A town of Joe Schmo's touch the heart of Hollywood
1 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

What if an American entertainment living legend came to your small town with a large camera crew to make a movie, what would you and your fellow town-folk do? And what will you and your friends do once you learn that the whole production is fake?

SPIKE TV continues their Joe Schmo fake reality show tradition with INVASION IOWA. Yes, a whole town filled with unknowing Schmo's! Unlike the Schmo shows, INVASION uses a world famous TV legend and the town-folk act with much more respectful restraint than they otherwise might.

Ironically, the most interesting and most candid moments come when the camera captures the reactions of the Hollywood actors. The last hour has much raw emotion pouring from William Shatner and his fellow actors. Watching as the town folks receive their "thank you" gifts was by far the highlight of the series.
