    That is the best I can do at home I’m afraid. Consider it the age where tv and movie companies have basically tricked the public into thinking we don’t need home recording.

    Or, as is my assumption, Calypso has no bearing on anything until Discovery is over. So it can get chucked on the last season set.

    I’d wait to confirm what’s on the discs. These early lists of features are notoriously inaccurate, as are listings on Amazon.

    I just ordered 2 CD sets from them, both listed as having 1 disc each. When they came I saw that one had 3 discs and the other had 6!

    Same. Will never buy "The Orville" as long as it releases to DVD only. Strange to me, since "Gotham" was released on Blu-ray throughout it's run.

    I guess I have “collectivitus”. I recorded the Orville on DVD-RW with my recordable DVD machine, and edited out the commercials. Our public library bought a copy of season 1 and let’s just say “a friend” could have made me a copy of it. I vowed to never buy it on DVD only, and I still bought it. What’s more, I have season 2 on pre-order. <_<

    I also quit recording things on DVD years ago. If I have to see it on DVD, I just won't bother seeing it.

    Having lived through the “Galavant” experience, I am always afraid that I will not be able to buy new seasons of my favourite shows. Therefore I record the two Walking Dead’s, Krypton, Discovery and The Orville on to DVD-RW and keep these until the season sets are out on Blu ray if possible.

    I still have 1000s of DVDs, and although I replace them with Blu rays, and buy all new ones I can on Blu, I find the quality of DVDs quite acceptable. My largest TV is 65”, and a lot of my viewing is done on a 45” TV, so I am not blowing them up to IMAX!

    Got the Blu-ray on Amazon Prime Day and have been slowly watching it with my wife at dinner rotating with a bunch of other series we watch. We've seen the first disc so far (4 episodes). It has been entertaining so far. After the second episode, my wife said, "well that's the end of that series." The next day we watched the third episode, which really seemed like the real pilot of the series. While watching the 4th episode my wife wondered whether we would be getting a third pilot next.

    Glad to see the news that S2 will be out in November. Maybe there will be a nice Black Friday sale on it.

    Just reread a lot of the pre-release comments and all of the comments through the first 4 episodes I've seen (through page 57, #1140).

    It is interesting to read some of the old comments now knowing what has happened. There was at least one person dreading the casting of one actress and she ended up getting quickly killed on the show.

    I'm looking forward to continuing to read what folk here said with each episode.

    The early days of this thread are very similar to the early BSG thread ("they changes the frakking helmets!"). I'm glad we've mostly silenced the naysayers.

    The new Short Treks episode is out, too. For my fellow Canadians, it's on Crave (yuck...). Hopefully it will air in 5.1 soon on SciFi.

    A chance to tell new stories in a place we’ve never been before. An easy sell for me!

    I just watched it. Twice. At first I was wondering who that guy is that is with Bernham, and I realized it’s the guy from the Calypso Short Trek. So this ties in with that. Looks like there’s quite a few clues there for what is going on in the future. I miss Pike and Spock. I’ll save that Short Trek for later.

    I paid $10 to watch the Short Trek and it was worth every penny. Please universe, let this be a backdoor pilot that gets picked up because I will never miss an episode of that.

    Nope, not the same guy. The actor in Calypso is Aldis Hodge. The actor in Discovery Season 3 is David Ajala.

    Sam, I have not rewatched Calypso, so I didn’t know the actors. Thanks for the clarity. But it seemed like the same character. When he said the insignia on Burnham’s shirt is from a ghost, or words to that effect, that was what made me think it’s the same person.

    Interesting theory, Nelson. That could well be.
