Will and Tyson are back for another edition of TVEnthusiast’s weekly podcast, The Weekly Set. This week, for our 127th podcast, we explore the current Fall TV season by talking about 2 shows currently under heavy comparison by fans and critics alike. Star Trek: Discovery is the new TV show in the beloved Star Trek franchise, while The Orville is a new, more comedic, take on the tropes and aesthetics of several older shows from the franchise. There was a lot of concern going into Star Trek: Discovery, and as such, The Orville was held up as a potential replacement for actual Star Trek franchise shows. Both series have now debuted, so where does it strand? Does The Orville out Star Trek an actual Star Trek show?
Next week, we will continue our discussion of the Fall 2017 television season.
The Weekly Set is TVEnthusiast’s weekly podcast. Every week, barring few exceptions, Will and Tyson gather to talk about what they have been watching, TV relevant news, and whatever else strikes their fancy.
