Storyline

John Carter has summoned the local sheriff to a site where he claims saucers have landed, not once but several times. Each time, the saucers are gone when the sheriff finally arrives. Now David Vincent has come, lured by Carter's claim that he can predict the time of the next landing. When Carter's prediction proves true, he and David Vincent manage to commandeer the saucer - at last, proof of the invasion! But one alien escapes to warn his people. And further complications arise from a couple fleeing the country, whose plane the saucer inadvertently downed. Written by CommanderBalok

Narrator: [Epilog Narration] Two others have seen what David Vincent has seen. Two others now know that flying saucers do exist. The search for Congressman Bonning and Police Chief Thorne will continue for months. Because of their disappearance, dozens of others will begin to wonder, reluctantly believe, what David Vincent knows is true: that alien beings from another galaxy now walk the face of the Earth.

UFO Believers, A Saucer, The Desert & More Ford Cars...Love It!
22 August 2016 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

At last, an empty saucer is found in the desert, and Vincent takes a close look at it.

Now we are cooking. After the good-but-not-great season opener, now we get a close up look at a saucer in the second episode of year two. Maybe this should have been the season opener?

Good effects of the saucer sitting in the desert, the desert itself looks good as it is all filmed on location (many other shows of this period would have used a studio set instead) and let us not forget the wonderful Ford cars. Just a great looking hour.

On top of all this we have UFO believers all over the place (for once) and one of them is played by that cute girl from Forbidden Planet (1956).

Does this sound good? It is.
