Discuss The Invaders

It feels like an end-of-season episode rather than an end-of-series episode, sort of like the final episode of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, where they had originally intended another season but then canceled it.

From the little bit, I have read it was a 'political' decision? Here is an article in the L. A. Times about it, I can't access it because of a paywall.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“We were prepared to go on for a third season and, during a hiatus, suddenly everything was canceled. The ratings were fairly respectable at that time.” Thinnes suggests that it was a “political decision” to cancel it. “Just about everything [executive producer] Quinn Martin had on at that time was canceled.”

Thanks for the link. (I got there by using a proxy server, so I could read the whole article.) According to the article, there was a sort of reboot/miniseries in 1995, but it was a flop, I guess, based on the low IMDb rating (5.3 as of this writing). It sounds like it was really over the top, w/Scott Bakula as an autistic guy whose alien brain-implant device malfunctioned because of his autism.

You are welcome.
