Resident Alien: Writing Combined Comedy and Science-Fiction

As a writer, I’m fascinated by other writer’s work. In particular, I’m a science fiction writer, so when a new science-fiction series airs I usually try to check it out, even if it’s bad.

“Resident Alien” over on the SyFy network is anything but bad. It is brilliant. It is also a master class in how to write engaging comedy into a science-fiction plot.
