What is wrong with people these days. Everyone is being so picky!!! It seems people hate good scripted shows and people want crappy scripted shows. First it was firefly, terminator the sarah conner chronicles, then V might be next! Come on people relax!
The heck with good scripted shows and just have fake reality tv all day. Come one people stop hating on it and comparing it to the original. The show isn't slow by any means. They need to tell the story for the people that never watch the original. It can't be fast paced all the dang time. I'm tired of the shows that i like being canceled. Let's american idol type shows dominate or fake CSI dominate. Hell, to hell with syfy shows altogether. That show is slow, but yet people watches it all the time. Come i'm a huge syfy fan and i'm tired of my syfy shows getting cancel because people wants to complain so much. Startrek get's canceled, caprica is on the chopping block. Well I guess it's going to be semi-scripted reality shows taking over. And people most if not all reality shows arent' reality. Only the ignorant people thinks it's real. It seems people that watch syfy shows complained the most. No wonder shows like american idol dominates. Before we know it there won't be any good scripted syfy shows pretty soon. God I hope fringe will last more than 3 seasons.moreless
We are at war, always.
The battles of will between earthling leader Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) and alien leader Anna (Morena Baccarin) are masterful. Both the writing and the acting.
They echo the death duel between Ellen Ripley and the Alien Queen in "Aliens."
Amazingly enough, the reimagined "V" is a dyed in the wool feminist film. Both the protagonist and the antagonist are females. These two powerful females will determine the fate of two entire species, one mammalian, the other reptilian.
Great writing is all about subtext, and these scenes had subtext up the wazoo. Take Anna's immortal line, "We are at peace, always." Since everything Anna said was a lie, what she really meant was "We are at war, always."
Too bad the series lost its sense of direction, hence forward momentum, during the middle episodes. Major failure to apply Story Structure 101. A real shame. Shouldn't have happened.
Fortunately the pilot and the last half dozen episodes, beginning with "Siege" and Erica Evans' "Saint Crispins Day speech," were absolutely stunning.
The conclusion was good as a season ending but terrible as a series ending. It all depends on whether the franchise can be revived at some time.
The series should be revived. But whoever takes charge must not allow the story to spin its wheels the way it did during the second half of season one and the first half of season two.moreless
This show deserves a proper Ending
ABC failed to give a proper ending to its most popular shows like Alias or Lost... But I thought this show was going to be different. Specially after the finale of the 2nd season. They must bring it back for at-least 2 seasons of 12 episodes. I dont care which network brings it back but this show deserves a proper ending, a closure.
Please bring "V" back!!!!!
PLEASE!!!!! Bring it back, there are so many fans who would love for you to continue with the story! If ABC or the other networks do not wish to air it, perhaps you could put it on Sci-Fi, where it obviously belongs!! Regardless, the fans deserve to have it back (with the original cast members!) Thank you.
Two or ten season, it doesn't matter.
I have seen one or two episode of V and I'll continue from the start to the end of the whole serie, two season or more ONLY if ABC will give a ending without any cliffhanger. As ERICAEDWIN also said a lot of other good serie have been canceled, and there is more. Don't forget Invasion, Witchblade, Surface, Point Pleasant and so on. I and a lot of people have get tired to follow some serie who get canceled.
There is a lot of new serie who looks of interest, but I don't wanna waste my time of another serie who will get canceled, and an ending after one or ten season with cliffhanger are not of our interest.
I don't say please cause I don't yet follow V, I only tell if V get an ending who ends the story where aliens or humans have won, I'll then watch the whole serie. Two or ten season, it doesn't matter, just give us a good story without any cliffhanger.
I've only rated it 8 because I just watch the one episode and like it very well.
I'll maybe then buy V on bluray too.
There are maybe too late to continue Surface, but there is still a chance for V.moreless
