The eminent astrophysicist, Professor Lindstrom, has proof that aliens have landed on Earth and are planning on taking it over. He also believes the aliens are plotting to kill him. The trouble is, neither his doctor nor his son take him seriously, not even after the plane he was supposed to be in blows up in mid-air. One man believes him: David Vincent. David meets with the professor, but only after a phony preacher and a fake chauffeur fail to prevent the meeting. Meanwhile, the son suffers from debilitating headaches that have no normal cause.

Good, Good, Good!
8 February 2018 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

Second episode, directed like the first one by the same Joseph Sargent (a great film director, which I always admired - he directed episodes of other great TV series like "Kojak", "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", "Bonanza", "The Fugitive", "Star Trek", "The Immortal", and a great feature film called "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three"(1974), with a fantastic cast, Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, Martin Balsam, great great film...) Same tension like in the first episode, great acting, special role by Roddy McDowall, Cornelius from "Planet of the Apes"(1968), Harold Gould, from "The Sting"(1973), and Laurence Naismith, from "Deadlier Than the Male"(1967), "Scrooge"(1970), "Diamonds Are Forever"(1971). No beautiful ladies this time, maybe in the next episode...
