Click to watch this hidden gem on Netflix streaming here!
Nickelodeon has had actually quite a few television shows at this point that could (and were) considered great by both children and adults alike. Invader Zim was absolutely one of them.
Invader Zim follows an alien invader (Zim) as he attempts to infiltrate Earth's population in order to proceed toward conquering it, leading to their final goal of total domination over the universe. Fortunately, an Earthling child discovers Zim's identity before the invasion can happen.
The thing that makes this show so great is the fact that it's hilarious! It's an incredibly random show, and characters like "Gir" make the show a whacky and zany show that's very memorable.
The show is almost too intelligent and the humor is almost too dark to really be understood by some kids, but that doesn't change the fact that it's enjoyable and worthy of watching, no matter what you're age.
I've discovered that this show is expiring from Netflix streaming rather soon, so if you've had this queued up for awhile, waiting for the right time to stream it, the time is now!
I know a lot of you probably grew up watching this show, so I'd love to hear any memories you have of it.
