Makes a better Star Trek show than a Star Trek show
tells myself to shut the hell up everyday of my entire life
That request's almost as wonky as time with that stripper that held me for ransom in Djibouti.
"Why on earth would I hire anyone other than myself to play the lead role?"
hey lois remember that time family guy was good?
it was never good peter, you are thinking of the simpsons
Hey Sup Forums remember that one time
This thread is worse than a guy from Virginia trying to feel up his girlfriend in the front seat of his gremlin at a drive-in theatre watching "the last starfighter"
Neheheh, hey Lois
look at my prius!
spends decades writing comedies so you can finally gain enough prestige to create your own star trek fanfic and star as the main character
Wow, this is just like that time [insert actor who hasn't been relevant in a while] did [insert action they wouldn't do] with [insert other extraneous detail.]

Weed atheism weed weed god isn't real weed weed Star Trek.
Who wants to hear me sing a trio with myself? No, no. I've got it. Major musical number in which I sing EVERY PART
God isn't real, you know. Know how I know that, I am smart thats way. Religion is for idiots.
I HAVE ONLY ABOUT 100 WORDS IN MY VOCABULARY.
Did I tell you the 80s gives me a nostalgia boner?
Rips off Simpsons
Add edgy jokes to make it original
Rips off Star Trek
Calls it tribute to deflect criticism
Is MacFarlane one of the smuggest human beings in existence right now?
Million Ways to Die in the West was so pathetic. The guy fucking loves himself
He's definitely one of the luckiest he survived 9/11 because of a fucking hangovers and slightly poor scheduling
friggin sweet thread lois
Million Ways to Die in the West was so pathetic
You didn't enjoy 2 hours of Seth spouting old west trivia and acting smarter than people who were 150 years ago?
i enjoyed charlize theron tho
REMEMBER THE TIME
quips while holding up my hand in a "consider the following" kind of position
"hey i survived 9-11 becuase i was hungover haha hoo buddy what a story. nine eleven."
Farts and sniffs it
Scene most likely in: The clam , couch
Peter has flashback
Peter wants to do something stupid
Brian , Stewie 2nd plot
Peter's dumb idea has a consequence which puts him in a new situation
Somewhere put a dumb song in the episode
Episode ends with moral lesson or some other shit
This guy is the poster child for everything dislikable about Generation Xers.
The guy has a good singing voice and he really really loves classic musicals, but other than that...
god isn't real
remember this movie from the 80s?
I'm sexually attracted to animals
Donald Trump is bad.
Wait is this for real?
His singing has no heart, he always sounds so soulless and "put together". He's trying, not doing.
You think these people are burying their heads in the sand? This is nothing.
This reminds me of the time I joked about Harvey Weinstein harassing women when I hosted the Oscars in 2013, and everyone laughed because they knew it was true, but no one said or did anything because they couldn't be bothered.
*initiate flashback sequence*
he said Seth MacFarlane not every person on the planet
*sings what no passion *
*looks kinda weird in the face*
the mogul would ever be a good guy in any situation ever
I can't fuck my sister in 10 seconds!
I like the Orville
Enjoyed the gags about the smiling on pictures and the criticism about the ring that kids played back them, also the back to the future cameo.
Just to resume, it was ok, probably would been better if he aimed the movie for a more family friendly audience, removing all Sarah Silverman parts, and actually putting more ways to die in the old west.
Yes, not the first time a person survived for being late to a place or just cancelling at the last minute.
HALF OF THEM IS "ME"
I only know Mark Wahlberg missing 9/11 since he said something like if I was on the plane I'd have kick the terries asses or something like that. lol
Sings smoothly then makes a few very mediocre or bad comedy based movies/tv episodes followed up by a really good tv episode /movie followed up yet again by mediocrity.
*misses my plane*
What's this about star trek? Does he have a new show?
I LOVE THE RAT PACK AND MOVIE MUSICALS
Seth looks disgusted
Emma looks like she's about to cry
It's called the Orville, its pretty okay.
*Pushes the national academy of science and Fox to do the remake of Cosmos with all his might*
Is there any truth to that?
I saw a promo for it, honestly it looked like your run of the mill office comedy but this time your misfit co-workers are aliens and you work in a spaceship.
He wants to be Mel Brooks.
There's not a lot of comedy in it if you can believe it also it tackles like religion, gender identity, racism, etc like a ST show.
The Orville. Its pretty much Star Trek Next Generation but with sprinklings of his trademark "everyday humor". honestly if they dialed the humor back a bit it would be flat out great. the humor just kind of distracts from the genuinely good Star Trek stuff happening in the episode. Like the trial/debate over switch the gender of an alien baby because the species is mono-gendered and females are super rare and considered a birth defect, or deciding whether or not to kill the entire crew of ship, including children whose race are violent war obsessed religious fanatics who are planning on killing an entire planetary colony of over 100,000 people.
