The Visitor: Season 1 (1997-1998)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: John Corbett possesses an ethereal appeal as The Visitor, but this sci-fi series is too spacey for its own good, marrying a portentous concept to a slack pace.

It's an intriguing concept, but whether it can be sustained from week to week remains to be seen.

The Visitor is visually spectacular and the abbreviated pilot had a great soundtrack. Corbett... infuses the pilot with blank mystery.

Chris Corbett is the alien in this cross between "Phenomenon" and "The Fugitive." Considerable promise.

Credit goes less to the Fugitive-meets-My Favorite Martian scenario than to Corbett's low-key charm.

July 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The hour holds one's attention, and Corbett brings to his role just the right degree of cheering eeriness.

A brash but effective attempt to meld Angel and The X-Files.
