Sort of a documentary...
29 July 2004 | by (Arlington, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

Just when you thought you were the only one in the world who has a copy of an old TV show, someone else finds it! This old CBS special aired in 1982 just before E.T. was released. It's intention was to get you to see E.T. in theaters, but the special instead shows a look back at older Sci-Fi movies involving aliens.

This special is produced well, and although it sort of has something to do with E.T., watch it more for the old movie clips, not to mention Robin Williams.

This is just one of many TV specials from the 1980's (mainly CBS) that have been buried and forgotten about, seemingly never to return again. This really should have been included as an "easter egg" on the 2003 E.T. DVD release. Imagine my surprise when I actually found an IMDb listing...
