Disney-style storyline
11 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

PARENTS FROM SPACE is a straightforward body-swap episode of MONSTERS. In it, a young girl suffers at the hands of her unpleasant parents, so she's delighted when aliens land on Earth and swap bodies with her elders. The new versions are a great improvement, but what about when the aliens swap back?

Unlike the preceding episode GLIM-GLIM, which was fabulous stuff indeed, PARENTS FROM SPACE is a rather twee and forgettable. It feels like a short Disney film more than anything else, and despite the presence of alien characters in the cast, not much really happens. The most notable thing about it is that Frank Gorshin (the BATMAN TV series) plays the father character.
