Trivia

Kenneth Johnson, the creator of the original V (1983) mini-series, supervised the writing of the sequel but left Warner Brothers Television over creative differences before it was produced. See more »

Goofs

At various points throughout all 3 parts of the Mini-Series, the vocal reverberation effect that is supposedly one of the only ways a Visitor can be detected as not human is either very low or completely missing from the sound mix. This is present on both the original 1984 broadcast as well as the DVD release. See more »

Quotes

Ham Tyler: The Visitors came here to suck us dry, and when they're finished with this planet, they're gonna take it like an empty beer can and toss it over their shoulder.

4 July 2003 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This was a marvelous follow-up to one of the best TV mini series of all time. Most of the original cast returns, and the human team led by Marc Singer and Faye Grant lead their squad against the Visitors intent on world domination. Michael Ironside's character was a perfect addition to the cast, as he provides the arrogant tough-guy role the good guys needed. If you liked the first one, you'll love this one. I guarantee it. You will never forget the childbirth scene in this film.
