The Orville’s Low Rotten Tomatoes Score Proves RT is Irrelevant

The Orville’s 27% Rotten Tomatoes Critics Score exposes the ‘Access Media’ for what they are. Why is there so much love for Doctor Who and Star Trek Discovery, but none for The Orville?

This is almost a perfect inversion of the Doctor Who Critic/Audience score.


They can’t all have that bad of taste, can they?


A recent example is with the Doctor Who New Year’s Day Special with a critics score of 100% and an audience score of 20%. Are the critics in fear? They should be, but not from their corporate overlords. Let’s go back and read some of their reviews and then some new ones from the fans.
