I watched a programme on this and basically yes all life will look pretty much the same if you think about it Water is water everywhere in the universe so logically Life will also be similar.

The program explained that intelligent life would probably look human it may be they will look as different as asia does to Europe etc rather than have tentacles and green skin.

That's really fun to think about. It's basically impossible for us to consider life forms based on something other than carbon. Also, I think it's human nature to project ourselves onto anything we encounter. Now if only we could predict their temperament when they get here....

“If alien life visits us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for Native Americans.”
