I like Seth McFarlane. This looks like good fun.

Woof. Yeah, I don't know. I want to like this. I like some of the cast. I think Seth MacFarlane is a funny guy. But he's a terrible actor. I'm not thrilled that he's front and center in this. But, I'll give it a go. See what it's like. Adrianne Palicki looks like she's gonna own this.

Have had a lot of fun with this so far. Lots better than I imagined. Look forward to the new episode each week.

I liked the first episode, but haven't seen the rest yet. It seems nice.

I've never liked anything Seth Macfarlane has done, so I'm as surprised as anyone.

And that was arguably the worst episode. The fourth episode was great.

I just started recording this last night, I hope I'll just be able to jump in to the story.

I loved the first episode. It’s everything Discovery should be.

Im hearing it's actually better than Discovery and it's played straight just with comedy elements, not flat out gag after gag.

Gonna wait til the seasons over and binge watch em.

True. The only bad part of the show is when they miss with a joke, and even repeat it. But it’s a legit drama as well, with serious decisions, and people dying. Sometimes it is even really funny.

I read somewhere that McFarlane had pitched a Star Trek show to CBS a few years back. If this is what became of it, they should’ve taken it.

Just got caught up last night. Great show. That most current episode was pretty weird, tho.
