    What the hell?

    Damn it why are these morons so intent on ruining sci-fi no matter what it is.

    They should have made the 4 episodes into a mini-serie just like the original. The original was so interesting. This new V is for Very Boring. I am so disappointed with the 4rth episode. They definitely need a new writing team. The original V's characters had depth and emotions. These new ones are so stagnant. Even if they brign bacDiana/Jane Badler, they cannot save V. It would be like the same desperate move for bringing back Heather Locklear to save Melrose Place. Talent doesn't triump bad writing.

    Totally! Bring back Jane Badler, that would save us!

    Diana could be Ana's mother who Ana usurped the throne from. The 5th column can help bring her back,

    ...then she'll turn on them for being traitors!

    absolutely right - at the beginning they should mention that it there will be a 3 month break after 4 episodes.

    shocking!

    Now that I think about it, I am not going to miss V after its 4 episodes.

    i followed the show because it interest me what will happen next but cutting it for 3 months? too long to wait. i wont watch it anymore. too long to wait. they suppose to continue it until season 1 ends to give good impression to the viewers who followed it. they just started the series then they will pause it for 3 months? boring....

    Syfy channel should had done this show. At least there would be more episodes and the fan base is already there. Leave it to big networks to screw everything up science fiction.

    i don't put my faith in any fantasy or sci-fi programming on major networks, especially ABC. A review of how they handled "Invasion" and "Pushing Daisies" are two prime examples. As soon as "V" aired I told my friends not to get into it too much because it would get canceled/destroyed before it had a chance. It is (was) what it is (was). The "Olympics" cop-out is ridiculous. Why does Olympic coverage affect what airs in Nov, Dec and Jan? Is all of ABC shutting down for 4 months? They used the "writer's strike" on PD and made viewers wait 6 months for season 2 to start when other shows across networks finished off their seasons. Indeed, as several of you have said, wait that long and put it in a miserable time slot and its toast.

    Four episodes in November and the rest on March of next year is a very bad idea. This series already sucks making people wait for that long for the rest is suicide.

    Well I like the show....but the wait may be very damaging.

    It makes the show look as if it's in trouble; as if it was canceled then brought back for a second chance. That tends to scare away new viewers.

    It's good that they aired the recap of the first 4 episodes, although I only noticed it after having watched the 5th one Lol.
