TV Shows - War of the Worlds (1989 Series)

War of the Worlds is a television program that ran for two seasons, from 1988 to 1990. The series is an extension of the original 1953 film The War of the Worlds, often incorporating aspects from the film, radio adaptation, and original novel into its mythology. Though the original film's producer, George Pal, conceived of a TV series from the same film sometime in the seventies, it was not until the late eighties that a series was finally realized, this time by television producer Greg Strangis. The show was a part of the boom of first run syndicated television series being produced at the time.

1 The first season was far from perfect but the second season started confusingly and ended with total contradiction. The final episode tried to tell us that the aliens were actually a peaceful race and that the original invasion was just a scientific expedition that ended in tragedy... WHAT??? Did the second season producer even know what War of the Worlds was about? -- Submitted By: (thegorillaismine) on February 21, 2012, 4:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 The show boned form the first episode. The show was the old and tired secret alien invasion conspiracy plot with only a few fighters knew what was going on. The alien attempts was laughable at best. Rent the war original war of the worlds to see a real alien invasion. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on June 2, 2010, 9:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 There have been plenty of shows over the years ruined by changes to cast and producers - but War of the Worlds is possibly on top of the list. Good, scary stories interspersed with humour in the first season; dull & dark confusing rubbish in the second. The first episode of season 2 tied up some loose ends with the old cast and then moved off in a completely new direction with completely new rules. -- Submitted By: (Phil.JS) on October 4, 2009, 3:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The whole second season was one long excruciating fish-boning. Getting rid of Ironhorse was one of the stupidest cast changes in television history. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 18, 2009, 10:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Definitely the second season, in one of the most brutal shark humpings...err I mean fish bonings on network television. This show is an object lesson for a few things about TV shows period: 1) Network execs don't know jack about entertainment. The End. 2) Sometimes, cast shakeups are inevitable, and someone you like may move on to greener pastures. However, if you look up and half the cast is gone, or they add 20 new people to the show, it's about to hump the shark. 3) TV series based off of movie properties almost never work, because no one ever follows the movie canon properly. I don't know what to say: this show could have been legend in the sci-fi community. It certainly had the pedigree for it. I hope the idea is picked back up in a retcon or something, simply starting the premise of the old series from now, and pretending the old series never happened. I know it won't, but it's nice to dream. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 2, 2009, 3:30 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 A really good show that came on the heels of ST:TNG syndication success of the late 80's. Hercules was also part of this cluster of cable shows that were all syndicated, and surprisingly were pretty good Television. This show was scary and creative it's first season, and if you managed to catch it, it was a fun continuation of the 1950's George Pal Movie adaption from the original book by HG Well's. The second season got destroyed by a cut budget and sheapened story lines to try to cover the shortfalls in the funding. However, the first sesason is still osme great 80's sci fi goodness. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 12, 2009, 12:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
