Quotes

Pamela: Diana, sex for favors is as old as ambition. And sex is much too fragile a platform to support your ambition.
Diana: You seem to have done well for yourself.
Pamela: That's because I've controlled my ambition. You might reflect that your... lover... has sent you 56 trillion miles away from him.
[beat]
Pamela: Hardly an indication that he can't bear to be apart from you.

v vs the resistance
3 April 2010 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

i think i loved this one just as much if not more than the first V movie, in this one you get to finally see Michael Ironside in action,, i love how he calls Mike,, "do gooder",, or gooder,, it's hilarious, he stole the show for me and he was only in last 2 episodes of the total 3 for the final battle.. yeah i like star wars and buck rogers,, but for a short series and a couple of movies,, V just rocked on all 8 cylinders for me,, Jane Badler , kicked butt as the alien commander,, Julie Parrish is gorgeous, especially in the conversion chamber in the spandex outfit,, Mike Donavan is so likable is our "hero" Willie, is a V,, but very cool and part of the 5th column, a group of V traitors helping the resistance,, scenes are set mostly all in Los Angeles. the battle scenes are fantastic, and this still rated in my opinion as one of the best TV movies ever made along with the first V.
