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. As Ellen and her father interact it becomes clear they are something very special indeed. Ellen and Scott begin spending time together while the two others continue with their plans. Written by
The close-up of the Invasion Commander's eye resembles the logo of CBS which produced this show. See more »
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'm surprised no one has picked up on the 'TV' communication device with a huge eye, evidently their great leader. Twilight Zone was a CBS show! I found that to be a delightfully humorous subtlety whether intentional or not.
While it's true this is not a great story, it follows the simple formula of all Twilight Zone episodes, where everything is just slightly odd, and is therefore an enjoyable one to watch.
It's an odd mix - partly The Wild One's motorcycle 'gang', partly every sci-fi movie that had space invaders (why ARE those highly advanced alien civilizations always plotting to destroy the earth or its lifeforms?).
