    The Invaders is an American science fiction television program created by Larry Cohen that aired on ABC for two seasons, from January 10, 1967 to March 26, 1968. Dominic Frontiere, who had provided scores for Twelve O'Clock High and The Outer Limits, provided scores for The Invaders as well.

    The series was a Quinn Martin Production (Season One was produced in association with the ABC Television Network - or as it was listed in the end credits, "The American Broadcasting Company Television Network").

    Roy Thinnes stars as architect David Vincent, who accidentally learns of a secret alien invasion already underway and thereafter travels from place to place attempting to foil the aliens' plots and warn a skeptical populace of the danger. As the series progresses Vincent is able to convince a small number of people to help him fight the aliens.

    14 "The Believers" December 5, 1967

    David Vincent has finally gathered some serious support in his quest to stop the invaders in the form of industrialist Edgar Scoville (Kent Smith). As Vincent holds a secret meeting with his 'believers', Scoville (at another location) promises some heavyweight support and financial backing. However, the aliens are onto Vincent at his location in Singeiser Electronics and as Vincent exits the building with some believers, they are shot at and three of their number are killed including Mr. Singeiser. Vincent escapes with his briefcase to a car, but he is chloroformed from the back seat by an alien. Vincent wakes up in what seems to be an underground alien prison camp where Vincent resists alien hypnosis, divulging only fake details about the group of believers. When that fails, the aliens stage a 'dummy' rescue attempt, but Vincent quickly sees through it. David is then put into general circulation in the alien prison where he is befriended by Elyse (Carol Lynley). Vincent believes that she is also a 'captured' human and she explains that she is doing forced research for the aliens on crowd control. Together they plot an escape and when Elyse distracts a guard, they get out of the building through an air vent.

    With aliens in pursuit they eventually get to a hotel where Vincent questions Elyse about her work for aliens. She tells Vincent of a major plan by the aliens to cause mass murder in Los Angeles. Vincent listens carefully and then decides to bring her into the secret group, where she is introduced to Professor Hellman (Rhys Williams). When Vincent and Elyse return to the hotel later, Vincent gets a call informing him that Hellman has suffered a 'heart attack'. Vincent then calls Scoville and while discussing events drops a fictitious name 'Jansen' which is picked up by Elyse. Vincent sends Elyse to meet Jansen at a disused warehouse, but instead of Elyse, two aliens turn up looking for Jansen but somehow end up dead. Elyse turns up sometime later and David accuses her of working with the aliens. She admits it and says her brother is being held captive. Vincent then convinces her that her brother has been killed by the aliens already. Three more aliens arrive and Vincent manages to eliminate two of them when Elyse helps Vincent by creating a diversion. The third alien escapes. Vincent returns to the group and Elyse is accepted as a member.

  • Mission Impossible S2 E02 - Trek

    Mission: Impossible is an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicles the missions of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). In the first season, the team is led by Dan Briggs, played by Steven Hill; Jim Phelps, played by Peter Graves, takes charge for the remaining seasons. A hallmark of the series shows Briggs or Phelps receiving his instructions on a recording that then self-destructs, followed by the theme music composed by Lalo Schifrin.

    The series was filmed and financed by Desilu Productions, and aired on the CBS network from September 1966 to March 1973. The series was reprised in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996.

    The series follows the exploits of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF), a small team of secret agents used for covert missions against dictators, evil organizations and (primarily in later episodes) crime lords. On occasion, the IMF also mounts unsanctioned, private missions on behalf of its members.

    The identities of the higher echelons of the organization that oversees the IMF are never revealed. Only rare cryptic bits of information are ever provided during the life of the series, such as in the third season mission "Nicole", where the IMF leader states that his instructions come from "Division Seven". In the 1980s revival, it is suggested the IMF is an independent agency of the United States government.

    S2, Ep2 17 Sep. 1967 Trek

    Jack Cole was arrested and imprisoned for stealing art treasures of a Latin nation. The mission for Phelps and his crew is to get the precious objects back. But that won't be easy. Cole is being tortured by the colonel who heads the prison -- and the colonel is a traitor who wants the treasure for himself. The IMF plans calls for playing the two men, each deadly, off each other. A further complication occurs as Cole begins to go blind after being forced to stare at the sun as part of being tortured.

  • My Favorite Martian - S1 Ep01 My Favorit...

    My Favorite Martian is an American television sitcom that aired on CBS from September 29, 1963, to May 1, 1966, for 107 episodes (75 in black and white: 1963-65, 32 color: 1965-66). The show starred Ray Walston as Uncle Martin (the Martian) and Bill Bixby as Tim O'Hara.

