    S02.E11: Lasting Impressions

    Eh, either way, Disney now owns The Orville. Back to the whole break thing, for some reason, I am not too worried since renewal/cancelations have to have already been made up by now. At least for a show like The Orville and it has been getting some solid ratings. Although, overall, the show is still on the fence and if it had a few more million live viewers then it would be in a very safe spot. Edit: Disney bought out the entire FOX entertainment department (I do know that FOX News and some sports were not part of the deal but Disney pretty much owns (now) everything currently airing on FOX).

    Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the MCU

    I saw Captain Marvel last week but I didn't remember seeing anything resembling with what we saw on AoS being used in that movie. The Kree seems to have always been presented as blue but in the comics, they do come from, a planet called Hala some with or without hair, and there is a non-blue minority (and didn't the comics have also established that they had blue blood). Overall it seems the move added the question of what happened to dead Skrull SHIELD supposedly had but it didn't (as far as I noticed) no "inspiration" from AoS. Also, the Kree were in GotG Vol 1 and we (I guess since Korath was in the first film and is said to be a Kree) did see a non-blue Kree in that film. Also, Nova Prime is seen talking to a representative of the Kree (they are talking about Ronin since its implied he was going rogue and working with Thanos) that was probably used (model wise) for some AoS season 5 Kree. Also, the secret base was supposedly either Project Pegusas and that was established (I believed) in The Avengers.

    Simpsons In The Media: I'm Kent Brockman

    I saw this and I think it should be shared here. Its an interview in a Q&A format with The Simpsons' Showrunner Al Jean. They talk about a lot of different stuff (including Luke Perry's passing) but here it the bit about the whole Michael Jackson episode. The quotes are taken from two different sections of the interview: https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-simpsons-boss-al-jean-michael-jackson-used-the-show-to-groom-boys?ref=hom

    Simpsons In The Media: I'm Kent Brockman

    I can totally understand why they may want to pull the episode but I would just keep it on the DvDs/Blu-Rays just because it happened (mind you I don't think most people knew what was going on ). In my opinion, its kind of like trying to erase the past a bit. Edit: I also believe that at one point I might've had that album and I never knew he was involved with that.

    Okay, I get way but does that mean that Lisa It's Your Birthday is no longer going to be heard anymore?

    S02.E10: Blood of Patriots

    Somehow I didn't notice that.

    S02.E10: Blood of Patriots

    At first, I thought that Oren's 'daughter" would turn out to be the mysterious weapon but then the Krill captain didn't care for whether or not the "daughter" so it had to be something else. I liked this episode a lot and somehow this made me like Gordon much more. The dude was obviously torn about who to have loyalties to but he realized that being a terrorist isn't the answer, even if it was his friend wanting to attack the Krill. This was a great episode, and Scott Grimes really played the part amazingly well. But I did see his double take with Talla once she confronted him in the shuttle bay. Also, smart that they made sure that their shuttles have spacesuits and an airlock- it's like they thought it out or something. Then again, Mercer knew about Oren (because Malloy went to Mercer but we never saw it) and probably helped set up the entire escape route- maybe.

    S02.E09: Identity, Part II

    I know that most of the inspiration for the show comes from Star Trek, especially the TNG era but overall, the Kaylons never remind me of the Borg or even the Founders. They seem to be something more along the lines of robots rising up and killing their creators and every other living being in the universe trope. That is why they reminded me more of the Cylons (and that Kaylons also sound a lot like Cylons and they are not a combination of a living organism being assimilated into a collective). Of course, the Kaylons don't look like the human Cylons (like Ones, Twos, Threes, Sixes, Sevens, and Eights) but the way they talk about wanting to eliminate all biological life and that all biological life is just like their creators would, in my mind, put them much closer to the BSG Cylons.

    I always felt they were more like the Cylons from Battlestar BSG. The way Primary kept on talking about their creators and how they were enslave made me feel like I was watching Cavil on BSG but without the religious angle.

    S02.E09: Identity, Part II

    I liked this episode and I am happy that it wasn't a simulation nor a test but something real. Also, yeah, Isaac saves the crew at the last minute but I still like it. And I also like how Dr. Finn was a bit more wary of Isaac than before and she actually shows conflicted towards him.

    Wasn't it implied that they wanted to kill all biologicals? Just like what they did with their creators? As with the lug nuts- they probably all worship Mom as well.

    That is a possibility I hope they don't go down.

    S02.E08: Identity, Part I

    I liked this episode and I hope that the conclusion is just as good as this episode. My thoughts: - The entire episode reminded me more of that one episode of Futurama where Fry and Leela were stuck on that robot planet. They even had a "we hate all biologicals" just like in Futurama. - Kaylons= Cylons. Of course, it makes sense. - my guess is that they are not going to allow Isaac to be full-on evil and/or not going to write him off. So, I would guess that at some point in the next episode he would help save The Orville and Union from his Kaylon brothers and may find a way to disconnect himself from his home planet. - For Orville standards, this episode really took a dark turn but it was really good as well. Like I was blown away by how things just developed and it was great.

    S02.E07: Deflectors

    Oh, you are right. I have forgotten about that Moclan. But for the most part they are written as a planet of the hats type and so are the Krill.
