Goofs

In the first scene, with the lead David Vincent, we see a guy in the hotel lobby, a guy with a "normal" hand, with his fingers like yours and mine - for those who perfectly know the series, they'll know what I mean by that - and in the sequence afterwards, just a few seconds, the guy in question suddenly shows an "invaders's hand", with his little finger stiff - those same who know the series will also know what I mean.

Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Narration] Two men - two searchers. The one searches the heaven and the Earth; the other searches in the corridors of the human conscience. The search continues.

particularly impressive episode
23 January 2011 | by boatista24See all my reviews

In this episode, the aliens are creating hurricanes with a device that bares a remarkable resemblance to a US weapons program known as HAARP. It is the realization of Nichola Tesla's 1918 theory that with a given type of antenna array, the magnetosphere can be manipulated to do many things, including creating earthquakes and hurricanes. The current US antenna array in Alaska is more than 10 square acres in area and enlists some thirty separate antennae, each with massive individual power generators, to focus to a solid beam. In "Storm", the aliens are firing it from a fishing boat. This technology, either researched, or not, before they decided to write it into the script, was 30 years ahead of its time. This cutting-edge technology speculation far before its time, which was routinely used throughout the entire gamut of episodes, makes The Invaders the top notch series that it was, and still is. The special effects in this series were nothing less than spectacular. Some of the techniques were directly gleaned from "The Outer Limits" - but in color! - and in this episode, they really pour it on - especially when the antenna is firing.
