A Latino immigrant, Luis, and Greek immigrant, Hercules Valvalotus, are workers at a dingy urban café. Immigration officer Maggie Price is investigating Valvalotus' citizenship application, and Hercules turns on the sexual charm to try to get her to give him a break. Maggie reports his sexual harassment to her superior, Mr. Vega. That evening, Dr. Moss arrives at the café to give Hercules a physical. She succumbs to his masculine charms, but Maggie stumbles in on them and becomes insanely jealous. She meets with Hercules to try to seduce him, and learns that he's much, much more than a mere illegal alien.

I don't want to offend anyone but please...
31 March 2012 | by (El Salvador) – See all my reviews

I have not watched the series and this is the first and only episode I've seen 'til now, but I really think it was one of the worst things I've ever seen. First because of the silly plot, then because of the really really bad acting and finally because of the sequence.

As the other user said I was expecting to see an alien or extraterrestrial, like in the Tales from the darkside episode "The impressionist" where Spiffy Remo falls for a female extraterrestrial named Hoffgosh. Of course I'm not here to talk about Tales from the darkside, but anyways never in my life had I gotten so disappointed like now with this episode, its simply bad. I know the budget of the series was very poor but lacking effects it is mandatory to ask for a good story.

The cast's talent was completely wasted, but when I say cast I just mean Deborah Harry and Luis Guzman. The rest of the cast was really bad especially Tony Spiridakis, who thought he was the sexiest man on earth, come on "Desirable"? I would say annoying creature.

The sequence was so bad and of course the worst for me was when Dr. Moss appeared and instead of looking like doctor she seemed like a whore and also when Maggie realizes he's a mythological creature and of course the "lovemaking" scene which is implied but anyways annoying.
