An archaeological expedition in Peru exploring ancient Incan ruins uncovers a strange casket. When the seals are released, a white man, somehow still alive is discovered. The man turns out to be Bennu, a visitor from another planet. Information he was supposed to have had been stored in the casket, but was destroyed by the archaeologists when they opened it. Bennu must learn to survive on earth, avoiding Peruvian government representatives who want to worship him as a god, and US government agents who want to disect an alien. Written by

This was the greatest short-lived series of the 80s, and it holds up well even after nearly 25 years. Sure, it's cheesy but it really is a true classic. I was devastated when it suddenly disappeared from the air so many years again, and am glad I was finally able to see it again. Only 5 episodes (including the pilot) were ever made but every one of them is brilliant. According to the posting guidelines, I'm unable to provide a URL to where you can get it again on DVD, but let's just say that if you let Google be your guide, you should easily be able to find all 5 episodes for only 5 bucks somewhere on the net! Peace. Enjoy.
