BOOB TUBE AWARENESS WEEK: [DAY 2]
PROGRAM: THE PHOENIX.
INFO: During an archaeological expedition in Peru, a golden sarcophagus that bears the eal of a Phoenix (the ancient symbol of earth) is discovered. In Los Angeles, the sarcophagus is opened and an extraterrestrial being, an ancient astronaut named 'Bennu of the Golden Light', is awakened-before his time. Possessing extraordinary powers, which he derives from the sun, and unsure of his assignment on Earth, Bennu escapes from his captors and begins a search to find Mira, his partner from the planet El DeBrande. Mira, it is learned, is the woman who knows Bennu's earthly mission, which is to EFFECT THE EARTH'S FUTURE. Note: the pilot episode can be viewed in full here.
