The Original TV Series
|They never left! In 1953, Earth experiences a War Of The Worlds. Common bacteria stopped the invading aliens but it only put them in a state of deep hibernation rather than killing them. Now, 35 years from where the classic, original film left off, the aliens have been resurrected and are more terrifying than before in War Of The Worlds: The Complete First Season.|
Editor's NoteThough it only lasted two seasons, the late-'80s television series WAR OF THE WORLDS fashioned a worthy, imaginative sequel to the classic 1953 film adaptation of H.G. Wells's terrifying tale of alien invasion. Picking up 35 years after the movie left off--with the aliens' defeat via earthly bacteria--the syndicated series found the invaders' preserved bodies resuscitated by radioactive nuclear waste and endowed with an INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS-like ability to inhabit their victims. Scientist Harrison Blackwood (Jared Martin) led the charge to combat the alien menace with the help of a team of experts that included biologist Suzanne McCullough (Lynda Mason Green), computer programmer Norton Drake (Philip Akin), and army colonel Paul Ironhorse (Richard Chaves). While not as well remembered as that other '80s alien classic, V, WAR OF THE WORLDS retains a cult following for its action-packed storylines, superb special effects, and a dark, atmospheric evocation of paranoia. This collection presents the series' debut season in its entirety for a total of 22 episodes.
