[ # ] Alan Tudyk is a lovable Resident Alien who wants to kill us all
January 27th, 2021 under Syfy


Tonight at 10p, you are going to fall in love with Resident Alien on Syfy. There is a new doctor in Patience, Colorado, and he is alien to their ways. I mean, he is an alien.

A few months ago, Captain Hah Re (Alan Tudyk) crashed down onto Earth, and he took on the body of Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle. Now, he is stuck here because he lost the device he needs to complete his mission.

The doctor recently moved to the small town and remained a hermit in his cabin. Therefore, no one noticed that the alien killed him and took over his body. However, when the town doctor is murdered, they come to Vanderspeigle to find out what happened. Now, not only does he have to pretend to be human, but he also has to pretend to be a doctor. Good thing he watched all of those Law & Order marathons. Will they be enough to convince the town that he is the man whose skin he is in?

Sara Tomko (Asta Twelvetrees) was the doctor’s nurse. She can sense there is something off with the new doctor, but she likes him and his quirky ways. Like him, she never felt like she belonged in her small town. Therefore, she is always there to back him up. Something that he is going to need quite often because Law & Order didn’t prepare him for interacting with humans.

There is one human he cannot interact with, and that is Max (Judah Prehn). He is an 8-year-old boy who can see that Vanderspeigle is an alien. He tries to tell everyone the truth, including his father, the Mayor (Levi Fiehler), but no one believes him.

Even the town Sheriff (Corey Reynolds) thinks the kid is lying. However, he doesn’t like the new resident. Then again, he doesn’t like anyone. He is one of those smalltown sheriffs that is really tough and loves being in charge. Thankfully Deputy Liv Baker (Elizabeth Bowen) is the opposite of him.

Vanderspeigle is going to need all the help he can get to fit in with all of these humans. Fitting in is something that is going to be hard for him. That is until he tries some alcohol. Drunk Vanderspeigle is the best thing.

Actually, everything is the best thing when you watch him trying to adapt to our ways. Tudyk is just so endearing as he plays this alien whose mission is to destroy Earth, but he cannot let the Earthlings know that. He is a douchebag, but a lovable douchebag.

Will the douchebag have a change of heart the more he interacts with humans? Will they rub off of him, or will they convince him he is doing the right thing?

Most Sci-Fi shows lose their likability after the pilot, not Resident Alien. It gets more and more delightful with each episode. It is unlike anything else on television, and boy do we need it.

I am enjoying this show so much; I am going to declare that it is the best new show of the season. Nothing even comes close to it.
