Alien joins a therapy group...next
17 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

GOING NATIVE, episode 17 of season 4 of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE, is an odd little non-eventer. The story, if you can call it that, sees an alien visiting Earth to learn more about the human race; to which end, she joins a therapy group. Before long she finds mankind is starting to rub off on her...

While I appreciate this story is something more than the usual obvious nonsense found in these shows, while it has an intriguing idea the premise is poor. There's no incident or action to propel the story, making this a mood piece more than anything else. The director succeeds in conjuring up a weird atmosphere but for the most part this is a dud with no proper story to act as its backbone.
