    Has anyone watched this new show from TBS?

    Watch Episodes of People of Earth on tbs

    It features Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show), Ana Gasteyer (SNL) and Oscar Nunez (The Office). A very clever send-up of the alien abduction question. The aliens are pretty much as clueless and incompetent as the Earthlings. Good fun.

    Not yet. But I'll give it a try tonight. Thanks for the heads up, Clovis-man.

    And at least one "surprise" saved for the next episodes in 2017. It's been a lot of fun so far. Ana Gasteyer has been great. So has Ken Hall as Jeff the Grey.

    I watched this at the same time I was watching Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and honestly expected it to pale in comparison; however it seemed that I had more fun watching People of Earth than I expected.

    Watched the first episode of the new season. It's going to be fun. With Nasim Pedrad as the unappreciated FBI agent, some new twists will ensue. And poor Jeff the Grey must now struggle with management problems.

    I just saw the pilot. Absolutely hysterical. 10-15 years ago I wanted to be Gerry. Now, I'm the biggest skeptic on the planet, but it certainly brings me back. I love it! I hope it makes fun of all the things I used to "research," and "believe in."

    I found the

    hysterical. Pretty much makes fun of every single weird thing that happens in science fiction.

    Just started watching. Good that there is a story that works as well as the comedy.

    So People of Earth brought up a very interesting phenomena in Alien lore. I'm sad to say that I'm somewhat of an expert in the subject but that only makes sci-fi that much more fun for me. So in Episode nine Ozzie's parents said, this line:
    I told myself that was interesting and I go back in my memory and I can't really recall any significant African American alien abduction stories. I remember the famous case of Barney and Betty Hill. Barney and Betty Hill - Wikipedia. Now, Barney is African American, but what I found interesting as I went back over their "cases" was this:

    So there does seem to be some truth in the matter, but I am hardly an expert on what African cultures think of UFOs.

    Are the writers reading our thread? Betty and Barney were a small part of the episode I just watched with the Alien Abduction Con.

    The end of that episode was the funniest part. I like Jeff the best. He steals the show.
