…The Orville. Yes, seriously. For the first 3 episodes, I wished they would “pick a side”…either be a comedy or be a serious show, but each episode turned out to be neither funny enough nor serious enough. But with “If the Stars Should Appear” (episode 4), it seems to have finally hit it’s stride…being both funny *and* serious enough to be a pretty good episode of Star Trek.
And kudos to composer Bruce Broughton, for doing a masterful job of creating a soundtrack that seems greatly…ahem…”inspired” by the first few Star Trek movies (the original ones, not the recent reboots). I’ve been having a lot of fun trying to identify where some of the musical passages came from.
