V: The Complete First Season showed up on my desk for review. I was a big fan of the original miniseries and rather lukewarm on the old series that followed. Now V has been rebooted but managed to keep all that was key to the success of the original series. It's a show not so much about aliens and a first contact that proves that, if it's is too good to be true it probably is. Instead, V deals with issues that we face every day -- who do we trust, who do we believe, do we take everything on faith or do we question authority. The Visitors want to help us and take care of us, sharing their knowledge -- but there is a price. There is always a price and this one may be too high, but will the human race realize it before it is too late. From official release/information:
Product Description: The Visitors are among us. In a single shared moment, they appear in every major city in the world, promoting a message of peace. They want to share their knowledge of technology; they want us to unite. And they are counting on a very important component of human nature: devotion. At first considered a threat, the Visitors -- or V's -- quickly become a fascination. But when FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans discovers what lurks beneath the alarmingly human exterior of the V's, resisting this new world has never been more important -- and never has there been more at stake. It truly is the dawning of a new day.
