That's rough. I too figured this would be a sitcom, not an hour long.

I keep seeing commercials for this and it just makes me want to watch it less than I already do.

Yeah, I saw the original trailer and knew I wasn't interested even though Galaxy Quest is one of my favorite movies of all time. My impression was that it looked like MacFarlane’s usual fare (which I was never too huge a fan of) lazily dressed up in a Star Trek skin... but since Sepinwall's review it suggests I was wrong... but not any more worth watching.

Watched the pilot last night. I was actually surprised at how good this show is. I was expecting the typical fart joke humor of Seth McFarlane, like a Ted version of Star Trek. What I watched was a show that wanted to capture the essence of sci fi with a more comedic take. Yes, you have some Seth humor but its not to the extreme like Family Guy or Ted. From interviews of Seth talking about the show, he has said he plans on tackling social commentary of today's world in a sci-fi way, which was partly what Star Trek did. I look forward to this show continued growth. We'll see if we get that in the coming episodes. I would recommend this show to someone who likes their Star Trek with more humor.

It's weird to me every time I see "drama" being used to describe this show. But to be fair, I haven't watched it (and won't)
