Leave the comedy club for the spaceship!
15 March 2010 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This episode one from season two of "TFTD" titled "The Impressionist" is a feel good and light hearted one. It's theme centers around alien and space research. As in the mid 80's many sci-fi and horror fans were caught up in the subject of did aliens really exist. The plot features an over the hill club comedian who makes a living doing jokes and impressions of famous people and well known movie characters, plus to complicate matters his club promoter agent has mob ties. Then all of a sudden the episode twist as secret government agents have came in and captured an alien. Their goal is to see how it can interact and communicate with a human and you guessed it the funny man and mister impression is the lucky choice for the experiment. Along the way an unusual and unlikely communication friendship is formed. Overall good episode that's not really scary or horror themed more of a good hearted feel and sci-fi natured touch. Anyway it ends with a new beginning for the character.
