    Synopsis


    The third and final season of My Favorite Martian found the series switching from black-and-white to color, and also making a few adjustments in its format. The basic premise remains the same: a misplaced martian (Ray Walston) has crash-landed on Earth and has moved in with young newspaper reporter Tim O'Hara (Bill Bixby). While the martian endeavors to repair his damaged spaceship, Tim protects the visitor from the authorities by passing him off as his "Uncle Martin." This charade is swallowed hook, line, and sinker by Tim's landlady Mrs. Lorelei Brown (Pamela Britton), who has a bit of a crush on Uncle Martin. Lorelei's detective ex-boyfriend Bill Brennan (Alan Hewitt) can't help but notice that strange and magical things happen whenever Martin is around, thus arousing Brennan's suspicions big time. During season three, Brennan would continually try to alert his police chief boss Roy Engle to Martin's curious behavior, only to be repeatedly made a fool of by the clever and resourceful extraterrestial. What is radically different about the third season is that Uncle Martin has begun transporting himself and Tim through various historical periods, by means of a time machine of his own invention. In the two-part season opener, Martin and Tim are hurtled back to the Old West, where they meet Bill Brennan's grandfather (also played by Alan Hewitt) and embark upon a search for gold, an ore needed for Martin's crippled space vehicle. In later episodes, the two time travelers land in Hollywood during the silent movie era, attempt to solve one of history's most baffling jewel robberies, have a dangerously close encounter with Frank and Jesse James, bring a nonplussed Leonardo Da Vinci back to the 20th century, and, in the series' final episode, inadvertently talk the Indians out of selling Manhattan Island to Peter Minuit, thereby doing considerable damage to the time-space continuum! ~ Hal Erickson

      My Favorite Martian first season. The nostalgia was great. Still funny. The main actors was great in their lives. And the show. It's comedy more than the Science fiction. You can tell the actors were buddies. Hope fans see this again?
