5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated show that deserved to survive... Aug. 1 2007
By Bruno Desjardins TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Since another reviewer wrote a substantial review, I will just add that I did not watch the series on TV. I must have looked at it for a few minutes by accident... I rented the DVDs, not expecting much... I was blown away - I watched the entire set in 4 days. Yes, it's heavily influenced by 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', but the story is good, imaginative even. The characters are well written and the dialogues are also way above average. One of the strengths of the series is the impossibility of 'deciding' who is right, who is wrong, who is good, who is bad... That's mainly because unfolding events continually change the outlook and interests of the protagonists.

A dozen actors or so are all important characters and they're all excellent and convincing!

I did not like 'Threshold' and found it to be full of clichés, with mean aliens dreaming of conquering Earth by altering human DNA. 'Invasion' is also about the conquest of Humanity, but in a very subtle way. In fact, there might not even be an 'invasion ' going on... Perhaps manking is trying to fight the next step in its own evolution. Can manking stop evolution? Should it fight evolution to remain as it is now? These are the real question the series ask, but we never get the answer because it got cancelled...

Bottom line: this is intelligent science-fiction - a rare event! -, a wonderful plot, drama, mystery... 'Invasion' is about the 'human condition' - humans at their best, and at their worst. It's about family, relationships, trust, authority, and embracing or resisting change... In 'non-space opera' sci-fi, 'Invasion' is almost as good as 'The 4400s' and its aura of mystery is not unlike that of the early 'X-Files'... High praise indeed... Try it...

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Of the three alien invasion shows that debuted on network television in the fall of 2005, "Invasion" was the one that was hyped the most and for which the most success was predicted. After all, "Invasion" had the advantage of airing on Wednesday night's after "Lost" on ABC. To be fair, in the end "Invasion" did get to air all 22 of its first season episodes, while NBC's "Surface" only got 15 episodes on and "Threshold" filmed 14 episodes but only aired nine of them. Now all three of the shows are available on DVD and all three proudly proclaim themselves to be "The Complete Series," wearing their cancellations like badges of honor whether they deserve them or not. All things considered, "Invasion" was my least favorite of the three, mainly because its story took the longest to develop. Creator Shaun Cassidy was clearly thinking long-term and how to develop his mystery over the course for the first season, and certainly at the end of the year things were starting to get interesting. But as far as I was concerned by then it was the proverbial too little, too late.

The start of "Invasion" had the advantage of art imitation life as the fictional Hurricane Eve strikes Homestead, Florida, on the edge of the Everglades. The show's characters are a pair of families related by divorce and remarriage. The show's nominal hero is Russ Varon (Eddie Cibrian), a U.S. park ranger in the Everglades who has a new wife, Larkin Groves (Lisa Sheridan), who is not only a reporter but also happens to be pregnant with their first child. Russ' ex-wife, Dr. Mariel Underlay (Kari Matchett), is a medical doctor who has recently remarried as well, this time to Sheriff Tom Underlay (William Fichtner).

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but cancelled so no real ending July 7 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was an excellent show. The show was well written with a strong storyline. The acting was excellent. William Fichtner is one of my favourite actors. Eddie Cibrian also delivered a strong performance. The only major disappointment was that it was cancelled after its first year so there is no real conclusion. I watched the show when it was originally aired and was very annoyed that it was not renewed. Still worth watching but be prepared to be disappointed as the viewer is left hanging and wanting to know what happened.
