A man named Nolan Wood tries to stop an invasion of Earth by aliens disguised as humans. The mini-series serves as both a reboot of and a sequel to The Invaders (1967), as well as a TV pilot for a full length series that never happened. There are two versions of the show - the original TV version where the aliens never show their true form and the latter DVD version where they do.

In on scene a cop says this David Vincent has been chasing the aliens for 20 years. See more »


The train dispatcher is afraid that engaging the mechanical emergency brake would generate enough heat to set off explosive gases. In fact, the course of action he selects has a much greater chance of triggering an explosion by [1] sparks routinely generated by the subway's third rail power shoe, [2] the dynamic brake system he proposes to use turns kinetic energy into heat through banks of resistors, and [3] directing Nolan Wood to make an impromptu shunt is sure to create sparks.

Bad, Bad, Bad!
19 June 2007 | by possumopossumSee all my reviews

The original show produced by Quinn Martin was intelligently done with Roy Thinnes as architect David Vincent as the lone voice that cried out in the wilderness against these alien beings. This mini series made a joke out of it. Now, the old boy makes only a couple of cameo appearances. If you blink, you'll miss him. You would think this movie would open with him stumbling on this Nolan Wood guy and the two of them would work together to try to bring these beings down, but no. Just a mile ride down a lonely country road, he says they need to split up so they won't be captured together and blah, blah, blah. What is this crap? After all these years, I would think he would be glad to find a kindred soul who would be of some help to him. Vincent looks like a dingbat in the brief appearance he makes in this series. They should have teamed up together.

This series also got pc on us. It seems to imply that anyone who smokes is a hostile being from another planet. Any smokers out there willing to get the ACLU after the people who made this pile of crap? And this business with the flies was just a little bit gross. And Nolan's ex-wife had to be one ditzy female. At least their son called her on not noticing that there is anything weird about all these people coming in and having steak and eggs with their cigarettes and coffee. Got to give them credit for that at least. And what was with this radio announcer who, I think was supposed to be a Rush Limbaugh clone? Here's a news flash for you, folks. Rush isn't as hateful as this guy was. But I digress. Bottom line: this show ain't worth a tinker's damn without David Vincent. They just used this movie as an excuse to preach misguided environmental themes. As I said in the heading, BAD! BAD! BAD! (Did I mention it was bad?) 1 out of 10, and that's being generous.
