Orvillian Ethics

What happens when social media and public opinion rule the world? How does an all-male species react to the birth of a female child? And can Seth MacFarlane leave behind the problematic elements of much of his earlier writing?
Like the Star Trek series it pays homage to, The Orville uses science fiction to hold a mirror to our own world. Matthew and Jacob explore this show, the questions it raises, and some of their concerns.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
