    Boy did they ever! I guess they had to show a hot/sexy scene at some point since Lisa hasn't been shagging with Tyler, though what was up with the preview?

    Joshua getting his memory back was the most exciting part to last night's episode. Now that he has it, I don't want the season to end/them cancel the show! I want to see how he's going to play it all out - letting Anna believe he still has it while working with Lisa? I want to see what happens next!

There just seem to be a lot of foreshadowings without fast enough plot development to hold viewer interest.
    Looks like a lot of those questions were answered this last show!

    I, too, am wondering what is up with Lisa's sex scene...looks like she's about to rape Tyler!
    As someone who also watched the original V am also glad to see Diana back, although I can see if you didn't see that it would seem a little out of the blue. Loved that Ana is getting "seduced" by emotion. Boy, that actress does an excellent evil smile!

    I know that. I posted much more recently since this old post you quoted.

    He must not be too bad since he was on Reaper and is also going to be on the new show with Christian Slater. I like him but think he does better at comedy.

    I am still watching and my problem is that the humans never seem to make any progress. They need at least one small victory to help us stay vested. I don't like that every time they try something it backfires on them.

    I missed last week though - did Erica and Hobbes shack up??? She's gonna hate herself for that if she ever finds out that he was the catalyst that led to Joe getting killed.

    oops, sorry I didn't know who the mother was! I guess if you know the background, it's kinda cool. But... how many people do you think, who watch normal primetime television, know who she is? I'm guessing that they all have the same impression I had and it seems really lame if you don't know.

    As for the scientist actor kid, I'm sorry, but I still stick with the fact that I can SEE him acting. Whenever I can do that, it spoils the illusion for me. Maybe he will do better in a show with better writers and the problem is with the fact that he is having a hard time delivering a believable performance because he doesn't believe his own lines.

    Re: "V" on ABC

    I'm honestly feeling with "V" they're setting us up for a season finale and then maybe a two hour finale show.

    There's NOTHING in this version that is really keeping me interested anymore, especially since there isn't as people have said, any small victories. Even Julie's capture had a victory because she did reveal to people who the visitors really were and people I'm sure started to stay skeptical about them after that - even with the rebroadcast of what was "real."

    To me, the only interesting characters are the visitors - all the humans are just idiots or vigilantes and not really balanced characters. I think the scientist may be the ONLY character similar to say Julie of the original series - kind hearted, tries to be fair, but then fights when need be.

    In fact, I'm almost rooting for Anna to win - and you don't want that.

    Ryan to me still feels a bit like Willy except he has the betrayal attitude. He has however learned his lesson I think.

    I've been overall disappointed with this series - the original, cheesy effects and all - was better. Even the TV series of the show was better.

    I constantly had to check to see that I really had water to drink in my glass while watching the Season Finale! I thought it was very disjointed and confusing. I've never seen a show jump so fast from one loose end to another to try to get everything in.
    Honestly, there were some great elements in the Finale, but they needed to be developed a little, and not just thrown in our laps and then on to the next big thing.

    Re: "V" on ABC

    I wonder if this show will be back. I was surprised that they killed Tyler. Wait till Erica finds out. And what are they going to do now that all of humanity can be blissed? Seems like it's over unless Fifth Column can kidnap and control Amy. Even then, there will be more hybrids from Lisa's clone ... unless they kill her before she gives birth. Plus, Earth is being invaded by all those ships. I guess it's going to be up to Erica and those people she met underground to defeat the whole armada. Good episode ... too bad it's the season finale. If it comes back, might not be till fall and that's a long time for people to get disinterested and disconnected again.

    Re: "V" on ABC

    I didn't feel the episode was disjointed.....just rushed. And for me, each episode doesn't meld with the last one. Ok....I guess maybe it is a lil bit disjointed...

    I can't believe they killed Tyler, either! What if the insemination didn't take the first time? Oops. And I'm going to assume that Ryan is dead? Looked like Amy snapped his neck. Chad Decker is likely next. And where did the scientist and Ericka's lover disappear to? I'm going to assume they had to because of the tracker but they left a whole lot to assume without really giving any information.

    My husband and I thought that Ericka's co-workers might be V's. Guess not, eh?
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didn’t hear me call shotgun.

    Re: "V" on ABC

    I thought her co-workers were V's, too, but I loved their twist! As far as the episode being disjointed, I didn't want to say too much last night, since it had not aired on the West Coast. To me, the episode felt like it skipped over from one big event to another, which sometimes works, but I didn't feel like it did in this instance. For example, the new queen egg hatches, and she's ready to go in hours? Lisa has been planning and waiting for 2 seasons for that moment, and now the new Lisa is ready in minutes?

    Rushed might have been a better word, but even at that, so many of the transitions were left out. In my opinion, it was edited as if it had been two episodes (or more) that they were trying to squeeze all together for the finale.

    Question: how did Anna get that Queen Egg? Still confused on that one!

    Re: "V" on ABC

    Great Googley-Moogely!!!!! Now THAT was a great episode!! SOOOOO many things happened with so many repercussions I don't even know where to begin!

    Diana, Ryan and Tyler in one show! Chad captured, Hobbs gone, and Father McHottie Blissed! And a full on Alien view.

    And can I get a big ol' squeeeeee for Marc Singer!!! Porn 'stache and all. LOL! I just love him - he should get more work.
    Question: how did Anna get that Queen Egg? Still confused on that one!
    She had it from when she laid the queen egg that became Lisa. It had been in some sort of storage and she had Joshua, before he got his memory back, accelerate its growth to be ready to hatch in case Lisa didn't work out.

    My only gripes were that again, the big plan by 5th column makes the Vs come out smelling like roses. Seriously, if Anna is that good at being a ruthless, clever leader than we humans should just be conquered and be done with it. I did not like that they pinned their big plan on Lisa's ability to kill her mother. I also wasn't a fan of new-Lisa being "matured" and ready for breeding so quickly. That felt like a bit of a ret-con. Especially after the discussions of Anna and old-Lisa about her mating skin and being almost ready to breed.
    And where did the scientist and Ericka's lover disappear to?
    I don't know about the scientist but the thing I was wondering about Hobbs was whether his disappearance had anything to do with his double(triple) agent thing with Marcus.

    I thought it was a great finale and hope that if the show isn't renewed, we at least get a TV movie or to wrap it up.
