The creature's "hey Lazlo, guess what" repetition is spot on with how my kids act, and I love how cheesy and bad the CG is on their weird body and head.
I agree with you all around. This arc has been my favorite part of the season so far.I'll differ and say I like the creature that crawled out of the chest cavity of dead Colin Robinson quite a bit, and Lazlo's absolutely horrendous parenting is a treat.

I'm gonna go in the opposite direction. I thought that scene was hilarious. The actors are clearly having a ton of fun. It's both humorous, and I like that the scene plays everything very seriously. The juxtaposition of some alien ritual being objectively ridiculous on top of the show portraying that same scenario as very serious is probably Orville humor at its best. There were several similar moments in this season (series?) finale. Like the point where a certain lost item reappears and Lamar sulks off in dismay about how messed up/strange their line of work is. Actually got a chuckle out of me versus bad puns about the rigidity of trees.I feel bad for the guy who plays Klyden on The Orville.
Yeah, that wiki article is pretty in depth. If you'd prefer a more audio/visual primer though, the old film "The Right Stuff" is a really good film that's on the long side, but it's a really good primer for showing the whole space race, starting from Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier, up through the beginning Apollo missions. (There's also a recent TV show adaptation that I can't vouch for/haven't seen.) Apollo 13 is also a classic that'll prime you on a lot of the NASA culture and lingo as well behind the space program, and definitely serves as inspiration for some of the crisis-in-space aspects of For All Mankind.One more question, regarding For All Mankind: What topics should I know about, before going into the show? I know, I don't need to know about much, but as a take on alternative History, I would really like to know the stuff that actually happened, at least in broad strokes. It sounds like it is US focused? My general knowledge about History post WW II is rather lacking, so a simple list of topics would be pretty nice.
Best Buy is still offering 3 months of Apple TV+ for free even to people who have used the trial before, I got this a bit ago after using a trial through Apple a very long time ago and it worked just fine.If anyone needs like $5 thrown their way to sub to Apple TV+ for a month to watch it, I'll venmo you the money.
