We just need to hope that the jokes get better.
Or better still, leave out the attempts at so-called humour and get down to making a quality sci.fi series with great scripts and well conceived plots.
There will only ever be ONE Firefly. Given the discussion thus far, The Orville doesn't come in a distant last, much less a far-off second.
Me, I'm waiting for the sci.fi, The 100, to start back, not to mention Blindspot and Quantico.
