  • Bad special effects mar otherwise decent episode.

    "The Martians are Coming, the Martians are Coming" is one of three sci-fi themed episodes produced in the 3rd season as a result of the popularity of "Star Wars" the summer before. Probably the strongest of the three, the episode is marred by inclusion of the worst special effects of the entire series. Jaime goes on a hunt for a UFO after Rudy Wells and a colleague are abducted in plain view of witnesses while on a fishing trip. Secret government installation under a barn is a bit far-fetched, but fun. Appealing guest actress Lynn Carlin is sorely underutilized. Yet again, the writers inappropriately include an unnecessary male flirtation in the form of a journalist who dogs Jaime throughout. Where is Chris Williams and why doesn't Jaime seem to remember that she has a boyfriend? Overall, OK.
