Beware of aliens bearing gifts.
The Visitors come to Earth to sell cures and gadgets to selected nations. It seems a deal too good to be true, so many suspect it is.
Snake Oil is a different take on 'humanity meets aliens' with plenty of scifi jokes, online banter and a spot-on Daily Show scene. It is a fun, accurate insight into how the human race could behave when alien salesmen stop by.
