TV Series
    (January 10, 1967-March 26, 1968)
    Science fiction TV series following the attempts of a man to alert the world to an attempted alien takeover of the Earth by aliens disguised as people
    Starred Roy Thinnes as David Vincent
    Aired on ABC
    It didn't do particularly well in the ratings.
    There was no final episode to wrap things up.
    It never showed aliens in their true form and gave almost no information about them or their home planet.
    The aliens rather unimaginatively flew in flying saucers.
    It was never even nominated for any type of award.
    Roy Thinnes was exceptional in the lead role.
    It was one of the few TV series to have only one regular like 'Columbo' or 'Cannon'.
    It cleverly combined the man on the run trying to clear his name genre (like 'The Fugitive' or 'Branded') with the red paranoia communists disguised as aliens genre (such as 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers.')
    The aliens could be identified by really cool clues like a messed up fourth finger, an emotionless affect, and no bleeding when cut and, in a most cool touch, incinerated when killed.
    It inspired nine books, a comic book series, and 1995 TV miniseries.
    It has had a major influence on science fiction shows that followed such as 'The X-Files' and 'The First Wave'.
    It had outstanding guest stars such as; Michael Rennie, Carol Lynley, Suzanne Pleshette, Ed Asner, Dabney Coleman, Roddy McDowall, Jack Lord and Susan Oliver in almost every episode.
    It's done very well in DVD sales.
