20 Facts About Our Favorite Movie And TV Aliens

Who is better and more interesting than humans? Aliens, that’s who. At least the aliens we made up with our human brains. Actual aliens could be less interesting, or have such different intellect or organs, or whatever that we possibly could never relate to them. I mean, you might love your plants, but you don’t play games or go on adventures with them, right? 

But enough sidebar stuff. The aliens we know and love from movies and TV are fun, scary, fun and scary, or just plain interesting. It’s fun to relearn human culture through their eyes, explore different ideas via their perspective, or just enjoy the visuals of them being 90% human but have tentacles for teeth. Whether it’s a fish-out-water story, working on a space crew, or just being a fun character to chuck at an otherwise normal show, aliens are cool. Full stop.

Here are some of our favorite aliens that hit your TV or movie screens.
