Am I the only one who remembers that the first season of Next Generation was about as exciting as watching grass grow? Orville is already a hell of a lot better than that. It takes time for shows like this to find their footing. I'll see it through.
It seems to me that you are looking at "The Orville" as a parody. It's not. And that's probably why you don't find it to be funny. "The Orville" is a nice, relaxing laid-back series, and I find it hilarious. I laugh out loud the entire show. "The Orville" is better than Star Trek Discovery IMO. I guess different people have different senses of humor, though.
Lets get beyond the humor: "The Orville" is more Star Trek than "Star Trek Discovery". The creative political issues it takes on (not the uncreative tired old issues in the mainstream), the positive attitude and energy of the entire show, that's what Star Trek is. Every episode is about the daily life of the characters. I mean seriously, how do you get more Star Trek than "The Orville"? I think you're going to find "The Orville" grow on you.
