Just caught up to ep 5.
The kids and Harry in the diner when they come to a truce just sealed it for me as one of my favorite shows in years.

The writing is great.

He keeps calling his wife a hot ham.

Oh also who are those two agents that seem to be tracking Harry?
I saw them in episode four but don’t remember seeing them before.

The most recent episode gives you all the info on them.

I loved the scene with the octopus.

This show is pretty fun, and has some great off-kilter writing.

"I could grow a mustache. But then I'd have to become a fireman. Or a pedophile."

Added bonus - the actress playing Max's mom is really cute, reminds a bit of Kate Beckinsale.

Last night's episode was a real game-changer.

Really enjoying this show (haven't watched this week's yet) - Tudyk is great of course, but the secondary characters have also come into their own. And the writing/jokes are pretty solid overall. only complaint is that I don't like the military angle/characters that much (including Hamilton).

I will remove my clothing and then I will mount you,
not giving you all my weight, which will tax your haunches.


One of my favorite new series this year - it's an excellent showcase for Alan Tudyk's comic gifts.
Definitely takes a few episodes past the pilot, but most of this ensemble of quirky townsfolk including Wetterlund, Tomko, Reynolds click very well. But even when this show gets spotty (the undercover military psycho is a bit much, Max's clueless parents) Mr. Tudyk himself makes this take on the entire fish out of water premise worth watching.

I felt like even Terry O'Quinn was also wasted in his guest spot.

It looks like the last few episodes are laying the groundwork for the arrival of some other (rival?) alien races/species in Patience next season. If that was the resolution to the murder investigation surrounding the former town doc, then that was as disappointing as the last 10 minutes of a bad Monk episode (though it was a huge win for Deputy Liv and her murder board). yes, they alluded to the wife being a suspect early when she was 'pro-murder' and concerned with the insurance policy. But with all those dead ends, I was hoping for something way out of left field like the actual Harry Vanderspeigle being involved.


those assembly/instruction manual opening sequences - short and sweet

Happy for the renewal and looking forward to tonight's season finale.

Spoiler:
The finale did show the real Harry was the one who poisoned the doc, presumably so he and the wife could be together.



I'm really looking forward to next season.

Oh my gosh! Watching episode 2 of season 2 and loving the subplots and sight gags. This is a great show!

I just got caught up with the 1st episode and I laughed so much. Harry's descriptions of sex were hilarious. Tudyk has really good chemistry with Sara Tomko.

when Kate was getting horny when Ben described fighting off the intruder.

Re: Resident Alien (SyFy) -- S: Alan Tudyk -- Premieres 1/27/21

Yeah, this show is still killing it and a lot of fun to watch. Great cast and I can see that due to what was probably a demand by fans of the show, that the Octopus has more screen time. I love how droll the Octopus is when he is asked if Astra will be spared when the Aliens come down to kill everyone one earth, and he says well, she is a human being so yes she will be killed.

At most, I watch this show a day after it has aired as I just enjoy watching almost at the same time the show airs. The show that airs after, Astrid & Lilly Save The World is also one I enjoy watching, but I have to delay watching until at least the next day because I am trying to sleep as early as 10 pm.

The Octopus and Sheriff are my favorite characters. The first couple episodes of season two have been great.

If any of you subscribe to Peacock, the episodes are posted to there after it airs. You don't need a cable subscription.

Yeah I know most here don't subscribe to Peacock.

Just got caught up on this. Really enjoying it so far.
The sheriff is great. I had to look it up, didn't realize (with the accent) he was from The Closer.

I signed up for Peacock to watch the Super Bowl. I watched everything else I wanted to see on here and decided to give this a try. I'll have to wait to see the rest after tomorrow's episode though unfortunately.

I liked the "men in black" woman, hope we get more of her.

I hadn't realized this but Resident Alien's first season made it out on Blu-ray.

This show continues to be so much fun to watch, and I am enjoying our Resident Alien's adventures in New York. Nice catch on the Sheriff Molson, as it took me a sec to go oh yeah, that is where I have seen him before.

This show is bullshit.

It is not as good as Law and Order.

Is this available on basic Peacock? Or do I need a SyFy subscription?
