A year after Liberation Day, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.
The evil Diana, captured and set to stand trial for her crimes against the human race, is kidnapped by corrupt corporate magnate Nathan Bates, who wants to know the secrets of the Visitors' advanced ...
The Earth has been invaded by lizard-like beings from another planet called Visitors. A small resistance of rebels led by photojournalist Mike Donovan, Dr. Julie Parrish and mercenary Ham Tyler fight the Nazi-like reign. The aliens usually appear disguised as humans, and are led by Diana, their queen. Written by

In the first two mini-series, the Visitors spoke with an electronically modulated voice. The sound processing, however, was dropped for the ongoing series. This created a continuity problem with the two mini-series as the Visitors were able to infiltrate human strongholds and vice-versa without their different voices giving them away. See more »
Now that we know that the 'Visitors' are lizard like aliens, it seems odd that they continue to disguise themselves as humans, especially when they are on the mother ships. Obviously this was done to reduce makeup and effects costs, but it doesn't make sense in terms of narrative. See more »

Idiot. If you had, you'd be dead.

I remember watching the original mini-series in the mid eighties and how it caught my imagination and sense of wonder about the real possibilities of humanity's first contact with an advanced civilization.This mini-series was just amazing as was the second mini-series.Then this came out and it was definitely a diminishing of quality across the boards.I don't think I even made it through all 19 episodes back then in 1985.
It's now 2005 and I only invested in the DVD collection because I've been reading books by David Icke who is this conspiracy theorist who believes our planet has been ruled for the last ten thousand years by a race of shape-shifting reptilian beings from another galaxy who are posing to this day as humans and that they are mostly the ruling elite in all fields of human society.It was in his books that he suggested I watch "V".So I purchased the series and have just viewed the entire 19 episodes.
Irregardless of David Icke's theories I have found V:The Complete Series the most fun I've had in years.Yeah, the series is badly acted and the characters are pretty one dimensional and in the case of Diana and Lydia absolutely campy, but so what? The original Flash Gordon serial is campy and the effects are laughable but I can still enjoy that as much as the first three episodes of Star Wars. V:The Complete Series is 1980's television at it's most fun.I suggest just putting your brain aside while watching this series and you'll be just fine.
