Dayum!!! The Orville.. Well Damn

So I finally had time to sit down and watch the series The Orville. The show was well executed and beyond my expectation, I expected a turd of a show and was given more than I was prepared to digest. As I sat watching the first several episodes, I wondered what was my reasoning for avoiding this series for so long. The mixture of the silly jokes and science worked. While the show is a homage and shares some similarities to Star-Trek, the show feels more natural and is the best homage to that series. Orville takes the similarities of the show it emulated, flips the script, then adds in the humor in the right places and leaves you wondering on certain issues that they pursue.

One can forget that this show is pitched as a comedy, then come to find the show to be intelligent and fun and at times is believed to be more of a scifi show with a dash of comedic moments rather than the other way around. I also felt that they handle grim issues such as life and death quite well and in a generally serious manner. I almost forget that the show was created by Seth Macfarlane the creator of Family Guy and American Dad.

To conclude the show was not what I expected, I loved the science, the humor and the humanity that the show embodied. They did a great job and here is to binging the show when it airs season two.

DAYUM!!! Well #shera surprised me #netflix binged

So I recently binged the latest She-ra by Dreamworks and I have to say wow what a good damn job they did. It had humor but not an insane amount, it had character building, it had decent writing, the character designs were quite modern and fitting I was not displeased one bit. The animation did not look stiff it was very fluid. As an animator and character designer I was quite proud of what they accomplished. Naturally I am very critical and many seem to dislike that nature and I get most times get dubbed an ass or entitled etc but for this series I really had nothing to say. Dreamworks really went in on this and did not treat the audience like buffoons and I felt this series can inspire young people due to the various characters one being Glitter who was not the a-typical character design which I have to give them a thumbs up on. The humor reminds me of “Avatar The Last Airbender”. I won’t give too much away but check it out you will love it like I did. One thing I will say when the horse makes a reintroduction later in the series you will laugh. #shera
