Another weird one from the past
24 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty much everything in my life that happened prior to 1982 is shrouded in that strange haze that gets harder and harder to push through every year. Fortunately, UFO Kidnapped I remember relatively clearly.

I even remember the promos for it (done by the narrator Nickelodeon had for years). "What's happening to Alasdair?" was pretty much all the ad said, and showed the scene where Alasdair was about to be scooped up by the alien ship---which all we knew at the time was that we could see Alasdair screaming and lots of psychedelic lights.

The show was built up over the course of at least a couple months before the premiere, and very little was revealed about it beforehand. I found it odd that Kevin and Alasdair played "themselves" just as they had on You Can't Do That On Television, with just about everyone else from the cast playing a completely different role....and this movie was largely dead serious, as in about as serious as a Doctor Who episode. Mild humor and not a great deal of it.

My guess is they wanted to give the kids a chance at serious acting, just so they could say they had the experience, knowing they'd ultimately grow up and leave Nickelodeon and might want to continue an acting career. Which, incidentally, wasn't very long for Kevin Kubecheski, I think at this point he had already left the cast of You Can't Do That On Television.

Those of you who liked You Can't Do That On Television will recall there was a video game in Blip's Arcade called "UFO Kidnapped" and in one episode, we see Alasdair entering the arcade, saying, "I can't wait to play UFO Kidnapped."
