The Orville: “About a Girl”

Both the most serious of the three Orville adventures and the most humorous, in “About a Girl,” the one-liners and comedy work faster and better than they have in the past and even the few dick jokes that are whipped out pass by organically without much pause. I found this to be a rather compelling hour of television, taking on a touchy subject with maturity (and a little immaturity), and leading the audience to think and debate.