    John L. Green created the central characters and developed the core format of this series, which was produced by Jack Chertok.


    A human-looking extraterrestrial in a one-man spaceship crash-lands near Los Angeles. The ship's pilot is, in fact, an anthropologist from Mars and is now stranded on Earth. Tim O'Hara, a young newspaper reporter for The Los Angeles Sun, is on his way home from Edwards Air Force Base (where he had gone to report on the flight of the X-15) back to Los Angeles when he spots the spaceship coming down. The rocket-powered aircraft had nearly hit the spaceship and caused it to crash.

    Tim takes the Martian in as his roommate and passes him off as his Uncle Martin, who refuses to reveal any of his Martian traits to people other than Tim, to avoid publicity (or panic), and Tim agrees to keep Martin's identity a secret while the Martian attempts to repair his ship. Uncle Martin has various unusual powers: He can raise two retractable antennae from his head and become invisible, he is telepathic and can read and influence minds, he can levitate objects with the motion of his finger, he can communicate with animals, he can freeze people or objects, and he can speed himself (and other people) up to do work.

    Ostensibly an inventor by trade, Martin also builds several advanced devices, such as a time machine that transports Tim and the Martian back to medieval England and other times and places, such as St. Louis in 1849 and the early days of Hollywood, and brings Leonardo da Vinci and Jesse James into the present. Another device he builds is a "molecular separator" that can take apart the molecules of a physical object, or rearrange them (a squirrel is made into a human). Another device can take memories and store them in pill form to "relearn" them later. Other devices create temporary duplicates, or levitate Martin and others without the need of his finger.

    Tim and Uncle Martin live in a garage apartment owned by a congenial (and former WAVE as revealed in season one, episode one) but scatterbrained landlady, Mrs. Lorelei Brown, who often shows up when not wanted. Martin and she have an awkward romance from time to time, but Martin never gets serious for fear of going home to Mars. She later dates a vain, cold-hearted, plain-clothes police officer, Detective Bill Brennan, who dislikes Uncle Martin and is highly suspicious of him.

    "Martin O'Hara's" real name is Exigius 12½. Revealed in "We Love You, Miss Pringle", it was heard again when his real nephew, Andromeda (played by young actor Wayne Stam), crash-landed on Earth in the show's third season. Andromeda, originally devised to bring younger viewers to the aging show, disappeared without explanation after this single episode and was never referred to again. Andromeda was, however, a regular on the later animated series My Favorite Martians. Andromeda had a single antenna, which Martin explained was because his baby antennae had fallen out and only one adult antenna had come in so far.

    1 1 "My Favorite Martian" Sheldon Leonard John L. Greene September 29, 1963

    Covering the flight of an Air Force experimental aircraft, reporter Tim O'Hara discovers the wreckage of a small spaceship---and the surviving, genial Martian anthropologist who piloted it. (This was also the pilot for the series.)

    A great way to sell the round earth and the space program. 

  • Kung Fu S1 EP11 A Praying Mantis Kills

    Kung Fu is an American action-adventure martial arts western drama television series starring David Carradine. The series aired on ABC from October 1972 to April 1975 for a total of 63 episodes. Kung Fu was preceded by a full-length feature television pilot, an ABC Movie of the Week, which was broadcast on February 22, 1972. The series became one of the most popular television programs of the early 1970s, receiving widespread critical acclaim and commercial success upon its release.

    Kung Fu was created by Ed Spielman, directed and produced by Jerry Thorpe, and developed by Herman Miller, who was also a writer for, and co-producer of, the series.

    Grasshopper Caine

    The series follows the adventures of Kwai Chang Caine (portrayed by David Carradine as an adult, Keith Carradine as a teenager, and Radames Pera as a young boy), a Shaolin monk who travels through the American Old West armed only with his spiritual training and his skill in martial arts, as he seeks Danny Caine, his half-brother. Many of the aphorisms used in the series are adapted from or derived directly from the Tao Te Ching, a book of ancient Taoist philosophy attributed to the sage Laozi.

    Keye Luke (as the blind Master Po) and Philip Ahn (as Master Kan) were also members of the regular cast. David Chow, who was also a guest star in the series, acted as the technical and kung fu advisor, a role later undertaken by Kam Yuen.

    Kwai Chang Caine (David Carradine) is the orphaned son of an American man, Thomas Henry Caine, and a Chinese woman, Kwai Lin, in mid-19th century China. After his maternal grandfather's death he is accepted for training at a Shaolin Monastery, where he grows up to become a Shaolin priest and martial arts expert.

