Trivia

Chris Farber was originally supposed to have the last name of "Faber", but Michael Ironside kept pronouncing "Farber", so they changed it. (This is why scripts and books will often have Faber rather than Farber). See more »

Goofs

At various points throughout all 3 parts of the Mini-Series, the vocal reverberation effect that is supposedly one of the only ways a Visitor can be detected as not human is either very low or completely missing from the sound mix. This is present on both the original 1984 broadcast as well as the DVD release. See more »

Quotes

John: Pamela always said you were ambitious, but she underestimated you.
Diana: You stupid, feeble man! If it hadn't been for me, you'd still be trying to decide where to land on this planet! You and your petty, idiotic intrigue, wondering who was in charge! *I* was in charge! I directed this entire operation, while you made pretty speeches! I had the power, and you wore the crown!
John: [with contempt] A crown. It's yours now, Diana. Enjoy your reign.
John: [walking away] Queen of a poisoned realm.

Fantastic Conclusion To V:The Mini Series
24 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

V:The Final Battle is an exciting conclusion to the battle between the visitors and the resistance which started in the mini-series.

Things get really tense during this series as the war steps up a notch. The visitors are prepared to destroy the earth to further their aims whilst the resistance are preparing plans to rid the Earth of the aliens forever.

This series has everything-shocks, surprises, betrayals and plenty of action. As for the ending, wow!

If you liked the Mini-Series, you will love it's conclusion. Back in the late 80's I watched the entire Mini-Series and The Final Battle in one go with some friends-that's how great it was.
