From this moment he will be trying to persuade a skeptical world that the invasion of our planet is going on, that the nightmare has begun... Written by Luis Carvacho <lcarvach@lascar.puc.cl>

Trivia

Some Invaders could be identified by what David Vincent calls a "deformed fourth finger". Technically, the finger is not deformed, but immobile, always sticking out. There are hints dropped from the beginning that the aliens are correcting this problem so that not all invaders have it. Toward the end of the second year they seem to have eliminated the defect altogether. See more »

Goofs

Often, when the UFO is on the ground, no shadow is visible for certain sections of the ship, yet others cast a shadow, indicating part of the ship was already filmed and was blue-screened in later. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: The Invaders: alien beings from a dying planet. Their destination: the Earth. Their purpose: to make it *their* world. David Vincent has seen them. For him, it began one lost night on a lonely country road, looking for a shortcut that he never found. It began with a closed deserted diner, and a man too long without sleep to continue his journey. It began with the landing of a craft from another galaxy. Now, David Vincent knows that the Invaders are here, that they have taken ...

Edge of the 60's
9 August 2001 | by (Norman, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

For me this show ranks as one of the 10 best TV shows ever made. It resonates with me even today, and I think Roy Thinnes' performances, especially in the first season, are brilliant in their subtlety. I guess what really hits me about this show is how you have a man, David Vincent, who was living in a very conventional 60's worldview--until the night he makes one wrong turn and ends up having his safe, comfortable little existence turned upside down. Somehow I see a parallel between David Vincent and the title character of another top ten TV show - THE PRISONER. Both Number Six and David Vincent have been dragged into worlds of great excitement and adventure - but both are also modern equivalents of Sisyphus, forever doomed to struggle against overwhelming opposition. Both Number Six and David Vincent are actually tragic characters. The trap of most TV shows

  • that the status quo must be maintained from episode to episode to keep


the series going - proves in this case to be a great asset to the nightmarish quality of the premise. Also, you never truly see who the aliens "are", any more than you find out who's running the Village.

Watch this show along with THE PRISONER. You'll be amazed at how much is going on within the "confines" of conventional TV drama.
