The Orville TV show review

New TV show time is always a wonderful time. I love TV, therefor I watch a lot of it and have exhausted most of my options for what series to watch a while ago. New TV time is where it makes my decision easy!.. The Orville is what appears to be a spoof of Star Trek made by Seth MacFarlane, with stupid jokes and a plot that never quite sticks because it is unimportant. Right? Wrong! The Orville is a fantastic homage to Star Trek with just enough “wink-wink, nudge-nudge” to be humorous and enough sincerity to be its own spectacular show…The best way I can describe The Orville is a more real Star Trek. How? I feel like what happens in The Orville would happen on the Enterprise and they just don’t show it. Jokes on the bridge, drama and relationships on the ship, boring jobs, it all makes it feel more real while keeping the drama and the stakes of the show at the forefront… The actors are also spectacular, Seth MacFarlane basically made his childhood dream come true and gave himself the role of Captain Ed Mercer  and delivers some of the best acting in his career, unsurprisingly. Countering him as his first officer is Kelly, played by Adrianne Palicki, you may know her as Tyra from Friday Night Lights. There is a rather large cast that I won’t get in to but every one of them is fleshed out with their own unique backstory and usually episodes to make you care… The Orville blew my expectations out of the water, delivering something I never thought I would see by Seth Macfarlane. I will watch this show for as many seasons as Fox will keep it.

Ted 2 movie review

ted-2-poster1-640x1013

I was a huge fan of Ted 1, it was hilarious, original, and I will watch anything with Mark Wahlberg in it! When I heard Ted 2 was coming out, I was incredibly nervous that it would be a shitty cash grab. Which lets be honest it kind of is a cash grab, but it is far from shitty! Ted 2 stars Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, and Amanda Seyfried. In this hilarious sequel Ted and his new wife Tami-Lynn want to adopt a baby. After submitting to try and adopt a baby it is found that Ted is property and not a person. Teds life is then swung into chaos and it is up to him, John, and their stoner-lawyer Samantha to save him. Now, though Ted 2 is hilarious as hell, it is completely non-linear. It’s story is good, much better than it had to be, but ninety percent of the movie is purely there so that a joke can be there. I don’t mind this, it reminds me of the way Family Guy is run, and I enjoy family guy! Amanda Seyfried is an awesome person to add into the mix! After seeing her, and her character, I wonder how I ever liked Mila Kunis in basically the same role, minus the weed. Ted 2 is good, if you don’t expect an amazing story you will be fine, because at least you will laugh your ass off.

Ted 2 trailer review

Ted 2! I only have a single question… why? I bet I know the answer too… Money! All money hungry jokes aside, it doesn’t look like a half bad movie. I am concerned about the fact that Mila Kunis didn’t sign on, but that doesn’t mean its shit, she could have been busy. Or it’s shit. I was a huge fan of Ted, it had some of the funniest dialogue I have ever heard (“He’s a bear.”), and I love the 2 stars. The fact that Mila isn’t in it is a bummer, but these two can carry it no problem. Ted 2 follows Ted and John on their quest to get Ted to be seen as a person, and not property so he and Tami-Lynn can adopt a baby, not a bad concept. My worry is that we are going to see another Anchorman 2 fiasco, where it is the same movie, just less funny. The trailer is not bad, but if I am honest, I didn’t laugh. Sure I chuckled, but no laugh. I like these guys, but I don’t want to see a shitty cash-grab comedy.
