Storyline

Colonel Paul Foster is a test pilot whose aircraft is accidentally caught up in a battle between an Unidentified Flying Object and a SHADO rocket. Foster's plane is shot down and his co-pilot is killed. When he comes round in hospital nobody will believe his fanciful story of what he saw. Until he is made an offer that he cannot refuse, namely an invitation to join SHADO and donate his skills or, quite simply, death. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

When Commander Straker is on the outside film set with Paul Foster he fires the pistol three times, on the third shot we hear a ricochet sound. This cannot possibly happen as later we see that the pistol is loaded with blanks so there is no bullet to ricochet. See more »

A Rather Obvious Introduction
9 September 2008 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

UFO is a show that probably has far too many characters . It's obvious in the later episodes that the writers can't find a way of using characters to any idiosyncratic effect . For example Alec Freeman more or less gets written out of the show later on and you can't help thinking why was he included in the first place ?

Identified is the first episode of the series with Exposed being the second . These are the only two episodes where everyone agrees on chronology because lie so many shows made for an American markets there's a lack of internal continuity which makes a series more attractive to television syndicates - you can show the episodes in any order without there being any jarring confusion in the narrative

Exposed deals entirely with the introduction of Paul Foster who is effectively UFO's action hero . With so many characters used in the first episode it would have been nigh on impossible to introduce such a major character with an episode that sets up the programme's premise . It might have been an okay episode but it rather let down by the little plot details such as how did SHADO modify the film so that a UFO wouldn't appear on it . The dialogue is unfortunately laughably melodramatic in places which leaves you unconvinced that it's actually a adult show in the same way THE X FILES can be viewed as an adult show
