A show that should have been allowed to continue
20 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

"The Visitor" was a mature, well written science fiction drama in which the writers made the assumption that their target audience was intelligent and could follow the continuing story arc. Unfortunately, TV brass don't seem to believe that intelligence and TV audience have anything in common. So they killed a fantastic science fiction series after 13 episodes. What a shame.
