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

(S01E08) "Your girl's got a baby lizard in her terrarium?" - Kyle to Ryan

Somewhere in the past few episodes, 'V' has gotten really good. I've always loved the show -- and haven't watched the original series yet, so can't compare -- but I found myself waiting impatiently to see what would happen in this episode. And also see how much scarier Anna could get. I swear she gets scarier every week. She's one scary lizard-chick.

'V' - 'John May' Recap

V, John May
(S01E07) "Let them have this one victory, because I'm about to deliver them a thousand defeats." - Anna, before she sinks into the shiny pool with her little eggs.

Hells bells, Ryan may be a good guy now, but he wasn't always that way. In fact, he was pretty nasty back in the day. When he and the gang went to track down John May's communication device, Ryan spilled the beans to John's stepson James about what really happened ten years earlier. John May's suicide note was a fake.

Oh, and by the way, James, that girl you're hanging out with? Under that human skin, she looks like the Vaal from the planet Gamma Trianguli VI on 'Star Trek.' Hmmm...

'V' - 'Pound of Flesh' Recap

V, Pound of Flesh
(S01E06) "It's time we told him the truth about who he really is." - Joe to Erica, about Tyler

Well, who is he?! Is he supposed to be some sort of warrior a la John Connor, who'll lead the resistance against the aliens? I have no idea, but can't wait to find out. Based on the fact that Tyler seems enamored with the Visitors, it's hard to imagine him as a leader of the resistance. The dynamics will have to change with Lisa; Erica's plan to hide Tyler away at his dad's isn't working.

I've been thinking about where I'd fall in the alien vs. humans war, and I'd definitely be a member of the Fifth Column -- organizing meetings, gathering weapons, training people to fight ... I have no tolerance for any sort of manipulation, and doubt that I'd fall prey to Anna's bliss. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

'V' - 'Welcome to the War' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 31st 2010 4:20AM
Elizabeth Mitchell, 'V'
Remember this show? If the ratings results for the return of 'FlashForward' are any indication of things to come, the answer appears to be "No." A difference between 'FlashForward' and 'V,' though, is that while 'FlashForward' delivered ten episodes, which many found to be disappointing, 'V' has only had four.

While ratings did decline over the course of the four episodes, the reaction to them wasn't as clearly negative. For the most part, the jury seemed to be out. The question now is whether or not the show has been out of circulation too long to recover with these remaining nine episodes of the first season.

It's been four months since a new episode of 'V,' but to the credit of the vision, it doesn't feel as if we've been gone that long at all. Tonight's mid-season premiere certainly brought plenty of exciting moments in the growing war between the Visitors and the human race, as well as a nod to a classic 'V' moment.

The Visitors Are Back: 'V' Cast Talks About Show's Return (VIDEO)

V cast

Moms rule on the first season of ABC's 'V,' the flashy remake of the 1983 miniseries. In the show's fall premiere, alien ships filled with "Visitors" appeared over Earth, proclaiming peace and promising truly universal healthcare.

A short four-episode run ended in cliffhangers galore -- FBI agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) found out her son Tyler was on the mothership with head Visitor Anna (Morena Baccarin) and her daughter Lisa (Laura Vandervoort); Father Jack Landry (Joel Gretsch) was stabbed by a V; reporter Chad Decker (Scott Wolf) discovered he had a potentially fatal brain aneurysm; and Ryan (Morris Chestnut), a V posing as human, learned his girlfriend (Lourdes Benedicto) was pregnant with his half-alien baby.

Review: V - It's Only the Beginning

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 25th 2009 8:46AM
V: It's Only the Beginning(S01E04) Well, that's it until March 2010. The most important thing that V could do this week was to leave us hanging on the edge of our seats as to what's coming next. If the idea was to give us a sense of sheer hopelessness in the face of the power of the Visitors, then that's what we did.

More importantly, we got to see the genesis of the Resistance movement led by Jack, Ryan and Erica. It makes an even more powerful figure when you consider that at this point there are exactly four people -- at least that we're following -- taking on 29 Visitor ships with technology and power almost beyond our imagining.

Everyone loves a scrappy underdog, and you couldn't ask for much more than that. But it was great seeing them take some of their first strikes against the Visitors as a unit. This is the struggle, against near impossible odds, that will keep us glued to our seats.

V: A Bright New DayWhat happened on this week's 'V' episode, 'A Bright New Day' -- in 100 words or less.

Tensions mount as Anna secures 100 diplomatic visas, then smooths things over with newly widowed Mary Faulkner "so she doesn't infect others."

