It has been confirmed.

I will start over when I get back to MN; maybe watch it with Wife.  I've seen the first 3 or 4 episodes, but even tho' I have a cable subscription I can't get the newer episodes at syfy.com here -- probably because I'm not on my home cable network.

Today's "seasons" are WAY too short - I remember when a "season" had dozens of episodes.

The final episode actually made the alien a more sympathetic character.

SPOILER BELOW IN TINY WHITE FONT!


It turns out the doctor the alien killed and whose identity he subsequently assumed was actually the person who murdered the town doctor by poisoning his insulin. So the alien killed a killer.

Yes, that was a nice twist.

Also, yes on the seasons. I was mad when everyone started doing 13 episode seasons. Now they are down to 10. Pretty soon we'll be like the Brits, with six episode seasons, with new seasons every couple of years. Hollywood is fat and lazy.

On the other hand, Hollywood is also full of crappy writers.  If they can't write more "good" episodes, more won't be better.

If anyone hadn't gotten around to watching this, Amazon has the series at $10 to buy for streaming.

I'd forgotten that I started this thread. All in all I give Resident Alien VERY high marks. A very good intermingling of drama and comedy and some exceptionally funny moments over all.

I'm really looking forward to the second season as I really want to know what the motivation was for the doctor.

Right there with ya.   It was definitely a fun watch - even the Mrs, who doesn't really care all that much for sci-fi type shows, enjoyed it.  And Alan Tudyk really was just about perfect as the doctor/alien.

Definitely hoping for a season 2.

This is some bullshit!

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Because of various discounts and having purchased a few episodes separately, I was able to get the rest of the season for free.  Now my wife can watch it with me when she gets a chance.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

I have plenty of information about my prostate. 

I don't want to hear about yours.   ;)

Awesome!

While I was away on vacation over Christmas my DVR picked up the entire first season again. Syfy must have had a marathon.

I need to watch it again.

Well, it was on last night.  I think they must have all new writers and they are still in grade school.  What a disappointment.  It was a jumbled up mess.  I'll give it one more episode.
