Storyline

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.

Trivia

In the original movie Scott Hayden (Jeff Bridges) had seven silver spheres, which were the tools of his civilization. Every time he used one it disappeared. In the series, Paul Forrester (Robert Hays) has only one silver sphere, but this one doesn't disappear after one use. See more »

Goofs

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 »
