It has to be a said that it is hard to find new sci fi ideas these days, everything seems to have been done and hence the remake here.

Since the 1980's when the origional series was aired, technology, opinion and sci-fi have changed and that is what this remake is; up to date.

Fot those in to Sci-fi it will not disappoint with its central focus on the outer space aliens who wear a rather convincing mask of peace and serenity to those humans on earth. But for those of us who are not into the whole Sci-fi gig, there is plenty of action and drama with so many twists and turns that you truely do not know what is around the corner or rather in the next episode.

This series draws parrallels with our society and I think provides a link and allegory for hysteria and peoples growing concern with mistrust in society today which is evidently shown through the so called peaceful aliens. When in fact they are ripping skins off humans and their own people who stand against the plans in the rebellion called the 5th Collumn and the V's leader Anna is planning more than providing healing and love for humans. Think more along the lines of raping the earth.

This series is packed full of everything that is needed to keep you hooked while learning what is going on and growing attached to the characters. You identify with the characters and their situations and because it is from all walks of life; from an FBI agent to a priest to news anchor to a teenager, there is something and someone for everyone. It is extremly realistic in its perception of alien invasion should it so happen today, it is believable and that is what makes it a watch for those of us into sci fi or not.

I lived in the States when V was first shown. I caught and taped the late 1980 repeats back in the UK. I watched The Final Battle over ten times, to the point where I could literally quote the majority of the dialogue. It had a huge impression on me. I bought the videos when they came out and years later when the DVDs arrived I was so familiar with the programme that I did not watch them and kept them sealed until I chanced upon some German versions in 2011, and out of curiosity for hearing a "German" Diana I investigated and I still thought it brilliant all those years on. Prior to the German versions, I went to some lengths to get the 2.99 HMV exclusive new series pilot and was reasonably impressed with the "revival."

Having now bought series one and watched it, I was totally drawn in to the characters, their plights and agendas. I have held back on the final episodes, but just watched them and the season finale Red Sky is just brilliant. Nice predictable conclusions, some unexpected turns and some revelations all against some fabulous background music. It was so good I rewound it and watched the final sequences again.
I loved the original V. I have no doubt watched it on a par with the most ardent of fans. I am apprehensive of revivals, but Doctor Who and BSG have been good. And so has V.

There are characters that nicely draw parallels with the originals, if not in purpose, then in looks. Whilst there are similarities in concept with the original, such as duplicity, resistance and inside help, the motives are not so clearly defined in the new series, with some added interest insofar as the Visitors or "V"s as they are called, have been on Earth for some time. This adds to backstory in various episodes.

In about 99% of science fiction, aliens come to earth in two ways: charging in to invade, or they come in peace... so they can invade quietly. The second kind are the main problem in "V: The Complete First Season," a remake of the 1980s series/miniseries about mysterious alien Visitors who come to Earth with some nasty ulterior motives. While this remake suffers from some "Lost syndrome," it's a sleek, complex story with an intriguing cast of characters.

City-sized alien ships have appeared over twenty-nine cities worldwide, and the aliens' leader "Anna" (Morena Baccarin) declares that, "We are of peace." The Visitors offer their advanced technology to better the world, and cause massive changes -- social, religious, medical, and so on.

While hunting a terrorist cell FBI agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) stumbles across an anti-Visitor resistance -- and the shocking discovery that not only are the visitors reptilian creatures in humanoid skins, but some Visitors are hiding among us. She and the skeptical priest Father Jack (Joel Gretsch) begin forming their own little resistance cell, along with the V-in-hiding Ryan Nicholas (Morris Chestnut) who is trying to reactivate an alien rebellion known as the Fifth Column. At the same time, news anchor Chad Decker (Scott Wolf) finds himself the media ambassador of the V's, caught between ambition and his growing doubts.

But the resistance has more than Anna's cruel, duplicitous nature to deal with -- Erica's gullible son Tyler (Logan Huffman) has become a "peace ambassador" for the V's and is falling in love with Anna's daughter Lisa (Laura Vandervoort). Ryan's girlfriend is pregnant with a hybrid baby.
