Way, way back in 1983 a T.V. miniseries simply titled “V” was released. The series depicted aliens coming to earth and becoming friends with humans. It was later discovered that they were carnivorous reptiles that were planning on eating humans. The series was watched by millions of people and spawned a sequel titled “V The Final Battle”. There was also a short lived T.V. series titled “V The Series”
Flash Forward to 2009
“V” is being remade into a new T.V. series that is, so far, getting rave reviews.
E! Online rated the pilot episode “on a scale of 1 to 10, we give it an 11. V is the best pilot we’ve seen in, well, forever.”
The website Seat42F rated the pilot episode A+, applauding its cast and effects and naming it one of the best pilots in years.
USA Today’s Robert Bianco named V on his list of the top ten new shows, stating that the remake is well-made and “quickly establishes its own identity.”
Giant spaceships appear over all major cities of the world, the alien “Visitors” claiming to come in peace. As some humans begin to doubt the sincerity of the Visitors, Homeland Security agent Erica Evans discovers that the aliens have spent decades infiltrating human governments and businesses and are now in the final stages of their plan to take over the planet. Erica joins the resistance movement, which includes Ryan, a Visitor sleeper agent who wants to save humanity. However, the aliens have won favor among the people of Earth by curing a variety of diseases, and have recruited Earth’s youth, including Erica’s son, to serve unknowingly as spies.
