Show Summary

When UFOs place themselves over major cities around the world the alien Visitors, led by charismatic Anna (Morena Baccarin) claim to come in peace, providing humanity with medical miracles and technological breakthroughs. Different characters (Joel Gretsch from The 4400, Elizabeth Mitchell from Lost) become suspicious of the 'V's (visitors) real intentions and try to investigate what is really going on before it is too late so they can claim Victory (V)! Based on the original 1980s miniseries about alien lizards visiting Earth, this ABC sci-fi project is the brainchild of The 4400 co-creator/exec producer Scott Peters.

  • 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!moreless

    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
  • "V" Needs to Be Done

    This is the best show I have ever seen and I am 11. Me and my family got together and watched it. Movie is to good not to have an endng. SHOCKING
  • 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
  • Great show, this 1 and the original also!

    Zero points for ABC in canceling this awesome show. Who's going to bring it back? Come on, I dare you . . .
  • 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.

    ABC Cancels V, Off the Map, Five More

    But despite the cancellation of half-a-dozen series, there's a happy ending for Happy Endings and two more.
