Every single series has been repeated on CITV (on ITV1) between 2000 to March 2006. From 11th March 2006 the show has been repeated on the CITV Channel every day of the week at 5pm (apart from some occasions).
But My Parents Are Aliens recently has been repeated on most weekends on CITV (ITV1) and on Sky, Nickelodeon at different times.
When Lucy wins tickets to see Blink 182 in a competition, Josh is desperate to take them off her hands - after all, he's a huge fan of the band, and Lucy's such a geek she's never even heard of Blink 182. Lucy agrees to give the tickets to Josh, but on one condition: Josh has to perform a truly unselfish deed in order to qualify for the tickets. Of course it's a terrible struggle for the scam-meister, but Josh learns a whole lot about himself in the process.
Josh injures himself during sports, so Brian attempts to fix him with a home-made machine. However, the machine instead makes Josh a chess champion and a maths prodigy by mistake, making Lucy feel threatened as she is outplayed in chess.
Josh wants an all-night-game-a-thon, so he tries to make the rest of the family go on a holiday. However, Mel wants some privacy [for once] and the family will not give it to her.
Lucy and Wendy are on the verge of falling out, as Wendy is upset that Lucy never invites her to her house. They arrange a sleepover, and Sophie and Brian must act as normal as possible. Wendy says best friends tell each other all their secrets, so Lucy decides she must tell her that Brian and Sophie are aliens, but Wendy thinks that all parents are from planet Parent. Wendy then says she wants to come again next week and Josh gets a pool table.
Lucy is selected to represent the school in a Science Tournament where she has to build a rocket with maximum propulsion - which proves to be too difficult a task for her, so Sophie offers to help. Brian enters one of Mel's photograph's in an art contest. Josh tries to bribe Scott Taylor into letting him go to a football game and almost loses Frankie and Pete as friends.
Mel goes to school in trousers, as she feels the school rule that girls must wear skirts is sexist. Lucy looks after the school hamster which Josh promptly loses by trying to make some money with it. When looking at video tapes to try to find the hamster Mel realizes she has very good looking legs, so ignores her principles and wears a very small skirt (as usual).
Lucy manages to get her way in the house, organizing chess nights and debates. Due to this, Josh gets the idea to run for school council. He claims if appointed, he would get all students entry to the prefect's room, much to the anger of Mel. Mel has a secret weapon - if he continues in his plan, she will blackmail him with a karaoke tape of him singing along to Britney Spears. But then when she puts it on in the school Josh starts to sing and everyone gets dancing so Mel gets annoyed and leaves with a sulk.
Lucy's birthday is arriving, and she wants a party. While she thinks no-one is interested, the family is planning a secret party. When Sophie becomes pregnant, Josh is elected to give Brian 'The Talk' on the facts of life, with help from a book from the school library. However, Brian later becomes pregnant as well.
Mel asks Scott Taylor to the school Christmas disco. Lucy is cast as Mary in the Nativity play, a part Wendy wants. Josh fills Brian and Sophie in about Christmas. Lucy gives Wendy the part of Mary in the play, but Wendy becomes extremely demanding. Mel gets cold feet and won't go to the disco, so Brian morphs into her and goes in her place. Mel finds out and rushes to the disco, only to find Brian-Mel kissing Scott. Mel attempts to repair the damage caused by Brian, only to find out some things about herself. The school Nativity play becomes a strain on Lucy and Wendy's friendship. Josh has nightmares and is visited by ghosts.
On the last Episode you will see Barbara Durkin as Sophie... Also Jennifer Metcalfe stars in this episode
Mel gets a job offer as an assistant to a fashion photographer. However, her audition takes place during school, so she goes to the audition whilst Sophie (who is not a very gifted morpher) morphs into Mel and goes to school. Unfortunately, she goes around kissing everyone, including Mrs Hardman, and is referred to a child psychologist. Sophie panics when seeing the psychologist, and Mel arrives to take over. However, Sophie cannot morph back to her original human form, and decides to keep another look, thus introducing Carla Mendonça into the role of Sophie.
