Watch Teenage James Van Der Beek in Surreal ’90s Tgif Comedy ‘Aliens in the Family’

The impending premiere of Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World” on June 27 has us feeling nostalgic for the halcyon days of ABC’s “Tgif” line-up, when shows like “Boy Meets World,” “Perfect Strangers” and “Full House” captured the cultural consciousness with wholesome storylines and family-friendly laughs.

One Tgif show you probably don’t remember is a short-lived sitcom called “Aliens in the Family,” arguably a precursor to ABC’s equally surreal sci-fi comedy “The Neighbors.”

The plot revolved around single dad Doug Brody (John Bedford Lloyd), who was abducted by a spacecraft one night and subsequently met single alien mom Cookie (Margaret Trigg). Naturally, after such a romantic meet-cute, the two fell in love, got married, and tried to live a normal life on Earth as a mixed family with their five kids, three of whom were created as puppets by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

TV Review: ‘Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight’

TV Review: ‘Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight’
The subject matter is so intriguing as to exacerbate the sense that “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight” is something of a letdown, dramatically speaking. Anchored by Frank Langella and Christopher Plummer’s performances as Supreme Court Justices Warren Berger and John Harlan, this Vietnam-era story focuses on the court battle over Ali’s conscientious-objector status as a devout Muslim, which derailed the champ’s boxing career. Filled with interesting tidbits, director Stephen Frears’ film never quite coalesces — floating like a butterfly, all right, but delivering so little sting as to barely leave a mark.

Ali himself is presented only in archival newsreel footage and interviews, while the nine justices hash out what to do about his conviction and appeal. Cast to the hilt, in addition to Langella (who has now played both Richard Nixon and his Chief Justice) as the avuncular, patrician Berger, with Plummer as the wily, ailing Harlan,
