Editorial Reviews

If the TV biz, like professional sports, gave out a "most improved" award, then The Invaders would be a prime candidate. Not that the first season of this ‘60s sci-fi/adventure series was bad, as it dutifully introduced the concept (aliens from a dying planet have come to Earth to lay the groundwork for a massive invasion) and the hero (Roy Thinnes as architect David Vincent, who sees the spacemen land and becomes obsessed with stopping them and alerting his fellow humans to the threat). But the second season, delivered here with 26 episodes on seven discs, hits the ground running, greatly amping up the tension and sense of imminent dread. For one thing, while Vincent is still the main man, many others now realize that there are aliens among them; just four episodes in ("Valley of the Shadow"), an entire town watches as an alien glows red and then disintegrates after being shot, and about a third of the way through the season we learn that Vincent is one of a small and valiant group of so-called "Believers" who have dedicated themselves to thwarting the bad, um, guys (who, although they lack blood, a pulse, and a heartbeat, look just like humans, save for their distended little fingers). And Vincent himself doesn’t just root out aliens anymore--he converses with them, negotiates with them, considers working with them, and even kisses a comely female (in "The Life Seekers"). As for the invaders, they still have a host of dastardly methods for wiping out Earthlings: disabling the military’s air defense system before their ginormous invasion flotilla arrives, upping the radiation in the atmosphere to lethal levels, assembling the world’s leaders in one spot under false pretenses in order to wipe them all out, and so on. But while their ray guns, spaceships, brainwashing devices, and various other technologies are way ahead of ours (the effects work is still primitive, but there are plenty of fistfights and chase sequences to make up for that), they are not infallible; and it’s their very lack of human emotions that may prove to be their undoing. But we’ll never know, because Episode 26, "Inquisition" (in which Vincent and his allies determine exactly when the alien invasion will occur), was the last one produced. As was the case with the first season boxed set, Thinnes’ episode intros and a new interview with the actor are the main bonus features. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 1960's drama series of it's kind! October 28, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Invaders - Season Two

Roy Thinnes stars in the second and final season of the excellent science fiction drama series developed by Larry Cohen called The Invaders. For those of you not familiar with this franchise, the premise deals with one man's discovery of and subsequent battle with malevolent aliens who appear human on the surface. The show combines elements of Quinn Martin's chase series The Fugitive with concepts developed in prior films like I Married A Monster From Outer Space and Invasion Of The Body Snatchers.

There are 26 episodes on 7 DVDs to be released in region 1 January 27, 2009. Extras at this writing most likely will include individual show introductions recorded this year by Roy Thinnes in New York City. Roy is a New Yorker now and working on matters to do with his artwork.

Some major character actors appear in the second season of the series, including Gene Hackman as an alien "seed salesman"; Fritz Weaver as an Iron Curtain ambassador; Carol Lynley as a collaborator with the aliens; R.G. Armstrong makes his second appearance this time as a cop; Diana Muldaur as a "good" alien; Michael Rennie makes another appearance as an alien posing as a Scandinavian ambassador; Ed Asner appears once again, this time playing a corrupt father; Richard Anderson of Perry Mason and Six Million Dollar Man fame stars as an alien who learns about human emotions and pain; and Suzanne Pleshette of The Birds and Bob Newhart fame reprises her role (of a sort) as an "emotional" alien. Many other key actors of that classic era of television make appearances, including Ed Begley, Wayne Rogers (who later found fame in M*A*S*H) and Laurence Naismith to name a few.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hallelujah!!! November 23, 2008
By T-Bone
Format:DVD
Another favorite from way back when. I'm not sure what ingredients were used to make those classic sci-fi's, but this one had them all - suspense, innocence, 60's directing, and a low voice narrator. So, round up the family and get ready for part two.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE INVADERS #2: The Believers come out! October 31, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You are about to witness the second and final season (1967-1968) of Quinn Martin's sci-fi series "The Invaders", produced by Alan Armer and whose new associate producer named David W. Rintells revises the series' original concept by introducing a team of experts called "The Believers", led by financier/industrialist Edgar Scoville (played by Kent Smith) who support the struggle of architect David Vincent (played by Roy Thinnes).

A new team of composers popsup under the direction of jazzman Duane Tatro who writes six scores. A fine writer named Laurence Heath (former "Mission: Impossible" writer and story consultant) puts to pen four scripts: the mind control intrigue "Condition: Red" (guest starring Jason Evers, Antoinette Bower and Mort Mills), the Soviet-oriented plot "The Captive" (guest starring Fritz Weaver and Dana Wynter), "Counterattack" (guest starring Anna Capri and Lin McCarthy) and perhaps' the season most challenging story "The Life Seekers" (guest starring Barry Morse and Diana Muldaur) in which David Vincent meets a couple of pacifist invaders willing to reform the politics of their society.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but the First Season was Better December 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I always enjoyed this show even as a boy but now, in retrospect, I can see why The Invaders was cancelled after only its second season.

For some reason, the writers decided to change the show's overall, and critical, premise - that of a man alone, persecuted, laughed at battling not only alien invaders but sceptics and disbelievers who would rather see him thrown into an insane asylum - to a new season where this same man, David Vincent, not only has a circle of co-believers around him but allies willing to collaborate in the battle. Some of these allies are even people like Edgar Scoville, who is wealthy and well placed with many connections in both military and industrial circles and who uses these connections (without much difficulty) to assist David Vincent in the struggle.

Unfortunately, this change undermines the whole spirit of the show, for the desperation the main character had to get people to believe him is pretty much negated. Just why the writers chose to do this I have no idea. In addition, there are several episodes where Vincent and his allies actually collaborate with the aliens to achieve mutual ends. One episode even has the aliens bringing a dead Vincent back to life after he is accidentally electrocuted. Credibility is definitely stretched to the limit here.

Probably the worst episode is one featuring black aliens along with a black investigator David has managed to convert. Inspite of some measure of obstructionism by his socially conscious black wife - who suspects reverse racism on her husband's part - this investigator remains undaunted as his suspicions about a well respected and famous black scientist continue to grow.
