Storyline

Paul Cook is an electronics genius with an aversion to people. He is also the man several generals are coming to meet, because he can analyze the nation's defenses and suggest ways to correct their flaws. But beings from an alien would would also like a look at those defenses, and they have devised a plan that takes advantage of Cook's reclusive nature. If David Vincent cannot stop them, they will get that information, and use it to advance their invasion timetable! Written by CommanderBalok

Kevin McCarthy And His Double
22 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Invaders are "watching" Kevin McCarthy on a Time-Tunnel-type viewing screen and they soon send out a double of him.

A wonderfully filmed death scene at an airport is one of the big things that lingers in the mind about this episode. The scene looks like something from a Hitchcock film, the way it is directed and acted, such a well made moment!

But this is "Kevin McCarthy in Irwin Allen Land" to me.

Irwin Allen sci-fi of the period had sci-fi about alien doubles, aliens watching humans on fancy viewing screens and we even have Time Tunnel co-star John Zaremba (Ray) playing a General in this episode. Time Tunnel had just been axed so he was jumping from one sci- fi world to another.

The Watchers is a fine hour and Kevin McCarthy makes it even better!
