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.
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.

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 ***
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.Read more ›

Hope this helps..!
This collection is excellent as you are getting all the V episodes from the TV series, plus the mini series and "the final battle". you have everything you need at a very good price.
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!
