This has been bugging me for some time now, and I can't find anything on it.

It's a movie I remember watching as a kid with my father and I only remember bits of the movie, just images mostly.

It involves:

  • A female telepathic alien that crash lands on earth.
  • She finds a local human detective/cop (?) and teams up with him to kill some big bug-like aliens.
  • The two protagonists, the female alien and the cop, are walking up some stairs after a meeting. She's in front and as she climbs the stairs he looks at her butt. She immediately turns around and says something to the effect of "that's gross".

I hope this is enough for someone to help me identify the movie. Thank you in advance!

I suggest Something is Out There.

This 1988 (right time frame?) mini-series spawned a very brief TV series, so finding that specific scene would be tough, but here is a link to the intro:

It has:

  1. Bug-like aliens
  2. Telepathic female alien
  3. Said female alien is played by Maryam D'abo, so a male checking out her posterior is completely plausible.
  • That's it! I had forgotten it was a tv series, but the intro has the scene I remembered! Good thin I posted, I was wrecking my brain trying to think of the name. Now I can go back and watch it again, thank you! – Edward Dec 7 '15 at 17:45
