    This plot had the perfect opening - Ralph needs to use the suit to rescue the space shuttle Columbia before it crashes to Earth (well Bakersfield, but everything always happens there!)



    Funny moments in the first half: Ralph wondering if he's going to be squashed under the shuttle as he brings it in for a landing; becoming magnetized and attracting utensils and Bill's gun.



    Then the story fell apart when it turns out that a space electrical alien hitches itself to the shuttle, and then goes into the LA sewer system. Problems with no remorse for shuttle incident, and the space alien itself - this is the type of plot line that was the beginning of the end.moreless
