Alternate Versions

After its initial weekday prime-time broadcast, the series got a new opening credit sequence and re-edited the episodes for Saturday morning broadcast. This included the removal of all more adult scenes and dialogue, such as references to alcohol and all depictions of near-nudity and violence. Entire episodes were dropped during this second run, making it a confusing mish-mash for new viewers. See more »

Nifty idea
10 January 2002 | by gears_chatroom_godSee all my reviews

A primetime animated show that's not the Simpsons is a rare thing. "Invasion America" has a good basis, and a very talented cast - I'm BEYOND happy to see that it consists of REAL voice acting veterans like Kath Soucie and Jim Cummings, rather than relying on a cast entirely of celebrities, though Leonard Nimoy makes a great Konrad.

However, I find that the show is lacking in some places. First and foremost, I was expecting some cutting edge animation - real flashy, maybe even anime-style stuff. Instead, what I got was rather second-rate stuff, of lower quality that one might see on a high-end Saturday morning cartoon (I was at LEAST expecting stuff up to the quality of "Gargoyles"). The lighting and colouring is trying to be atmospheric, but just winds up making it look rather obscure. Also, the CGI, while nicely done, was seriously out of place.

The dialogue needed some help, too, although the actual language of the aliens was rather well implemented. I usually hate that sort of thing, but it didn't bother me here.

If you're a fan of animation, you should give the show a look. Outside of things like "Beast Wars," "Beast Machines" and "X-Men Evolution," very little enjoyable, watchable animation has come out of American studios in recent years (this whole "Anime" thing that's everywhere you go now...).
