Storyline

An archaeological expedition in Peru exploring ancient Incan ruins uncovers a strange casket. When the seals are released, a white man, somehow still alive is discovered. The man turns out to be Bennu, a visitor from another planet. Information he was supposed to have had been stored in the casket, but was destroyed by the archaeologists when they opened it. Bennu must learn to survive on earth, avoiding Peruvian government representatives who want to worship him as a god, and US government agents who want to disect an alien.

remembering an old show from the 80's
19 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

hi, I too remember it from way back when and was totally into it as a kid. I would love to see it again, and I also wondered what happened to the woman he was looking for. She was awakened ahead of time too or something like that, right? does anyone know if you can purchase this somewhere, with so many shows going onto DVD, i wonder if the lesser know hits or near misses would make it onto DVD as well. at this point, id take VHS, just to watch it again. there are some other shows out there that id like to see as well, like salavage one, automan, voyagers, those were all pretty cool shows in the early 80's.