Brian and Sophie become hooked on a trading card game, and will go to any lengths to obtain more cards. They end up stealing and selling the school laptop. They then discover there is a rare card (Madonna) that they need to find. They find the card, but realise they have wasted their time and money. They feel very silly.
Lucy discovers she has a talent for judo, and Brian thinks the only way to keep her as his friend is to tag along. Sophie then decides she wants to be Trent's friend. However, she later brings a live duck into the house to cook. Trent gets upset when he sees this and asks her what's going on. Mel tells him that Sophie is making a statement about vegetarianism, so he thinks they are vegetarians. Meanwhile, Lucy gets ready to go to Paris for a judo competition.
Brian and Sophie are not technically married, so Lucy arranges a wedding to bring the family closer together, but her grand ideas are nothing compared to Sophie's. Brian learns it is hard to choose a best man. When Mel gets angry about the wedding, they decide not to have a proper wedding, but a friendship ceremony instead.
Josh fails a test, and tells Brian and Sophie that it is the teacher's fault for not teaching him well enough. He has to do a re-sit which, if he fails, could see him held back a year and end up in Lucy's class, so Brian home-tutors Josh. Unfortunately, he turns out to be an extremely strict teacher. In the end, Josh believes he's going to fail, so he gets Brian to morph into him and take the test.
When Lucy wants Brian's help with her magic act, his ambitions go far beyond being her assistant. Mel runs in the school's sponsored FunRun with Andy the freak in a pantomime horse costume.
An alarm sounds in the household - signaling that there is a Valux rescue ship nearby. Brian and Sophie are faced with a difficult decision: go home, or stay with the children. The children are horrified that they might be abandoned again and recall (in flashback) the day they were fostered by a very different-looking Brian and Sophie. Lucy was desperate for a family, Josh was still looking for fringe benefits and Mel was desperate to avoid disappointment. Can Brian and Sophie be persuaded to keep their family together?
Continuity error: the events at the children's home presented here are completely different to the story told in Thanks for All the Earthworm Custard.
On Hallowe'en, Josh has a plan to run a tour of the school, with Frankie and Pete helping to spook the students.
Brian and Sophie adopt a new child: Howie. Howie turns out to be a safety freak, much to the exasperation of Mel, Josh and Lucy. Seeing their reaction, Howie runs away... and then the children's social worker comes to the house for Brian and Sophie's progress report. Howie irritated many fans.
To celebrate their "phone-iversary" Josh convinces Sophie and Brian to buy him a new mobile phone. Sophie also gives a mobile phone to Brian, however the phone wipes his mind of all his alien memories. Meanwhile, Josh believes his mathematics teacher has fallen for him. Josh, Lucy and Wendy all discover love through texting. NOTE: Introduction of the laugh track.
On Father's Day, Sophie gets upset that she has never received any Mother's Day gifts. Brian sets out to prove he is the World's Best Dad. Josh tries to gain the new video game "Gnomes Of Vengeance" from the new girl, Poppy Manning, but she will only give games to girls. Josh asks Lucy to get the game from Poppy for him. Lucy agrees on one condition - that Josh pays her £54.60. Mel is upset when Brian thinks she is a boy. The episode concludes with Sophie attempting to be more masculine by working out and Brian attempting to become more feminine by growing breasts.
Continued from the previous episode. Brian and Sophie's attempts to embrace the opposite gender become more and more extreme. Brian tries to be a better father by becoming more sensitive, while Sophie gets in touch with her masculine side. Josh still attempts to get the video game from Poppy.
When Lucy gets in trouble with one of her teachers for apparently copying homework, Brian and Sophie discover the power of punishment. Poppy writes an article in the school magazine criticising Josh. Mel accidentally kills the school budgie and Josh writes this in his own school magazine. To get revenge, Mel gets Brian to morph into Josh and take naked pictures of himself to give to Poppy to print in her magazine.
