An original and very funny show
I will confess to being a life-long sci-fi fan so when I saw the ads for the premier of this show, I was intrigued. It hasn't disappointed and is one of the most original new comedies of the year. Maybe the most original given retread sitcoms like the stuff CBS has rolled out with Kevin James and Matt LeBlanc.
The premise is very different than anything else on television right now. It holds up thanks to a very good cast, mostly little known actors, and very good writing. It also turns upside down the longstanding portrayals of aliens as all-knowing, advanced beings whose ways are mysterious to Earthlings. Instead, the aliens are petty, incompetent in a lot of technical applications, and have fits of temper. That element of the show is one of the funniest to me and is very well done. The Earthlings are a diverse group with a lot of excellent interactions within the support group of "experiencers."
Even people who aren't sci-fi fans should give this a try. If you haven't watched it from the start, you need to go back to the pilot and catch up.
Here's hoping it has a long run.
