    By Vman5050
    The only problem here at this site is the search does not seem to pick it up unless you dig. I had to go through the series to get to the miniseries. Oh, and where is the soundtrack, it is one of the best for sci-fi, up there with the x-files soundtrack.
  • Still hooked 20+ years later

    I loved these mini-series as a kid and have them on video- loved the short lived series as well. Who wasn't creeped out when the lizard baby was born?!
  • v - the original miniseries

    By cinefi
    this is the most original sci-fi series made fot tv; this the original one and the follow up had a generation with their eyes over the tv on those 80's nigths, it's a good choice that ITUNES decided to incluide it on their library
  • V is the best I've seen ever!!

    I grew up with this show, and I have to say I love it still today!! I just wish this series would get a good remake. Key word "good".
  • Still Great!!!

    Going back and rewatching the best mini-series of the 80s I realized that the acting by all of the supporting cast was truly top notch. Marc Singer and Faye Grant are great in their leading roles, but the supporting parts really give this mini-series its heart- Leonardo Cimino, Richard Lawson, George Morfogen, Blair Tefkin, and Bonnie Bartlett really shine! Although some of the special effects are dated it's still not too bad. The plot is still very engaging and deep. The one criticism I would have to say is that the producers might want to rethink keeping the dedication at the beginning to "All freedom fighters past, present, and future" in today's Iraq insurgency climate.
  • What was old is new again!

    Out of all of the exciting scenes in this mini-series, THESE are the 30 second clips iTunes picked to showcase? Don't let that dissuade you. During it's original air on television (NBC, i think:), this was bar none the scariest most riveting entertainment aired on television up to that point. I will never forget being on the school bus the morning after the revelation that the Visitors were not all they appeared to be (who can forget the "taking out the eyeballs and eating the mouse" scene??). And even at 13 years old I could see the easily drawn parallels between this (extremely) entertaining television and the Cold War Reagan years when a Republican in the White House had convinced a nation that their complete annihiliation lay just around the corner from an untrustworthy nation who was not what they appeared to be and wanted nothing more than to destroy our way of life. Of course, the difference is that the Visitors really DID want to enslave us and destroy our way of life. Wait a minute...come to think of it... isn't it funny how things have a tendancy to come full circle? Here we are again, back in the same scenario with our government (albeit with a different country this time), so what a perfect time for this re-release!

  • V: The Original Miniseries

    By Humble Me
    I watched this, in fact I was glued to the T.V., miniseries and the follow up series "The Final Battle" with facination and excitement. When they came out on VHS and then DVD I got them and watch them over and over. What a story line and, if I might add, a great morale, this has. This shows us in an entertaining way how vulnerable and gullible mankind can be. Just sit back and let it happen and you will see what I mean.
