Did anyone see this new TV show about an average couple moving into a neighborhood populated by aliens? I laughed out loud a couple times and while it's no deeper than a saucer I really enjoyed it. The broad, zany humor was funny but I really liked the more subtle stuff- like when the two guys met and the human said "you guys are harmless and peace-loving" and the alien gave this perfect, wordless "not-so-much" shrug.

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Loved it! Silly and fun with a sort of Mars Attacks meets Edward Scissorhands stylistic feel. I don't know how long they can sustain the alien humor, but Jami Gertz was fantastic in the pilot.

I couldn't decide if I loved it or thought it was dumb. I did LOL several times though.

I loved Jami's reaction while the mother was doing the dishes.
