Just curious: Am I the only one wondering why the V remake is being described as a smash hit?
Something seems very missing from it, and Ive been watching so far in the hope that it got better.
The troubles as I see them: (and I will be the first to admit this stems from comparison with the original series)
Very little happens in each episode per se. It rumbles on with plots and intrique that lead nowhere in particular.
The visitors arrive, and suddenly we have a resistance movement. Did I miss something, or have the visitors actually done anything bad that the world at large can see yet? Scientific advance. Medicine. Blue energy.. The world should be beating a path to the door.
Theyre Visitors, but even they call themselves the Vs. Why?
It seems vitally important to the V leader that a teen nobody is recruited and seduced by her daughter. Whats the point?
The resistance knows theyre reptilian. NO-ONE ELSE DOES. That one simple fact would rally the world against them, yet none of the resistance feels compelled to take out a big advert or even run around the streets shouting about it.
Just like Lost before it, all we got was a soap with special effects.
