If you didn’t catch the first season of Resident Alien, with Firefly‘s Alan Tudyk as the titular character, then you really missed out on something cool.

It’s the tale of an alien that’s crash-landed on Earth and goes about passing as a smalltown human doctor while preparing to complete his mission – to destroy life on Earth.

If that premise isn’t enough to convince you, Firefly big guy Nathan Fillion gives voice to a telepathic octopus…

Anyway, the second season of Resident Alien is almost upon us, set to commence airing in the US from January 26. Here’s a preview:
