"WE ARE THE SEEDS OF THE FUTURE!" – So Invasion's timeslot is about to be temporarily taken by yet another police procedural (The Evidence): too bad because the ABC show's definitely found its own unsettling niche, particularly in this week's ep focusing on the show’s cast futile attempts at a return to post-hurricane normalcy. (A nice sequence featuring teen regular Jesse taking note of the new cliques that've sprung up among his high school peers. "It's a great argument for home schooling," he sez.) All this Fox-like meddling with series' schedules wreaks havoc on continuity-dependent programs like this – when you only show one new ep after several weeks of reruns, and then put the series on a month-long hiatus, how the hell are viewers supposed to keep up?
