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.

Remembering the original only dimly, failed to see what the fuss was about.

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.

Nov 3, 2009 | Full Review…

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

Nov 3, 2009 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

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

Nov 3, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

The real fight...is for survival, and it may be too little too late for this understandably struggling show, not that the action is finally ramping up.

Nov 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Slow-moving and dull at times, things pick up towards the end in time for the season finale cliff-hanger which ups the ante.

Nov 25, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

With the right mind set, this is strangely addictive stuff and well worth a view.

Nov 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I think there's enough here to make V worth watching, but it feels like watered-down sci-fi, layered with familiar images as if the creators hope that will make it more palatable to a non-genre viewer.

Feb 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Where V stands out is in the more personal dramas, when it creates thoughtful moral conflicts.

Audience Reviews for V: Season 1

  • Dec 28, 2019
    I found myself fondly remembering this show and wondering why I never finished it years ago, it only took 3 or 4 episodes for me to rediscover why. I watched through to the end this time, but do not feel I would have had any regrets if I had bailed again. The characters are all so dull and flat, none of the actors bring anything to their roles, and the aliens threat is very vague and convoluted. This could have been a great sci-fi series, but instead is bogged down by mediocrity

    A refreshing take on the original series I grew up with and loved! I only wished that the series would have been picked up by another network or that a movie special would close a few plot lines .... This show truly deserved a longer run in my opinion.

    Så otroligt konstig serie men jag gillar den ändå en aning :)
