I miss this one...
3 August 1999 | by Mark N.See all my reviews

"They Came From Outer Space" was one of the last great sitcoms of its time. Much like "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" (1992) the show relied on craziness to catch the viewer's attention. In the show, Bo and Abe were two sex-crazed teenagers who travel from planet Cruton to Earth. The show dealt with their encounters with alien women and all the trouble they got into. Overall, the show was hilarious and the theme song was just as great!
