Yet somehow I feel like the high quality cgi in yesterday's episode of Orville still cost much less (and also looked more like Star Trek cgi) than what Discovery spent and produced for their cgi, despite having at least double the budget.First, IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME!
Second, maybe all the touchy/feely eps with static sets and low CGI (low cost) were necessary to pay for the intense (high cost) CGI for this.
They just haven't quite figured out how to do that as of yet. I'm sure it'll likely happen in their future.I was finally able to watch Thursday’s episode. After we finally get to see the Kaylon home world, I wonder about a great many things.The biggest is why such an intellectually advanced construct as the Kaylons would not have eliminated the humanoid form as being inefficient and too restrictive to allowing them to advance past their current physical form.
I figured Issac was shaped as he was to ease interactions with the crew of the Orville.
I am unable to Google that one. Can you try expressing that thought again? (Galaxy Quest was the DVD I accidentally returned to Best Buy along with the crappy player I bought from them. )Galaxy Quest (Orville dragging Theta bombs) undertones.
Krylon the paint? Kryolan the makeup?Every time I hear Issac's home world mentioned, Kylon, I think of Kraylon ...
No no! I bought it, watched it, enjoyed it thoroughly and more than I expected, and accidentally lost it in a DVD player I returned to Best Buy.You've NEVER seen Galaxy Quest? What's wrong with you? Go IMMEDIATELY to wherever you get your videos, get it, and watch it. You are going to love it.
Ha! I edited my post above to include that part which apparently you did not see. No, they did not kill Sarris himself. So now I don't know how this relates to the Orville.You don't remember the scene where the Galaxy Quest is dragging the space mines, and they use them to kill Sarris and his ship?
I believe he beamed aboard the Protector, where he was merely knocked out and not killed, only to rise up and come out of the command module once it had crash landed into the stage.Oh yeah, forgot he beamed down on the stage, and they vaporized him.
OK, I watched the end again, and it did appear Orville was in the lead. If those are called theta bombs, I missed it.Anyway, what does it matter whether the Orville was "dragging the mines" versus they are independently piloted? Still has GQ overtones.
The Orville guys were concerned earlier because they "detected theta radiation" they tracked them to those ships/mines/whatever they were being constructed. They mention how dangerous theta radiation is to organic lifeforms. They destroy all organic life, but LEAVE all the buildings, etc alone. Completely stolen from Star TrekOK, I watched the end again, and it did appear Orville was in the lead. If those are called theta bombs, I missed it.
