A year after Liberation Day, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.
The Battle begun in the Miniseries 'V' continues. The war is told from the view point of the resistance group based in Los Angeles, CA as they struggle to find weaknesses of the aliens they can exploit. In addition, not all the aliens feel their invasion was right, and also work to stop the war. Written by

The reptilian alien hybrid baby prop made a reappearance (its blue eyes changed to red) in an episode of the short-lived spin-off V (1984) TV series. Years later, George Clooney used the alien baby prop in a prank on the set of ER (1994), in a scene involving a "blue baby." See more »
When Julie is rescued by the Resistance at the Visitor Security headquarters, Stephen is seen walking with Diana behind Julie and Martin. Several shots later he is shown standing next to the building, and later he is seen arriving at the building again along with Diana. See more »
You scientific types are so easily ruffled.
And you military types are so predictable.

This was the perfect sequel to the original miniseries about the aliens who arrive on earth and establish a fascist government there, only to be met with a successful resistance movement. The cast was first-rate, as Michael Ironside was a perfect addition to Marc Singer, Robert Englund, Faye Grant, and co. The suspense and overall storyline were first-rate as well.
I loved the series when I was a kid, but like it even better now that I know more about the undertones and historical allusions. (Nazi takeover of Europe, McCarthyism, etc.) This is a must for sci-fi fans.
*** 1/2 out of ****
