There was this one scene where a cute soldier gets their body taken over by an alien that I'm lucky didn't wind up giving me a sexual fetish

I remember this show having an interesting premise that NOSEDIVED into unbelievable awfulness. I couldn't believe it lasted as long as it did. Beyond the first episode I don't remember a thing about it.

I think for many people this show (at least the first season) was "so bad it's good".

Spike Jonez
Shut up. It was so good it's good. *reassesses things I find good* Uh... Or not...

Opening credits score by Not Gustav Holst.

In retrospect, our decision to store the hibernating aliens in the same warehouse as their spaceships was a terrible idea.

Yeah, yeah. Hindsight's 20/20, hippie.

Adrian Paul was in this, I want to say (well, I don't but you know). My dad loved this show. Cause he's dumb as hell.

The very first episode pissed me off:

The entire world was invaded and almost conquered by space aliens in the 1950s!

(but everyone totally forgot about it)

The aliens were all killed by the microbes in our atmosphere!

(but they got better and microbes no longer hurt them)

This show was surprisingly gory. I remember watching a few times and people would get limbs pulled off by the aliens, or have their eyes jabbed out - plus after the aliens possesed human bodies, when they'd get killed their bodies would melt into digusting goo.

There'd also be chest-bursting action as well.

I loved this show when I was 10. I got the first season of it on DVD solely for nostalgia value.

It's nowhere near as good as I remembered it being/wanted it to be.

I can't decide if Colonel Ironhorse is a wrestler name or a gay porn name.

Richard Chaves from the movie "Predator." His character in War of the Worlds carried a tomahawk. Like all real Indians do.

There was an episode of this show set in my home town. I was very disappointed when it turned out that they didn't actually shoot it in my home town.

I watched this show religiously when I was 14. I remember there was a 3rd season where they changed EVERYTHING about the show. It was like the last season of Airwolf, all new cast, new premise, awful effects.
Nikon
You're thinking of the 2nd season. The new guy who took over the show decided it would be a good idea to kill off half the cast, move the show from sunny California to a post-apocalyptic dark future New York, and add Adrian Paul.

The special effects budget was also increased.
