They clearly had not been reading the National Register!

Had they realized such publications held the truth about aliens and such, they would have been subscribers!  And been familiar with the Hulk...

I think the SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN is the exception -- while it's underpinnings are definitely sci-fi (human enhancement with technology) it's day-to-day was more grounded in the spy/espionage genre.  It is remarkable how they were able to incorporate aliens and Bigfoot without missing a beat though.

It's an interesting comparison to early Marvel comics where aliens pretty much were appearing right off the bat but somehow it doesn't seem to derail the groundedness of the NYC depicted in those comics.

More an homage to "The Haunting" as it was pre-"Poltergeist" and Julie Harris had just become a regular.  It was also a way to mend some cracks in Valene and Lilimae's (Harris) relationship while having fun with it.  Really out-of-place episode but one that featured all the great women characters,
