    It's not terrible but it certainly isn't worth paying for. We did our free week to watch "The Good Fight." Then watched the rest via kodi.

    I loved Burn Notice. And Psych.

    The new TV season has begun. Just watched The Orville on FOX. Seth McFarlane is the star. It was kind of like a cross between a Star Trekkie show and Galaxy Quest. It was not bad. Nothing else on. I will continue until something else might be on.

    The Galaxy Quest comparison is the main one I've seen popping up, and I've gotta agree it's like if GQ was an actual show. I was a fan, though some of the jokes fell flat. That may simply be because it's live action so the usual delivery of McFarlane's jokes don't translate as well as they do via animation. I'll probably throw it onto the DVR and see what comes of it.

    I thought The Orville was pretty funny. Nice setup and some good spoofing of sci-fi tropes.

    Definitely a send-up of Star Trek; lots of parallels to the pilot episode of TNG.

    I enjoyed it; not as much as Futurama, but it'll stay in the rotation.

    Scrubs is on Netflix. I should look for Psych. I wasn't able to watch all the episodes as they aired because they conflicted with my hockey schedule. Burn Notice never did anything for me. House was great at times, but at others I found it to be some of the most boring TV that I felt compelled to watch.

    I missed it yesterday, but I'm hoping it's on Hulu today. Most Fox stuff is. I'm excited to see it. MacFarlane has always been a Trekkie, even appearing in a couple episodes of Enterprise as a bit player during its run.

    Cutty was boring and House's interactions with her after the first season were tedious. She suffered from Major Houlihan Syndrome: once she stopped being a foil and became an ally, there was no earthly reason for her to exist.

    Re: TV: The Golden Era Reborn

    Critics of course seem to hate The Orville and I think this guy nails why they're wrong.

    As many critics have pointed out, this isn't a spoof of Star Trek. It's not exactly an homage either. The best way I can describe it is that MacFarlane wanted to make a Star Trek show that recalls that franchise's earlier days, back before it became an action blockbuster film series and before the TV shows started becoming dark and grim and edgy. MacFarlane is making his own version of the original Star Trek, and he is a new Captain Kirk. All the optimism and sincerity and lightheartedness of that show is here, and in many ways it's kind of wonderful. I'm honestly surprised something like this exists.
    I hate it when critics miss the point of things, like talking about how MacFarlane's character "doesn't feel like a real starship captain like Kirk." LOL, that's whole *ing point! He supposed to be a crappy captain!

    Psych was on Netflix until last year, now it is not streaming anywhere that I know of.

    Watched a couple of episodes of Norsemen last night on Netflix. Pretty well done parody of 8th century vikings. Norwegian made series with a humor you will recognize if you have Norskies in your family or home. Fun if you like that kind of humor (I did, but I'm one of them)--don't know how long it will remain funny, though.

    I watched The Deuce on HBO tonight.

    I'm not sold but there is great potential. I'm definitely going to watch episode 2. I'm trying to figure out where this thing is going or if it's just going to be another The Night Of.
