INVASION was all about the kids this week in a filler episode. The “former” students are trying to get from England to France by way of the Chunnel. It was not as easy as it sounds. Roadblocks surrounded them at every turn. 

THE TUNNEL gave viewers valuable insight into the connection between the aliens and some “special” children. It is the adage “fight or let go” for many of them in the labs. The writers are determined to reunite Casper and his friends, but at this rate, it will take eons…or another season. I must mention the determination and tenacity these kids possess. They are stronger than many of the adults and the Army, but that is “show biz” for you. 

INVASION is at its best when there are crazy, wild, panicking scenes of people being chased and hunted down by these strange creatures. There was a moment or two this week. More, please. 

INVASION is available to stream on Apple TV+.
