I'm too young to remember the original show "V" upon which the new series is based, but I find the new series, which I watch on my satellite TV from www.direc4u.com, very satisfying. It's an epic good vs evil battle that paints a sophisticated alien society who call themselves the Visitors as sinister beings duping the world into trusting them.
Anna is the seductive leader of these aliens who look like incredibly attractive humans but are actually reptilian underneath their skin. She prides herself on her ability to remain impervious to human emotions while imitating them quite convincingly. To the world, she presents a kind face, but we see that behind the scenes, she is carefully plotting evil deeds.
Elizabeth Mitchell, who came into the show after three years playing Other obstetrician Juliet on LOST, portrays FBI agent Erica, who works with the Visitors in her job but is also a part of an underground resistance striving to bring them down. One of her chief allies in this endeavor is a conflicted priest named Jack, who believes that the Visitors are trying to set themselves up as gods. He is determined to oppose them, yet he fears the potential human cost of doing so.
The show does get exessively violent at times, with fighters killing each other and occasional alien atrocities behind closed doors, but it's definitely compelling television.
