I loved the original sci-fi series V, that aired during the early 1980s. I was sad when the series ended with a totally unresolved cliffhanger, but I was ecstatic when I saw the ads for the 2009 reboot.
While the original series took place in Los Angeles, this series was set in New York. It kind of started out a little slow, and the execution was a little bland, but I really started to enjoy it as the series progressed.
I just loved Morena Baccarin as the evil Visitor queen Anna. She was stunningly beautiful but lethal, and Morena played this role to perfection!
I also loved Laura Vandervoot as Anna's daughter Lisa, and the future queen of the Visitors. It was also nice to see V alumni from the original series star on the show as well, and I particularly loved Jane Badler's portrayal of Anna's mother.
It was awesome to see Marc Singer from the original series star as a top ranking member of the Project Aries resistance movement as well. And Elizabeth Mitchell as Erica Evans, a FBI counter-terrorism agent, was a nice touch.
Season 2 showed a lot of promise, and I was very sad when they cancelled the show. Hopefully we'll get another reboot in the future, that won't be quite so short-lived.
