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.

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.

Format: DVD
I absolutely love V, the original mini series is a sci fi classic, one of the best sci fi shows ever made. The regular series that followed, wasn't as good as the mini series but was good fun none the less. The remake, while not as good as the original mini series, is at least better than the regular series. A good cast, Morena Baccarin from Firefly and Stargate SG1 is gorgeous and evil, just like the Visitor's leader should be and does a very good job as does the rest of the cast, some of whom may be familliar to you from other shows. It has simmilarities with the original series, the ships arriving in the pilot is lifted from the mini series. The pilot episode is absolutely spectaular, one of the best pilot episodes of a sci fi series ever, but the rest of the series while very good doesn't quite match up to it's excellent potential, but the finale is excellent and will leave you wanting more.
