A 1983 mini-series gets a 2011 make-over, more sinister and creepy than ever. As "V" begins, hunormous space ships appear over twenty-nine major cities around the world, and Anna, leader of the technologically advanced alien species piloting the spacecraft, assures terrified earthlings she and her people come in peace. Of course, Anna is lying. Anna goes on to explain that she and her extra-terrestrial pals need just a few Earth resources, and they willingly will trade their medical and electronic wizardry for the few items on their shopping lists. FBI counter-terrorism ace Erica Evans quickly sees through the deception, gaining a very few powerful allies as the affable visitors curry favor among the locals. "V" writers, directors, and producers clearly understand the dynamics of terror and suspense, and they especially know how to plot a cliff-hanger. "V" attracted legions of loyal viewers during its premier season in spring, 2010, and it left thousands of beguiling plot possibilities for its 2011 season. Every "V" viewer anticipates the inevitable, imminent Anna-Erica smackdown, and Earth's future turns on the outcome"”"appointment television" for sure.
