Storyline

John Carter has summoned the local sheriff to a site where he claims saucers have landed, not once but several times. Each time, the saucers are gone when the sheriff finally arrives. Now David Vincent has come, lured by Carter's claim that he can predict the time of the next landing. When Carter's prediction proves true, he and David Vincent manage to commandeer the saucer - at last, proof of the invasion! But one alien escapes to warn his people. And further complications arise from a couple fleeing the country, whose plane the saucer inadvertently downed. Written by CommanderBalok

Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Narration] Two others have seen what David Vincent has seen. Two others now know that flying saucers do exist. The search for Congressman Bonning and Police Chief Thorne will continue for months. Because of their disappearance, dozens of others will begin to wonder, reluctantly believe, what David Vincent knows is true: that alien beings from another galaxy now walk the face of the Earth.

Thrilling

I particularly like this episode, more than the other ones. Maybe because it is set in the right middle of the desert. Very few characters and few talks too. I think of a western, and don't forget that it is directed by Jesse Hibbs, a western specialist, former director of Audie Murphy features.

Yes, as far as I have gone in this TV show, it is my favourite. And one interesting point is the way all the characters are put together, the orchestration. Very interesting.

And, as usual, a somewhat bittersweet ending, where the audience wonders if there will be one for the whole story some day...
