Re: DSC S1: The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry

Worst episode so far in my opinion, mostly do to very dumb decisions by supposedly competent officers.

I also have to voice my problems with the klingons. I don't mind the new make up, its bit too heavy on face which limits the facial expressions, but that ok, not all species need to show their emotions on their faces. What I do have problem with though is how every line they deliver is very monotone and seems to lack any emotion. Without subtitles you could not tell if a klingon character is happy, angry, constipated or sad.

Re: ORV S1: Krill

Decent episode. Really annoyed me how badly they were trying to blend in to the Krill crew. They were even making jokes that could get them found out. Also the way they handled the situation with lights was pretty bad. Why would krills install internal lights that can be tuned to spectrum's that can kill them? Does Orville's lamps have easy to access setting for gamma radiation?

Otherwise OK episode, I'd give it 2 1/2 stars.

Re: ORV S1: About a Girl

I really disliked this episode, not because of the message it was trying to send, but the setting it used sending it. Most of my points are already mentioned by others here, but I feel like I need to do little venting myself.

Firstly the whole female Moclan thing. We have been shown that 2 "males" of their species can procreate so where does that leave the "female"? This by itself already removes any kind of female - male meaning from the start as they are clearly not different sexes, but more like different racial variants of the same species.

Secondly the whole premise of them showing how females can be as strong and intelligent as males by using different species is by itself a ridiculous notion. In humans the difference is very small and individual differences are often bigger, but in nature we have for example in arachnids females that are 100x larger than their male counter parts. On mammals, spotted hyena females are larger and stronger than males and do in fact completely dominate them, on the other hand in baboons the males is on average twice the size of female. Sexual dimorphism is very different in different species so everyone just assuming that Moclans are exactly like humans even though they had no records of any "female" of adult age when the whole trial started.

Again, I'm not saying that the message here was bad, but the setting just did not fit for it.
