Tv Season Info

In this reimagining of the 1980s sci-fi series, Alien visitors, who look like humans, arrive on Earth with questionable motives. As massive spaceships hover over Earth's major cities to enable Anna (Morena Baccarin), the leader of an alien race known as 'the Visitors,' to deliver a message of peace, humans fall on the side of either trusting the Aliens or suspecting a devious plan behind their arrival. Series regulars include Elizabeth Mitchell and Morris Chestnut.

This new ABC version is about as subtle as a Donald Trump boardroom firing.

V has its fun moments, but mostly this is pure bunkum, or 1980s-era TV with a thin 2009 veneer.

The new V, duller stuff.

Like some of the best sci-fi, ABC's V is bursting with allegorical possibility.

Director Yves Simoneau and writer Scott Peters get the show off to a thrilling start as the Visitors shake, rattle and roll into view.

The show's writing is simply lazy, characters' actions and motivations taking the clear back seat to whatever the writers have already decided should happen next.

Although the new V incorporates themes drawn from today's headlines, it rockets to success for much the same reason as the original -- solid pound for pound entertainment value, from the performances to the pacing to the special effects.

Against all the odds stacked against remakes, the new V begins with an entertaining, well-made pilot that tweaks aspects of the original story but generally retains many of the show's familiar elements.

Nov 3, 2009 | Full Review…

V feels more rehash than revamp. The show's producers have shown such little feel for the material that there's not much hope of improvement.

I didn't feel a sense of urgency during the middle-section of the pilot.
