On network, Lost, which starts its final season in February, remains the show to beat. There may never have been a more complex, compelling, innovative drama on network TV. You have til February to catch up on previous seasons. We recommend it.
ABC also debuted FlashForward and V, two of the best sci-fi-ish drama series in years.
V is also set in a fictional present, and details the explosive events that occur after a series of alien ships invade 20 of the world’s major cities. The visitors (Vs, as they are called) claim to come in peace to seek some vital elements necessary to sustain themselves on their own possibly dying planet. They have cures for diseases and are all incredibly great-looking. But in reality, their Armani-garbed, model-perfect bodies are covering for their actual lizard bodies. Their invasion is not new: as FBI agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) discovers, many of them have infiltrated the world years earlier, setting up complicated lives and preparing for the actual invasion of the Vs.
