ancient astronauts

The almost inevitable sci-fi/archeology/new age TV series, albeit shortlived, inspired by the blockbusting 70s success of Erich Von Daniken's Chariot Of The Gods (the book that popularized the idea that long ago spacemen came from a galaxy far away and gave us technologies which made them revered as gods).

A being from another world, left behind in a sarcophagus in a Peruvian tomb 1000 years ago and frozen in time with a gift for humankind, but he has woken too early and doesn't know his mission.

His superior intelligence allows him stay one step ahead of those who would try to control him (still that 60s hangover of freedom from the man) and, while he's at it, also be a total king of The Phoenix videogame in the local arcade and win free games for all the kids.

He depends on the sun for his survival (aliens love California), which fires up his magic amulet (you can find yours on eBay) while he searches for his female alien partner so he can discover his ultimate role on Earth.
