He wrestles with the moral dilemma of his secret mission, while also dealing with the mayor's young son, who can see his true appearance.[8]

Fish-out-of-water stories are fantastic. They're an entertainment staple. It's charming watching outsiders fit into our earthly monotony. It works on an earthly level, too, with foreigners acclimating to new locations, but it's never as good as the alien experience.

He has the best time letting loose, but his first hangover leaves him believing that humanity tolerates alcohol in a way that aliens can't. Nope, we're just that stupid, Harry, that experiencing it once teaches us absolutely nothing!

Why would she be interested in Max? How can she use a child in a situation that the parents aren't even aware of, even if Max is, but Lisa doesn't know that? In other words, Lisa has no idea Max knows the alien, and the same goes for his parents. She's a strange bird, and that storyline remains unappealing, at best.

Dan: What are you doing hanging with that thing?Asta: Do you know what that thing is?Dan: Well, it's violating a whole bunch of health codes. I know that for sure!Asta: Can you just say it, so there's no confusion?Dan: Why's there an alien in my freezer, Asta?

He also proved his love for her when his first thought at seeing a giant alien in his freezer wasn't whether she was OK. It seems Dan knows that Asta will always be OK, but he draws the line at the unsavory types she hangs out with.

Resident Alien Season 2 is certainly a standout release. Alan Tudyk returns as Harry the Alien. After realizing that young Max was still on his ship when he went out to detonate the human-killing bomb and return home, Harry knew he had to return to Earth. The second season picks up with Harry back on Earth and in more trouble, especially with his own kind.

RESIDENT ALIEN is a live-action series based on the graphic Dark Horse Comics novel by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse, adapted for television by Chris Sheridan. The show has its first-season finale on Syfy, Wednesday, March 31; it has been renewed for a second season.

While the teaser (opens in new tab) is a bit brief at just 20 seconds, Syfy has seen fit to precede it with an amusing recap of the first season and a behind-the-scenes featurette from the second season, which is expected to premiere in early 2022.

The alien, whose actual name is pronounced (opens in new tab) N'a [click] ka-tay-ahla-Oooayy, is on a mission to destroy every human on Earth. However, he must attempt to blend in with the other residents of a small Colorado town in order to avoid detection while he searches for vital components of his spaceship that are now buried in snow on the neighboring mountains.

As he gets to know the small town's residents, Harry learns about humanity and begins to have doubts about his mission. There are some amazing characters, each with their own developing stories, including Asta Twelvetrees (Sara Tomko), D'Arcy Bloom (Alice Wetterlund) and Sheriff Mike Thompson (Corey Reynolds).

However, one young boy, Max Hawthorne (Judah Prehn), is unlike the rest of the townsfolk: He possesses a rare gene that allows him to see Harry in his natural alien state. But naturally, no one believes him.

Harry struggles with even the most basic of human customs, and, at first, there's a little too much of Tudyk gurning and making strange "alien" faces. But the show finds its footing an episode or two into the first season, and Tudyk begins to deliver arguably his finest and funniest performance. The dark, often-adult humor of the show becomes extremely entertaining.

By the end of the first season, Harry is reluctantly now friends with Max and another young human, Sahar (Gracelyn Awad Rinke). He has rebuilt his ship and is being hotly pursued by the US military and General McCallister in particular, played by none other than Linda Hamilton in a great cameo role. There's a good Season 1 recap here (opens in new tab).

Our resident alien, Harry, dug himself a pretty big hole with Asta when he forcibly removed her memories without her consent. Unlike other times they have had disagreements, this one looks to have really fractured the relationship.

You can see it throughout the season, like in Episode 4 when Harry's assistant and friend Asta brings him to the Ute reservation to help her grandmother, and the way Native customs are incorporated into everyday life.

Independent personal services are personal services performed by an independent nonresident alien (NRA) contractor. This also includes honorarium paid by colleges and universities to visiting teachers, lecturers, and researchers. In general the 30% tax will be withheld from the payment, unless it is exempted by a tax treaty. Refer to Tax Treaties Table provided to view a list of countries with which the United States has a tax treaty in which NRA independent contractors may be able to exclude some or all of their income under the terms of a tax treaty entered into between the United States and their home country.

The IRS routinely applies the accountable plan rules to U.S. citizen and U.S. resident independent alien independent contractors as well as payments made to or on behalf of NRA independent contractors. Seattle University will not include all travel and living expense reimbursement amounts in the NRA's gross income. These payments are not reportable to the IRS and are not subject to NRA withholding if the payments are made under an accountable plan as described in section 1.62-2 of the regulations.

For non-resident aliens admitted into the U.S. on a B-1/B-2 visa (visitor for business / visitor for pleasure) or through WB / WT visa waiver program (visa waiver for business / pleasure), he/she should attach a signed, supplementary statement to indicate compliance with the 9/5/6 B honorarium rule, which specifies that he/she is receiving payment for a legitimate university purpose, that the activity engaged in is not more than 9 days, and that the non-resident alien has not received payments from more than five other such institutions in the past six months. 041b061a72
