This show had potential, but they hired pretty lousy or unfit actorsfor the job :all the aliens characters were terrible, and the princessalien over-used make up all the time. And picking the ex-star of 4400for this was a bad idea.. no one could picture him as a priest.The scenario destroyed the rest of the hope that people could have hopefor this show. It made me hate all of the characters (except for therogue human at a certain point).The stupidity of humans characters were amazing, no communicationbetween the mother and son. The retarded son falls in love at firstsight of the alien. The "world resistance" almost totally invisible(making beleiving in the story so hard).Im glad they cancelled it really. It's a shame that people call thisNow-a-days science-fiction.Have a good day guys, and don't waste your time watching this, really.
I grew up watching the old V mini-series over and over again.Living in a country where we revere our freedom fighters from WWII, Iappreciated the homage the old series was.As a growing sci-fi fan, I could appreciated the slow build of suspenseand the realistic and moving characters.As a young kid I could appreciate the gun fights with laser weapons,and dog-fights with spaceships.As an adult I cannot appreciate anything in this remake.In this remake the freedom fighters have turned terrorists, the Vsymbol has been subverted by the aliens. The suspense is gone and thecharacters shallow and unrealistic.I guess the action is still there.Action on its own doesn't make for a very interesting show in the longrun.If they hadn't f***ed up a beloved show, this would still only be worth3-4 stars.Please, don't remake series unless they need to be remade!
Absolutely horrible.As a huge sci-fi fan in general, and someone who has always loved theoriginal miniseries, to me this is just a waste. Cramming a miniseriesdown to 43 minutes of airtime has completely soured me on anything thisseries might offer later. I felt no involvement with the lives of thesecharacters at all, which is a shame. The actors themselves are allgreat, and did a fine performance. But the editing and brevity of theirexposure to the viewer didn't capture me in any way.So thanks, ABC and Hollywood in general, for curdling and souring yetanother hope for a decent bit of entertainment. You had such a greatuniverse to play in, thanks to Kenneth Johnson. And now it's beenturned into just another sh**-filled catbox.
No, don't cancel. My daughter & I love the show in SA. It is so muchbetter than the old one and so exciting. It keeps us on the edge of ourseats. I love the acting and the expressions that Anna gives the humansand the way they fight back. As adults we all know that this is fictionand it is just so exciting because the movies have advanced and newtechnology has been brought into it. It is amazing. The bliss. I wouldlove to bliss a couple of people, ha ha (just kidding). I really dofeel that the actors bring a new level and they really act so well inthis pro gramme. Please bring it back. Please PleasePlease. I love it.So sad now! I love you guys, all of you are fantastic and don't listento any other bad comments! Your show is beyond fantastic!!! We just sawthe last episode last night and there is so much more to happen. Comeon directors/producers, even get Jerry Bruckheimer to help out - don'tquit on your fans. Love SA.
I'm a big sci fi fan and I watch just about anything in the genre, butI'm not always very impressed with much of what comes to my screen. Iam constantly wondering how badly written shows like this one are giventhe green light. Here we have a solid cast, a big budget and greatspecial effects(except for a few shockers here and there) its slightlyentertaining on one level but it fails over all.The characters are extremely shallow and there's almost no sense ofstructure to the plot. almost nothing happens from episode to episode.We're in season 2 now and it still feels like the same scenes over andover. there's no pay-off, no sense of achievement. There are so manyplot holes that it becomes so far from being acceptable fantasy sci figoodness and moves into the irritating illogical place that makes yousay "what!! but that doesn't make sense??" There's a mystery supposedlyunravelling but it makes so little sense that you just stop caringabout it. why is it that brilliant shows like Joss Whedons firefly getcanned and shows like this that feel like one long extended trailer geta second season. I'm still watching it though so I guess it cant bethat bad. :)
Not really being a Sci-fi buff, I wasn't really too enthusiastic aboutwatching this show. Aliens just didn't seem all that interesting. But Igave it a chance. I watched the first episode and I must say I wasfairly impressed. But I still wasn't convinced this was a really goodshow. I continued watching it in the weeks to come and now, I findmyself more addicted to this show then I have ever been to another TVshow. I really do recommend this to everyone. It's not just a crazyalien show. It's so much more. There's action, romance, humor, thrills,and the writing is incredible. The directing is amazing and thegraphics are pretty much motion picture quality for the most part. Itis definitely worth watching.Can't wait for the season finale Tuesday!
