In the first two mini-series, the Visitors spoke with an electronically modulated voice. The sound processing, however, was dropped for the ongoing series. This created a continuity problem with the two mini-series as the Visitors were able to infiltrate human strongholds and vice-versa without their different voices giving them away. 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".
