Episode 17: The Condemned - 5/9/67

Mr. Tate is digging through files in a safe while his nervous cohort urges him to hurry. Tate finds the file he's looking for and, as they make for the door, they hear someone jiggling the handle and head for another exit.

They walk down the hall as cool as cucumbers, despite the fact that Tate is not concealing well the file that sticks out from under his coat. They go to the fire exit, but when they see someone coming, head in the other direction. A man sees them and sets off an alarm. Tate stashes the file in some sort of vent, and he and his partner try for another door, but men start emerging from the doors around them and they are forced to fight them off. They get away and lock a steel gate behind them. The pursuers recover and go to unlock the gate.

Tate's buddy, Ed, is freaking out, saying they'll find them no matter where they go, as they make their getaway in a truck. Sure enough, a car pulls up alongside them and runs them off the road. Ed is knocked out with a head injury. A little girl who's playing with her dolly inside her playhouse watches out the window as Tate gets out of the truck and hides in the bushes. Three men get out of the car and the two with ray guns fire on the truck and disintegrate it. The little girl screams and cries for her mommy.

Episode 16: Wall of Crystal - 5/2/67

A newlywed couple can't wait to get a room and are busy smooching while driving, causing a truck to run off the road and roll over onto its side, as they run into a pole.

They watch as the driver of the truck staggers out and collapses as he glows red and disintegrates. The bride asks her new hubby, Bill, if he saw the guy burn up, but he only wants his new wife to make herself useful and hoof it to the gas station to get help for his broken leg.

They both begin coughing, and as she nears the truck, she falls to the ground. Bill stumbles over to her unresponsive body and sees some odd, shrinking crystals. He covers one with a mound of dirt, clutches his throat and expires.

Episode 15: Moonshot - 4/18/67

The Florida Keys - two astronauts, on pass, marlin fishing. Eight days before the launching of the United States' first moon shot.

Two astronauts I'll be calling Gilligan and Skipper are working on their disabled boat as two guys begin flying their helicopter over it. The pilot nods to his companion and a smoky red gas is dropped from the copter onto the boat, as a beachcomber observes from the beach.

Gilligan looks out the window obscured by red haze and complains about the fog, while the Skipper calls for a mechanic, saying he doesn't want to get caught in the fog. For some unknown reason, Gilligan decides to open the window and allow the red fog in while making crazy faces in its fiery glow, while the person the Skipper is in contact with over the radio says there's been no fog reported.

He sees his shipmate contorting and goes over to find out what's up and begins contorting himself. He drags himself back to the radio and communicates that it's not fog, it's red, and he can't breathe. He passes out as the voice on the radio repeatedly calls for Major Banks.

Episode 14: Panic - 4/11/67

A truck is ambling along a country road when some kid suddenly runs out in front of it, holding up his arms to stop it. He is panicked, saying his mother's had an accident back at the house and he's got to get to town to a doctor. The driver says it's against company rules. The young lad exclaims, "In the name of God, PLEASE!" to which he immediately responds, "Okay, pile in," with a friendly smile.

Two guys pull their car to the side of the road and scrutinize the cars passing by them. The truck begins to approach, but the kid spots them and pulls on the truck driver's arm to get him to pull over, and he sneaks out of the truck. The two guys see it and begin to follow the kid down the hill.

The truck is weaving in the road. The truck driver's buddy asks him what's wrong, but all he says is, "it's where he grabbed me," and clutches his arm. His buddy tries to take the wheel, but they go off the road. A passerby in a truck stops and checks inside the cab. The driver is a bit bluish with some frost about the temples and brow. His buddy notes that he's frozen, despite the fact that it's summer.

Episode 13: Storm - 4/4/67

Three guys in suits are smoking and watching a filmstrip of a hurricane. One of them describes a hurricane that unpredictably hit Miami and killed 26 people, and goes on to show a really weird boat out in the eye of the hurricane. Dr. Gantley asks where it's registered and the man next to him says it's from St. Matthew beach. He remarks that the boat, as well as the town it's from, miraculously survived the hurricane.

The other fellow thinks he's reading too much into it, but Gantley asks how a storm of this kind could happen in February. He calls up Father Corelli and asks him for a ride to St. Matthew beach. He says he'll meet him at the emergency station while the fellow who was questioning him watches him with a sinister expression.

Ambulance and police sirens wail as a body is loaded into an ambulance as a priest watches. Ed Gantley is walking toward him when a palm tree suddenly falls near him, taking down electric poles that crackle and spark like fireworks have been set off. The priest runs over to him to ask if he's okay, and Gantley suggests they meet in a bar next time. The sinister looking fellow steps out of the bushes and adjusts his collar with his pinky up, as he watches the two walk away.

Episode 12: The Betrayed - 3/28/67

Three months ago, David Vincent had come to the Carver oil fields in Houston. There had been reports of unexplained lights and that same night, two watchmen had been found dead. The verdict in both cases: cerebral hemorrhage. Now, suddenly, after endless nights of vigil in the Carver fields, David has found proof that the Invaders are here. 

David Vincent has finally got himself a camera! He snaps photos of a saucer landing near an old oil tanker. When someone emerges from the tanker, he takes more photos. When a truck drives up and a lot of the green suits go inside, he creeps forward and keeps snapping away.  Surely he'll walk away with all this proof of Invader existence, no?

While the little green men are inside the truck, he climbs up on the tanker and goes inside. There is a world map of Earth with areas lit up and circled, and the whole place is humming and beeping. He takes more pictures and then decides to screw everything up by pressing buttons. Some periscope type object begins rising while making a loud humming noise that is noticed by one the green suited aliens outside.

Meanwhile, David pulls some sort of recording tape out of the wall and waits for the advancing alien to sneak up on him. Fortunately, he's one of those easy to defeat aliens, but unfortunately, David has chosen to throw his camera at him to deflect his ray gun shot. David struggles with him and pulls his head toward a rung on the ladder, choking him until he glows red. He immediately lets go so as not to get caught in the afterburn. He climbs out of the tanker without bothering to grab his camera.
