Storyline

Architect David Vincent, too long without sleep, takes a side road in search of coffee. But Bud's Diner is closed and so Vincent does the only other thing he can: settles in for a nap. An hour later, at 5:00am, a ruddy glow awakens him. He sees the very unexpected: a space vessel landing nearby! Vincent races off to summon the authorities, but when he returns the dilapidated sign reads "Kelly's Diner" and the ship - if that's what it was - is nowhere around. The authorities dismiss his story by Vincent believes in what he saw, and sets out to find proof. Written by CommanderBalok

Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Narration] How does a nightmare end? Not here, in the forgotten town of Kinney. Perhaps in Bakersfield. Perhaps in some undiscovered beachhead in another state or another continent. Perhaps for David Vincent, it will never end.

"The Nightmare Has Already Begun"
2 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My 1st time seeing this classic series. Wow what a pilot episode! I'm hooked already! Just started to see this one. Roy Thinnes was the perfect casting for this role of "David Vincent" He has this weird but perfect look about him so naturally "normal" people look at him like he's crazy! Nice intro and the music is right on target! Great score by Dominic Frontiere. Excellent narration by Dick Wesson(A Quinn Martin production's common narrator)

Nice guest stars also. This one had a young Diane Baker(who so looked like a young Debra Winger it's uncanny!) the late great J.D. Cannon, the late great Ellen Corby aka "Grandma Walton", the late great Vaughn Taylor and last but not least the late great Dabbs Greer.
