Funny and Surreal
13 November 2003 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I love this show! I've been watching it on BBCAmerica, and it makes me laugh out loud--unlike American sitcoms. Ardal O'Hanlon is perfect in the role of an alien superhero, sniffing out trouble around Earth, dashing to the rescue quickly and efficiently--but absolutely clueless as to the ways and mores of earthly relationships. His attempts to adapt to Earth and England are for love, which makes them oddly endearing. The peripheral characters are a bit much; the Health Centre's receptionist Mrs. Raven and pompous Dr. Piers Crispin for example are one-note characters, and quickly become tiring. But the central relationship of George "Thermoman" Sunday and his lovely Janet (played with the right balance of affection and exasperation by Emily Joyce) sustains this lightweight but thoroughly enjoyable comedy.
