Maybe it take a while for the evolution process to happen and it's too much effort for the greys to control everyone themselves until it does. Therefore, they use previously harnessed species that are already "evolved" to do the mind control thing until the transformation fully takes place.
Heck, I don't know.
I can make sh** up on the spot just as easily as the writers. Having it be good takes a few more minutes.
BTW: regarding the camera: I can get film in any grocery or drug store. Frankly, I could steal the processing chemicals from there if I needed them. The machines are electronic, so they'd be DOA, but you could use them in manual developing trays. I'm not sure why everyone thinks film doesn't exist anymore. People still buy it and it lasts for at least 5 years - longer if you don't care about how the colors look. In fact, Fuji film ages to a nice warm tone before the greens drop out. In fact, I know a lot of pros that used to use expired Fuji Velvia specifically because they liked the look.
If you want easy, you can still buy bulk rolls of T-Max 400, which is very easy to use black and white film. Processing is easy, too. Unlike with color, you can use a safe light when printing, as well. Color needs complete darkness or an enclosed processing machine.
Also, my Pentax K-1000 is a fully manual 35MM camera (no power zoom, no autofocus, no electronic shutter or motor winder). There's a button cell battery, but only for the internal light meter and I've been shooting long enough not to need it. Since all it makes is a quiet "click" in decent lighting, it means it's great when you want to be stealthy with it.