    In the pilot episode Caine's beloved mentor and elder, Master Po, is murdered by the Emperor's nephew; outraged, Caine retaliates by killing the nephew. With a price on his head, Caine flees China to the western United States, where he seeks to find his family roots and, ultimately, his half-brother, Danny Caine.

    Master Po: Close your eyes. What do you hear?

    Young Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.

    Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?

    Caine: No.

    Po: Do you hear the grasshopper which is at your feet?

    Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?

    Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

    Of course you come to Conspiracy Cafe a site that hears the heart and sees the grasshopper. Others who do not may chide you, but they do not see or hear as Christ was able to say despite their having eyes and ears.

    11 11 "The Praying Mantis Kills" Charles S. Dubin Richard Lewin March 22, 1973 

    Murderous thugs come looking for Caine after he identifies them as perpetrators of a bank robbery. A youth's ideas of what it means to be a man are challenged by Caine's quiet heroics.

    The philosophy of the libtard seems to have overridden the instructions of the master. Caine refuses to intercede in the defense of his flock. He waits until after evil has committed murder. There is no sin in defending the home from the brazen thief who in this case is intent on murder. Saving the Sheriff and protecting his son was allowed and necessary. Leaving a whole community without their Sheriff at such a crucial moment in time would be the sin in my opinion. We prefer not to fight unless it is thrust upon us. It is not our decision, but our adversary's. So in effect he chooses his fate. By allowing him license to continue we aid and abet evil. 

    The Law of God is clear. "If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed." Exodus 22:2


    The blood of the slain would be on the one who having the means stood aside and let his brother perish. It is like that with the rise of the beast system. Those who remain silent have the blood of the slain on their hands too. 

    Ezekiel 33:6 the Watchman for Israel

    …5 Since he heard the sound of the trumpet but failed to heed the warning, his blood will be on his own head. If he had taken warning, he would have saved his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and fails to blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes away a life, then that one is taken away in his iniquity, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood .’ 7 As for you, O son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word from My mouth and give them warning from Me.…

    The Twilight Zone is an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. The program followed in the tradition of earlier shows such as Tales of Tomorrow (1951?53), which also dramatized the short story "What You Need", and Science Fiction Theatre (1955?57), and radio programs such as The Weird Circle, Dimension X, and X Minus One, and the radio work of one of Serling's inspirations, Norman Corwin. The success of the series led to a feature film, a radio series, a comic book, a magazine, and various other spin-offs that spanned five decades, including two "revival" television series. The first ran on CBS and in syndication in the 1980s, the second ran on UPN from 2002 to 2003. In 2013, TV Guide ranked it #5 in its list of the 60 Greatest Dramas of All Time.

    "Execution" The Twilight Zone Original air date April 1, 1960

    "Execution" is episode 26 of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. It features Albert Salmi, who also plays the lead character in the Season 4 episode "Of Late I Think of Cliffordville".

    Opening narration

    “ Commonplace—if somewhat grim—unsocial event known as a necktie party, the guest of dishonor a cowboy named Joe Caswell, just a moment away from a rope, a short dance several feet off the ground, and then the dark eternity of all evil men. Mr. Joe Caswell, who, when the good Lord passed out a conscience, a heart, a feeling for fellow men, must have been out for a beer and missed out. Mr. Joe Caswell, in the last, quiet moment of a violent life. ”


    In 1880, an outlaw cowboy named Joe Caswell is about to be hanged for murder. But as the noose tightens around his neck, he suddenly disappears and finds himself in 1960, in the laboratory of Professor Manion. Manion explains that he used a time machine to pluck Caswell from the past. But when Manion sees Caswell's rope burns around his neck, and hears his admission that in his life he had murdered over twenty men, he knows he must try to send Caswell back.

    The discussion leads to an argument. Caswell attacks Manion, killing him with a desk lamp. He then flees from the laboratory into a busy street, but is overwhelmed by the lights and the noise; he returns to the lab, distraught and desperate. He breaks down, pleading for the dead scientist to help him.

    A thief named Paul Johnson enters the lab. Caswell fights with Johnson, but Johnson gets the upper hand and strangles Caswell with the cord from the window curtains. As Johnson tries to find Manion's safe, he accidentally activates the time machine and is sent back to 1880, appearing in the noose intended for Caswell, just in time to be hanged. The witnesses to the hanging are shocked to see a stranger's body, in strange clothes, in place of Caswell's. They question whether this was the Devil's work or some other power's, and whether they have just executed an innocent man.

