Trivia:
The V stands for visitor (and in the original series it also stood for victory). The 5th column is a well known phrase meaning 'a group of people who clandestinely undermine a larger group such as a nation from within' and has its origins in the Spanish Civil war, when four columns of Franco troops marching towards Madrid where assisted by others from within the city. These where later called the "fifth column" in a radio address.See more »

Riveting!!! Best premiere I've ever seen!!, 3 November 2009
Author: johnnymacbest from United States

Having not been familiar with the original "V" the series by creator Kenneth Johnson, and upon first glance at the previews and TV spots, I gotta say that what I just witnessed was the best pilot episode I've ever seen. With it's many parallels to our social climate in the world today, the new series plays on our fears and perceptions of those who are strangers to us who at first are well-meaning and docile but their ulterior motives are hidden underneath. That gives "V" verisimilitude while still retaining a Sci-Fi setting. I was tense and on the edge of my seat throughout the proceedings of what the characters are experiencing as the "visitors" announce their presence to the world. I suppose some will say that the new "V" is not as good as the original, but I for one, enjoy this new version and will be tuning in to see how the events unfold and how profoundly their effects will have on those embroiled in this event that may change the face of mankind forever.
