Storyline

An alien saucer crashes in the Utah foothills. Reports of its fiery demise draw David Vincent, even after flyovers by Air Force jets failed to locate the site of the mysterious fireball. Vincent soon discovers Gale Frazer, who has helped the craft's only survivor, Blake. Frazer, sick of war after serving in Vietnam, believes Blake's people are peaceful. David must gain her trust and convince her that Blake's mission is not peaceful. That is complicated by the arrival of Sawyer and Lavin, who have come to collect the box Blake's craft brought to Earth. Written by CommanderBalok

Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Narration] David Vincent's war is unrecognized, unheralded. The battlefield can be anywhere - anywhere the Invader has carved out a foothold. David Vincent's war will have no ending until the Invader is driven back to his own world - or until he makes David Vincent's world his own.

Richard Anderson: The Sick Alien In Need Of Help
23 August 2016 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Richard Anderson plays a sick alien. His saucer has crashed on earth and he seeks the help of a human female who warms to him. Vincent soon appears.

The first half of this Robert Butler directed episode is a bit slow and dull but it picks up in the second half when we see an "invader" like we have never seen an "invader" before. The lighting in the second half of this hour is of motion picture standard and I guess we have Butler to thank for that. Butler really knew his stuff as he directed the outstanding two-part pilot to Batman (1966) and Star Trek's The Cage (1965)

As you can see, season two of this series is going in all sorts of creative directions, but it is too bad we are missing the wonderful music of season one. But the season two music is okay.
