  • INVADERS - abysmal plot and laughable story and acting - No comparison with Series One

    I loved Series 1 and the thematic movie writing applied to shorts - it was clever and credible in its depictions but the second series fails for two reasons. Poor plot and storylines and unncessarily throws viewers out of the story with Rod Serling appearing but the Invaders episode is so bad it is upsetting. Compare this to Close Encounters which is strong, emotional and well acted credible believable scene of a mother's son being taken away in horrific circumstances. I laughed out loud at Invaders - Why? There is a woman who looks like she has never lived alone, never cooked or used knives - she cuts a huge vegetable with one knife which becomes blunt after a second when she cuts another small vegetable a few seconds later, hammy overacting over nothing and seems as if she does not know her own home, laughable to see anyone expecting us to take being terrorised by two toy robots seriously. Policy to switch off bad episodes from now on
