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, presented complete and uncut in this 19 episode set. Once again, Earth is the main battleground. But now the aliens whose human guise hides their true reptillian 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.

V is a classic for its time. Not the best show ever but I certianly enjoyed it!
#10
Was ok for it's time - bit lame looking now - but good price! so hot!
#11
This is the 1 hour follow up NBC series to the original Tv movies
V, and V the final battle.

If you want some decent TV get V, and maybe the Final battle instead.
£4.99 each from HMV i think. The former is excellent and has the bonus of Ken Johnsons commentery, the latter has no extras and is inferior but far more watchable than this boxset.

V Final Battle - http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=285;5;-1;-1;-1&sku=846881

I am a massive fan of the original and even i dont own this boxset.
I suppose i might be interested now they are sub 10 quid but still have to think hard. The first 3 episodes are the best.

Best price though so hot for that reason
#12
the unfortunate thing with the the tv series is the budget went pants ... ended up as a massive "how fast can we kill the cast" session , which was a shame as the mini movies were really great
#13
yeah couldve been so much better.
Ken johnson originally worked on V the final battle, with a plan to follow with more "event" movies much like his later alien nation tv movies. NBC wanted to do things quickly and cheaply and ultimately missed a trick.

Looking fwd to the new V series when it airs.
#14
The TV series "make up" budget must have been miniscule compared to the original mini series. We are talking lizard outfits that you would find in the fancy dress shop.

Back in 1984 the "V" mini series was seen as a sensation - airing over 5 nights in 2 hour slots to spoil the BBC ratings for the Olympics if my memory serves me correct !

By the time the mini series was aired - 1985/1986 - it was syndicated to the various ITV regions and given time slots around the midnight mark - different days, different times etc. More of a schedule filler than a major TV event.
#15
Well, for all the fans out there, there is a new series on its way. Do a search on youtube.
Can't wait.
#16
I'm going to buy this, the hamster ball that was on here last week, some small rodents and heinz salad cream. It's making my forked tongue salivate at the thought of it

Yep, certainly was a sensation. I was all geared up to watch the Olympics at the time and in the end actually preferred this instead!
#18
I've seen the first episode from the new version and its ace - updated story with 21st century SFX. It should be on UK screens early next year.
#19
The SFX of the mini series - whilst big budget for the time - are indeed dated.

But back in that summer of 1984 they had me under the table!

I remember the episode where the babies were born - the first looked normal but then.........when they held it to the mother......for me it was one of the biggest shocks I have ever seen.

And if that wasn't enough when the second one came out..........

Now it all looks silly - "lame" as the kids would say - but believe me at the time I was open mouthed.

By the final episode EVERYBODY that I knew was tuning in to see what would happen. Remember in those days there were only 4 television channels and the test card took up large swathes of the airtime!

I think it was a bit of a fluke that ITV decided to air it over five nights rather than weekly but it turned out to be a masterstroke and was only done to spoil the BBC's exclusive coverage of the Olympics.

Here is the trailer. Looks good and familiar too...

There was bound to be a remake eventually - although for me Jane Badler as Diana will always be the best bad girl.

When Independence Day the movie came out in 1996 it reignited interest in "V" and just 12 years down the line people were saying how dated V looked.

Now it looks like it's Independence Day's turn to look dated!

that's Juliet from Lost in the trailer

i dont think the original two films have dated as much as the latter stuff. Mainly because the budget was better, and the scripting better. Obviously its the clothes etc that really date V. The reason the TV series was all over the schedule at 12pm was because it was
a) rubbish and
b) probably cancelled before it aired in the UK.
If KJ had gone on to do the final battle it couldve been better.
Some ideas like Martin dying at the end to save the planet in the mothership was a lot better than the "pretti nama" rubbish, Ham Tyler in a wheelchair wouldve been an interesting twist too.

Still the past is in the past. I suggest everyone get V the original movie on DVD for 4.99, its well worth it for 200 mins of good television.
#24
where did you see the 1st episode out of interest
#25
yeah i cant find any torrents where did you see the first ep?
#26

where did you see the 1st episode out of interest


Agreed. I have searched everywhere and even TV torrents doesn't have it and that has everything!
#27
its not aired yet, so unless there is a press preview copy, then i doubt we wil see it.
They are going to air the pilot at the san diego comic convention i believe,
but i imagine i am going to have to wait a while to see it even via a torrent.

cest la vie. Ordered the final battle for 4.99 before the price goes up, having previously avoided it. Wether i can venture into getting the series i am not sure.
#28
Anyone who buys V: The Original Mini Series will also want to buy V: The FInal Battle (follow on to Mini Series) as this is what we - as viewers - got in the summer of 1984 spread over 5 nights Monday to Friday. I think you can buy them in together at some retailers.

In the USA they had to wait a whole year between these two (the first aired in 1983 and the second in 1984) but we were lucky in the UK that ITV showed them all in one run.

The TV series (subject of this thread) came out 1985/1986 and ran for 19 episodes. Episode 1 of this started from the end of V:The Final Battle so the transition was seamless. However the relatively high production values soon withered out.

I work in TV and get to see shows fresh from the LA screenings even before they go out in the US.

New SCIFI shows to look out for are Flash Forward & Caprica.
