This show is so good, I’m sad I can’t binge watch all of the episodes right away. The pilot episode is available free on Syfy.
What’s it about?
An alien on a mission whose UFO gets struck by lighting and crashes near a small town in Colorado has to recover his technology from the snow before it melts. Resident Alien is three genres in one. It’s a drama, sci-fi, and comedy and is great as all three. The story sucked me in right away and I was LOL a lot. Since he’s stuck on Earth he must take human form and try to fit in. He’s smarter and stronger than any human so he’s confident he’ll have no problems. He watches Law and Order and surfs the net to learn English before he goes into town.
Who are the actors?
Sara Tomko and Alan Tudyk have been on TV and in Hollywood movies before, but I suspect this show will really make them into big stars like The Mandalorian did for Pedro Pascal. OK maybe not that big, but this show will definitely boost their acting careers because they help make the show believable.
The alien crashes in the very beginning of the story and I only mentioned the first few minutes, so that’s all I’ll say other than it’s definitely worth watching. Smallville is still my favorite alien gets stuck on Earth story. How many are there? I remember E.T., Transformers, He-Man, Mork and Mindy, and Alf. Which did I forget?
