I just read on several US entertainment sites that Resident Alien has been picked up for a second season. This is shown on CTV Sci Fi in Canada. I am ecstatic ! This is the funniest show on television,. Too bad CTV doesn't seem to realize what they have and are not promoting it. In the US, the premiere was shown across several NBC networks and is getting great ratings on the Syfy channel. Too bad CTV hasn't figured this out yet.
Agreed, I'm enjoying it as well. I noticed a decent amount of Bell promotion in January before it premiered but nothing since. Nonetheless, I'm pumped for season 2.

I've been watching Resident Alien as well. It's one of the best new shows on TV. Anyone who likes it may be interested in the movie Starman(1984) with Jeff Bridges as the alien. A lot of the fish out of water humour in Resident Alien appears to be based on the film.

Interesting and unsettling. Time compression techniques are well known. They basically speed up the program in a way that goes unnoticed so that it airs in less time. Some stations and networks have done that with movies for decades. I doubt CTV is that sophisticated so it makes me wonder what we are missing. Is Resident Alien available uncut on Crave?

I saw a lot of promos on Bell Media channels leading up the premiere of Resident Alien and for about a month afterwards. It's not available on Crave, but you can stream it from CTV.ca if you have a CTV Sci-Fi subscription, or watch it On-Demand until May 1.

Yikes, I am also old enough to have watched Starman as well and I remember liking it at the time.
