This show was awesome!
8 September 2004 | by Johnx71See all my reviews

I remember that I could not wait to see the new episodes of this show. It had comedy,adventure,romance and little bit of action all under a Sci-Fi theme. Thank you Abott & Costello and Lurle & Hardey because without them

male duo situational comedy would not be born and successfully popular as this show was at that time because everyone I knew was watching and talking about it! It may seem stupid and corny now but we would not be were we are today without the original classics and any show that follows in those same footsteps is a new classic. They Came From Outer Space is a new classic in my book!
