I have all the episodes and mini-series on VHS somewhere at my mom's house. I hope they are still good. I loved this show! I now have the DVD of V, and V the Final Battle.

V kicked ass. It was probably one of my favorite shows as a kid. I used to love it when they would pull off their human masks to show their alien lizard self underneath.

Those people were terrorists and anti-americans plain and simple as the visitors were allies of the U.S. government and had the support of democrats, republicans, law enforcement and the military. They should have all been brought up on charges of treason. The visitors graciously gave the cure for cancer and numerous other technological advances to mankind but the tin foil hat wearers made up bullshit stories attacking the new friends to humanity.

[female alien disrobes, revealing a truly STACKED body with one of the finest asses ever seen in a sci-fi show] [Male human (don't ask me to remember cast names from a series that old!) says "You sure don't LOOK like a lizard!"} I'd probably watch the series again if it were on TV, but I'm not sure I'd go out and buy the DVD.

Hmm, cool I wasn't allowed to watch the show as a child for some reason, and I've never seen it aired on anychannels I get. Is there alot of civilian gun usage? Sounds great, love this kind of show/scifi. If it was shown on channels I got currently I would love to watch the old ones and I'll certainly be looking forward to the new ones. Hope they PC it up and negate gun ownership, etc.

ANYTHING with Michael Ironside is cool!

Several cast members of the miniseries and the weekly series, including Marc Singer, Faye Grant, Jane Badler and Robert Englund, could reprise their roles in the telefilm if it goes into production.

I only vaguely remember it. The story line sounds a lot like "Soylent Green", where the aliens were sending earthlings back to their planet to become food (unbeknownst to the humans).

V related story. Years ago I was watching Leno and I think it was Anthony Edwards that was on (this was when ER was in its first couple of seasons). Anyway he had a clip. Seems the prop guy that worked on ER also did V. There was a scene where a woman was giving birth and the prop guy slipped the baby lizard from V under the table. Only the actor “delivering” the “baby” knew about it. The actress “giving birth” goes through the obligatory panting and screaming and the “doctor” then pulls this hideous, slime covered human/lizard “baby” out from between the mom’s legs and shows it to everyone in the room like everything is normal. Half the people start screaming and run from the set in total panic and the other half just completely lose it in hysterical laughter. It was one of the funniest outtakes I’ve ever seen.

I can defeat that with one movie mention: Highlander 2. But I do have to admit that he was rather cool in it. Subway scene, picks up small child and asks, "I bet you've always wanted to drive one of these things, eh?" Boy answers in the affirmative. "Me too."

Just once I'd love to see a sci-fi flick where the aliens come to earth be a tad bit realistic...where the humans get the mother loving shit beat out of them...and we are wiped clean from the surface. I mean, let us give one hell of a, albeit futile, effort...but let's be honest here. If an alien intelligence has the wherewithall to get here and are hell bent on kicking our ass, our ass is surely gonna get kicked.

Possibly, but it's equally possible that we could defeat an alien invasion by sheer force of numbers. We've got six billion people and an incredible amount of hardware, weaponry, and resources to throw at such an enemy. People become incredibly powerful when they decide that it is acceptable to die for a cause, especially if they do so in large numbers. Witness any suicide bomber in Israel. Now imagine suicide bombers attacking alien bases with suitcase nukes and nukes concealed in anything from coffins to cargo transport aircraft. Imagine if every nuclear capable power in the world decided to apply their nuclear inventories to the problem of eradicating invading aliens. Technology be damned, those aliens probably have only limited abilities to resist being vaporized by a few thousand warheads that are all in the multi-megaton range. Energy is energy and it takes energy to control energy. I can't imagine them surviving a thermonuclear fireball in the mulitiple megaton range no matter what they've got in the way of gadgets. CJ

Wouldn't you knock out such weaponry BEFORE starting the planetary invasion? Would they even bother with an invasion? If they have the tech to get here and make it a hobby of killing a species just to watch 'em die, they would eliminate our nukes before we'd know what happened. I dont mean to turn this into a mighty-mouse vs. superman thread...but let's be realistic. If an alien race came here in the numbers found in V or...say...Independance day...kiss our sorry ass good-bye. It'd be tantamount to the Nimitz going back in time as in The Final Countdown...though the technology spread would be on a much much grander scale.

If a race capable of faster than light travel came to earth they would have sufficient technology to neutralize the effects of all current weapons systems. Humans would end up as pets, slaves or just simply wiped off of the earth like vermin.

Yes, when the civilians finally figure out what's going on they raid a NG armory and steal some serious firepower. With the help of some ex-soldiers they obtain rudementary training, the previously mentioned armor piercing loads and then it's rock and roll time for the rest of the series. Doctors, teachers, displaced cops, a gardner, you name it, even (gasp) journalists. A true mix of citizen soldiers. Cool mini-series, but I think the ending really stunk. I thought of much better ways to end the show. The short lived 'regular' series sucked too. Someone help me with this one: I vagely remember a scene in which a woman which previously didn't like guns is caught in a massacre. She reluctently picks up a pistol, looks at it, and starts defiantly shooting at the aliens.

NO! [}:D] Mike Donovan (Mark Singer): "You sure don't look like an Iguana!" Alien babe: "What?" Mike Donovan: "Bad taste..." How do I know? I just introduced my wife and little brother to the series via the DVD yesterday, and we talked about how much better the show could be done now with the proliferation of high quality digital effects for cheap.

Actually, that was Dr. Juliet "Julie" Parrish, played by Faye Grant. She became the leader of the resistance, even though she doubted herself. She made a big thing about being a scientist, not a soldier, but she rose to the occasion when it was necessary. Her scene at the end of the original series parallels the first scene from the series, where the leader of the resistance fighters in El Salvador shoots down a helicopter with his 1911, even while the helicopter is coming in shooting at him. He stands his ground and squeezes off rounds until the helicopter comes down. Very cheesey. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

However, PETA gets upset and launches worldwide protest. This gives the Lizards time to regroup and launch a devastating counter attack. They then win. As a celebration they round up all the PETA people and then BBQ them.
