This. I am tired of this species. The original idea, it seemed to me, was some commentary on the male nature vs. the female nature, in a society w/o the female nature, such as the planet was very poluted, the homes were undecorated, they made all the weapons for the Union but had no art or literature; and perhaps a politically safe zone to comment on homosexual issues (which ST:TNG did well in a past era with the episode about the non-gendered species).

This is like the fifth episode about these people. It is just not interesting.
Then don't watch it. :)

I too tire of the Moclans being used for social commentary all the time. But, still watching so far.
I thought the Moclans were supposed to be the Orville equivalent of Klingons. I just don't like how every episode with them has some storyline revolving around their gender issues, or some other nonsensical plot (porn addiction, going to pee, etc.).

This week's episode is based around time travel, which should be one of the more interesting episodes overall.

Finally ... we talk about someone other than Moclans ...

A very good looking Kelly .... 7 years ago and current ...

Now, did Adrianna Palicki play herself for both current and 7 yr younger versions ...
I'm thinking Yes, however, they were in the same scenes quite often.

And again this week my H3 recorded a half-hour of local news and a half-hour of some stupid game show. :mad: I'm on EA. This sucks. Yes, I can watch for free off fox.com, but then I am forced to watch their damnable commercials. These problems began when I enabled PTAT. Without sat locals, this doesn't record anything. But it is supposed to enable autohop. I see a red kangaroo icon here and there, but thus far I haven't seen that work and anyhow, now I don't have a recording of the last 2 episodes of The Orville.

Can you set up a normal Recording outside of the PTAT set up ?
What happens if you turn the PTAT off ? (that IS an option, right ?)

Correction ... She Did go to Whitmer in Toledo Ohio, however I believe I have found conflicting reports on what years.

Someone said she was wearing a wig while playing her younger self, but I couldn't tell. I do prefer the younger hairstyle she used, in comparison to her current older hairstyle.

Maybe it's just the locals you have? I'm on EA 1000.2 with an H3 and PTAT and autohop enabled and it works fine for me. The only problem I had was during Season 1 when the NFL games ran long and would cut into the show, and then the stupid post-game show would further push back the episode's starting time too.
