'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

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.

Introducing...Laura Vandervoort

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Nov 16th 2009 2:52PM
How many gorgeous blondes can come out of Canada? Many, it seems.

The latest is 25-year-old Laura Vandervoort, who plays the beautiful extra-terrestrial Lisa on hit sci-fi series 'V'. Vandervoort was born and raised in Canada, and she has had roles in many of the formative TV shows of our youth, including 'Goosebumps', 'Are You Afraid of the Dark', and 'Road to Avonlea.' It seems the young lady has finally come into her own as an alien, and the buzz south of the border is starting to grow.

Some cast for SyFy's Riverworld and The Phantom

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 7th 2009 2:04PM
Tahmoh PenikettSci Fi (or SyFy, whenever that changeover is taking place) has cast some of its upcoming projects. Battlestar Galactica and Dollhouse's Tahmoh Penikett and Smallville's Laura Vandevoort has been cast in Riverworld and Desperate Housewive's Ryan Carnes has been cast as the lead character in The Phantom.

This is either a sign that Dollhouse is destined for only one season or Tahmoh Penikett's character of Paul Ballard is not going to survive beyond the first season. I'm hoping it is more of the latter than the former.

Smallville: Bloodline

by Brad Trechak, posted Nov 6th 2008 11:02PM
Smallville(S08E08) Kara is back, fulfilling Laura Vandervoort's one-episode obligation for this season. She looked like she stepped right out of one of the Mad Max movies. The only question I had is how they would quickly dispose of the character after reintroducing her and I admit that they threw me on that one. I figured she'd die in the Phantom Zone, but it would somewhat diminish the spin-off possibilities if they did that. The current tactic of sending her on an indefinite mission so they could bring her back if they wanted works much better.

Supergirl to appear in one episode of Smallville this season

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 29th 2008 1:03PM
SmallvilleDespite being a regular in season 7, Laura Vandervoort is scheduled to appear in only a single episode of season 8 of Smallville. Sorry to spoil those who haven't seen the season 7 finale by now, but considering her Kara/Supergirl character was trapped in the Phantom Zone at the end of the season, it's nice of the producers to allow her storyline to end on a more positive note (one can hope).

Ms. Vandervoort also mentioned at the Toronto FanExpo this past weekend that there was consideration of spinning off her character to her own show. While that would have been a good idea, the ship sailed on a Smallville spin-off after season three. Also, a series about a super-powered blonde girl has been done already with a show about a certain Vampire Slayer.

I already have low expectations for season eight of Smallville (particularly given the radical change in cast). Without the regular presence of the rather attractive Kara, my expectations remain the same.

Helen SlaterSupergirl, meet Supergirl. That is sort of what will happen in episode six of the upcoming season of Smallville when Helen Slater, who played the woman of steel in the 1984 movie Supergirl, will guest star on The CW hit series confirms Sci Fi Wire.

It was announced a few weeks ago that Smallville was adding the character of Supergirl to its show and that Laura Vandervoort was cast in the role. So what role will Slater play? Spoilers after the jump!

And Smallville's Supergirl is...

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 12th 2007 8:01AM
Laura VandervoortA month after announcing that Supergirl would join The CW's Smallville as a new series regular, the network announced who will be playing her. TV Guide reveals that Clark Kent's cousin Kara will be played by Canadian Laura Vandervoort.

Vandervoort fits the description from the Supergirl casting call: Caucasian 19-year-old who must be blond, smart, beautiful and funny. However, she is 22-years-old but since Tom Welling is a 30-year-old playing a teen, I guess fans will allow the actress to be three years older than the character!
