In this series, the alien returns to find and assist the child he fathered fourteen years before on his visit to Earth. When he arrives, he takes on the identity of Paul Forrester, a prize-winning free-lance photographer with a rather wild reputation killed in a helicopter accident. He finds the child (Scott Hayden) and his mother (Jenny) have been separated. Paul convinces Scott to help him to locate Jenny, his friend from his first visit to Earth. Unfortunately, their search is plagued by George Fox, a paranoid government agent who feels Paul and Scott are dangerous and wants to capture, examine, and probably kill them.Written by

In Starman (1984), the alien uses one hair from Scott Hayden in order to replicate his body. In the series, he uses blood from Paul Forrester. See more »
The trouble is the math does not work. NASA launched the Voyager probes in 1977. This was found by the Starman in the first movie and was his "invitation" to visit Earth. The show takes place in 1986 and Scott is now 14 year old. Which means Starman visited Earth 14 years earlier, which would be 1972 -- five years before the Voyagers were launched. See more »
Although we are talking about aliens/scifi and the naivety of the culturistic past, Starman was 'good TV'. If you are honest with yourself, TV today is about CGI, forced action, demons, witches, werewolves and a plethora of crime based spoofs. This is what has captivated the TV viewers of today... I realize that I am from a different era, however I have the option to watch all that stuff too. I choose not to. Not always because of the questionable content that the TV shows have, but the commercial content that goes along with it. Don't you realize that crime TV is laced with commercials that encourage questionable activities, like just do it, drinking alcohol and commercials that totally disregard your health? I do not remember the commercials of yesteryear for Starman the TV series, but I do know that the commercials of today are far from being those of 1986. Starman should be an example to us that we should be conscience of our actions, we should be eager to help others that are in need and willing to do that right thing; even if that means to accept the consequences. A good TV company could resurrect the STARMAN series simply by pointing out the needs of society that are destroying us today.
