Bring back 'Invasion' (TV Series)
- ABC television broadcasting company.
Invasion is an American science fiction television series that aired on ABC for only one season beginning in September 2005.
The show told the story of the aftermath of a hurricane in which water-based creatures infiltrate a small Florida town and begin to take over the bodies of the town's inhabitants through a cloning process (first by merging with and then unknowingly replacing them). The show was produced by Shaun Cassidy Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
Due to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the aftermath in the southern United States, early on-air promotions were quickly pulled by ABC. The advertising then switched emphasis completely to the alien invasion aspect of the series, while the hurricane received no mention. The premiere was also preceded with a warning that the show featured images of a fictional hurricane that viewers could be sensitive to.
Personally i feel that Invasion was an exceptional show which has much more to offer, considering the current sci fi genre on television is at a low point, i say bring back Invasion. There are shows being aired at this moment in time that lack the quality of storyline, acting and potential that a real sci fi show requires, Invasion had all of this, the acting was outstanding, from William Fichtner as Sheriff Tom Underlay to Ariel Gade as little Rose Varon, throughout the show the actors portrayed their characters brilliantly and showed remarkable proffesionalism.
The storyline is fresh and original, many alien invasion storylines fail terriblly, whereas Invasion gained, at some points, above average ratings, although it was cancelled after one season i hardly believe this was due to a poor plot/show, their were many other factors that resulted in the cancellation (Hurricaine Katrina being a main factor)
And the show has great potential, any human being with an average knowledge of either sci fi shows or simply just good television would be able to tell you that Invasion is an all round excellent sci fi television programme, and has alot more to offer, i just hope its not too late.
We, the undersigned, call on ABC (American Broadcasting Company), Warner Bros. Television, and Shaun Cassidy Productions to renew the television show 'Invasion' for further seasons.
