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 »

"V" and "V: The Final Battle" were definitely two of the 80's best mini-series. It actually became a full series after "Final Battle", but those episodes never made it to video. The original two mini-series are classics, and wonderfully done. The plots are intense, the special effects are cool and were, at the time, state of the art. Even by today's standards, these are still two very exceptional pieces of work. People who like this series may also want to check out "Alien Nation".
