I wasn't involved, but I would love to be.  I think it's a good show.  And yeah, if I were writing a Trek-like show, this would be it.

People keep talking about Family Guy, they wondered if it was gonna be like Family Guy in Space, they didn't know if they'd like it because they don't like Family Guy, they were disappointed that it wasn't like Family Guy, they were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't like Family Guy...  At least half of what I've read regarding the show brings up Family Guy in one way or another.  Fuck Family Guy!  I've never watched Family Guy because what little I've seen looks stupid.  I watch The Orville because it's like Star Trek TNG only with real people.

It's been renewed for a second season, but there's still one episode from Season 1 that they haven't aired yet, so we're gonna get that episode kicking off Season 2, then the rest.  I hate it when they do that, because there's usually an obvious shift in tone and often casting changes between the first and second season of a show.  So now that the show has found its audience and found its feet, they screw it over by cutting the first season short, setting up a drop in audience of about 50%, and then will cancel it because of low ratings.

Got mine this morning.  It was a nice surprise, I guess, but it looks a little weird with a StarCraft ship flying around picking up your gold in Sanctuary.  But it's another pet, so yay!

I always have both feet with me, but I only use one to drive.  But I make up for that by using my hands, too.

It's wasn't that bad.  It really was fun.  This was before she had the whole set and was still playing at T1, so it definitely could have been more hairy.

I've run into a couple Yellow Dudes at once, multiple Champion packs, and various combinations totalling three, but I don't think I've ever stumbled into four Yellow Dudes at once before.  Well, "stumbled" isn't quite the word, as I was Vortexed or Wormholed (I still don't know the difference) into the middle of them.  Very exciting.

But in the end, I was triumphant!  Even leveled somewhere in there.

My Witch Doctor found the Jade chest armor, then gambled the pants, so she finished the set before getting Haedrig's third Gift.  That was cool.  Also got a RoRG from doing Act I Bounties, so she's got some options.

Mrs. Orbert and I were out of town over the weekend, but got back Sunday, and by Sunday evening it was time for some D3 Multi.

Something we've never done before was start Seasonal characters at the same time and play them MP.  After reviewing the Season 13 news stuff, most importantly what Sets were being given out this time, she decided on Crusader, and I picked a Witch Doctor.  This was another change-up for us, since she typically prefers ranged characters.  Most recently, she's played a DH and a Wizard, so I joined her with my Barb and played the tank for her.

I was used to being the tank and running forward into the fray and attacking stuff, so I had to keep reminding myself to let her Crusader tank and I provide support via Haunt and Grasp of the Dead and stuff.  She kept dying, which was annoying, and eventually I figured out that it's not the characters/roles; it's that she's just not as good at D3 as I am.  No surprise, since she's only been at it a few months.  Her reflexes aren't as good, her ability to manage multiple skills and all that is just lower.  So fine, we resumed our "regular" roles of me charging forward and attacking things, and she learned how to play a Crusader.

One thing I found rather interesting was that we started off leveling at exactly the same time (makes sense as all XP was evenly split), but when she died and I kept killing, I'd of course get ahead of her.  I never got more than 1 level higher than her, though, and after resurrecting, she'd be back and soon we were in sync again.  The game kept distributing XP such that she would catch up with me within a level or so.

Playing at Torment I, we got to Level 26 in a few hours, and I was ready to crash.  Had to work Monday morning.  She played solo a while, which is fine.  I told her to play around with the skills, figure out which ones she likes best and all that.  She likes the horses.  What is it with women and horses?  I think all women like horses.  Anyway, I played my Witch Doctor solo last night and got her to Level 70 and beyond.  I think she's got 20 Paragon points or so.  Hopefully I'll finish Chapter 2 tonight and start getting some fun gear.

Nice!  I gotta try a Monkey King build again sometime.  Last time I tried it, I couldn't figure out how it's supposed to work, especially Sweeping Wind, so I switched to something else.

Oh, sorry.  :P

My Euro Demon Huntress completed a GR 70 the other day.  Tonight she gambled her first Primal from Kadala, and it's a keeper:

I don't think I currently have an M6 DH on Euro.  Looks like that will have to change.

Man, I love the scenery in this game!  The bridges over the various rivers and streams in Act I are really nice.

The screenshots don't really do justice to the moving water and the spray from the waterfalls.

I think it's amazing.  I've seen the same pic posted in a few places, often with people commenting "I don't get it."  Maybe there's nothing to get.  I think the "normal" human brain sees some kind of implied parallax and concludes that the pictures have to be at different angles, but maybe some people have better brains than me.

I spend too much time on Facebook as it is.  But one thing I try to do is control my Friend list, because it can get out of hand.  So one of my purges years ago introduced a new rule that I have to actually know the person in real life.  I was making lots of online friends (including many from here, and various predecessors such as the SP subforum of wherever we used to be -- I don't even remember), and it felt weird seeing pictures of people's kids, them hanging out with their friends, talking about stuff, and I've never met any of the people involved.

I have nothing personally against anyone here (at least that I can think of) but Facebook for me is more personal.  I know that it's different for a lot of people.  For many, Internet friends are just as "real" as folks they grew up with or work with or anything else.  I probably interact more with "online only" friends than my buds from school or my family, who are scattered all over the country.  But rules are rules.   :P
