I thought this show would mostly suck but it's mostly good. It's like TNG mixed with a semi dramatic sitcom. It's got some heart already.

And its moving to Thursday this week instead of Sunday which is good too, although I've enjoyed streaming it.

I was excited about the show and have enjoyed the sci-fi aspect of the story lines. Once again I fail to find Seth's humor funny. He makes me slightly laugh occasionally.

Considering how bad the critics panned it, I've been amazed at how much better it has been than I was led to believe.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of Seth's work generally, but this is pretty good stuff as a science fiction show. It beats the heck out of some of the bore-fests that have been offered up over the last few years in the genre. There's a bit of Seth's blue humor (and there's a pun there from the first episode) but for the most part, it's just fun. Casting is pretty good and the aliens so far have been better than I expected, they aren't quite cardboard cutouts or just humans in funny suits.

I'll keep watching.

I just started watching it.  First episode: not horrible.  The varying tone is kind of odd.  There are some very funny moments, but not the Family Guy affair.  I'm not sure what to make of it though.  It is a Star Trek spoof?  An original spin on the old formula?

I'm curious to see how it will really make it's own way.

The Simpsons and a Star Trek rip-off in one lifetime?  Ted part 3???

Well, just finished episode 3....  OK, I'm in.  I really like this show.  It's looking at more serious issues with the world through a more accurate prism.  The new Star Trek Discovery has a different job, more giving people a cool star trek story.  This show, they can tell something more currently appropriate through the goofy lens of Seth McFarland.

Like the latest episode about a male only culture that forces gender change surgeries on the rarely born female aliens.  Man, what a heavy issue (when cultures clash), that still made me laugh and also hit me in the guts.  I was REALLY impressed with this episode!
