What’s the best scripted TV show of 2009? Here’s your chance to decide: VOTE HERE!
Juliet Burke - Lost - Poll
ABC’s ensemble drama contains a cauldron of dark and twisty secrets, but few have been as hard to figure out as why Emmy snubbed Elizabeth Mitchell for a nomination. At least EWwy was able to let the healing begin, as Lost‘s Juliet snagged 37 percent of the vote, almost twice as many as her next closest competitor, House‘s Lisa Edelstein. The top two were trailed by Tricia Helfer of Battlestar Galactica, Cote de Pablo of NCIS, Chloe Sevigny of Big Love, and Alison Pill of In Treatment.

What’s V all about? Should you watch? Read on…
You won’t see any shoulder pads or big ’80s hair in this revamp of the sci-fi cult classic—and this series wastes no time revealing the true nature of the Visitors. Still there will be plenty of surprises—especially the conclusion to the first episode. Save your snacks for later, because you will scream.
The Vs—as the populace quickly abbreviates them—cause some mild damage and major hysteria when they descend on Earth and position their spaceships above major cities throughout the globe. But humans just love getting presents (including peace, harmony and cool techno-gadgets), especially when delivered by a beautiful alien leader, Anna, who comes in smokin’-hot wrapping. So as far as the Earthlings are concerned, everything is copacetic with the Vs.
But count on the cynicism of a few grouchy New Yorkers—including FBI agent Erica Evans (Lost‘s Mitchell), a priest (Gretsch) and an ambitious news anchor (Wolf)—to stir up questions about the invaders’ true intentions.
Unfortunately, Evans’ teenage son is not so cynical. In fact, as soon as he meets the Vs, he’s a lost cause. His single mom is going to have a tough time separating him from his Peace Ambassador uniform, wicked space-shuttle flights and a seductive blond alien recruiter. (Kids today!)
It won’t be easy for others in the resistance movement either. Father Jack’s faith in God and religion is challenged, while reporter Ryan Seacrest Chad Decker is forced to choose between integrity…and phenomenal success.
