Ye gods I hope they don't use that red powder story line again. That is one of the few things I thought was really stupid about a otherwise enjoyable series. Can't remember if it happend that way in the comics I am pretty sure it didn't.

Aliens coming to help us seem to me to be nothing more than a update on the idea that "god" will come and help us or even science. Which seems to me is little more than a excuse for not doing a damn thing to change the world for the better. Some bigger "daddy" figure is always viewed as going to save us.

It certainly IS a message: Do not trust the powers that be. Do you honestly think that governments the world over would encourage the populace to anticipate and welcome offworld visitors? Of course they will be portrayed as evil - it's the perfect setup and many will fall for it.

Tonight's plot wasn't "ripped from the headlines", the show FILMED OVER THE SUMMER!!!! Pandemic flu wasn't even in the northern hemisphere and no one was raising concerns about the vaccine.

Nice try but alas: No:
The filming schedule of this season began Aug 12 and is slated to be wrapped up Jan 14.

Aug. 12, 2009 - Jan. 14, 2010.

It is ongoing. Usually they run a week or two early. So the next 2 episodes are prob in Tin. Thats about it though.

Um, people have been against vaccines in general for a while now. It's not any suprise that people are getting concerned about this one.

Since vaccination began in the late 18th century, opponents have claimed that vaccines do not work, that they are or may be dangerous, that individuals should rely on personal hygiene instead, or that mandatory vaccinations violate individual rights or religious principles.



Vaccines may cause side effects, and the success of immunization programs depends on public confidence in their safety. Concerns about immunization safety often follow a pattern: some investigators suggest that a medical condition is an adverse effect of vaccination; a premature announcement is made of the alleged adverse effect; the initial study is not reproduced by other groups; and finally, it takes several years to regain public confidence in the vaccine.

Shows have always mixed current events into things: look at Battlestar Galactica (new) constantly adding modern dilemmas such as torture etc..

A show capitalizing on paranoia regarding vaccinations is nothing new, it is simply opportunistic. Given H1N1 is relatively harmless I don't see the point of getting the vaccine.

So, the real question is: Which seems more plausible? A TV writer has the inside knowledge on chemical weapon efforts to kill millions and is trying to warn people by shoehorning it into a poor remake of a cult classic? or... The writers are trying to be relevant to current events and public fears?


You should not be so quick to dispell the theory of Hollywood people being in the know.

I mean, their are countless examples of 911 being predicted in movies, shows and even videogames.
In some films they even literally speak of the twin towers coming down on 9-11-2001. Another example is The Simpsons, A world wide broadcasted show in which one of the main characters held a magazine which had the twin towers on the cover with the numbers 911 next to it. This was way before 9-11-2001. Also there are some references to 911 in The Matrix which came out in 1999. And in, i think the X-Files, they litterally showed airplanes taking down the twin towers on purpose because of a conspiracy.

Lots of people in Hollywood know way more then we think. But hey, Hollywood is a massive tool thats being used by the PTB after all


And now im not saying this vaccine thing from V is really going to happen, but you should not dispell the fact that there are people in Hollywood that know of what is really going on, because that's been proven a numerous times.

There should actually be a warning about how bad this show really is.
I mean I have no idea why they remade this stinking pile in the first
place,but I would say there is an agenda to instill fear of anything
different in it`s audience and that`s about it.
If you want to pull in viewers you get some good actors in right?
or even some good writers in right?or even a storyline of some sort right?
None of the above are visible in this turgid rubbish,so why are they
bothering,seems the US networks will spend money on any garbage
these days.
This has to be the biggest pile of poo that has come out for some time,and that really takes some doing...what`s next a remake of Aliens or Critters? Jebus wept!

The television show "V" has a very important purpose indeed;

It's a dumping ground for out-of-work sci-fi and "B" movie actors. Plus, it's a good gig for the crew and other people employed by the show. Shhh… Don't tell everyone that the show sucks. These people need a gig and it's good for the economy.

As for foretelling of an actual alien visitation and the fallout that would ensue along with "ripped from the headlines" topics, who knows?

BTW, regarding the PTB; is there a website somewhere (or thread on ATS) that gives examples (with some evidence) regarding who some of these people are? We keep hearing about these "powers that be" people often nicknamed "they" or "them". Wouldn't it be enlightening to have a name/face or two to go with these mysterious figures of alleged uber-power?

There actually was such a magazine. But rather than the numbers 911, it showed a jet and something that looks like a nuclear warhead in conjunction with the twin towers. This was on the cover of a 1975 edition of The Watchtower. Very portentious. Did they know something? Was this another "revelation of method" from insiders?

If you ask me and well you did..."V" is being written by us.
They are taking all our conspiracies and writing them into the scripts.
Or should I say popular conspiracies.

LOL, out of work actors and B-movie actors? Laura Vandervoort is still part of the cast from Smallville and i dont know but aint that a hit?

And the show is garbage? I dont know but weve only seen 4 episodes, ofcourse everybody needs to find their way a little.

Human nature at work, AGAIN. Why are we humans so shallow? I mean come on, theyve only done 4 episodes. Give the cast and crew some time.

The episode is from 1997, now watch this image:



Coincidence?

Rumors are that the creator of the show is a 33rd degree Freemason.

Harry Shearer who does 12 voices on the Simpsons is a member of the Bohemian Grove.





X-Files Lone Gunman - Planes going for WTC


9/11 Predicted in X-Men 1984 Comic Book.



There are so many more examples

Ah, but the flip side of that: Movie and book writers always try and one-up each other for most horrible thing that can occur. Similar to how the ransom amount in movies always climbs and climbs and climbs.

Is it not also possible that the terrorists and others who would do such deeds get inspiration from the movies and shows? After all the movie makers are looking for the biggest shocks they can get, as are the scum: which is more imaginative? (certain remakes and vampire movies not-with-standing).

Thats a valid argument. I mean after all, it is just a tv show on ABC of all stations (which is owned by Disney, one of the biggest corps in the world, which would make ABC part of TPTB) however, if there was something like this coming in our future, perhaps preparing people via tv plot lines would make the change less of a shock? who knows.... probably not Icke

I feel this article relates, but is mostly fantasy much like "V".

From UFO Digest:

Alien intelligences may be controlling the United States government at its highest, most secret level.

If, in fact, the top-secret federal government entity in charge of controlling information about the extraterrestrial reality is itself being controlled by aliens, that would help explain why the government is reluctant to release any data related to the phenomenon.

U.S. citizens began reporting Unidentified Flying Objects to federal, state and local authorities in 1947, but ever since the beings piloting these strange flying machines have done a stellar job of keeping their operation secret. Alien abduction accounts began to surface in the 1960s, but again, the extraterrestrial entities responsible have been able to keep irrefutable proof of the stories’ reality from the general public.

For the rest of the article.

Exactly. Writers do their homework and even the original V was conspiracy based.

You're not being 'warned through the show V'.

You're being frightened through the show V.

It's subtle, and it's working.

The only warning I see is that if you are going to remake an already awesome show that you need to make it at least as awesome as the original or more so.
