Mania Grade: A

“We Can’t Win” is – head and shoulders – the best episode of the re-imagined V, given that it had plenty of edge-of-your-seat, WTF moments. It also had less than the usual approximately 42 minutes (san commercials in an hour-long drama) to make an impact since Lost ran two minutes over its timeslot, which it did, speaking for everyone involved’s commitment to a quality show.
