Aliens come to earth and offer their technology but have ulterior motives.
V is another show which got cut before it got into its plot. I might be biased because of my appreciation for its subtleties and the previous TV show and TV-movies.
I do like it, and I wish it continued. I don't consider this recommended viewing for people unfamiliar with the earlier works because it doesn't get into its complete story.
V is a "aliens come to earth" series. I've seen a lot of these, so I was keen to view this one.
It is a reboot of the universe of the earlier V television content. Season two somehow revisits some of that early stuff, and that particular effort makes zero sense.
The way things are lined up is excellent for playing out the story line, as though the show was based around having as much air time as possible. I can easily imagine a five season show.
It's unfortunate the ratings dropped off and whatever decision makers had no vision for this show. If allowed to continue, this would have made for great television. I think people would have ended up comparing it to Falling Skies though, because of the whole theme of the V universe.
Still, since V would have stayed gritty, and Falling Skies got supernatural to the point that I had to stop watching it, I would have strongly preferred V's take on the ideas. Plus, V came first so neener neener Falling Skies.
Also.. Morena hotness.
