2009 Best TV: V

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.

V Review | Which new fall series are you now going steady with?

V: Quite possibly the worst set design on television — that church front is seriously supposed to look like New York City? — and the teen romance is 1-800-killing-me, but the first four episodes have hooked me nonetheless. Of course, Elizabeth Mitchell could get me hooked on anything — except maybe CSI: Miami. And Heroes. Oh, and Raising the Bar. — and that Mark Hildreth ain’t too hard to look at either.

V Teams with Lost | Elizabeth Mitchell Tuesdays

ABC makes new plans for their genre TV series.

December 4, 2009 – When V ran its last episode, ABC had a promo at the end saying the series would return in March. The network now has set the specific date for the show, and while it’s still in March, it’s barely so – March 30th.
That will keep V on Tuesday nights, but the show will now be airing at 10:00pm – right after Lost. That’s right, it’ll often be Elizabeth Mitchell Tuesdays, as both her series (while no longer a regular, she’s expected to make several appearances on Lost‘s final season) will run on the same network, on the same night, back-to-back.

Juliet, meet Erica. Erica, meet Juliet. If you’re an Elizabeth Mitchell fan (and we at IGN TV are), Tuesday nights are for you

The notable mid-season break for V has been known (and debated) for some time now, but ABC has surprised viewers by also now announcing a big break for FlashForward
That series ran its final episode of the year this week, but instead of returning with new episodes next month, as originally expected, FlashForward will also be off the air until March. New episodes will begin airing Thursday, March 4.

ABC touts that holding both series until March will allow both to run uninterrupted for the remainder of the season – but obviously fans will still bemoan going so long between new episodes.

Doc Jensen about Juliet and V

It’s a spoiler if you haven’t read the old EW interview to Lindelof& Cuse. Jensen really hates V. è_é

The producers also recently told my colleague Dan Snierson that Juliet is indeed toes up — but actress Elizabeth Mitchell will materialize at least twice during the final sweep of episodes. (Let’s take a moment and shoot furious eye darts of blazing indignation at her new show, V, for completely letting Mitchell down with mediocre material.)

V: Some thoughts about Erica | Review

Should Erica have grilled Ryan more closely after discovering he was a V?
M.L. House: Yes! How about…. where is he from? When did he get here? Why did he come here? Can she see under his skin? What’s his favorite color? I’d have asked a couple more questions, Erica.
Mrs. Northman: I don’t think so – Erica was at the secret meeting and knew what harm Ryan could have done if he chose to. Also, setting off the bomb was key to show where Ryan’s alliance lies.
The Barnacle: No. After watching Juliet’s heroic act at the conclusion of season five of Lost, I’ll never question anything Elizabeth Mitchell does again.

V Asks Who You’d Rather Have As Your Mom: Erica Or Anna? | Review

This review contains spoilers!

Erica, meanwhile, gets to do even more ass-kicking tomorrow night, stepping up to a leadership role in the resistance and helping to deal a blow to the Visitors. I really like how fast this show is moving, and I like how unapologetically heroic and bad-ass they’re letting Erica be. (Let’s hope they don’t feel the need to counterbalance this by having her cry in every episode.) Elizabeth Mitchell is having a field day with playing a tough FBI agent who can’t reveal to anyone what she knows about the most important event in human history.

Globe TV newcomers try to break in | V Review

Veteran shows have advantage of familiarity: “V,” ABC

Classic Precursor: “V” is take two of the popular 1983 cult sci-fi miniseries “V.” Lizard-like aliens once again try to control mere earthlings.2
Why It Has a Shot: Elizabeth Mitchell of “Lost” stars as the tough FBI agent fighting off the bad guys. Mitchell, with one win and two noms for supporting actress, could have a shot at a Globe for her acclaimed perf in “V.”
If Not the Big Ones: Award-winning producer Kenneth Johnson of the “Alien Nation” franchise is nicely positioned for a Globe win. So, too, is Joss Whedon (“3:10 to Yuma”) for his role as Mitchell’s fed partner, Dale.
An Upbeat Opinion: Matt Roush, TV Guide: “A rip-roaring twist on the alien-invasion scenario, this is a reinvention of the popular 1980s miniseries-turned-series. ‘V’ nicely exploits the unease in a world of next-door terrorist cells and mob-mentality zealotry. ‘V’ may not initially dig as deep as ‘FlashForward,’ but there’s a juicy urgency to all of the interpersonal and intergalactic melodrama, with plenty of action and surprising reveals.”
