Storyline

Three junior-high pals build a TV super antenna that can even pull in outer-space channels. The aliens seem to be huge fans of 1950s American television, especially comedy, since they've made their own versions of classic TV shows and sitcoms from the era. The kids also catch an alien newscast about the aliens' plans to sand a team of their astronauts to land in Hollywood in 1985 and meet their favorite stars and maybe even take them back to their home planet. The kids decide to find the aliens and help them achieve this dream. Written by Anonymous

Awful
22 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was probably one of the worst episodes of the entire series. 3 aliens, scrambled story, a predictable plot and nothing amazing whatsoever. Overall this is one of those episodes that stops "Amazing Stories" from being the next kin to the Twilight Zone. Thankfully there are episodes in season 1 and 2 that more than make up for this waste of time.

Don't write the entire series off tough, in my opinion the episodes get better as the series goes on. I think season 2 especially has some truly amazing stories. So if you can get your hands on the season 2 DVD it will be well worth the money!
