Subject: Who's Your Favorite Alien?


I was feeling nostalgic for the good TV shows and remembered
Gunsmoke starring James Arness. I remembered years of watching
that show with my Dad and Granddad and the lessons the program

The longest running dramatic series in TV history too!

Then I remembered not only did actor James Arness play the most
famous lawman in TV history, but he also played the coolest and
scariest alien in movie history for my money, namely the Thing
from Howard Hawkes classic The Thing From Another World. Gotta
be the best alien movie ever. Sure, I'm about to get lambasted
with Klaatu's and Spocks - Spock rules by the way - but The
Thing was a no-nonsense alien with one agenda: survive!

No pretense, no benevolent messages and nebulous agendas, just:

Not only was The Thing a great movie all around and co-starred
an endless stream of talent, Mr. Arness also starred in another
sci-fi great Them!, about the giant ants. Seems like whatever
he touched turned to gold and became classics. That's what it's
all about, what you make lives on.

So we've had our share of aliens on TV and film and Arness'
Thing is mine, who's yours and why?
