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

User Reviews


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...

Worth watching
