The Orville keeps getting better and better while ST:Discovery keeps getting worse and worse. the universe is trying to keep itself balanced

I haven't seen the latest one - are we talking PC-limpness or generally bad ?

Well, considering the behind-the-scenes shenanigans and the credentials of the showrunners, it seems STD is just a further example of the old adage "garbage-in, garbage-out".

If you ignore the colossal stupidity on the part of the Discovery crew, yeah it was ok. We'll finally meet Spock in the next ep, I'm curious how they've implemented him, though I have the feeling it'll not be good.

Now, the last Orville ep, that was genuinely awesome. It might end predictably, Isaac siding with humans at the last second, but I won't mind if the implementation is good.

The thing about Orville is it doesn't take itself seriously but doesn't go OTT as a comedy. Its like Bender going to make his own casino with hookers as blackjacks
Take the episode where Bortus wanting lots of Moclans
