    A bit of Galaxy Quest feel here.

    It has been unmistakably inspired by Galaxy Quest. No doubt about it!

    This looks cool. It is the Southpark guy, so how can it at not least be funny enough to watch? I really need some good new shows to watch.

    Family guy and south park I would consider a bit on the really 'dumb' side of comedy. Both are made from the same creator as this show, yes, but when you see how stupid and ridiculously moronic the shows got, I just wonder how they managed to last that long. At one stage it got so stupid that simpsons has tried to copy it and ruined the charm it had and now the simpsons has turned into family guy. Random. At least with this series, he tries to make an attempt to make it sound funny which I hope it lasts.

    Stupid humor, yep. But at times, still damn funny.

    I have always wanted more spoof tv shows on tv. I am not sure why such a great concept has not been well adopted. We saw it with movies, like spaceballs which is by far the best spoof movie on the planet.

    Family Guy, The Clevelands, and American Dad were created by the Seth MacFarlane, et al. South Park was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Trey Parker and Matt Stone have made it clear in interviews and in the writing of certain South Park episodes that do not think highly of the writing for Family Guy.

    Looks like we will be getting the traditional star trek series from the Orville :). Written by one of the executive producers.

    PERFECT! This YouTube video explains Discovery's coming FAIL perfectly. It's gonna completely fail, and I think it will take Moonves and CBS by surprise because they evidently did not check in with the fans, have not done ANY market research or previews, and have no idea what Star Trek actually is supposed to be. Neither did JJ. It's gonna fail, but there will be a handful of NuTrek fans out there who will whine because the real Trek fans will hate on it. They will whine about how "old" Trek was so bad, how us "old" Trek fans should be more open-minded and such. GAH. I hated it after seeing the very first trailer.