    Closing narration

    “ This is November 1880, the aftermath of a necktie party. The victim's name—Paul Johnson, a minor-league criminal and the taker of another human life. No comment on his death save this: justice can span years. Retribution is not subject to a calendar. Tonight's case in point in The Twilight Zone."

    Alcoa Presents: One Step Beyond (also known as One Step Beyond) was an American anthology series created by Merwin Gerard. The original series was broadcast for three seasons by the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) from January 1959 to July 1961.

    Created by Merwin Gerard and produced by Collier Young, One Step Beyond was hosted by John Newland, "your guide to the supernatural" (also credited as "Our guide into the world of the unknown"). Newland, who also directed every episode, presented tales that explored paranormal events and various situations that defied "logical" explanation. Unlike other anthology programs, the ABC network series episodes were presented in the form of straightforward thirty-minute docudramas, all said to be based on true events. Initially, the program included the corporate name of sponsor Alcoa as part of its full title.

    One Step Beyond filled the time slot at 10 p.m. Tuesday vacated by the crime/police reality show Confession.

    Among its varied tales, One Step Beyond dealt with premonition of death ("The Lincoln Assassination") and disaster ("Tidal Wave", "Night of April 14th"); astral projection ("The Long Call"); the existence of ghosts ("The Last Time"); and wildly improbable coincidence ("The Glider", "Death on the Mountain", etc.).

    "Back There" is episode 49 of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. It originally aired on January 13, 1961 on CBS. It involves time travel, and stars Russell Johnson, who had appeared in another time-travel episode the previous season.

    Opening narration

    “ Witness a theoretical argument, Washington, D.C., the present. Four intelligent men talking about an improbable thing like going back in time. A friendly debate revolving around a simple issue: could a human being change what has happened before? Interesting and theoretical, because who ever heard of a man going back in time? Before tonight, that is, because this is—The Twilight Zone. ”


    On April 14, 1961, young professor Peter Corrigan (Russell Johnson) is involved in a discussion with colleagues at the elite Potomac Club on the question of whether events in history could be changed if time travel were possible. After bumping into William, a familiar attendant, on the way out, Peter feels faint. Confused by the gas lamps and horse-drawn carriages on the street, he notices that he's wearing clothes of a much older style and walks home. He finds that his home is now a boarding house. In discussion with the strangers he meets there, he discovers that he has been transmitted back in time to April 14, 1865, the date of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth.

    Corrigan rushes to Ford's Theatre to warn everyone but is arrested for disturbing the peace. The police presume him to be a Union soldier under emotional distress or drunk. One officer tends to believe Corrigan, but is overruled by his superior. After he has been held in the police station a short time, a "John Wellington" arrives and persuades the police to release Corrigan into his custody. Corrigan implores Wellington to do something to warn and protect the president.

    In Wellington's room, he gives Corrigan a drink, but it is drugged and he collapses. Later the policeman who believed him arrives and rouses him, relating that he had tried unsuccessfully to convince anyone to take additional precautions. The landlady identifies the tenant of the room as John Wilkes Booth, and indeed the handkerchief left behind by "Wellington" bears the initials JWB. Booth himself had drugged Corrigan to prevent any interference in his mission. And now it is too late: the crowd outside is spreading the news that the president has just been shot.

    Corrigan pounds his fist on a window sill and finds he is back in 1961, pounding on the door of the Potomac Club. It seems the same, but there is no longer an attendant named William. Back at the table with his colleagues, he finds that the scholarly discussion has moved from time travel to money, and William is also at the table participating. He says that his money was inherited from his great-grandfather, a policeman who had had made a name for himself by somehow predicting the assassination of Lincoln and trying to warn about it, becoming Chief of Police, then a councilman, and eventually become a millionaire through real estate. Overwhelmed by all that has happened, Peter steps aside to wipe his brow with the handkerchief in his pocket and notices the initials: JWB. It turns out that Corrigan was able to change the past, but not in the way he had intended.

    Closing narration

    “ Mr. Peter Corrigan, lately returned from a place 'back there', a journey into time with highly questionable results, proving on one hand that the threads of history are woven tightly, and the skein of events cannot be undone, but on the other hand, there are small fragments of tapestry that can be altered. Tonight's thesis to be taken, as you will—in The Twilight Zone.

