In regard to a comment made about Fox TV's "Alien Nation...

February 18, 1990

In regard to a comment made about Fox TV's "Alien Nation" (Viewers' Views, Jan. 14), I disagree that it was a good idea badly developed. The series falls in line with the theatrical movie "Alien Nation," but utilizes the cop-show format to attract viewers to a show about racism. This way we can experience the lead characters' interracial friendship, view the rights and wrongs of our society through innocent eyes, reevaluate our standards about racism and still have a good time. The series also deals with the everyday situations of other aliens from all walks of life, and with alien culture, which reminds us of what an ethnic melting pot Los Angeles (the show's setting) really is. Call it a radical idea speaking through subtleties.
