V: The Complete Series (DVD)

V, the sensational, highly rated miniseries continues as an action-packed, hour-long series with Marc Singer, Jane Badler and Faye Grant reprising their roles in this science-fiction thriller ablaze with special effects. Slimy, carnivorous reptiles disguised as humans and with a taste for human flesh arrive from outer space, claiming to offer solutions of all mankind's problems. But they really plan to enslave the earth's population and use it for food. Now, a television cameraman named Mike Donovan (Singer) leads a group of resistance fighters ... the last, best hope for the survival of humanity!

In 1985, I didn't have a VCR. I loved "V" in 1983 and enjoyed "V The Final Battle" in 1984. I was really happy to hear that the struggles of Mike Donovan and the rest of the resistance were coming back as a series. At the time I worked at a local grocery store and, as fate would have it, I was usually scheduled when V the series was on. As a result I only caught a few episodes here and there when I had a day off. It was not as good as the two mini series but I thought it was entertaining. After a mere 19 episodes the show was cancelled and V was gone forever.

Since that time, I ran across friends who didn't like the series. Whenever I found articles about "V", the series follow up was always dismissed as crass exploitation of the franchise. Last week, WB released the series (possibly to test the wind for a new mini series) on DVD for the first time. Finally, after nearly two decades (can it be that long?) I have been able to finally discover what the series was all about. Here are my impressions:

There will be many SPOILERS so please do not read further if you want to be surprised.

1. This series isn't bad. It is not as good as the two mini-series but it is entertaing in its own right. I also think that this show was innovative in the field of TV Science Fiction. Prior to "V", Science Fiction was very episodic. Star Trek, Space: 1999, Logan's Run, Planet of the Apes, Buck Rogers and to a certain extent, Battlestar Galactica all told self contained stories. The plot was resolved by the end of the hour. "V" The series was different in this respect. It had story arcs and continuing plot threads. Every episode ended in a cliff-hanger and it left you wanting more. In this aspect, it has a modern flavor.

V: The Series was a very odd television show. On one hand, The Final Battle ended and it was a very satisfying end to the 10 hour miniseries. But this weekly series did actually made some interesting points to the ongoing story but it was soon abandoned as well as most of the originally cohesive cast.

The series starts out about a year later and we soon see that Diana and the fleet wants revenge over the red dust. As we soon find out, the dust is harmful to people and really can't be used anymore and the visitors patiently wait for the dusts effects to cease. This sets up many good episodes about the visitors regaining control. However, gone is the Nazi allegory and it therefore goes for power and corruption plots all the while the resistance is back to fight the Visitor's once again.

I found myself really enjoying the first several episodes. The acting was solid, Diana was as nasty as ever and they took chances and killed off regulars and that added to the dramatic impact. The Nathan Bates subplots were actually interesting and you really began to hate Mr. Chang. Michael Ironside was also very fun to watch. And the "soap opera" of "Charles and Diana" was also very entertaining.

However, as it went on toward midseason, the series started falling apart by the seams. The idea of the resistance always winning and episodes ending with showing Diana dejected began to run thin. They just beat us over the head with Willy and his butchering of the English language, which is a shame, because he was such a charming character and performed well. The special effects were reused over and over again. The campiness factor of eating rodents was way over done and all originality that they could have tried for just went away.

For those of us who were there, the 1983 original "V" minseries (and its sequel the following year) were Event Television. The weekly series that followed wasn't well-received by comparison. I'm not sure why that is, as it was a reasonably well-made, action-packed continuation of the story.
The first dozen or so episodes were the best, as Marc Singer's Mike Donovan looked for his son while trying to hold together the rag-tag band of resistance fighters. Along with Faye Grant as Juliet Parish and the ever-imposing Michael Ironside as Ham Tyler, Singer helped carry the episodes. But around episode 12 (it's been awhile, so forgive me if I'm off by one or so) about the half the cast was written out, including Ironside. The remaining episodes degenerated in quality, but the final cliffhanger (the NEVER RESOLVED cliffhanger) was very exciting.
"V" originally conceived as a WWII allegory; the weekly show, while perhaps omitting some of the more intellectual and philosophical beats, still stands up as a well-made bit of action/sci-fi. Give it another chance, I think you'll find it wasn't nearly as bad as its detractors suggest.

I had to own this. It was awful, this series, but it was a part of my childhood, and a follow up to the excellent two-part miniseries and the mediocre The Final Battle. But, as always, these reviews will be read, mostly, by folks who already have seen the series and formed their own opinions. So I have a technical warning to add to the mix.

The original two-part miniseries and The Final Battle were transferred from the original 35mm film for the new DVD releases. This contributed to their excellent picture quality. Even 'Knight Rider,' which was two-and-a-half years older, was transferred, in all its 35mm glory, directly to the master digital medium prior to making its way to DVD.

Not so with V: The Series. The picture quality's really not great. Apparently the DVD authors were unable (or too lazy) to find the original 35mm film stock, and elected to transfer from the original analogue videotape to the DVD master. So you get a picture confined by the technical limitations of 1984 broadcast technology. For example, composite video. Which means that your juicy S-Video or Y, Cr, Cb hookup to your video monitor doesn't help you - you WILL be stuck with the artefacts inherent in composite video, in the same way you would have been with LaserDisc.

To drive the point home, the DVDs have the old FBI warning slide at the end of the episodes. Yes, the very same FBI warning you'll see on a 1990 LaserDisc - if you can actually see it through the analogue composite video haze.

So, beware - no improvements have been made to the quality of this series in order to bring it to DVD. You'll get it exactly as you did 20 years ago (has it been that long???).

It was the end, for many years after 2hr tv movie was in the talk stages to wrapup the cliffhaner's in the final episode "The Return" but it came to pass and that was that.
