Thought-provoking, witty and entertaining, this action-packed blend of science fiction and police drama finds Los Angeles the new home of 300,000 humanoid extraterrestrial. When a gang of these Newcomers kills a police detective's (James Cann) partner, he sets out to solve the crime with his new partner (Mandy Patinkin) - the L.A.P.D.'s first Newcomer detective. But the unlikely pair soon uncover a far more dangerous threat to society.

The future kind of sucks. (431 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Aliens who are slaves, on other planets, arrive on Earth, hoping that the people would be okay, with them having jobs, blending in, having houses, and other things. There is also a drug, that is being produced in hopes of keeping the aliens productive. Year it takes place: 1991"

A few years from now, Earth will have the first contact with an alien civilisation. These aliens, known as Newcomers, slowly begin to be integrated into human society after years of quarantine but are victims of a new type of discrimination. When the first Newcomer police officer, Sam Francisco is assigned his new partner"

"A few years from now, Earth will have the first contact with an alien civilisation. These aliens, known as Newcomers, slowly begin to be integrated into human society after years of quarantine. Back in the day, Alien Nation was a bit of a big deal although the series didn't last that long. I can't believe it's taken me this long to finally watch it. This is the pilot movie that started it all. To be honest, it isn't that different from any other buddy cop movie you've ever seen except that this"
