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 β€œcomics” although Glass City, The Crow, and Fight Club have entered into my library):

Resident Alien.

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 the alien.

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.

It was β€œEverly” that I was watching SyFy over and remembered this show had just come out.

Wednesday night.

Good stuff!

I've recorded them, but haven't watched yet. I've only seen the commercials for it and thought it might be a twist on the old t.v. show "Northern Exposure"..

Looking forward to this.πŸ€—

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.

Love you brother! Thanks for keeping us honest and me level! Hope Little Burgh is well! This has been the wildest 5 years so far!

No more super saturation on emotions. We all ride a nice wave!

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 recently Venom.

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.

SyFy (grrrrr, hate the new name.

Forgot to mention earlier but back in 94 I had a subscription to the official channel's magazine and have them stashed away somewhere.

If memory serves me correct... 1st issue had Jack Nicholson as the Wolf and the second one had William Shatner and his Tek Wars. I think in total I have 2 years worth.

And yes... I was not pleased when they did their logo/name rebranding.

This sounds pretty good, I always feel a little gutted though nowadays when I go to watch something and there are weekly eps, Netflix has spoiled me into block watching!

This is definitely going on the ''to watch'' list though.

OK.. I'm liking this series more and more..

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.

Thanks for the tip. I dig Alan Tudyk as he was great in Firefly and Dollhouse so I'll check it out.

This show is actually very interesting and a bit off beat.

Which is OK by me!

It reminds me of another show that is based on a small town, with a doctor, strange residents, and an obvious choice that will have to happen: Northern Exposure!

Lots of similarities. But a bit more modern.

And I don’t care!

Seriously, bowling ball in the crotch will always make me laugh!!

Picked it and Watched it by accident and with low expectations, next thing i know i binged watch all the episodes and wanting more.

This clearly means only one thing. Syfy will cancel it.

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.
