Trivia:
The true form of the Invaders was never completely revealed, although there is a hint of it in episode 2.7, "The Spores". Their human forms were unstable and had to be "regenerated" periodically, or else they would die.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: 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...

The Quintessential Sci-Fi TV show, 18 October 2006
Author: nikond70-1 from Canada

Quinn Martin had a great formula for TV series in the 60s and 70s. Recall "The Fugitive", "The FBI", "The Streets of San Francisco" The Invaders can emphatically be placed into the the category of a great and enduring science fiction television weekly show. At 12 years old when the pilot "Beachhead" aired, the scenes, opening credits and music left an indelible mark on my imagination. Roy Thinnes was a great fit for the lead; he had the chiseled bold look and the seriousness of demeanor that was required for the part. The show's producers managed to keep the show frightening, reasonably intact and progressive for a simple theme (aliens invading earth to make it their world), even with limited special effects available in the time. Now, some 40 years later, when I see a 1967 Ford Galaxie 500...flashback...again...

I hope someone from Paramount stumbles across this an answers the prayer of many TV sci-fi enthusiasts and gets this series released soon. When I see some of the titles that have been released to date, and not this one....one can't help but wonder - "just what are they thinking?"
