Oh My God.....
14 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Aliens in the Family is really the Meccah of the absurd. The show makes no sense, it doesn't pretend that it makes sense, and it proudly wears it's complete and utter disregard for quality. I guess the show has a "plot" of some sort, but that really doesn't matter. There is absolutely no reason to watch this show, unless your looking for the cheesiest, campiest, most poorly written, most poorly acted, most blatantly horrible show ever made. Watching this show is much like commiting suicide. You know it's probably not the best thing to do, but that doesn't mean you've never contemplated it. Normal writing can't describe this, so I've written a Haiku. "A Frightening Dream, This Show was on the T.V.