Warning - Spoiler alert.Is it just me or does the whole 'V' thing feel like a Scientologytakeover? The idea of beautiful spokespeople for the aliens demandcomplete devotion and who will simply not tolerate negative commentaryof any kind smacks of scientology. The distinction is clearly drawn between the minister who's God doesnot demand devotion but seeks faith that salvation will one day come,and between the V's who promise immediately healing and grace viaknowledge and technology, the price of which is that complete devotionis demanded where body and soul is immediately turned over to thevisitors.There is something palpably paranoia inducing about the V's - inparticular Anna. I think she does a superb job, particularly in theinterview, one poster here aptly commenting, and I'll paraphrase, "Hersmile never touches her eyes." Well put. Her body language isoutstanding throughout, particularly when she is standing. (When seatedfor the interview her legs crossed remind one a bit of the Sharon Stonescene from 'Basic Instinct'. Moreover, the sexuality of Anna, as wellas Lisa, only heighten the seductive paranoia.The show is visually stunning, in particular the backing landscapeinside the mother-ship. Beautifully rendered. The V's wardrobe worksvery nicely as well. The lighting is superb.But aside from the seductive paranoia inducing lead V's, thetheological dilemma and the visual supremacy the rest of the charactersjust feel thinly directed, or as thinly directed as time will allow -because everything just feel very rushed. The lead female FBI agent hasgreat acting skills, but her supporting cast just phones it in. Theycan't hold a scene together around her. But it's also about the script.The dialog feels phoned in from Middle School as well. And who couldn't see that the lead agent's partner wasn't a rat? Ithink my 12 year old would have thought that way too obvious.
When the new "V" was first announced, I didn't know what to expect. Iwas a fan of the original and am becoming a fan of the new series. Thecharacter of Anna is going to develop quite a following. Even when theleader of the visitors is committing atrocious acts, she is quite sexy.Kudos to Mr. Johnson! I hope the depth and complexity of the othercharacters continues to grow and that the actors develop into a trulyensemble cast. From the start,I wondered if any of the cast from theoriginal would show up. I smiled to myself when I say Jane Balder'sname in the credits for last week's episode. I anticipate there will bemore surprise visits (hint, hint) from original series alumni in thefuture. Who knows? We might fight out that John May is alive and thathis real identity is that of Mike Donovan.
to be honest when i first started watching this show i had no idea whatto expect ,i had never heard of it before but my brother recommended itso i decided to watch it ....i think this show is amazing, it has a lot of potential to be a greatseries , for however long it may last.this is my first review so its obviously not the greatest but i thinkthis show won't be a waste of your time , and i didn't want to wasteyour time with a long review ....so enjoy watching this show !!! ( and if you don't then don't blame me:p)
I decided to check this out since I was a fan of the re-imaginedBattlestar Galactica, another 80's series that was wayy too shabby forme to enjoy. TV has just gotten better over the years, with better fx(of course) and better writing and character development. So for therecord, I have never watched the original and I don't care to.This series has some good, though uninspired, fx (with the inside ofthe alien craft looking like one big apple iCity). The characters arethe typical scifi one-dimensional cardboard types: good guys, bad guysand cannon fodder. Most of the actors look like they were plucked fromsome kind of church promotional. The acting is decent if you discountthe simple clichÃ©s involved (loving mother raising a rebellious son,priest who has his faith shaken but is still trying to do good, evilhuman-looking aliens who want to do evil stuff). The fast pace of theshow gives you little time to notice the lack of depth and there's somedecent action. This makes it all mildly entertaining in a Hollywoodkind of way. It might be too early to pass judgment on this seriessince it has just started, but I don't see it lasting very long if itkeeps going on like this.
