    I was surprised the way this episode went. I figured that he would just convince Asta that she imagined all of the alien stuff because of a concussion or something. It's really getting more complicated and fun.

    I may have missed it earlier in the thread but how many episodes is this supposed to last for?

    I also noticed it has been renewed for a second season. :techman:

    I love that Asta and her father know Harry is an alien now, I always like it when they have at least one person in the know.
    It was nice getting to learn a bit more about Harry's people, and getting flashback's to D'Arcy's injury.
    It looks like next week we're getting both Girogio A. Tsoukalos, and Terry O'Quinn, so that should be fun.

    OMG, this show keeps getting better and better!

    Harry at an Alien Encounter Convention :guffaw::guffaw::guffaw:

    - the Alien meme guy
    - Harry commenting on various alien races "One of them owes me money. They're cute and they know it. They're nice."
    - Asta: " Some of them are here to do good." - Harry: "Nnnnope!" :guffaw::guffaw:

    Also the Sheriff getting some sense hammered into him and making amends with Liv in a very cute way was so nice to see ( though i doubt it was that easy as the wife did it).

    So next week it's the finale, will be interesting to see what happens with Darcy and her discovery and if Harry is able to repair the "radio".

    Since we now know there's going to be a second season, I will make the bold prediction Harry doesn't complete his mission. Otherwise, all bets are off, anything could happen next week.

    Yeah, the stuff at the alien convention was a blast. My favorite line was when Harry sees the people dressed as aliens and says that his people are not a costume, and Asta says "Welcome to my life".
    I pretty blown away by good of singers Corey Reynolds and Elizabeth Bowen are. Hopefully Mike (I'm not calling by his nickname), will treat Liv better this time.
    Definitely curious what's going to happen with D'Arcy finding the real Harry's body.

    Yeah, I knew you would like the 'murder stuff'. As for the voices, I'm not saying it wasn't their real voices, but I am certain they were redubbed (and a little processed) in a studio. Karaoke in a small bar cannot sound like that.

    I admit, I don't understand Asta's reply to the costume comment. What does she mean?

    Oh yeah, they definitely didn't record the singing live. But it's not that unusual, a lot of the dialouge we hear in shows and movies done through ADR anyways.
    Asta's comment was a reference to the decades of offensive, stereotyped Native American costumes people wore.

    I forgot Asta was a Native. I thought she looked white. I have had great trouble keeping track of everyone in this show. No color coded uniforms, you know. That said, I think I understood the Native at the convention who warned of another Colombus.

    Both Asta and the actress who plays her, Sara Tomko, are Native American.

    Harry's inner dialogue is hilarious throughout the show.

    I am having real trouble telling the women apart. Too many of them share the same hair, and they are always changing their clothes! I also didn't recognise the sheriff out of uniform. I thought he looked too young.

    Well, there are literally only two black people in the show and the other one was doing dinner with the mayor's family so....

    His facial expressions during his inner monologues are the icing on the cake - Alan Tudyk is just awesome :lol:

    ??? One of only two black men on the show, and the only character who is well over 6 feet tall, and you didn't recognize him?

    And the women on the show? There aren't that many to keep track of--Asta, a 30-something Native American woman and a lead character; Darcy, the short, blonde bartender/ex-Olympic skier; Kate, the black-haired wife of the mayor; Liv, the short, chubby blonde Deputy. The other side characters are the Government Agent and Darcy's friend/enemy who is always drunk.

    The only two women who look even somewhat similar are Darcy and her frenemy. :shrug:

    Oh, there is the widow of the deceased doctor, and the, oh, the wife of the other deceased doctor?!? (the one killed by the alien).

    Yeah, and she has a pretty distinctive look, so it would be pretty difficult to confuse her with anyone else.
