As realistic as you can get, it's show about lizard aliens
Before Alien Nation, before Independence Day, there was V. A race of human looking extraterrestrials arrive on earth. These 'vistors' led by alien Anna come in peace, however, behind her smile is a sinister plan to take over the world.

The latest 'reimagining' of V is a competent rework of the original 80's TV show. Despite some ropey CGI effects, the story, characters and script carry some weight, there are shades of grey, not everything is black and white... Unorthodox alliances, double crossings, morale choices and sacrifice are just some of the themes amongst a cloak and dagger alien invasion. There is action, drama and of course it's played possibly as realistic as you can get considering it a show about lizard aliens. There are hard hitting surprises but the majority of the series falls in to predicable melodrama.

Jane Badler the original female protagonist appears in season 2 as 'Diana' which is a nice nod for fans of the predecessor albeit as a different character with the same name. And also Marc Singer gives a cameo. Notable are actors Scott Wolf and Laura Vandervoort. Worth mentioning is Anna's right hand man played by Morena Baccarin and tough guy Kyle Hobbes played by Charles Mesure.

Evil executives at ABC have cancelled the series after season/series 2 which is a crying shame as there were plenty of places V could have been taken with the right story writers and good characters already established such as FBI agent Erica Evans, played by Elizabeth Mitchell and Joel Gretsch as Father Jack Landry.

It's said that it ends on a cliff hanger but that depends on who's side your on, there is one winner, if no more are made... Worth seeing, I'll now finish this sentence as abruptly as ABC's cancellation.