I've seen the original, so I wasn't expecting much. While I loved Vwhen I was younger, I've seen it again and found it really lackingsomething.SPOILERS This was great. Instead of an intrepid journalist, we have aconcerned-with-his-image cable news anchor. We have an FBI agent, aVisitor resistance fighter, and instead of a teen-aged girl as thepotential love interest for the Visitors we have a teen-aged guy. And,while I thought the original leader of the Visitors was hotter, the newone was pretty enough, I suppose. END SPOILERSThe pacing is great, and the story is fresh enough even for one who hasseen the original. Just different enough. And it kept my interest allthe way through. I'm hoping this keeps getting renewed, if they cankeep the quality up.
I was really hopeful for this series and I was pleasantly surprisedwith it's first season even though it was 'silly' sometimes. Season onefinished with a promise of something spectacular and game-changing forthe characters. Unfortunately it seems to have used up all of the ideaswriters had for this show.Season two is a parade of bad writing and bad acting (E. Mitchell is aprime example), such a shame. Like some of the other reviewers, I don'tthink I'll make it to the end of the series.The only good thing about this show now is Morena Baccarin, playingcharacter of Anna. Rest of the cast seems to be ashamed to play in asci-fi series.
As usual, instead of creating new franchises, networks look to make afast buck on reanimating the rotting carcasses of old ones.V is just a bunch of trite television clichÃ©s cobbled together in aloose pattern resembling the original V series. There's nothing ofinterest here. We already know the story and where the writers mightpossibly dare to write some kind of new story twist, I'm sure anyonewho's ever watched a modern television series can predict where it'sgoing. That's how formulaic this show is.There are no exceptional actors involved, but even if there was, thecharacters are flat and lifeless.I've seen other reviewers espousing the social and political commentaryof the show. That just makes me sad. If this is what passes for socialcommentary these days, I'd prefer it if they just avoided italtogether.
I loved the mini-series "V" back in the wayback - though I thought theseries itself fell apart by the end of the first season - so I wasn'tsure how they were going to pull this one together.so, far, the pilot shows great promise, if they stay on this path, anddon't pull a "Heroes"-style implosion, it'll be worth a weeklyinvestment.Morena Baccarin (who I just love in general) does another notablecharacterization. How can someone so pretty come across as soserpent-like??? I sincerely kept expecting her to strike, like arattler; her body language, and that smile that never touched her eyeswere absolutely unnerving. The interview was especially disturbingbecause she was SOOOOOOOOO nice... after having shown us a differentattitude only moments before.I was especially impressed by the sub-text and the "current events"themes in the writing; equating the V's to terrorists was a brillianttouch. I did however have a problem with the idea that so many of themsomehow managed to infiltrate society without much challenge:with thehigh level of technology that we have today, interstellar scout shipsbringing a number of aliens that are completely undetected by themilitary seems unlikely, as does the "upkeep" for these creatures to beliving on earth. For example, they didn't go into any detail regardinghow they maintained their human-like appearance, and that was a gapinghole for me. Perhaps it will be addressed in future episodes.I was greatly appreciative that the singular "religious" element(Father Jack) wasn't a blithering, bumbling idiot - thank you!!!Usually, Christians of any denomination are passed off in suchenvironments as doofuses, so it was nice to see that one of the goodguys (I assume) wasn't played as a stereotypical jerk. I agree with the comments of others that this has a high "paranoia"factor - the idea that the V's had been infiltrating our societies forso long prior to their "arrival", and that ANY one could be one...yeah, you'd be seriously wanting special glasses to see them (anyoneget that reference to another evil-alien movie?*) I thought thecostuming deserved special note: the V's clothing (I thought) utilizedvery subtly the subconscious impressions made by clothing. Erica Evansand Dale Maddox, the FBI agents, wore shlupy,"working" clothes, whereasAnna was super-polished, as were many of the other high ranking V's.The lesser ranks had pseudo-uniforms - not militaristic enough tocreate concern, but they had a degree of "authority," that made themseem so much "better" than boring humans, and implied a degree oftrustworthiness and orderliness that people seem to think means "good".Overall, well done, looking forward to more, good acting, good scenery,good storytelling, and once it had created the foundation, good pacingand character development.*movie reference, in case you're DYING to know: "They Live". IMDb it:you're already here anyway!!
