Maybe She Has Some Interplanetary Sexual Attraction!
30 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a bad episode. The overly dramatic acting. The silly romantic thing. The reason for the guy even being there is hardly explained. Yes, he wants to see flying saucers. But he can't seem to focus because he falls in love in about five seconds. Then there's the old guy who is constantly poisoning the well by bugging our hero. Why is he there other than to be an annoyance? Had this have been a Western, he would have been the useless sidekick. The whole thing is random and pointless and really goes nowhere. It's as if it was being made up as they went along and the actors learned their lines on the fly. If this had been the first episode, there may not have been any more.
