As My Favorite Martian enters its second season, young newspaper reporter Tim O'Hara (Bill Bixby) has become quite accustomed to having a martian as his house guest. He has also come to take for granted the fact that his "Uncle Martin" (Ray Walston) has a super-genius I.Q., is able to travel through time and space by means of teleportation, can move objects through the air by simply pointing his finger, and can turn invisible at the drop of a hat (or in his case, the raising of an antenna). As for Uncle Martin, he regards Tim as a good friend and excellent company, but he is still rather impatient with his forced stay on the primitive planet Earth, and continues to try to repair his damaged spaceship, which is kept hidden in Tim's garage. Meanwhile, Tim's landlady Mrs. Lorelei Brown (Pamela Britton) has developed something of a crush on Uncle Martin, never suspecting that her tenant is from another planet. Indeed, no one suspects that there is something amiss about Uncle Martin except for a new character introduced in season two, Mrs. Brown's erstwhile boyfriend Detective Bill Brennan (Alan Hewitt). Like Gladys Kravitz on Bewitched, Brennan suspects that Uncle Martin isn't quite who he claims to be, and goes to great lengths to uncover his secret -- and, like Gladys Kravitz, Brennan is invariably foiled and humiliated by the resourceful extraterrestrial. After climbing to tenth place in the ratings during its first season, My Favorite Martian didn't even crack the Top 30 during season two, which may explain why the producers altered the format a bit for its third season, and also hyped its audience appeal by switching from black-and-white to color. ~ Hal Erickson
