My Scifi Tween and V
Back in the 80's all scifi geeks were treated to a fabulous mini series on ABC. This series was V It had a sequel mini series entitled V - The Final Battle and a wonderful television series simply entitled V - The Series I remember thinking this was the coolest show ever and I never missed and episode. When the series was released on DVD I ran out that day and purchased it. I have watched it many times as has my 12 year old. She loves all things scifi. She can thank her Star Wars loving mom and Trekie dad for this. She really had no choice, but to watch these shows. Good thing she likes them and wants to see more.
For anyone out there that isn't aware of what V is. First off V stands for Visitor, alien Visitor that is. It's a Scifi show that has aliens come to Earth in these large mother ships offering to help us cure diseases and give us technology looking only for our friendship. They look exactly like us so they are welcomed with open arms. Little do we know they are lizard people in disguise who really want to use us as a food source, very diabolical. Anyway a resistance forms and the battle for survival begins. Who sides with the visitors and who is on your side? Very exciting stuff here.
When I found out V was being made into a new series I was so excited and shared this excitement with my daughter. We could hardly wait. I of course went away the premier week so was unable to watch it. My daughter watched with her grandfather and he is now hooked on the show. I watch episodes 1 & 2 last night. Thank you DVR. I'm so hooked.
They have an amazing cast. Elizabeth Mitchell from lost as Erica our future resistance leader, Morena Baccarin from Firefly as Anna the Visitor leader and Scott Wolf from Party of Five as a reporter not sure which side he's on other than his own at this point. I'm loving them. They are doing an awesome job with these characters.
My daughter is all about the teen characters Tyler, who is Erica's son and Lisa a visitor. She sees total forbidden love in their storyline and is all over it. She can't wait to see what happens with them next. She is convinced Lisa will be good. I'm not thinking that's the case, but we'll see. Her friends our loving it too. At this point in time I find the show to be fine for her to watch. Again I watch with her so if it ever jumps over what I define as okay the show gets clicked off at least till she goes to bed. I do anticipate the show getting more violent. I'm not sure how far they will go with sexual aspects. The new Battlestar Galactica went too far and she was not allowed to watch that. I actually felt it went to far for me to watch it. I just don't think it's necessary. I hope V will keep it light so she will be able to keep watching it.
Please give this show a chance. It will be worth your while even if you don't like scifi you will be treated to a well acted show that may surprise you. My only concern is that they only plan to air 2 more episodes before it goes in hiatus till March. I don't like it when shows do this. Hopefully it will be okay. People can be so fickle.
