I have little interest in the show at this point, but the sky turning red was a big development and I want to see more on that.

I think I'm going to hold off until the end of the season again. Not sure I'm that interested in watching.

That was my bad. Aragorn had alerted me of the needed change, but I goofed up.
It's been corrected. I throw myself upon the mercies of Elizabeth Mitchell!

If this had been Morena circa Firefly, I would say she was the hottest one on the show. But because of the short hair, I give the edge to Elizabeth Mitchell. Vandervoort ain't half bad either.

I didn't realize this was on at 9pm tonight, I thought it was still on at 10. I guess I'll have to PVR the Pacific broadcast.

Re: V: "Red Rain" - Jan. 4 - Grading & Discussion

Average. I had decided to give up on it and didn't finish watching the last 4 episodes from last season but there wasn't anything on so I thought why not.

The show has all the issues I had last year--bland characters, sloppy writing i.e. letting Ryan back into the group and not considering they sent a drone to follow him back to their secret meeting place. No real rhyme or reason for Anna cutting off contact with Earth fueling distrust and chaos. Now the priest is trusting Chad Decker and the priest is publicly rejecting the visitors--that won't draw their attention.

I hope they aren't going down the tired old road of interbreeding--hopefully there is something more to it. And the idea of luuuuuuuuuuurve and human/Cylon/Visitor breeding is no more interesting or compelling than in its last several iterations on other genre shows. And did we really need a dream sequence at the start as a misdirection-that is so cliched. And the riot scene with Tyler and Erica getting tossed about was awfully executed and you just felt bad for Elizabeth.

The only really interesting parts were the revelation of the Visitor skeleton, the connection to Tyler's birth and Diana's intro--I'll let it pass that she kept her human form and was all decked out because it looks like she might have been corrupted by her human emotions and probably wanted to keep her human form.

Average for me as well. Erica and the resistance seem so casual investigating things in public that she never seems to get discovered working with the 5th column. Thy need to fire some of the writers and get a fresher, tighter approach.
