Lovely series
18 January 1999 | by JJFabbsySee all my reviews

I love this series, it's a shame it didn't last too long. Great acting by the main cast, and most importantly GREAT STORIES :)

Thank god the Alien Nation universe is still being continued through TV movies.

The relationship between George and Sikes is fun to watch, as they get closer and closer as friends.

The alien culture is also great, and believable.

A joy to watch.
