  • Concordia

    9.5
    Concordia was a superb episode of V, blending discord and dilemma with character and plot development. I really enjoyed watching this episode because we got to see more of Anna's true plans for Earth now that Concordia has been set in motion. It was fun to watch Anna and Erica battling for Tyler, and I think Anna is on to Erica now after Marcus was shot. This episode shows how deep and complex the series is getting. Ryan had to deal with a major dilemma that he may have to pay dearly for. I also am intrigued by Erica's partner who is secretly investigating her. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!moreless

    Now, this is what I am talking about. This is what we all want to see from V. After last week's very dismal showing, we get a great episode here today that definitely satisfied the inner sci-fi geek in all of us.



    The assasination attempt of Marcus was shocking, and definitely the kind of thing that the show needs more of. Taking the premise for this series into account, there is very little action in most shows.



    The idea of Conchordia would be great if it actually existed, just thought I would throw that out there.



    This episode of V had me entertained from start to finish. Great hour of TV tonight.moreless
  • A slower episode which I consider to be a "filler" episode. Nonetheless, the plan the visitors have for the humans is slowly becoming known

    8.5
    This was a slower episode than the previous ones in season 2. However this does not make this a bad episode, just one which seems to drag on too long. I believe this episode was needed to provide a basis for future story lines but still too long with not enough action. The plan to kill Anna did not work, instead Marcus was shot and we presume killed. However, they are from another planet so he could still live. Anna was as annoying as ever in this episode. For some reason I have been turned off of her - maybe it's the way they have been writing her in...Not enough Diana for my liking. Another episode where Anna and Diana were going around in circles, it even seemed like an in-house joke when Diana commented on Anna coming down, circling around her and gloating. Maybe she was sick of the scenes as well?

    All in all, a good episode. I gave it an 8.5 because I absolutely love V.moreless
  • A great episode...

    9.0
    Concordia really was a great episode of V and te best episode this season so far, One of the reason's i liked this epeisode so much was because erica's story was more human she is just trying to protect her son , it was good to have her ex husband back which provived more back story for erica, even tyler came across more likable in this episode, I also am enjoying the personal dilemma Jack is going through with is religon, Anna's concordia story was intresting i am looking forward to see where thy may head it was certainly more intresting the whole human soul story, Marcus getting shot was exciting and im really looking forward to whats nextmoreless

    • Eli: Who the hell tipped Anna off?
      Kyle: There were only two people who had the information and the means to alert Anna. Oh, correction. One person, and one reptile. And I damn well know it wasn't Erica.

    • Erica: As much as I would love to take Anna out, I can't agree to this.
      Kyle: Erica, we can end this war in one swift blow. This is our shot.
      Father Jack: Yeah, and how many innocents go with her?
      Erica: Don't do this, Ryan. Don't put me in a position tonight where I have to make a choice. Because if I have to... I will take you down.

    • Chris: Hey, uh, isn't that your ex?
      Erica: Yeah. A problem with Tyler. I had to bring in the heavy artillery.
