From Amazon.co.uk

Stretching across seven discs, and bringing together the entirety of its second season, this DVD collection of Invaders brings a welcome opportunity to check out a supreme slice of television science fiction from the 1960s.

Considering that four decades have past since it was first shown, Invaders holds up really very well, too. At the heart of it is the marvelous Roy Thinnes and his character, David Vincent, who realises that aliens have invaded, and are disguising themselves as human beings. And while in the first series he was frequently up against those who simply didn’t believe him at all, here he does find some who do think he’s telling the truth. That provides a good platform for the series, and allows it to cleverly evolve.

And that’s just what Invaders does. Courtesy of some skilled writing, and a real feeling of making the most of what they’ve got, the production team serve up some at-times really quite sinister and edgy episodes, with real intelligence to them. It sustains this for the vast bulk of the 26 episodes you get here, too.

Invaders may not have the profile of many science fiction series of old, but it’s ripe for rediscovery on the DVD market, and it really is something of a treat. Whether you’re new to it or not, it’s very much worth giving it a spin. Before someone inevitably remakes it… --Jon Foster

4.0 out of 5 stars THE INVADERS #2: The Believers come out! 4 Dec 2008
You are about to witness the second and final season (1967-1968) of Quinn Martin's sci-fi series "The Invaders", produced by Alan Armer and whose new associate producer named David W. Rintells revises the series' original concept by introducing a team of experts called "The Believers", led by financier/industrialist Edgar Scoville (played by Kent Smith) who support the struggle of architect David Vincent (played by Roy Thinnes).

A new team of composers popsup under the direction of jazzman Duane Tatro who writes six scores. A fine writer named Laurence Heath (former "Mission: Impossible" writer and story consultant) puts to pen four scripts: the mind control intrigue "Condition: Red" (guest starring Jason Evers, Antoinette Bower and Mort Mills), the Soviet-oriented plot "The Captive" (guest starring Fritz Weaver and Dana Wynter), "Counterattack" (guest starring Anna Capri and Lin McCarthy) and perhaps' the season most challenging story "The Life Seekers" (guest starring Barry Morse and Diana Muldaur) in which David Vincent meets a couple of pacifist invaders willing to reform the politics of their society.

4.0 out of 5 stars The nightmare has begun 28 Feb 2009
I watched this on a b/w tv as a child in the 60's and loved it. Now watching as an adult and in colour it is as good as I remembered. A bit dated in some respects and not the best of visual effects but better than most from the time. Good story-lines with all episodes worth viewing.

One minor niggle is why didn't they use THE INVADERS logo used in the titles on the box. It is so iconic and instantly recognisable.

Great value 25 stories (26 episodes) on 7 discs. I would have given 5 stars but marked it down due to a complete lack of extras .

4.0 out of 5 stars What happened to the extras ? 10 May 2009
Loved this series in the 60s - like many classics of that era, now criminally neglected by tv (200+ channels and no room for this or The Fugitive or The Prisoner or The Twilight Zone ?).
Anyway, so glad to have this but one small quibble - the US version apparently includes introductions to each episode by Roy Thinnes as well as new interviews with him. Why leave them off the UK release, which offers no extras at all ?

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of a mission.... 13 Dec 2008
I am so looking forward to the release of season two of The Invaders on R2 soon.... US tv at it's very best, and a wonderful example of the finest skills, and amazing creative ability that can be achieved by mere humans.... 40 years on, and I still find it so enjoyable and rewarding to watch, even though I have been recording it on video for years, to be able to own the Invaders (complete) in perfect dvd, will be the end of a mission for me.... All around us the rat race comes ever closer, and the world seems to have lost direction, but being able to collect the things which we value so much, gives us all a chance to preserve them, and to re-visit them knowing that they will never change, a refuge maybe, but at least something we have control over.... The Invaders to me was a very intelligent series, cleverly written, directed, filmed, (35mm) acted and produded, it could also be quite sinister, as with the aliens taking human form you couldn't trust anyone.... Some of the settings looked a little frightening, and I for one wouldn't venture into that power plant in the opening episode, so your on your own!.... Great series, Roy Thinnes did a wonderful job, I believed him anyway!.... One concern I have though, Roy Thinnes has hardly been seen since he made the Invaders, any thoughts?.... The Invaders!!.... a great piece of American tv, great price, thanks Amazon, buy and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glowing red when you're dead 6 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase
This is a great show and have fond memories of it playing on BBC2 in the early 90s. Of course it is sci-fi but it it's also a bit of a drama/paranoia-thriller and the sci-fi elements are not too numerous. It has aliens who look just like us; one could think that was a cost saving measure, however it certainly adds to the drama. In terms of effects these are limited, but not to the show's detriment; there's the odd flying saucer with cool whirly sound effects but, and certainly my personal favourite, is the death of an alien where they start to glow bright red and burn up in seconds. Fabulous!!!!!!!

The lone hero is David Vincent, wonderfully underplayed in a cynical portrayal by Roy Thinnes, they keep him on the case, there is certainly no romance apart from a few hints here and there.

This is the better of the two seasons however I do prefer the earlier episodes, they are little edgier compared to the 'Scoville' episodes. Also beware of the very last episode which has some serious flaws with the sound, however I presume this is not the fault of the DVD, rather the master recording.

Finally I also have to praise the show for it's style. For example these were the times when, as the oepening credits rolled, a narrator set the scene, he also read out the name of the show, the guest stars and the epiosde title. All done in a dramatic tone.