If they dropped like 80% of the humor the show would be amazing.
The leg falling through the ceiling was great. You're a soulless git.
spontaneous musical number
It pretty much is, though it's more of a dramady than a... comedra? Whatever, the drama/comedy ratio is about 80/20. The comedy can really suck, though. The fifth episode had a great prank battle for the education of the resident "android learning about organics,".
However the first half of the sixth episode had a character actively trying to blow an undercover mission, complete with extended and excruciating jokes about the aliens god, Avis. Yes, the modern car rental company in a show set in the 25th century. It could have worked, but not in an alien church surrounded by people who would kill them and literally put their heads on a platter while the other guy with him is mind yelling "shut the FUCK up, idiot" along with me.
The second half was pretty good and dramatic.
Remeber that time when I treid to be Seth MacFarlane for 10 seconds?
that was funny. some of the humor works and is good. like them getting Gortus to eat a napkin, a cactus and a class cup because his species can eat anything. that's good humor and fits the show. putting mr potato head parts on the robots head was funny
the 5 minute "awkward talking like normal people in an abnormal situation" isn't. the random gibberish when trying to come up with Krill names only to end up using the names Chris and Devin wasn't funny.
its mostly that the juxtaposition of serious real moments followed by weird out of place humor doesn't help the show. there are to many "wouldn't it be funny if in Star Trek this thing happened" moments. like talking to the enemy ship only to be told the transmission hadn't been sent and Seth to go "oh, is it...is it open now? do it now? ok good". its just lame. some of the humor works and they are great moments of levity but to much ruins whatever sense of seriousness they are actually trying to go for.
I want family guy to end
I don't because if it ends the writers will probably get moved onto American Dad and they will fucking ruin that show. seriously Alex Borstein is fucking garbage and everything bad about Family Guy I think its first cancellation is her fault.
Yes, the guy actually likes the original that much
The 80s, amirite? But enough about that, let's talk about God...is what I would say if I BELIEVED in him, haha. Ahhh this reminds me of the time I once smoked pot with Frank Sinatara. *rips massive fart*
makes my character fuck my sister's character again
I'm so smart
Man, this reminds me of that time I missed my flight
*sing some old Broadway tune from the fucking 40's*
*Star Wars Joke*
Oh hey, Fox just offered me a tv sitcom deal
So Donald Trump, huh?
You can tell he needs a bit of weed eh?
talks shit about everyone else's work while not putting out anything decent in at least a decade.
It's hard not to love myself when he's one of the most handsome, successful, multitalanted, and funniest men in the last century.
Hey, remember that time I didn't die in 9/11?
I'd let Lt. Kitan open my jar of pickles.
WHEN WE FELL IN LOVE
My main issue is that the humour that is there seems kind of toothless and bland. Going into the show, I was expecting it to be far more overtly comical than it is. I was fully anticipating an out-and-out Star Trek parody where the humour took the centre stage but was surprised to find that much of the show's characters and topics were being played entirely straight. The problem is that the show can't seem to decide if it wants to be a comedy or a genuine foray into the high-concept sci-fi genre. The result is that you get a wishy-washy show which fails to adequately deliver on what it obviously could. Honestly, I think it could easily continue along its current path of mostly being played serious but with occasional Firefly-esque comedy, but they'll have to bump up the quality of the joke writing if they want them to be anything other than a dull distraction from what's actually happening.
HEY WOULDN'T IT BE FUNNY IF THIS FEMALE CHARACTER WAS RAPED
Hey, don't you think my sister is kinda hot?
I hit that. I hit that so good. You're jealous, I can tell.
He only voices it anyway so it wouldn't affect his other stuff beyond Orville getting a smaller budget.
HEHEHE, Hey Lois, remember that time OP was being a fag and made that retarded thread?
Guys when I joked about Harvey Weinstein, you gotta understand that I was really focused on what a difficult topic and not just relying on a cheap shock gag and you should have ignored how smug I was
makes decent show
lets his writers take over as he makes another decent show
previous show turns to shit without him and resorts to excessive edgyness
Am more successful than you will ever be
I think you're over-estimating your sexual stamina.
Both look like they are just trying to keep a straight face and not laugh.
It's probably because Seth wanted to make a straight up Trek show but the network wouldn't let him, probably because he's "Seth MacFarlane, Funny Man™". Like maybe it's just me but a lot of the jokes feel like they were mandated by the network and not because writers wanted to lighten up the scene.
Do you think Seth had to suck some cock to get his show back? If it happened to Terry Crews it can happen to Seth.
it's an Orville vs. Discovery thread
9/11 almost cost us this collaborative treasure.
