Very Good Show!
13 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I definitely miss this show. I was about 10 years old while it was airing, I found it very hilarious (at the account of Bo and Abe getting themselves into "hot water" whenever they would attempt a certain scheme) and I looked forward to watching it every Saturday afternoon while curled up in front of the television. Back then, I found it to be very original compared to what was airing on television at that time, it was definitely a breath of fresh air for me. This show is prime example of a good show that is overlooked and underrated because of all of the overrated, watered-down shows in which were competing with it at the time (It always seems to be the actual good shows that get the boot and the crapola shows that remain on television for at least 4 or 5 years). "They Came From Outer Space" will always remain a classic in MY book!
