Bring Back V
V is a show about aliens, known as The Visitors, who come to Earth claiming that they are peaceful, loving creatures, when in actual fact they are evil reptilian monsters. Some people accept them, but others know the truth and try to fight against them. The battle seemed to be going in the V’s favour, until the brave soldiers of ABC stepped in and sent The Visitors away. Now fans of the series unite and demand that ABC bring back the Vs.
The show stars Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin, Mitchell as an FBI agent/mother and Baccarin as an invading alien queen/mother. The series has a complex and compelling plot as well as good strong characters and plenty of character development. It’s really one my favourite shows at the moment, the only problem is that it got cancelled last month on the 13th of May. This meant that the show was left at a cliffhanger. So that’s where you come in, please sign the online petition to bring the show back. Every signature brings us one step closer to season 3 and if you’re a really big fan you could also try writing a letter and mailing it to ABC at this address; Mr. Stephen McPherson, Chairman, ABC, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: V. If you do go down that road make sure you stay polite, being rude isn’t going to help anyone. The petition can be found at this link; http://www.petitiononline.com/julietp1/petition.html.
Though this series may only have two seasons so far, V has been around for a long time. The franchise goes back as far as 1983 when a miniseries, also called V, was aired. The following year there was another miniseries that continued the plot and then there was a TV series that lasted one season, finishing in 1985. The premise of the old V shows and the new one are the same, evil invading aliens who wear human skin to hide the fact that they are reptilian, but the characters and storylines are a lot different. One of the old characters is actually in the new series as the mother of Morena Baccarin’s character. She has the same name as she did in the previous shows and even reminisces about things that do relate back to the original series. That’s actually one of my favourite things about the show, it respects where it came from and it throws that in for fans of the old shows.
It’s not often that a show this unique and intriguing comes along so don’t let it slip away without a fight.
