The Orville: S01 E03 About A Girl

by - November 02, 2017

I'm really enjoying The Orville. I guess that I could best describe it as a homage to Star Trek The Next Generation and, to a lesser extent, scifi of the 80's and 90's. Some people will see it as a satire but I see it as a compliment to a great era of scifi storytelling.

In this episode we tackle ethnocentrism, sexism, and a lot of other *isms. Bortus and Klyden, a single sex species, give birth (hatch) a female. They decide to have the child's sex changed to the standard male of the Moclans. Bortus changes his mind after watching "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" which results in a legal battle.

While it didn't end the way I thought it would, I have to admit that I was glued to the screen.
