Goofs

The Alturus star system is described as 85 billion miles from Earth. That wouldn't even get you to the Oort Cloud. It's still part of our solar system. The nearest star, Proxima Centauri, is about 25 trillion miles away. These distances were known in 1985. See more »

Mildly entertaining.
24 June 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Alan Webster has a very unusual set of parents--just how unusual, he has no idea! One day Dad informs him they'll be moving soon. This is tough for a teen to take...but when he discovers a hidden underground base, things get REALLY weird. When his folks then inform him that they are aliens, and he is one too, that's just too much for a kid to take!! They're returning to Alturus...and soon!

The show features a very nice and safe ending--one you'll probably MILDLY like. However, I really think it could have been better--such as learning that they're leaving because the Earth is about to be destroyed! Not a terrible show--and that's something since so many have been. But also not a particularly great one.