Today Mel is fed up with Lucy's controlling behavior and decides to move out of their bedroom and into the attic. Sophie sees this as the perfect opportunity to step in as Lucy's new sister. Lucy is incensed, but when Sophie and Wendy abandon her too, she begins to wonder whether she might be in the wrong after all. Josh is desperate to scam Frankie's signed United football shirt from him, and Brian agrees to morph into Mel as part of a cunning plan. But Josh is about to get a taste of his own medicine for once.
This week Brian feels rejected when Sophie chooses to watch repeats of Geoff Jefferson, Criminal Prosecutor, on cable TV, instead of taking part in his indoor Olympic Games. Josh also has grievances with Sophie's television hogging - the wrestling team have paid him in advance for tapes of special shows. This is not true.
Brian has a new pet: Fluffy the goldfish, but when she's fed on a diet of fried egg, bacon and beans, the unfortunate Fluffy soon floats off to the big fish tank in the sky, leaving Brian devastated. He then holds a funeral for his beloved Fluffy, which goes well. Josh attempts a challenge at the diner: eating 50 courses. He asks Brian to morph into him, and eat 48 of the courses. The first course is fish fingers, devastating Brian. He quits, leaving Josh to eat all the food. Mel later takes out insurance with dozens of spare goldfish, which she stores in the bathroom, and Brian thinks that the new fish is Fluffy back from the dead.
Josh is confident that his "treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen" tactics will eventually win the heart of his school friend Tanya. Sophie decides that humans tell lies all the time, making her highly suspicious of everything her family says. Mel persuades Trent to let her stand in for him as school magazine agony aunt, but can she really summon up the sensitivity to do it? In a desperate bid to prove to Josh that he can lie convincingly, Brian tells Pete that Tanya fancies him. But when Pete and Tania arrange a date, Brian has some quick thinking to do before Josh's heart is broken. Brian discovers that lying can cause a lot of trouble, while Mel finds out that telling the truth can, too.
When Lucy insists that there's no such thing as luck (it's all just a question of mathematical probability), Brian is determined to prove her wrong. He purchases a pair of Josh's 'lucky' underpants and is delighted to immediately win a free pen and a pound.
Josh is woken by a trumpet-playing Brian and is offered tiddlywinks for breakfast. His sisters may be technically human but they still can't behave like normal people. Why can't his family just be different in every way? A bump on the head makes Josh's wish come true, throwing him into a world of complete opposites. Lucy is stupid, Mel cares about what she looks likes and fancies Frankie, Sophie doesn't even try to be a good mum, Pete is short and fancies Mel and Frankie is tall doesn't like mel but all of the other girls fancy him. This leaves a whole world of confusion and he wishes that he could have been fostered by someone else. Amusing quotes: (Brian)"I'm guessing someone needs a hug." "Call me Vince." "And I'd just like to say, I dig your style" "Perhaps, but its even bigger of me." Post Scriptum: these quotes may be inaccurate due to loss of memory.
Lucy and Wendy have an argument that might end their friendship for ever. Josh has laryngitis, but despite Sophie's best efforts to nurse him back to health, he quickly loses patience with her bedside manner. Sophie finds that being ignored can make you feel like you don't exist at all. Brian is jealous that Trent has given Mel a music festival ticket and morphs into 'Spam' - a hip and trendy girl that will catch Trent's eye. His plan works, but Mel is devastated. Can Josh and Sophie persuade Brian to make amends before Mel's heart is broken and Sophie turns invisible from a lack of attention? What can he do about it. Wendy moves to Birmingham for a few months. This episode is highly amusing and features Brian heaving out a moan of woe.
Brian is desperate to join Lucy at the Brownies, but she refuses for obvious reasons. Undeterred, Brian forms his own association - The Brianies - with its own code of conduct.
