V: "It's Only the Beginning"
So let's recap- recently, "The Visitors" a group of Alien lifeforms have visited the Earth. Their leader, Anna, cailms "We are at peace. Always." Slowly, people begin to except the Vs, as reporter Chad Decker interviews the Vs and reveal who they really are- kind people eager to help the humans.
On the flip side, not everyone is buying into this. There is a large protest resistance among the people of Earth. Soon, an alliance between FBI Agent Erica Evans, Catholic Priest Father John, and Morris Chestnut, who is revealed to be a V posing as a human.
But how do they know he's a V? Well, the Vs wear fake skin to appear "human". The Vs really have lizard like skin. If you cut them deep enough, you'll find it.
Morris is not a bad guy. He is one of the few Vs who rebell against Anna. We suspect that the Vs true intentions are not Universal Healthcare or Peace. They are associated with terrorists. They have manipulated human thinking. And they watch us. Their cameras are everywhere.
V is a show where you'll probably have to like sci-fi to watch. But V has many different layers. The sho tackles things that have bothered humans since the dawn of time. Are we alone? If there is other life out there, are they evil? Is a war of the worlds coming?
It's also been controversial. Some have shown parallels between the show and President Obama presedency. Is it an allegory? Who knows, I guess we'll find out.
V is becoming one of my favorite shows. It has the depth of Lost, but is totally sci-fi. This 4 month break will be hard, but I will definately be back in March. But the question is... when is the armada of Vs coming?
Come back during the next several weeks and I'll go more in depth about each episode.