Euguguhguh go away fat man
He is the opposite of subtle.
I would fuck his sister
Daily reminder that comics are products of free markets capitalism and must be burned to establish our revolutionary Marxist state. We must wage an ideological war to root out all non Marxist ideas (ex Captain America, Batman/Bruce Wayne) and replace them with Marxist Versions.
Also, get a life you fags. Were you not kids for long enough.?
ITT: "Things I don't like about Family Guy"
*Big band music*
Hey remember that one time God wasn't real?
smoke weed fuck drumpfy
Promos do it a disservice. Its very much TNG with regular people.
Just mad its doing better than Discovery
I missed out on being the solitary silver lining for 9/11
I decided that The Orville is pretty much exactly what I envisioned watching the Galaxy Quest TV show is like.
The shitting scene in the end was completely unnecessary and took out any positive feeling that the audience might've had till then
Fuck me that is an incredible movie.
Frog confirmed to have been harvested
I stopped watching Ways to die in the west 10 minutes in because the humour was so painfully self aware and unfunny. And the Orville has a lot of that in it too. I only watched half the latest episode and their painfully unfunny infiltration really grated badly so I stopped watching it
Tbqh I still catch family guy from time to time.
Both shows are ripoffs and are only cashing in on nostalgia from Star Trek
What part of discovery is a ripoff?
R A P E J O K E S
I love Star Trek while espousing none of its values of understanding and tolerance.
I mock Disney for being a racist while putting more racist jokes in my work than any other major network comedy.
*uses a spade to dig dirt out of fingernails
I'm bad at metaphores
son wants to fuck mom
This was the one joke on Orville that actually made me laugh, he needs to stop trying to go for luaghs and instead go for smiles, if the humor were just the casual interactions between the crew the show would be so much better.
Hi, I'm Seth MacFarlane
That reminds me of the time my wife's tampon fell out at the supermarket.
Seth makes star trek show
Star Trek makes a star trek show
There's a reason it's abbreviation is STD.
I can't get hard fast enough, asshole, look it up, it's a real problem.
New Star Trek show. Star Trek Discovery.
Cutaway joke to pre-cancellation Family Guy
literally a fucking vanity project
I'll make a new trek since i loved the old one!
i'll get old trek talent to work on it too! I'm such a fan!
cool seth, whos the star?
I wrote a new movie! it's called "It doesn't matter"
okay seth, tell me what happens.
So the opening scene is a line of many famous and attractive hollywood starlets all in elegent beautiful dresses!
uh huh, loving it, go on!
okay, now, it's in this castle throne room, and i am dressed as a prince!
sure, sure, okay...
And all these famouse starlettes are here to kiss me!
Charle theron, Amanda Seyfried, Kate Upton, Emma Watson...
Zoe Saldana, Gal Gadot, Christina Hendricks...
Anne Hathaway, Mila kunis, scarlet johansen, all there to kiss me!
g-great seth...so whats the punchline then?
You! Because you're going to produce it! AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!
I might check it out.
I'm gonna make a star trek rip off full of jokes and comedy, and promote it as such, but the finish product will be a slow burn that tries to take itself way to seriously and evidently turn out to be exactly what it is, a cheap imitation, with some crappy chuckles every once in awhile that generate maybe one genuine laugh per episode.
*Sniffs my own farts*
the modern car rental company in a show set in the 25th century
The show makes a lot of cultural references to the last twenty years.
TV show "friends" is mentioned during
the interrogation scene
They're watching an episode of Seinfeld.
It's kind of annoying.
*gets another cartoon to shit talk Republicans*
Not worth it. It's only related to the other series cause of it's name.
Oh so you never saw it huh? Most episodes are about drama.
*opens a 40
Aw fuck wrong thread
*masturbates to a woman on the toilet*
What's with these jokes about fucking his sister?
That was my original reaction too, but Orville is actually pretty good.
He's very close with his sister and they're often singing duets together, sometimes romantic ones. She also voices Hayley which makes that episode with stans clone fucking hayley even more awkward.
This reminds me that time I misclicked and ended up on /pol/.
Where the hell am I?
You're on /pol/
What do you do here?
Argue about politics and accuse everyone of being jews or niggers
If you have a board for politics why do you keep posting about them on other boards?
SHUT UP NIGGER JEW
EH LOUIS THIS JUST LIKE THE TIME JACKIE CHAN ORDERED A CRISPY BEEF TACO
get paid to make new cartoon
copy paste charcters and plot from previous cartoon
claim animation prizes
This new outline for a show is great, but is there any way to put in a middle aged Irish American alcoholic? I’m sure you realize that I, as a middle aged Irish American alcoholic was born to play this role!
Mel Brooks had a lead role?
