Storyline

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.

Say what you like about this episode but I love almost everything about this aliens-in-jackets show: the casting, the jackets, the alien leader the boys report to, the sets, the props, the lighting, the music, the story, the Rod Serling narrations...it is all just fine with me!

The casting is special because the alien boy actor who wants the earth girl also appeared in the B&W Outer Limits...he also playing an alien in Limits as well.

The deeeep voiced alien leader does seem to sound a lot like those alien leaders in Irwin Allen's Lost In Space/Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea TV shows that came shortly after Black Leather Jackets? Was Irwin watching and getting ideas?

The ending is left a bit up in the air but I can forgive that point.
