  • Two bandmates have trouble writing songs because their lives are tedious. When they sneek into a parent's secret workstation, one of them sends the melody of their song into space...little do they know, this move will provide plenty of inspiration.

    The episode is fine until the end...the creatures are mortifyingly cheap (computerized golden forms) and the child alien only wanted to play? Quite lame indeed. The storyline is pretty unique, and had the aliens been well done and had a different reason for being there, this would have been a far better episode.
  • boring

    this is not what are you afraid of the dark is about its about scaring people with monsters and demons and ghosts but not sending a dinky message into space and getting an answer i mean in real life if you got an answer youd go straight to nasa to claim your reward mony and be excited no scareed that you broke your dads thingy-ma-bobber do-hicky.
