The final episode of season 2 of MONSTERS blatantly rips off a plot idea from the John Carpenter flick THEY LIVE. In it, a geeky kid discovers that his new stepfather is hiding a dark secret. When the lad puts on his special pair of glasses, they reveal that his stepfather is in actual fact a reptilian alien from outer space, intent on infiltrating Earth society.
Gee, where have we heard that one before? The answer is THEY LIVE, in which Roddy Pipper's glasses allowed him to see aliens who disguised themselves as human. Needless to say the execution is very weak in this story, with a silly execution and predictable ending, and the acting is bad. If you like the concept just go watch the cool Carpenter film instead.
