2 MCS, As a public service, I'm about to do for you(as well as the other Regulars+ all the 'Net trolls) what I've done for very few folks in my offline life- admit I actually watched this show. Yeah, I'm enough to remember it and was even legal age so I can't use the folly of youth as an excuse for having seen it! Back then, I was somewhat into sci-fi stuff and thought the idea of an alien trying to find out the customs of our planet intriguing enough to watch this. Not a bad premise in itself, right? Well,here goes what this was about, this alien warrior who rebelled against authority gets 'imprisoned' on Earth in a human body. Well, because he happened to steal some mechanic's coveralls for his first clothing and the coveralls were tagged with the name of 'Jesse', this would be the only name he'd be known as. With only the advantage of superhuman strength to help him survive, he was supposed to infiltrate our world observing customs as quietly and inobtrusively as possible. Of course, Jesse being somewhat of a warrior hothead couldn't do anything quietly and often would get into trouble by taking everything quite literally the humans would say to him. Oh, he had a combination nag/companion in the person. .er machine. .thing of this big, talking floating eyeball known as Control who at first was his marked advesary but once Jesse threatened to inform the alien bigwigs of Control's incompetence and offtask behavior, they truced it over to become kinda friends. Of course, this meant that Jesse had to constantly disguise, hide this eyeball to keep his cover from being an alien blown. After a few episodes, Jesse actually seemed to prefer staying here instead of going back where he came from and a great deal of his warrior angst got defused. Okay, if you've read this far, you get the idea that this seemed somewhat a lame show that didn't last long for good reason but I stuck it out as long as I could (what else was there to watch in 1989?). However; the show boned entirely when they had an episode in which Jesse became a Disney theme park employee but of course got into all kind of Disney scrapes. The floating eyeball somehow got drunk and wound up singing 'It's a Small World After All'. That was IT for me. I hope this helps. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Does anyone remember this show? I remember my parents used to watch it. I was too young to remember much of it. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 27, 2010, 9:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
