V The Mini Series


They Come In Peace - To Enslave Humankind!

Fifty spaceships, each three miles across, hover ominously above Earth's major cities. The Visitors that emerge are human like in appearance and extend the hand of friendship. Our planet's resources are just what these aliens need to survive. And for its future survival, unsuspecting humankind will need... a miracle!

Kenneth Johnson's science-fiction spectacular V mixes dynamic special effects with cliffhanger thrills. As fascist rule enslaves the globe, freedom fighters battle to save our species. Marc Singer heads an epic-sized cast of human defenders and - behind sleek uniforms and benevolent behavior - reptilian invaders. For unparalleled extraterrestrial excitement, the invaders of V are unstoppable.

Jane Badler, Michael Durrell, Faye Grant, Peter Nelson, David Packer, Neva Patterson, Tommy Petersen, Blair Tefkin, Robert Englund, Joanna Kerns, Eric Johnston.

Just Brilliant!

This series relies on a strong plot and innovate character development to maintain interest with the special effects in the background. The effects are a bit dated - but the clever adaption of the aliens coming to earth has not. Since the effects are not relied on to sell the series, you allow them to be outdated and don't let them distract you from your enjoyment. The constant depiction of the visitors makes them totally convincing and makes such an invasion of earth totally chilling.
