General idea: if aliens exist, we’d discriminate against them, too.
Interesting because: The plots were generally pretty solid and we were able to see a humanization of an alien species. This is a classic struggle of assimilation in a fairly hostile environment. I think part of my enjoyment of the series also ties back to the original movie.
Annoying because: Preachy much? From what I had read, the director wanted the series to take a harder sci-fi tone but Fox basically wanted an alien buddy cop comedy. Also, ’80s hair (and production values).
Best season(s): 1
Worst season(s): N/A — only lasted one season, although there were 5 movies made a few years later
