  • Young couple in mid-50s Southwest witness alien spaceship landing. Cannot convince townspeople of what they have seen, and seem to be caught up in increasingly paranoid situation!

    This episode contains references to films 'Invasion of the Bodysnatchers', 'This Island Earth' and TV series 'The Invaders' amongst others. Well scripted, with humour and paranoia, as well as the pathos of the couple's declaration of love and faith in each other in the face of the alien threat, seemingly all around. The ending is brilliant, reminds us of many early to mid 1960s American comic books from Marvel and DC, (also long-gone black and white magazines) which contained such stories in a few pages. Good special effects for 1980s, not overdone, some of the scripted dialogue near the end might have been improved. Nevertheless, one of the better episodes, closer to hard science fiction than some other 'fantasy' based stories in this series.
