    Aliens in America was a very funny show! It definitely deserved a longer run on the CW. It could have gone on for a few more years and gained more of an audience and become an amazing show.

    It was very, very funny. The acting was great, and the characters were very believable. the dialouge was incredibly witty, a rare occurance for TV these days. It was enjoyable and funny. the CW didn't give it enough promotion in my opinion. I only found it because it was free on iTunes. I really wish more episodes could have been made and that this show would be given another chance. Excellent cast, story, everything. Please CW bring it back! =]moreless
  • The basic premise is that a Muslim exchange student from Pakistan comes to live with a Christian family in Wisconsin. And, as you can imagine, chaos ensues. Haha.

    I started watching this show because of Scott Patterson (who played Luke on my favorite show EVER "Gilmore Girls") but I stayed with this show because of its heartwarming off the wall cleverness and originality. Raja comes to live with the Tolchucks (Justin, Gary, Claire and Franny). At first he's not so welcome, because the family expected to get a blonde haired blue eyed exchange student, and when they get a Muslim from Pakistan, they are anything but excited. But after awhile, after laughs and tears, each of the family members learn to love Raja, and by the show's finale, they really seemed like a family.moreless
  • it probably tried to project white sunurban Americans connecting with a non-white foreigner heart to heart, but buying doing so it is affirming racism and stereo-types. Anyway, it is not funny at all.moreless

    Complete waste of time. I felt uncomfortable with the settings of this show. This movie touches sensitive issues, racism and stereo-types. The part that comparing blond guy and Pakistani was setting racism to the audiences. What's wrong with him being not white and having different religion? Why should the show have to set it as disappointment and his pathetic life changes other people's perspectives? I don't get it. I know it probably tried to project white sunurban Americans connecting with a non-white foreigner heart to heart, but buying doing so it is affirming racism and stereo-types. Anyway, it is not funny at all.moreless

    Community Season 4 Premiere Review: Senioritis

    Look, I didn't want to start our discussion of Community's return talking about Dan Harmon either, but what we have here is an unavoidable Dan Harmon-sized elephant that, uhhh, isn't in the room anymore.
