It has its good points and bad...
The head alien is PERFECT, and she is playing the role beautifully (even better than Diana, imho...)
Cool motherships, look much more reptillian
Awesomely better lizard effects
Sleeper agents are an interesting new twist
Interesting change (head resistance is female instead of male, the human/alien relationship genders were reversed (human male falling for V
female...her son, etc.)
It was rushed. One episode and we have the revelation they are lizards, the beginnings of the resistance, etc.? This should have been built up
The shuttles look clunky, I liked the sleek, white ships of the past.
NO SYMBOL!!! The symbol was one of the biggest icons of the old series...
Calling them "V's", just call them Visitors...like the old show...
Skimpy on the revelation...the old show said where they came from (Sirius), more about why they were here (even though a smokescreen), and more
interaction with officials.
The old uniforms were much more sinister...
No "Scientist Conspiracy", this was an anchor of the old show, and a way for the Visitors to start dissent.
All that aside, still a good show, and one of my new must-watch shows... Anna is worth it...beautiful, but deadly, and her acting is top notch (note
the little eye flutters and other minor tics that really bely an alien character...awesome...) Like the old show, it hinges on the performance of the
alien face to the world, so they did do this right....
Moreso than the original though, it seems humanity is really screwed....hehe...
