Trivia

In a massive media campaign before the V (1984) series aired, posters with the line "The Visitors Are Our Friends" appeared in subways around the United States - just as they did in the first part of the mini-series. Days before V: Liberation Day (1984) aired, each poster was spray-painted with a bright red "V" exactly as was done in the show. See more »

Goofs

When Mike boards the mothership a second time to get more information about the Visitors, he is seen with a laser weapon in its holster. However when he enters the mothership's water storage area, it disappears. See more »

Quotes

John: The Secretary General referred to me as the "Supreme Commander", actually I'm just sort of an Admiral, responsible for this small fleet around your planet.
Dr. Ben Taylor: This *small* fleet? Yeah right...

The best thing to ever hit the TV screens
9 January 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

What more can I say..... V was simply a superb piece of work. Great special effects, great story line and a great cast. Good luck to Kenny Johnson as he tries to get V: The Next Generation off the ground. It's going to be great to see V back on the screens after over 20 years.
