Pilot deserved better handling
20 January 2007 | by (Fair Oaks, Ca,United States) – See all my reviews

This pilot was only shown once on CBS? As a (open to new shows) 12 year old, I found this show quite enjoyable. Not always funny. Some hit and miss jokes. The concept of the aliens (Shirley Jones Et. Al) coming to earth to invade? Or dominate the human race with technically backward technology, was kind of amusing to me. Especially when the aliens showed off their Advanced technology (A cigarette lighter) to the main human in his house they barged into. Shirley Jones, as I recall, looked stunning in her "Wonder Woman" type alien suit.(As a matter of fact, the Carl Ballantine alien insisted, by their Planet's aesthetic reasoning, that the gorgeous Shirley Jones was considered homely! And, as shown later on, the aliens fall head over heels over an overweight, underwhelming looking woman they all woo in a restaurant. Later on, in the last shot of the show, we see them taking her home, in the back of the car, in an open horse trailer, chomping down food!) The only other things I remember, is one of the male aliens stiffening up like a board for hours, if he drank any small amount of alcohol...I could be wrong about what the liquid was. The last shot in the show, was everyone piled in a car,at night, going down the road with a male alien standing up in the back, with his arms angled slightly up, completely stiff also... not to mention our gross fat lady in the trailer. This show should have been picked up. But let's face it. It was not meant to be. The "Partridge Family" was the show that was destined to be. Oh, by the way, CBS , for a brief 6 weeks?, Showed failed pilots. I recall one sitcom called "Operation Entertainment?" or "Operation Backstage"? That took place in WWII , about USO performers. Starring "Tim Conway". But then... that's another story.
