Read the fine print.

I thought this was the original recording; it's not-- made clear when one of the characters mentions a microwave. There wasn't any reason to change the story.

The aliens are coming. Or are they? Great episode,

Neighborhood paranoia is alive and well. The impact of this story was probably even greater when it was aired on TV in 1960. Cold war commie fears and all that.

That illusive "Twilight Zone Feeling" is here in abundance. A great episode.

Chilling story

A chilling classic. I first encountered this via the movie The Trigger Effect (which was a well-meaning but disappointing adaptation). The very end is silly and unnecessary. Everything up until then is a paranoid cynical take on suburbia and humanity. Perfect building tension throughout.
