Product description

Product Description

In V: The Series aliens pretending to be friendly, come to Earth and are received openly. The aliens have masqueraded themselves to look just like humans. When it is discovered that the aliens' planet is dying and that they have come to rape the Earth of its natural resources, the war for Earth begins. An important key to the humans' success is distinguishing the their own from the aliens.

Please note: This title only contains the 19 television series episodes from 1984. It does not include the preceeding five films (V: The Mini-Series and V: The Final Battle), or any part of the 2009 series.

Synopsis

They came for water. And for food. And as it turned out, we were the food. But humanity bravely resisted - a struggle seen in the hit miniseries V and V: The Final Battle. Yet the war continues. The heroic conflict comes to a surprising outcome in V: The Series. Once again, Earth is the main battleground. But now the aliens whose human disguise hides their true reptilian natures are wiser. They believe the secret to their survival on Earth lies in the DNA of the newly born half-human, half-spaceling Starchild. They intend to capture her. But that's something the world's Resistance Fighters cannot allow.

I have been promising myself the DVDs of this series for years, then hearing that there is going to be a remake (to be shown in 2010) I decided that the time was now.

The box contains:

V - Mini Series (1983)
V - Final Battle (1984)
V - Complete Series (1985) - 19 episodes (though only 18 were originally shown in the UK)

This was one of those programmes that when I was younger I used to stay up late for.

Created by Kenneth Johnson, it was something completely different to anything else on TV - remember this was the time of Dallas and Dynasty.

*** Possible Spoilers ***

*V*

It starts with a number of spaceships arriving over various cities around the world. The "Visitors" - who appear to be human - are lead by "John" (Richard Herd) and his Second in Command "Steven" (Andrew Prine), along with Science Officer "Diana" (Jane Badler). They "come in peace" or so they say. They offer cures for cancer, and other diseases, but never come up with anything. Journalist Mike Donovan (Marc Singer) smells a rat (or something similar) and decides to launch his own investigation into these friendly Visitors, getting what he finds to the public proves difficult and makes him a wanted man.

Meanwhile Dr Juliet Parish (Faye Grant) and some of her colleagues have become disenchanted with the visitors seeming inability to come up with the cures they promised, and the way that are taking over. They launch a mini underground movement to undermine the Visitors. As time passes they come into contact with Donovan and the truth starts to come out.

jane badler, bless her, steals the show abit, for me! yes, there're motherships, attack craft, cultural stereotypes, shoot outs, car chases, big men with guns, hitting targets unlike the a team, explosions that would enbolden even gerry anderson's action truncheon, pretty girls/heroines for the dads, beefcakes/action men, for the mums, twists and turns in the plot that have you're attention itching - to the point of must pause during bathroom breaks, but diana's (jane badler) pout-offs, with everyone she is trying to manipulate, dominate and mess over, are the stuff of legends... the state of it! this isn't star trek, babalon 5, battlestar galactica (new seasons) or firefly, when it comes to effects... no hand held, perspective pulling cgi here... but there's a good old fashioned mid 80's score, and a magic kind of, spacy soap opera, vibe, with classic b**ching, back-stabbing, and romance novel throbbings. all wrapped for safe SF. watch alone or with friends; if you remember it from the time, you'll be amazed how much you forgot - and if you are visiting V for the first time, well, good choice, earthling; because everyone should see this, at least once!

Had to admit I didn't remember this being aired, though after re-finding the original Mini series on DVD was elated to know this existed to, what a bonus!. However as previous reviewers have mentioned, this weekly sequal suffered from smaller budgets and dwindling plots, but to be honest, if you love the two mini series you should definiatly buy this. As a stand alone its camp, lots of big hair and eighties cheese, but in the context of the V universe is essential viewing. The reason I didnt give this a higher star rating was due to the quality of transfer to DVD, which to put bluntly is bad, bad, bad. It looks like its been taken from some second generation VHS copy stored in a basement for 20 years, even the theme tune is distorted to comical effect if you listen closely. This aside I reccomend this weekly series as classic V and Sci Fi viewing.

I was a big fan of 'V' back in the mid-80s and watched all the episodes fervently. This prompted me to go down memory lane with this 19 episode box-set, which continues the storyline after 'V - the miniseries' (where the alien Visitors arrive and begin taking over the planet) and 'V - The Final Battle' (where the humans defeat the Visitors using the 'red dust' toxin and capture the L.A. mothership).

Episode 1 of this box-set follows the escape of Diana, the scheming alien leader played by sultry Jane Badler, who recalls the alien fleet. She also discovers that the red dust toxin is unstable in hot places (like L.A.), which drives a second attempt at conquest and renewed hostilities with resistance movements across the globe.

I only gave this item 2 stars because it lacked the drama and tension that was so strong in the earlier miniseries and final battle. Many of the episodes had such weak plots that I actually got bored and began fast forwarding to the climax or the next episode. Even the cast looked bored - the episode with Ham Tyler leaving honestly felt like the actor (Michael Ironside) had enough of the role! There was also repeated usage of exactly the same footage (especially the alien shuttle chase scenes) throughout the series, which gave it a really cheap feel.

At the end (Episode 19), the alien leader arrives but we never see him. I remembered this from the '80s when the series was on TV but I assumed that the story would continue in another season. Season 2 was never made (unsurprisingly), which makes me wonder why Amazon called this box-set series 1. Most bizarre!

I usually refrain from giving negative reviews but, in this case, I advise all interested 'V' and/or SciFi fans to get 'V the miniseries' and 'V the Final Battle', and to avoid this 'complete series' - and yes the titles are very confusing!
