Character Driven Series
I saw a lot of bad reviews on this show and I think it's because people are looking at it all wrong. I gave the show a 9/10 because at one point I felt it "Jumped the Shark" but overall it was a great series.
I watched it on NetFlix and was able to binge watch which was great because I didn't have to wait for the next episode. It is true that the plot line had some holes and at times it got a bit unrealistic but if your looking for realistic watch a documentary.
The characters had great chemistry and they grew throughout the story. The annoying young girl at the beginning, as some described, felt completely natural. Think about it, they open with a character that has been somewhat sheltered. How else would you expect a character like that to act. Charlie is a young adult with ideals that she has acquired through her short life experience, she is idealistic and at times unrealistic. It's perfect!
Her uncle, Miles, is a cynical rugged loner that is thrown into a responsibility he did not expect to have. What would you expect that to look like?
The actors did a superb job in the roles they were given, completely believable. My enjoyment came not so much from the storyline but the evolution of the characters and how they dealt with each situation they were thrown. Don't listen to the poor reviews, do yourself a favor and give this series a shot you will be pleasantly surprised, especially if you like character driven stories.
Robert Hays as Starman
I just finished watching the Starman series again. I loved this show as a teenager when it first came out. However, I now realize a lot of the actual storyline and meaning of it was lost on my youth. In watching the show again, I see how well Robert Hays brought to life the character of the alien wrapped in the body of Paul Forrester.
The interactions between Paul the Alien and Paul Forrester and his old friends, family, or acquaintances are priceless. Each Paul has a different feel to him, the way he stands, the way he moves, or the way he reacts to different things. We truly believe that Paul the Alien is experiencing some things for the first time. However, it's not overkill either.
This is a great show that probably deserved at least another season. It seems like all the good science fiction shows are cut too short.
