This was a milestone series in my opinion - the acting was usually above average. Roy Thinnes was excellent - the way he shows his frustration when explaining the aliens is very good. Roy was cast perfectly for this series. I recently was able to buy all the episodes on DVD - just watched "Dark Outpost" - This is one of the best episodes as well as the first one.
If I remember rightly, the whole series doesn't end by driving the invaders off the Earth, when I get to that DVD I'll see of course
Theme music excellent too (Dominic Frontiere I think)
WELL DONE ROY!!
