Every now and then I wish that they still made programs like “Star Trek the Next Generation”. Well, it turns out that they do. Or at least there is one. It’s called “The Orville” and I reckon that it is worth seeking out. I got the entire series one on Apple iTunes for a knock down price and I rate it as good value. The scenario and the hokey nature of the plots are straight from the Captain Jean Luke Picard stable, but they’ve been given a nice contemporary edge with some smart dialog and neat bits of whimsy. And the characters are all essentially nice people who you end up caring about.
If you like your Sci-Fi to include machines that can make a nice cup of tea, and where things are done with good intentions, then you should seek it out.
