Seth MacFarlane Compares Family Guy & His Sci-Fi Show The Orville

The Orville wears its influences on its sleeve, as its visual style and writing borrows heavily from Star Trek. MacFarlane initially applied elements of a situational comedy to the mold created by Star Trek, joking about the unique circumstances the crew faces on an interstellar spaceship while also addressing the Star Trek tropes created over decades. However, as the show progressed, The Orville delved more into nuanced storylines with deeper discussions, similar to the way Star Trek: The Original Series or The Next Generation handled current social issues of their time. As MacFarlane rightly points out, Family Guy differs in that it is more of a straight-forward sitcom for which the writers create the best fictional scenarios to serve their jokes. Family Guy also arguably handles its commentary in a more explicit, and very irreverent, way.

As Family Guy has been a reliable source of comedy for over 20 years, MacFarlane will no doubt face comparisons of his other works to his most famous show for years to come. The Orville, however, does not warrant such a comparison, as the two shows lie within vastly different genres. Although both have elements of comedy, their premises, joke tones, and styles are largely dissimilar. As Family Guy season 21 arrives in the fall, and The Orville season 3 premieres on Hulu, audiences have the opportunity to enjoy both MacFarlane’s creations at their leisure.
