Anyone remember this classic series of the 80's?
Diana eating lol
Oh yeah, I remember. It had the 3 D's:
It was great for its time and the lizard babys tongue always scared me!
My parents would never let me stay up, to watch it.
V was absolutely amazing. I found out about it a few years ago and picked up the miniseries on DVD. Even for 80's SFX, the whole thing was really well-executed. Great moment in sci-fi, if you ask me.
I was very scared too with lizard babys!, and I remember that alien/human little girl..
oh, I remember Robert Englund in the series..
I have it on DVD, actually. Damn, the main character looks like Kevin Bacon.
I remember as a kid that the series really freaked me out, but I loved every moment of it!
I just got through watching both miniseries a few times a couple months ago. I still find it to be as great a TV series now as it was in the 80's when I saw it originally. It's basically a modern (well, back in the 80's) Nazi vs. the world story. It had such great character development despite some of the actual acting being a little wanting and over the top at times.
Remember there are 2 parts to the miniseries (2 DVD sets): V: The Miniseries & V: The Final Battle. Then you have V: the TV series which wasn't very successful. I believe Michael Ironside was the only actor to reprise his role in the TV series.
Can you tell I'm a geek for this show?
They repeated V over here in the UK a couple of months ago. And, just as when it first aired, I was glued to every episode.
NOTHING like that had been done before on TV; it was a huge event. And all these years later it still has the same impact it had back then. One of very few shows I would call a true classic.
I remember watching this when it aired on TV. Crazy ass show especially at the age I was at. Yeah, theyd rip off the face skin!
I"ve never seen it but I heard plenty of good things.
same here, but my friends had the figures and they were pretty cool!
Freaked me out a bit as a kid, watched it again in my early teens and couldn't see what i got so wound up about.
Allegedly attempts are being made at a remake.
The best thing about V? Marc Singer wasn't in a little loin cloth like he was in in the Beast Wacker.
BTW: "V: The Second Generation" (2008) (mini)
V was awesome, and it had Michael Ironside in it, which made it even more awesome.
Loved V. My birthday cake that year had the aliens symbol on it.
I have V The Original Mini, Final Battle and TV show all on DVD. Definitely classic stuff. I even got my 13 yr old brother to like it. He's down with alien baby.
I'm glad there's a remake coming. The TV show ended poorly. And with today's effects, it could be amazing. If Ironside could come back in some form, that would be awesome.
Wasn't Alien Nation another attempt at the same story and also created by Kenneth Johnson? I didn't watch too much of that one, but I did find it interesting from what little I did see.
Remember it? I gots it on the DVD!
