Yes, “Siege” is what V has desperately needed – a cleaning house episode […]Read On »

It’s clear Season Two is going to end on the V’s true intentions finally being revealed to the world – but that means any remaining fans have to suffer through a bunch of filler episodes that lead nowhere fast.

Exclusive Interview: V star Joel Gretsch doesn’t let those lizards get under his collar

In Season Two of V, it’s become pretty clear that the alien Visitors, lead by Morena Baccarin’s stern Anna, do not have the best interests of humanity at heart. What the Vs do have is an enormous amount of high-tech weaponry. Standing against them are a small group of mixed humans and Vs known as the Fifth Column. Joel Gretsch plays Father Jack Landry, a key member of the Fifth Column whose faith is powerfully tested by both the existence and actions of the Visitors. Gretsch is something of a genre veteran – he was in the extraterrestrial miniseries TAKEN […]Read On »

TV Review: V – Season 2 – “Unholy Alliance”

Something strange and wonderful happened with V last night taking its regular story about aliens and the human resistance fighters trying to take them down and mixing it with the hot button issue of “religion.”

Religion in science-fiction is a no brainer (not without its own controversy), and to find such an intelligence, smart and still entertaining way of integrating it into a network show takes balance and tact which writer Rockne S. O’Bannon handles effortlessly.

It’s no surprise that V has struggled during its run to find its voice and remedy pacing issues. And the first two episodes of Season Two offered up promise, but still felt like the series was dealing with the wayward plotting ghosts of Season One.

However, “Laid Bare” has remedied many of those issues. A solid episode packed with action, revelations and some very cool effects, it’s one of the best episodes of the series to date and promises a major upheaval in the personal lives of all the characters.

If Earth wasn’t in enough trouble in the first season of ABC’s reboot of the Eighties alien invasion series V, now there’s a power struggle among the Visitors, an alien/human baby, deadly red rain, homicidal reptile tails and new cast members to contend with. V show runner Scott Rosenbaum – with some additional thoughts from actor Joel Gretsch, who plays Father Jack Landry (stay tuned for our exclusive interview with the performer) – talks to us about how the war is going, the guest cast and why Gretsch wishes Rosenbaum could visit the set more often in the first part […]Read On »

At today’s Winter TCA 2011 press tour, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee spoke about the strategy for V – Season 2 and hopes the numbers continue to be as strong as the season two premiere. “Those lizards just won’t die,” says Lee. “They keep coming back. We’re pleased with that. We wanted to give it space [by ordering] ten episodes, so we could quality control those episodes. We brought whole new ideas to it and amped up the adrenaline in that show to make sure it gets better and better.” CLICK HERE for ASSIGNMENT X’s exclusive interview with V […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: V star Morena Baccarin sheds her skin

In ABC’s reboot of V, the alien Visitors trying to take over Earth are led by Anna (played by Morena Baccarin), who is a pretty cold customer even by extraterrestrial reptile standards. She mates with humans and then eats them, skins alive subordinates who displease her and even beats up her own daughter Lisa for disobedience. This season, we’ll see that Anna also has been dishing out rough treatment to her mother (portrayed by Jane Badler, who was the primary alien villainess in the original ’80s incarnation of V). Thanks to the fact that Anna is played by Baccarin (pronounced […]Read On »
