'V' Recap: 2x01 - 'Red Rain' Brings The Drama And Keeps It Coming

1/5/2011 10:08am EST
“V” returned last night, to my everlasting joy and entertainment. In case you missed season one, let me give you a brief recap: in this adaptation of a mid-80s TV series, reptilian aliens calling themselves Visitors come to Earth, looking like humans. They seem helpful, sweet and peaceful, but a small section of resistance fighters (lead by Elizabeth Mitchell, best known as Juliet from Lost) band together to take out the aliens and keep Earth safe.

When we last left our valiant alien fighters, they had wiped out Anna’s unborn army of reptilian Visitors and Anna retaliated by turning the ...

'V' Recap: 'Fruition'

5/13/2010 3:24pm EDT
V is almost finished with its first season run. The finale runs next Tuesday, and that will also be around the time that ABC announces what shows it plans to drop or renew. Right now V could go either way, but personally I would suggest they give the show another season. ABC will likely drop their other sci-fi Flashforward, which turned out to be more of a disappointment than expected, and it would be a shame to lose both of these shows without giving one of them a chance. V has picked up the pace in the past few weeks and it definitely has potential. With the plight of humanity looking mor...

V Recap: 'Heretic's Fork'

4/28/2010 8:48pm EDT
V Recap
So now the big secret about Valerie's pregnancy is out, and the V's are not happy. Anna looks scarier than usual when she calls the leaders of all the other ships and tells them the baby must be found. Apparently she thinks if humans know about the breeding, they can start specifically breeding hybrids to match the V's off. Does that mean hybrids could even be dangerous enough? And it's just a baby, unless it grows really fast. Is this the lizard version of the Twilight baby? It seems so because Anna's little soldier babies might be ready to hunt down some human meat. Run, Valerie, run!


'V' Recap -'We Can't Win'

4/23/2010 3:45pm EDT
Previously on V, Ryan's girlfriend figured out he's not who he said he is, Tyler found out he may not be his father's son after all, and Father Hotness asked Chad Decker to not be such a Machiavellian jerk. John May turned out to be Sam Anders (Michael Trucco from Battlestar Galactica), Anna gave birth to creepy soldier egg babies, and Ryan apparently killed him. Or not? Who knows.

Erica swears up and down that she was only with Tyler's father, so she has no idea how the DNA doesn't match, and this sounds like a fun mystery they'll hopefully answer soon. Could he be the first V-Human hybri...

'V' Recap - 'Welcome To The War'

3/31/2010 4:10pm EDT
V's back after an incredibly long hiatus, which means they are required to cram as much information into the 'previously' section as they can. Granted ABC only showed four episodes of the show before taking a four month break, but that's still a great deal of plot to cover. Basically, the Visitors arrive on Earth in the form of gorgeous, peace-loving humanoids. They cure illnesses and solve wars, they say they want to help protect humanity, and of course this means they are evil, evil, evil. We were introduced to FBI Agent Erica Evans, played by the marvelous Elizabeth Mitchell, as she trie...

'V' Recap:'The Visitors Are Here'

11/4/2009 12:11pm EST
ABC's "V" is finally here, one of the most highly anticipated shows of the season, and it is coming out strong. The show is a remake of a sci-fi miniseries that lost a great deal of its popularity once it turned into a regular TV show. It looks like ABC hopes to reboot and renew the fanbase, so everyone who loves Nazi-like reptile aliens with a secret plan to take over the Earth ... be prepared. The Visitors are here.

It is a quiet normal day on Earth. FBI Agent Erica (aka Juliet from "Lost") wakes up to feel the world shaking a little, and she goes to check on her teenage son Tyler. ...

Two Sci-Fi Shows We Can't Wait For This Fall: 'V' & 'FlashForward'

7/9/2009 10:08am EDT
Science fiction has taken somewhat of an upward turn in recent years, becoming attractive to more than the small cultish fan groups and growing to the universal mainstream.

With the success of shows like "Lost," "Fringe," "Heroes," "Battlestar Galactica" and "X-Files," sci-fi is steadily becoming worth investing in by the bigger networks.

Starting in the fall, ABC is releasing two new big sci-fi shows to the mainstream to see if we have a taste for it, and if you're any kind of sci-fi fan at all, these are the new shows you should be looking forward to.


Although an exact da...

A Few Must-See TV Shows This Fall (See Clips!)

6/9/2009 11:40am EDT
Last week's TV upfronts brought some re-vamps and a whole lot of raised eyebrows, but never fear, is here to sort through the soon-to-be-canceled masses and select a few must-see gems.

Melrose Place Reboot

The CW may have angered some Jason Dohring fans by not picking up his political drama for Fall 2009 - instead opting to choose just another revamp to add to the line-up. The new "Melrose Place" may follow the same formula as the new version of Beverly Hills 90210: campy primetime soap relationship drama set in the shiny, pretty people part of Los Angeles. It will fe...
