[Nathan Bates is apparently collaborating with the Visitors]
We know Bates is in bed with Diana.
Really? I did not know that.
It's a figure of speech, Willie.
With Diana... one never knows.

I love this mini-series and the one that followed, "V-The Final Battle". The special effects were really bad considering this was made 7 years after "Star Wars" but I just don't care. The story was great and I loved the characters. Is there anyone who didn't love the old grampa who survived a Nazi prison camp? Elias was awesome and Ham Tyler was just too cool. I really got the feeling that if something like that ever happened, people would behave the way they did in the movie. It seemed very realistic on an emotional level with heroism and treachery but mostly just a lot of people who were afraid to take a stand on either side. If you love movies with strong emotions and great characters, I highly recommend both movies. If you want to see great special effects...well, watch "Star Wars".