Erica is paired with a Visitor to track down the source of a death threat. The shooter is turned over to the Visitors, as Erica discovers a room full of surveillance videos, transmitting from the V's jackets.

Ryan meets with Cyrus to find John May, head of the Fifth Column, as Dale wakes up in the mothership. Erica interrupts a tryst between Tyler and Lisa, who returns to tell Anna -- her mother -- that "Tyler's the one."

Review: V - A Bright New Day

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 18th 2009 10:29AM
V: A Bright New Day(S01E03) When you're mounting a resistance against an alien presence that way outclasses you in technology, and even outclasses you in propaganda and being good-looking, you're going to need help, and preferably of the "inside" variety. With V scheduled to go on a long hiatus after next week's episode, it's important that the resistance come together by then.

While we made good progress this episode, and learned some more good information, I fear they won't get us to a compelling hook before they go into hibernation for the winter. People will forget about this show if we don't get hooked in good next week. Unless ABC wants to promote its relaunch like another new series, they need to grab us by the jowls and sink their teeth in ... or at least unhinge our jaws and cram a guinea pig of awesome down our gullets.

7 Ways to Fix the New 'V'

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 17th 2009 2:26PM
It's still too early to tell whether the reimagined 'V' will be a hit or not, since only a handful of episodes have aired to date -- but a nearly 30% decline in viewership (to a still-respectable 10.7 million) from the premiere to second episode could indicate the show is in trouble.

Reviews of the new series starring Elizabeth Mitchell, Joel Gretsch, Scott Wolf, and Morena Baccarin have generally been favorable, but critics also argue the show feels rushed and doesn't really offer much that's new from the original aside from superficial things such as tone, pacing and effects. Yes, the acting is in a totally different galaxy, but is that enough to make the new series a success? We think not. And while we still think the series has plenty of potential, it could stand for some improvement. Here are seven geeked-out ways to make 'V' the kick-ass show it deserves to be:

Review: V - There Is No Normal Anymore

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 11th 2009 12:46PM
Morena Baccarin(S01E02) See, now things are starting to make more sense. The important thing, as a fan of the old V, is to remember that this is a whole new kind of war. The Visitors aren't coming down in bright red suits with funny voices. Instead they've been infiltrating our society for years, possibly decades.

The question of why Erica wouldn't just go straight to her bosses at the FBI with what she knows is self-explanatory when you consider that her partner of seven years was a Visitor. They look and act like us, and they could be any one of us. So who do you trust takes on a whole new meaning.

I think it's a smart move to establish more of a guerrilla war against the Visitors. And now that the one resistance cell Erica and Jack found has been scattered to the wind, it's a matter of starting over. But, as seen with the developments this week, it may be a race to uncover the truth before it's too late.

Elizabeth Mitchell Gets Feisty and Talks 'V' Showdowns and Returning to 'Lost'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Nov 10th 2009 7:45PM
Elizabeth Mitchell, 'V'Elizabeth Mitchell has quickly become every geek's dream girl. Not only is she out for alien blood in ABC's new hit series 'V,' but she's also reprising her role as Juliet, the bomb-detonating bad girl gone good, for the final season of 'Lost.'

And did we mention she's positively lovely in person? That's a pretty amazing trifecta of awesomeness right there.

AOL TV visited the set of 'V' in Vancouver to chat with all of the cast members -- who were wrapping up the fourth and final installment of this first pod of episodes -- including the busy, multi-tasking Ms. Mitchell. While she wouldn't give too much away, she did talk about her character's feisty attitude, trigger temper and the "painful" battle to come.

Read our Q&A to get the full scoop on her inevitable showdown with V queen Anna and why you won't want to miss the first two minutes of the second episode. And if you're dying to hear about her return to 'Lost,' we've got a little tease of that too ...

EXCLUSIVE: 'V' Star Elizabeth Mitchell Dispels Rumors of Show Being Retooled

by Bryan Reesman, posted Nov 8th 2009 3:21PM
Many sci-fi fans were ecstatic at the arrival of 'V' last week -- it became the biggest scripted debut pilot of the fall season -- even as some hardcore fans from back in the day were cringing at what the reboot will bring.

And yet despite the premiere's success, a persistent rumor has swirled that producers are retooling the show. Scott Rosenbaum has replaced Scott Peters as showrunner and executive producer of 'V,' while executive producer Jeff Bell has left; hence, there will be no episodes between December and March or April. One other reason that the show's taking a hiatus is to avoid competition with the Winter Olympics broadcasts -- but some people are presuming that the show is in trouble.

Star Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays heroic FBI agent Erica Evans, set the record straight exclusively for AOL TV.
