intro to the tv series the invaders
Video Rating: four / 5
this show use to scare the crap out of me as little boy
If anyone is interested all the Invaders books (3 paper back and two hard back) plus an Invaders magazine is up on Ebay – search the seller “Vinyl Talk Radio”. He’s selling all 3 paperbacks as one bundle. One of the best shows ever. The locust episode always stands out as a personal favorite. Roy is a gentleman and had written me 3 separate letters in the mid 80s.
The narration is by William Woodson, who will be 94 in July. Apparently as recently as 4 years ago did the voice over for Minnesota Twins ads. Is also the voice on the opening of the Odd Couple TV series.
@stewartx5 Maybe you should have stuck to watching westerns…
I am a baby boomer & grew with the early shows which I believe had better qualities & values than our marginally responsible tv (reality shows, slang, gossiping, scandals…). The special effects are primitive by today’s standards but at the time, they were very real for us (the outer limits, twilight zone…). I think this was the golden age of American TV, respectful, educational, fostering “American” values. Thank you for the memories…
“THAT MAN DAVID VINCENT HAD HELLA GUTTS” he single handedly had the intestinal fortitude against all odds to fight those melevelant ET’s that was clearly up to no good on his planet & on mid to late 60′s ABC TV, I REMIMBER CAUSE I WAS THERE WATCHING so thumbs up to this modern day american Sci/Fi TV hero.
Vic Perrin used some of his OL’s musical score on a number of the series telecast, combat was another ABC TV ep that used his musical scores from that show.
I remember an episode when he was working as an architect.Two men escorted him from the caravan he was working in, but they wern’t aliens.They were mercenaries working for a rich businessman.The “Believers” started from here.
It always struck me as kind of ridiculous that they made a point of calling David Vincent an architect in the opening. Other than the episode with Fritz Weaver as a foreign diplomat, I don’t recall seeing Vincent doing anything vaguely architectual. Best villain: Alfred Ryder in “Vikor.”

Hollywood needs to make a blockbuster Summer movie, “The Invaders!”
The movie would be about David VIncent and his son David Jr as they fight the final battle with The Invaders.
In the movie he discovers the truth about The Invaders that they are not from a dying world but time travellers from the future Earth who plan to change Earth’s history until David Vincent learns the truth and makes the final sacrifice that kills all The Invaders for good and changes the future of the Earth for good.
Don’t you love this intro?Oh yeah!!!
GREAT tv series ! I believe “FIRST WAVE” is a modern remake but you can never beat the classics.
1966… what a fresh groovy year man…!!!
Didn’t this show end without a concluding episode?
@crazymonkey1958 I loved this show! As kids we used to go ’round with outstretched little fingers to terrify everyone into thinking we were invaders-though if truth be known things like ‘retards’ were probably more close to what they thought! One thing that ALWAYS perplexed me-what the hell difference did it make that David Vincent was an archetect when it came to fighting aliens?! I guess ‘Garbageman David Vincent’ wouldn’t have worked, but all the same1 Great show!
Please look up “Doctor Steven Greer” and “The Disclosure Project”. He brings forward evidence and testimony from former military personnel, air traffic controllers, and specialized scientific personnel whom have revealed secret information about our being part of a planetary community. The wealthiest ones on earth who sell oil and sponsor “government” want everyone to stay ignorant so there can be no real freedom. People have no idea that they are money slaves.
My favorite TV intro.
Here is a very good website dedicated to The Invaders TV show : theinvaders.4t.com/en_index.htm.
I’d like to see it come back on TV with as many as the original actors as possible on the premise that is 40 years plus later, picking up the story from there.
I always found the space ship in this show a little uninspired.
The saucers in Forbidden Planet, and the Day the Earth Stood Still are much cooler. Lost in Space saucer …. ok.
i have really seen them into the nyc subway
The proof?see the video called starwars subway car!we must warn fbi ncis pentagone and whitehouse!
Yes, it is a shame there wasn’t a new TV series on HBO or SyFy.
On the website theinvaders.4t.com fanfic section is a writer that has a good starting point for a new series.
Thanks for this cm58. This scared the bejeeze out of me when I was 8 years old. Just the music sends a shiver down my spine
Great show,a long time ago!
