User Reviews

superb episode with excellent acting and directing.
10 April 2014 | by dmpearsall64See all my reviews

The only two part story in the Invaders develops into a find the alien plot similar to the last few episodes of the new Battlestar Galactica.I loved the line at the start of episode two when Roy Thinnessaid "Your acting like a hoodlum out of the Untouchables" at William Windoms driving.The writer George Eckstein,director Don Medford and Roy Thinness himself all worked on some of the best episodes of the classic gangster series from 1959-1962.While Michael Rennies acting is in no way the best work he's done Diana Hyland is great as the Secretary looking like she is really enjoying working on the series(she was also in the episode"Vikor"with Jack Lord) just as she did on"The Fugitive" particularly in the fourth season episode"Dossier for a Diplomat".
