SyFy (grrrrr, hate the new name. As it should be nerdy so why the H3ll am I watching a Selma Hayek movie with her being a female Bruce Lee/Bruce
Willis??), anywho,!got their act together and produced a TV show that looks like it was based on a graphic novel (I am a grown man and read very few
“comics” although Glass City, The Crow, and Fight Club have entered into my library):
There are three different stories going on. One is a murder/mystery; the other is a a story of a broken family and how their lives interact, and then
Is he a good guy or bad guy?!??!!
So the story starts with a crashed spaceship in Colorado. The alien kills a human and assumes his form. Then goes about his mission and looks for his
weapon, the body that he threw into the lake, and tries not to draw attention to his doings.
His human cover is effective against almost everyone but there is one person who sees him as he is.
Set the plot up! Cook some popcorn and tune the n on Wednesday nights to get a good poke at all of our human conditions.
I laughed at the first two episodes! Love Alan Tudyk! And it is twisted enough to keep my attention.

I like Tudyk as well, ever since Dodgeball. In this he is quirky and fits the main role well. The show could drop into total schmaltz but as yet has
not, much to his abilities of carrying that character. I hope it keeps up as it wears on into the season.
We enjoyed the first episode and it looks up our kiddo's alley. The only trouble would be the constant language references he gets to look up on his
phone like d-bag and the like. Sure some of them he's been introduced to at school, but you never know when you'll end up stepping on the landmine
with the clueless, "Whaaaa?"
But if it doesn't get a whole lot more spicy than that, we can probably all watch.

I got a chance to watch the extended trailer the other day and was sucked in.
So last night watched the first episode and loved the little twist and turns that he/she/it has to go through to act human. Love the whole concept and
is no "cookie cutter" creation. Rather unique concept on a familiar theme as I look back at such classic's as "My Favorite Martian" (and others), most
I am going to guess that by the time he finds the earth-killer device, he will have regrets and not go through it. Which of course will make him a bad
guy to his own race. And will they send out a rescue mission (and another bomb)?
Yep... this could be a really good series.

They Got Linda Hamilton (Terminator, others), Terry O'Quinn (Lost, others) and how about a real life UFO Investigator that has his own Meme Giorgio
Tsoukalos (Ancient Aliens... yeau the "I'm not saying it's Aliens, BUT ALIENS).
Just to see him alone is well worth the charge of admission, but yeau, I'm getting more impressed.
Aw man, I'm intrigued, but if this is only on a cable network, I'm screwed unless using "alternative means" -- we cut the cable cord last year, just
have Prime Video til we peruse the available listings enough and hop back to Netflix, or try something else.
Don't give those asses any ideas, they might just run with them. Still pissed at what they did with Caprica.
The scene where the Sheriff pulls over the two kids on bicycles in tonight's episode was hilarious. "Keep your hands on the handlebars where I can see
them" and "Get that reflector fixed", plus a few other choice lines, just made it too funny. Totally dug the scenes where the alien is trying to
figure out how to use his body. Tudyk's fantastic, as always.
