Based on the groundbreaking novel by H.G. Wells and the 1953 film of the same name, this classic TV series thrusts sci-fi addicts and action-adventure fans directly into the fiery crucible of two wars that will determine the fate of our world.
Decades after it appeared that the ruthless alien invaders were killed off by common bacteria, increased radiation wipes out the Earth-saving organisms. Brought back from suspended animation, the enemy uses their body-snatching ability to adopt human form.
Immediately, the invading force begins formulating plans for final genocidal warfare. In the first explosive season, a small army of human resistance fighters manage to thwart the aliens' efforts to take over Earth. After this intergalactic battle turns our world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the second season finds the remaining warriors fighting a new wave of invaders.
With all human life at stake, these heroes battle to save what remains of the planet in this powerful Complete Series Collection that includes all 43 thrilling, action-packed episodes of the timeless science fiction epic. 11-disc set, available for the first time in a new shelf-friendly complete series collection.
