V: The Complete First Season
Review by Suzanne 11/17/10
I was in college when the original movie and series "V" first
aired, and I watched them religiously. The series was not as good as the movie,
but it had some interesting parts. There wasn't a lot of scifi on TV back then,
so we were desperate for anything.
I wasn't sure how they were going to make the new series work because the
surprises of the original series are already known. Part of the big shock of the
movie was that the aliens are not really nice and here to help us - they're
really lizard people who want to eat us! So that whole surprise aspect was gone.
Fortunately they did find other ways to be entertaining. They did a pretty good
job of updating the original story with better acting, writing, and special
effects. I enjoyed watching it last season, and it's good to have the DVD set
because I missed a few episodes!
The DVD set is also loaded with extras. It has the usual commentary by the
show's writers and producers, and some unaired scenes. It has many "behind the
scenes" features, including one about the development of the show, one about
makeup, one about the actors, and one about visual effects. They were all very
enjoyable, like the series.
Any scifi fan should love this show and this DVD set!! It is great. I can't wait
for the return of the show.
