"V - The Final Battle" or VTFB as it is otherwise known, is a three episode sequel to "V-The Original Series - Mankind's Last Stand" and VTFB wraps up a 5 episode run of the 1983 / 1984 production. There are subsequent TV mini-series that came after, but these two mentioned DVD sets are the culture phenomenon that is known by fans as "V" and still has a following of faithful viewers even three decades later.
This set has 2 DVD's, one DVD has an episode on each side, the other DVD in the "VTFB" set has only one episode (if you put it in your player upside down, nothing will load). This DVD set offers subtitles in English, François, Española, Portuguese, Chinese, Bahasa, Thai, & Korean. The first set has two episodes on alternate sides of one DVD, and this "Final Battle" set only uses three of the four available sides.
Of course the "V" original series DVD sets (3 ttl DVD's, 5 ttl episodes) leave the story open ended, but without spoiling the entire viewing experience here, I'll just say, that is how nearly ALL of the Sci-Fi genre stuff is released these days.
Interesting how many familiar faces are in this, since it is almost thirty years in the past. The "V" original series production (all 5 episodes) is pretty tame by today's standard, but was at first considered "too cerebral" by regular broadcasting TV studios. Still, it became a culture icon and is referred to in several subsequent films, literature, prime time TV shows, and small talk around the water cooler in today's workplace.
