I want some of that Bliss. That was a pretty cool sequence. Anna can make Vs feel real, real good.
So that's their plan! They're pretending they have a miracle cure but really they're fucking with our flu shots. It's so simple! No, it isn't - it's needlessly complicated. And it's also the very same plan Homer Simpson uncovered when he was Mr. X that got him banished to the Island in their parody of The Prisoner.
If I understand Visitor math correctly, Ryan and Valerie's baby will be half black, half Hispanic, and half lizard.
The new Resistance kind of blunders around and yet manages to get stuff accomplished. I thought Georgie was a skilled rebel survivor who's been fighting Vs for a long time or something but no, he's just a greasy dude who doesn't know what he's doing and himself shot. Where was Georgie after Erica, Jack and Ryan blew up the warehouse? Did they just leave him in the car and forget about him?
I'm kind of disappointed we didn't get to see the skinning. Four episodes in and we still haven't seen the lizard within except for the brief shot of Dale's eye. It's kind of weird how Visitors have all this super medical science but they use scalpels to skin each other. Or maybe that's just Visitor punishment, going medieval on each other's asses.
I wish they went the extra mile and developed a Visitor spoken language so that when Vs are speaking to each other on their ships with no humans around, they're not speaking English.
I like the Visitor suicide method. Vs about to kill themselves should yell out, "Kiss my ash, human!"
Tyler doesn't seem like he ever plans on going back home. He's on a motherfuckin' spaceship with his hot blonde alien girlfriend and her hot mother. He's in teenage boy paradise.
The ending was very encouraging. Father Jack taking a shiv in the gut was a nice surprise. The final shot of the Visitor fleet heading for Earth was pretty bad ass.
In the original V, the Visitors were from Sirius. I hope in March, 2010 we learn what galaxy they're from and whar the Visitors' name for their race is. They can't possibly refer to themselves as "the Visitors" to each other.
Anna's comment about mother's protecting their young so has me wanting to see Erica vs. Anna already. Either that, or I can't wait until season two when Tyler and Lisa get married and Erica and Anna have to cope as in-laws.
I'm amazed that the V's aren't able to pick up the traces from Erica doing searches over a wireless network. Even if she's encrypting her traffic, the V's should be able to break it, right? I have to stop assuming the V's are borderline omniscient.
Shouldn't Erica's training have had her shoot back at Ryan when he shot over her shoulder? The plot device of "let's show high tension scene involving someone possibly dying and then go back in time to see how we got here" feels rather gratuitous.
So, what's the over/under on Chad actually having an aneurysm?
Add me to the I want to see some lizard bandwagon.
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...
Originally posted by CRZWas this really, REALLY the first time in the ENTIRE history of all of the Visitors being on our planet that there's been a cross-species knockup?
I'm willing to bet my first forked-tongued offspring that Chestnut's wife is a V - but that she ends up on the "other" side of this conflict. I'm less convinced that the older Priest is a V. I just think he's very... Catholic.
I'm a little late, I just got around to watching this last night.
I thought it was odd that the V doctor guy gave the "traitor" something so he couldn't move, but nothing for the pain? What a pal.
I also saw part of an ad for the new Human Target show on Fox and could have swore that the priest from V was the star, so I figured the V security guard killed him. Looking on IMDB, it looks like I was mistaken and the Human Target is the blonde FBI guy from the first couple episodes of Fringe.
One thing about the pregnancy that I'm curious about though. Assuming that somehow human and V DNA is able to match up and allow reproduction, if the V doctors diagnosis in four dimensions (thanks for clearing up that the fourth dimension was time, V doctor!), then does that mean they've seen that the baby will be half human and half V? And if so, wouldn't they be watching that woman like a hawk? I would also assume they know what the black V traitor guy looks like since I don't think they can change their appearance, otherwise the chemistry professor would have changed his face. So, if that's true, then why didn't a V swat team come crashing down through the sky light over the bed as soon as Chestnut came home?
The moment the Bliss scene started I thought of the drug they used to subjugate the populace from Alien Nation.
I hope this is going to get better.
Michael Ironside would be a great place to start.

The wife and I are both big fans of the original, and both enjoyed this one. I have always thought Rob has a great eye for horror directing, but could benefit from a professional screenwriter to help him with his scripts.
