Will the alien grow to like humanity, or will his disguise be uncovered before he has time to?

There’s been plenty of praise already piled on this delightfully dark and funny adaptation of the Dark Horse comics starring Alan Tudykhere, here, and here—and every episode since its launch has been a scream. And the cast seems to be having as much fun making the show as we are watching it.

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, above, Tudyk, Alice Wetterlund, who plays his on-screen semi-love interest D’Arcy, and Corey Reynolds, who plays the town’s uncomfortably self-nicknamed sheriff, share how filming is going — and why face-licking isn’t really that much of a dealbreaker on set.
