Mildly entertaining.
24 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Alan Webster has a very unusual set of parents--just how unusual, he has no idea! One day Dad informs him they'll be moving soon. This is tough for a teen to take...but when he discovers a hidden underground base, things get REALLY weird. When his folks then inform him that they are aliens, and he is one too, that's just too much for a kid to take!! They're returning to Alturus...and soon!

The show features a very nice and safe ending--one you'll probably MILDLY like. However, I really think it could have been better--such as learning that they're leaving because the Earth is about to be destroyed! Not a terrible show--and that's something since so many have been. But also not a particularly great one.
