At the beginning of the episode, a commercial for New Menu foodstuffs, in which a Newcomer woman serves her young son Max a helping of uncooked beef, liver and chicken, is playing on television. This was a real commercial designed to promote Alien Nation
(1989) which aired on Fox prior to the series' premiere on September 18, 1989. This is evidenced by the fact that "© 1989 Fox Broadcasting Co." appears on the bottom of the screen as the commercial ends. The promo initially obscured the Newcomers' alien status by not showing the woman's face and having her son Max wear a rain jacket hood. Furthermore, the prominent appearance of a cat was meant to suggest that the woman was in fact going to serve the uncooked meat to her pet rather than her son. The promo was later shown again in Alien Nation: Dark Horizon
(1994). See more
