Three leather-clad motorcycle-riding you men arrive in a small town where they rent a house on a quiet residential street. The neighbors aren't too sure about them but they are certainly exotic, certainly in the eyes of young Ellen Tillman. The three men leave the house unfurnished and move in with several large crates.

Portrait of an American family on the eve of invasion from outer space. Of course, we know it's merely fiction - and yet , think twice when you drink your next glass of water. Find out if it's from your local reservoir, or possibly it came direct to you... from the Twilight Zone.

I have to agree with my predecessors. The only thing I enjoyed about this episode is the comedic nature of the motorcycle guys, pulling into the real estate office and renting their new digs. I wonder why they chose to present themselves as the outcasts of the time. Why draw so much attention to yourselves. Of course, there's Shelley Fabare, Donna Reed's daughter on her show, falling for one of these fellows. He is full of philosophy. So smart on the one hand, a nitwit on the other. Of course, his little teenage hormones are raging, even though he is an alien. i loved the boss who presents himself as a big eye, looking through a keyhole. And the slang is so very sad. If the old cigarette smoking creator were alive today, this would have probably killed him.
I've always felt that one thing you need in any plot is the ability for the antagonist to be stopped. Even if he can't be, the possibility must be there. That's a major reason this never gets of the ground and leaves a bitter taste in one's mouth.
