Resident Alien (Peacock)

Post by shiki-jitsu »

Started watching this. I am enjoying it so far, only a few eps into Season 1. Alan Tudyk is really good in this, and honestly its a fantastic cast

I watched it when it was first on Peacock and enjoyed it. It's the scifi version of Reservation Dogs. Be warned, it ends on a cliffhanger and never comes back. Worth the watch though.

I think you are either thinking of another show, or there was a long break, but Season 3 is currently airing now. There may have been a break during the strike?

Second time this comes recommended to me. After I finish up Res Dogs, I'll jump in on this.

I'm thinking I might make one to keep in the trunk of the car though. Might be nice to have hot water if I ever have to watch a Matthews compound for 3-4 days hoping to get the drop on Sergio Frenchi. - Neon Bolan

I'm definitely thinking about this show, I didn't realize that it was airing again though. It's been gone for a while, it ended early fall 2022, and wasn't around at all in 2023. I'm glad to hear that it's airing again because it was a good show. When I saw that peacock had given up on it and it was on Netflix I figured for sure that meant it was gone for good. Peacock tends to hang on to current shows.

What I liked about it was that it seemed to bypass a lot of the formulaic TV nonsense, and do its own thing. Now that I know it's going to have season 3 I'm going to probably start watching this again.

It reminds me a bit of People of Earth (helps that the bartender of The 59 was also on People of Earth) and that show was cancelled way too early.

:lol: True.

That's why I've never heard of it. I don't have cable so Ted Turner is not part of my life. One day he will let his great-great-grandkids take over and build a streaming platform. Is he still married to Hanoi Jane? It's probably her fault.

I agree, it looks pretty good. Fuck you Hanoi Ted and Hanoi Jane! This is why we shouldn't let the libtards run TV. :shake:

Watched the first couple of episodes last night and digging it. Good blend of comedy, drama and mystery. I hope they can keep that going through three seasons.

They really do. I'm glad this is back for S3.
