When television shows and movies depict humanoid aliens, I feel the need to point to the extremophiles and deep-sea life (that we even know about!) on this very planet.

Most of the really weird-ass deep-sea creatures you see exist at a depth that would crush a human body. Probably not going to run into an anglerfish on a scuba dive.