Show is now running in NZ. I have seen the 1980 version - tell you thetruth, the old one was much more credible than the new version.Morrena Baccarin is amazing as usual, hence you like her from the firstframe. No matter what she is planning - you connect with her since shehas such a magnificent appearance.On the other hand - the BS FBI agent - took all the fun out of theshow. So much BS you don't know where to start.If the show makers would have swapped the two rolls, it would have beenmuch more credible.Story is shallow too - and the whole show lacks credibility. The V headof security does whatever he pleases - undetected of course - they havethe top of the notch technology but not a simple security cameras on...yea right.A priest looking the other way when killing people, FBI agent lies toeverybody (undetected of course) and so on.I stopped watching it since it makes me mad.So much effort to get such a poor show - what a waste.
Nostalgia aside, as I'm a fan of the original. Garbage. Just plaindull. You don't give a damn whether the "good guys" even win. Onedimensional characters, weak effects and the kind of "hum-drum" rubbishthat now passes for science fiction. If you doubt what I'm sayingcompare it to the worst episode of the new Battlestar or for thatmatter the old one and realise just how you've been conned by justanother "re-imagining" of a classic TV show. Doesn't even rate as"sci-fi." Just the same Canadian science fiction I have seen "cobbled"together in other shows. I remember people talking about the originalthe next day at college and couldn't wait for the next instalment. Idoubt the same will happen with this turkey.
Just another predictable remake of an originally marginal series. Thereare so many other Sci Fi subject that can be explored, why do we haveto rehash bad stuff? Acting is uninspired, the story is bland, thelines can be predicted before they are spoken. The actors are earning apaycheck but their performances are rather painful. However, I assumethat we can look forward to some interesting special effects eventhough so far nothing has been that impressive. The ships are goofy,the mattes are, let say, OK... the story line needs to get interestingif they are going to keep most adults interested, teenagers may watchfor the cute, sexy girls, but that is hardly enough for an Emmy.Personally I'll watch the reruns of Flash Gordon, at least I'll laughwatching them. Next?
Note: I am commenting on the 2009 Pilot episode only, not the olderseries. It was highly entertaining and suspenseful, can't wait for nextepisode. I have loved "good" (believable) Sci-Fi for years, feel latelythere's been a void of good shows and movies. The plot was good, andprogressed well. The CGI/special effects were awesome for a TV show.The scenes of the ships in the sky, and the interior of one of theships was very realistic to me. I also feel that the characters seemedquite real, the actors were carefully selected/cast, and did anexcellent job. I did not watch all the episodes of the original series,only a few, and it did not impress me enough to stick with it. But thisone appears to be a "keeper". Time will tell.
I've learned that the best way to write a reasonable review of the TV-series is to wait (and record) until they air all the episodes and thenwatch all of them one after another (no week delay). This way thepicture looks radically different. So, V is nothing but Dallas, DenverClan or some Mexican (or Turkish) soap-opera with artificiallyfabricated plot full of holes, illogical happenings and "twists" (allvery predictable, as a matter of fact), unexplained events brought upin some episodes, bad acting and casual (I-really-don't-care)production manner. Of course, most of the people craving for SF arewilling to swallow up almost anything that even remotely reassemblessomething like that. This is not it. It's simply a cheap placebo formasses, full of clichÃ©s seen so many times before in other forms. Theyshould not have canceled the show. They should not have made it in thefirst place.However, three stars for casting Morena Baccarin and Alan Tudyk (onlyas guest, unfortunately) of the Firefly, but even they can not savesuch a badly conceived and produced project.
The review's title about says it all...This series wasn't great tobegin with, as compared to the original in its time, but it wasn't bad,either...I didn't see the need to change writers at the XMAS break, and thatchange makes even less sense to me now...The new episodes just have the taint of "Chuck"'s bad writing all overthem. Terrible plot holes and extremely predictable plot developments.Damn it, what a shame; feel like this show, while perhaps not the nextLost, or as good as the original, could have been very good, but, forme, I'm quickly losing faith.For new viewers who are wondering whether to spend the time to get intothis one, I'd give it a "neutral" rating for now...
