* Mrs. Everly and Ned escape custody at the end of "Alien Hunter", but we never see them again for the rest of the series. Why didn't they go after the Solomons again?

* In one episode, they have only just figured out that people have different races and that there are sometimes tensions between different factions. Dick hears about black pride. Trying to understand this, Dick naturally assumes he should have "white pride"...which doesn't go well, because he doesn't understand that "white pride" rallies are threatening and hateful. At the end of the episode, he says something about them burning a lower case t. How does a group of aliens sent to study human civilization not know what a cross is, and by extension not know much to anything about religion? Seems like that would be a huge part of trying to understand what motivates humans.

** When Dick confesses to "[[Creator/JohnCleese Liam Neesom]]" that he's also an alien, Liam asks him to open his mouth. Dick does, and Liam takes a look and says something to the effect of, "Well, so you are." This hints that their bodies may still be a teensy bit alien.

** She wakes in an unfamiliar place next to a car she's never seen before and a minor head injury. She would probably think she's been attacked and suffered some minor brain damage. How's that for fridge horror?

* All the aliens have varying complex layers of neurosis and can be considered as having personality and cognitive disorders. Dick probably existed somewhere on the Autistic spectrum, with a secondary diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Sally had Adult ADD and a histrionic personality disorder. She also had anger management problems relating to her nature as a warrior, and initially a fear of intimacy, though she got over that. Harry was, like Dick, on the Spectrum. Tommy was the most "neurotypical" of the group, but he clearly suffered from a sense of lost dignity for having been reduced to a teenager. In the early episodes he was coping with loss.

He is however ReallySevenHundredYearsOld and suffers from some memory loss, explaining why certain background research on Earth was vitally lacking.
