Storyline

In this series, the alien returns to find and assist the child he fathered fourteen years before on his visit to Earth. When he arrives, he takes on the identity of Paul Forrester, a prize-winning free-lance photographer with a rather wild reputation killed in a helicopter accident. He finds the child (Scott Hayden) and his mother (Jenny) have been separated. Paul convinces Scott to help him to locate Jenny, his friend from his first visit to Earth. Unfortunately, their search is plagued by George Fox, a paranoid government agent who feels Paul and Scott are dangerous and wants to capture, examine, and probably kill them.

Ami Dolenz
7 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember one show with Ami Dolenz when Scott Hayden was actually attending a high school. She starred in that 80's movie with Tony Danza, "She Drives Me Crazy". She was like Christie Brinkley beautiful,as in drop-dead-gorgeous and a "dream-of-her-many-a-night-hottie" only closer to my age. Thankfully we had just gotten a VCR the year before, so I was able to watch it over and over again. I also remember that they used Huey Lewis' "The Heart of Rock and Roll" which quickly became my favorite song. It had the perfect tragic ending with Scott and his dad being forced to leave because the bad guys began to close in. I remember thinking I would not have left Ami Dolenz for any reason. But then again, my father has never truly been an alien. At least that I am aware of.