    "Ubit Stalina" means to kill Josef Stalin on Russian language. This TV Mini-Series is directed by Sergey Ginzburg, known for "Once Upon a Time in Odessa". "Ubit Stalina" takes time in 1941, when Germans sent troops to invade Russia. Winter was very cold and soldiers couldn't stay on the front for a long time, so Germans decided to strike a crushing blow and cunning - to kill Josef Stalin. Leadership of the Reich created special group of officers from the team "Abwehr" "Brandenburg-800". This team helped Nazi agent to deeply embed in USSR army - Will generals of USSR army find out agent? Will they save Russia from invasion of Nazi?..

    Totally fictional mini-series set in late 1941 when the Nazi forces are at the outskirts of Moscow only to find themselves thwarted by the Soviet soldiers and an early winter. To compliment the invasion the Reich seeks to kill Joseph Stalin in the hope of striking a shattering blow to the Soviet people. This operation is the mission of a special forces unit of Abwehr officers and aided by a Nazi agent planted within the Soviet Army. But brave and resourceful officers of the USSR's Ministry of State Security stand in their way. A decent period piece that has little historical context and is basically a good detective show.

    Many a truth is spoken in jest or fiction. Imagine the plot to kill the new Stalin Donald Trump or Vladimir Putin. What lengths could they go to? What would be required to protect them?

  • The Champions EP20 The Silent Enemy

    The Champions is a British espionage/science fiction/occult detective fiction adventure series consisting of 30 episodes broadcast on the UK network ITV during 1968-1969, produced by Lew Grade's ITC Entertainment production company. The series was broadcast in the US on NBC, starting in summer 1968.

    The series features Craig Stirling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett as agents for a United Nations law enforcement organization called "Nemesis", based in Geneva. The three have different backgrounds: Barrett is a code breaker, Stirling a pilot, and Macready a recently widowed scientist and doctor. 

    During their first mission as a team, their plane crashes in the Himalayas. They are rescued by an advanced civilization living secretly in the mountains of Tibet, who save their lives, granting them perfected human abilities, including powers to communicate with one another over distances by ESP (telepathy), and to foresee events (precognition), enhanced five senses and intellect, and physical abilities to the fullest extent of human capabilities.

    Many stories feature unusual villains, such as fascist regimes from unspecified South American countries, Nazis (a common theme of ITC 1960s and '70s TV, in part due to both the domestic audience and writers having been the "War generation") or the Chinese. The villains' schemes often threaten world peace – Nemesis's brief is international, so the agents deal with threats transcending national interests. The main characters have to learn the use of their new powers as they go along, keeping what they discover secret from friends and foe alike. Each episode begins with a teaser, followed by the title/theme song. Immediately following that is a post-title sequence vignette in which one of The Champions demonstrates exceptional mental or physical abilities, often astonishing or humiliating others. In one example Stirling participates in a sharpshooting contest. Additionally, Stirling hears the ticking of his girlfriend's lost wristwatch in a large field, enabling him to locate it. In another, laughing hoodlums block in Macready's car, which she physically pulls out of the parking space one-handed. Ironically, the narration during these often public demonstrations usually mentions the need to keep the powers a secret.

    HMS Artemis (P449) was an Amphion-class submarine of the Royal Navy, built by Scotts Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. of Greenock and launched 28 August 1946. The submarine sank while refueling in 1971, was raised and sold for breaking up in 1972.

    The show is a great video display of the interior of that era's RN submarine. HMS Alliance is a museum ship.

    The Swamp Fox is a television series produced by Walt Disney and starring Leslie Nielsen as American Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion. It was based on the 1959 biography of Marion by Robert Duncan Bass.

    The theme song *("Swamp Fox, Swamp Fox, tail on his hat... nobody knows where the Swamp Fox at...") was sung by Nielsen as well. Myron Healey played Marion's top aide, Maj./Col. Peter Horry. One of the Swamp Fox's adversaries was Colonel Banastre Tarleton, played by John Sutton. Patrick Macnee played a British captain, Tim Considine played Marion's nephew Gabe Marion and Slim Pickens played Plunkett, one of the Swamp Fox's men. Hal Stalmaster appeared in three of the eight episodes as "Gwynn." The Swamp Fox did not bring to Disney the commercial success that had been achieved by Davy Crockett.

    The series encompassed eight episodes, running as part of Walt Disney Presents. Episodes were presented on Sundays on ABC from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and were also broadcast by CBC Television.

    The Disney Channel reran Swamp Fox episodes in the 1980s and 1990s, while Nielsen was at the height of a second career as a white-haired comedy movie star. The first three episodes of the series were also released in 2005 on DVD (in a set including three episodes of The Nine Lives of Elfego Baca).
