A small resistance of rebels led by photojournalist Mike Donovan, Dr. Julie Parrish and mercenary Ham Tyler fight the Nazi-like reign.

Now that we know that the 'Visitors' are lizard like aliens, it seems odd that they continue to disguise themselves as humans, especially when they are on the mother ships. Obviously this was done to reduce makeup and effects costs, but it doesn't make sense in terms of narrative. See more »
[Nathan Bates is apparently collaborating with the Visitors]
We know Bates is in bed with Diana.
Really? I did not know that.
It's a figure of speech, Willie.
With Diana... one never knows.

Very Different To The Mini-Series And The Final Battle But Still Very Good
This series of V was very different to the Mini-Series and The Final Battle episodes. The original series was action packed but it was an allegory of the problems in Germany in the 40's when the Nazi's were stepping on people. The original series explored a lot of issues such as the fight between good and evil and the destructive nature of man.
This series did away with most of the above and instead concentrated on producing action, chases, explosions etc.
Old favourites such as Willie, Ham Tyler and Mike Donovan were back. And of course, the wicked Diana was back (looking beautiful than ever). Joining the show were the likes of Lydia who was a rival to Diana and the mysterious Charles.
The shows were very good producing loads of action. It was a good show if a little short-lived. Let's hope a follow up is done one day because the final episode did leave a lot of loose ends to be tied.
