This one is on my keeper shelf. Always been a big fan of WOTW...in all it's incarnations over the years. This was one of them. Really enjoyed this series when I was a kid, and was waiting many years for it to be released. Being rather obscure, I didn't think it would happen. Then Spielberg's movie showed up, along with this dvd set.
Still a great show...good writing...quite a bit gorier and slimier than I recalled. In my opinion, a few episodes are even pushing the present day boundaries for network television.
The second season, on the other hand, departed from the first season's formula...in many ways...but, it's still worth experiencing...at least for the closure.

The basic premise is that the events of the original film from the 50s took place, but majority of the population has forgotten about it. In the present (80s) the aliens r discovered and escape (having been in a state of suspended animation). The aliens have the ability to possess humans (killing them while inhabiting their bodies). It is now up to a scientist, his new assistant, a computer expert and a military Cololonel to stop the aliens. Enjoyable sci-fi series
