I enjoy watching the new “V” series reincarnated on the ABC television network. The earlier — 1983 version — of “V” on NBC was bloodier, but not quite as interesting. “V” — if you don’t know is a synonym for “Visitor” — which they really aren’t — because Vs are actually aliens waiting to take over planet earth. Vs are more invader than visitor and figuring that out is part of the charm of the show. We know this because a series of “motherships” hover over major cities in the world just waiting to reign down destruction in the inevitable takeover. The bottom of the V-ships are like outdoor advertising. The Vs can communicate directly with us via a giant TV screen that is their warship underbelly.
