Well, “Invasion” was the TV series that got cancelled after first season, a pretty good show though.

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

80s cult classic and an alien (pre 3rd Rock) John Lithgow gives a priceless performance.

A great film of this genre from the late 80s: They Live.

THEY LIVE was the best of the suggestions.

Thanks to all who played!

Battlestar Galactica. The ‘aliens’ are actually artificial intelligence that has evolved. But they do live among humans without people knowing they are not human.

Battlestar Galactica is a must see!

Ah, man. Somebody beat me to the Rowdy Roddy Piper classic, They Live. Best line ever:

“I’ve come here to kick ass & chew bubble gum. And I’m all outta bubble gum…”

There’s always “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”, every other episode of “The Twilight Zone” and “The Outer Limits”, Alien Nation (Both the movie and tv series).
