While covering a flight of the US Air Force's X-15 rocket plane, newspaper reporter Tim O'Hara finds a crashed alien spaceship that contains one live martian, a kindly professor that specializes in the Earth's backwards culture. The martian can levitate things, read minds and disappear when he raises his antennas. Not wanting to be discovered by the authorities, he assumes the identity of Tim's Uncle Martin and begins to repair his spaceship so that he can return to Mars. Written by
I used to watch this show when I was a kid growing up in Berkeley, California in the early 60s. This is a TV show that needs to be re-run as is in the 21st century to remind us of what intelligent and pure living was like in the 19503-60s. It is also so funny. I prefer it over any TV show today. The pilot episode is in fact based on a real UFO event recorded by Time Magazine, July 27th, 1962. Major White who test flew the X-15 at supersonic speeds reportedly saw a UFO out of his window while in flight. Back then, Time reported UFO encounters by Expert Witnesses and did not make fun of them. Today, we must See "Dan Aykroyd, Unplugged on UFOs" to know this is all real.
I wish I could have met the cast! They are all passed away and perhaps know the truth that we are not alone in the universe.
