Quotes

[a group of human Purists have are protesting the admission of a Newcomer student by blocking the school door]

Protestor: We don't want them mixing with our kids. Their quarantine wasn't long enough. The ACLU got them released too soon. How do we know they're really safe?
Ms. Purist: I say we run them back to Slagtown!

Lovely series
18 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

I love this series, it's a shame it didn't last too long. Great acting by the main cast, and most importantly GREAT STORIES :)

Thank god the Alien Nation universe is still being continued through TV movies.

The relationship between George and Sikes is fun to watch, as they get closer and closer as friends.

The alien culture is also great, and believable.

A joy to watch.
