Michael T. Weiss,
In this series, the alien returns to find and assist the child he fathered fourteen years before on his visit to Earth. When he arrives, he takes on the identity of Paul Forrester, a prize-winning free-lance photographer with a rather wild reputation killed in a helicopter accident. He finds the child (Scott Hayden) and his mother (Jenny) have been separated. Paul convinces Scott to help him to locate Jenny, his friend from his first visit to Earth. Unfortunately, their search is plagued by George Fox, a paranoid government agent who feels Paul and Scott are dangerous and wants to capture, examine, and probably kill them.Written by

In Starman (1984), the alien uses one hair from Scott Hayden in order to replicate his body. In the series, he uses blood from Paul Forrester. See more »
The trouble is the math does not work. NASA launched the Voyager probes in 1977. This was found by the Starman in the first movie and was his "invitation" to visit Earth. The show takes place in 1986 and Scott is now 14 year old. Which means Starman visited Earth 14 years earlier, which would be 1972 -- five years before the Voyagers were launched. See more »
This show picks up 14 years after the movie left off. The alien returns to earth to find the woman he had met during the movie and the child he had fathered. He finds the son, now a teenager, and together they search for the mother, while being hounded by a government agent. In the movie, the woman helped Starman (who apparantly had no corporal form of his own and assumes the body of a photographer who has just died in a helicopter accident in the show) learn about earth customs; in the tv show, the son does the same.
All in all, I thought this was a decent television show and a worthy companion to one of my favorite movies of all time.
