A buddy cop series, but with aliens, with overtones of very difficult social topics.
This is surprisingly good, either in addition to, or separate from, the movie. While I didn't particularly like the movie, this series is recommended. Anyone who liked the original movie[doesn't exist] should definitely continue the franchise with this series.
This continues from Alien Nation - (1988 movie), including a story arc.
- I don't know what it is about the series, but it has left a much stronger positive impression than the film.
Though the series opens with a two-part TV-movie, although they could easily be viewed as separate pieces.
