][2] If the heart has completely stopped, as in asystole or pulseless electrical activity (PEA), defibrillation is not indicated. Defibrillation is also not indicated if the patient is conscious or has a pulse. Improperly given electrical shocks can cause dangerous dysrhythmias, such as ventricular fibrillation.[1]

Lacking a pulse isn't necessarily an indication that a person's heart has completely stopped functioning. So there's a chance that even if a machine is showing no pulse (flatline) that the heart could still be resuscitated.

whoa whoa. the orville ending, so goood!

aliens are aliens, different perspectives, lesson learned, etc all wrapped up in 1 nice epusode

EDIT:
despite how ridiculous and "fake" the orville looks in lots of aspects, the Orville felt more real than other more realistic-looking shows. its crazy.

Yes Orville finale was very good.
There's been some complaint that its 'going out with a whimper' but I think a very pleasant way to finish the season.
& possibly outright šŸ˜­
Apparently they haven't been renewed as of yet, rumored that actors have been released & sets taken down which would be a massive tragedy given they've clearly put a lot of extra money into this season and how good its been.
There's a bunch of plot lines wrapped up nicely here but plenty still open to follow-on in a new season

I'm inclined to think they might have been better to do 20 half-length episodes to give some of the plotlines their own 'quiet' episodes instead of these fewer but long all-action episodes so that this one didn't seem so different? But maybe it being so different makes it better?


I haven't really enjoyed this season of For All Mankind.
Taking it to Mars & the 90s with black Elon Jobs character & smartphones feels like too much.
This penultimate episodes' cliff-hanger feels like a jump the shark imo.
Its not like its badly written though, maybe younger ppl who didn't grow up in 80/90s would find it acceptable like I'm OK with what they did with the 60/70s? :unsure:


Upcoming GoT prequel, Lower Decks, Andor & Rings of Power lots of potential goodness/terrible disappointment upcoming :runaway:
