This series features the characters from the two mini-series about aliens coming to Earth claiming to be friends but in reality have an ulterior motive. The aliens may have been beaten in the mini-series but there are still a lot of them out there. In this series, Nathan Bates, the industrialist who manufactures the biological weapon that was used to defeat the aliens, wants to get his hands on the aliens' technology, so that he could profit from it, makes a deal with Diana, the alien leader. Rebel leaders, Mike Donovan, Ham Tyler, and Julie Parish know that Diana can't be trusted, so they are constantly trying to figure out what Diana is up to and stop her.Written by

Now that we know that the 'Visitors' are lizard-like aliens, it seems pointless that they continue to disguise themselves as humans, or continue to use their human names, especially when they are on the motherships. Obviously this was done to reduce makeup and effects costs, but it doesn't make sense in terms of narrative. See more »
You know, I've never lost in mortal combat.
Idiot. If you had, you'd be dead.

Watching "V" has become an Event at our house. We have the entire miniseries and TV series on video (thanks to having the Sci-Fi Channel and Primestar/DirecTV). Over Independence Day, 2000, beginning at 430 am Monday, July 3rd and concluding at 530 pm, Tuesday, July 4th, we watched the entire miniseries and all 19 episodes of the subsequent TV series! It was GREAT! I agree with those who says it's better than the movie Independence Day. Some big-budget producer or director (like George Lucas or Stephen Spielburg) ought to take this great sci-fi adventure and do it up right with a proper conclusion! It would be great to get Marc Singer, Robert Englund, Faye Grant, Michael Ironside, Jane Badler and all the other great actors and actresses (or others who would properly fill,the roles) (as well as all those in the production credits) who worked so hard on this and give this production what it (and we) truly deserves!! So, if any of you are reading this -- "let's do it!"
