When it is discovered that the aliens' planet is dying and that they have come to rape the Earth of its natural resources, the war for Earth begins.

Trivia

Much of the non-original music for the filming of V was a combination of motifs from Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" and, more notably, motifs from the fourth movement of Ludwig van Beethoven's 5th Symphony. See more »

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.
