Often, when the UFO is on the ground, no shadow is visible for certain sections of the ship, yet others cast a shadow, indicating part of the ship was already filmed and was blue-screened in later. See more »

I was eight or nine years old when this aired. About all I can recall is that it was frightening and gloomy for a kid to watch, but I often did nevertheless. One thing I seem to recall is that the aliens could kill people by touching them with a device on their palms that looked like a joy buzzer. I remember one episode where a man was sitting at the wheel of a parked car and an alien rose up in the seat behind him and touched the back of his neck with one of those gizmos. Spooky. This must have provided at least a bit of the inspiration for "The X-Files." It also had a motif, if I recall correctly, reminiscent of "The Fugitive." Along with "The Outer Limits," this show really had a terrifying effect on me. I used to have to hide behind my dad's big chair and peek out around it to watch this, and "The Twilight Zone" and "Alfred Hitchcock" as well. I wish TVLand would air a few episodes.