Mel has left for Canada and Brian is suffering in her absence, so takes matters into his own hands by getting a 'new Mel' from the children's home, while Lucy is enjoying having a room to herself, which soon changes.
Josh is using Sophie in his latest scam by getting her to morph into pets for his classmates for money. Brian is bored without Sophie so decides to become a fashion designer. However, his ideas are not quite to everyone's taste.
Harry gets angry with Sophie for not providing for her properly, even though she is doing the best she can. This gives Sophie the idea of opening a hotel, so that she can at least get paid for running around after people. Brian makes the weather inside the house sunny so that he can be happy, but all doesn't quite go to plan.
It's Hallowe'en. Brian tells a spooky story in an attempt to scare the rest of the family but, when the others remain unshaken, Josh decides to tell a Halloween tale of his own. Sophie cannot understand how it can be fun to be scared.
After nearly choking on a gobstopper, Brian decides to learn some first aid in order to keep the family safe. After injuring the school nurse, he morphs into the replacement and Mr Whiteside falls in love with him. Josh meets a girl but when he realizes that she is a psycho, pretends to be going out with Pete until he finds out that she is rich. Lucy tells the girls in her class that she wants to get her nose pierced making her instantly popular.
After worrying that he will not be remembered when he dies, Brian goes on a quest to find the Holy Grail with CJ. Josh participates in work experience at the diner. Wendy and Lucy start a company producing potato powered clocks, and Sophie helps make them, however, she is told off by Lucy for giving them all away free. Sophie then founds "Sophiecom International" which sells useless coconut toys, yet these are a hit. Her business is about to go international until Lucy discovers her secret.
When Harry signs up for a school boxing tournament, Brian gets bullied by a boy who claims to be related to the police chief, and when Sophie learns that to be connected (in family relation) to a famous person means you get a higher status.
When Harry cooks Brian and Sophie a romantic meal to help them patch up their differences after an argument, the aliens quickly go to the other extreme and become totally wrapped up in their passion for one another, (much to the children's embarrassment). However, when Josh tries to cool their ardour, Brian becomes convinced that he's trying to steal Sophie's heart. Meanwhile Lucy is up for a prize at school.
Lucy is due for a vaccination at school and it becomes evident that uncharacteristic though it may be for her, she is dead scared. Sophie gets into photography and pursues all the kids around the house in attempt to get some candid shots. But when she takes it upon herself to capture Lucy's fear as she waits for her injection at school, she unwittingly motivates the kids to turn the tables on her. Brian, fed up of always being criticized for his behavior, decides he is only going to do as he is told and adopts an attitude of total subservience. But he can't anticipate how complicated it can get when he tries to obey orders from one person, especially when that person is Josh
.cjs luck cj as good luck and harry is the bast in the school.
Josh needs and alibi from Harry to cover himself from some misdemeanor, but Harry of course refuses. Trent advises him he might have more success if he broke a habit of a lifetime and tried being nice to her. He gives it his best shot-but to no avail. Sophie causes Lucy yet more embarrassment-this time at the swimming baths where she makes a fool of herself sinking instead of swimming. Sophie takes herself off to the river to practice and morphs a spectacular tail but fails to morph back owing to the pollution of the water. As a result the family have to cope with a new Sophie in mermaid mode. And she has a spectacular effect-not least on Andy The Freak. Fed up with losing to CJ from Hide-And-Seek, Brian changes the geography of the house and causes chaos for the whole family

N.B: This episode has continuity errors. It states that Brian and Sophie took the image of the Barker children's parents. However, in the episode, Aliens Go Home (Episode 8 of Series 3), a flashback shows Brian taking the image of the, later stated, "Uncle Brian", but from a fashion magazine. Another error is that Barbara Durkin was not the actress who played Sophie in the flashback episode. The reasons for these errors have not been confirmed.
