The Alien Observer is eclectic commentary about life among humans — from a man who feels that this world couldn’t possibly be his home. David McElroy is a writer and photographer who has worked in journalism, political consulting, real estate and education. He also made one award-winning short film about 15 years ago and still wants to make additional films. He lives alone in Birmingham, Ala., with one dog and three cats — and is still looking for a beautiful and brilliant woman to have a family with.
Episode 1 — People are angrily screaming with each other right now about what ought to be done about how much public activity to allow. Some people demand that everything be opened up as before. Others demand that most things remain closed — and most people remain at home — for many more months. Everybody seems convinced that he has the right answer. But the questions which a lot of people aren’t really addressing are which experts ought to be trusted and whether anybody has the right to force everyone else to obey his particular expert.
Introduction — I don’t fit into the warring political and social teams that are fighting to take control of this country. I see the world entirely differently than they do. This show is my attempt to show a different way of looking at the world — and to bridge the gap between people who hate each other and badly misunderstand one another.
