Season 2 starts this Tuesday.  I don't remember much, but I think we left off with the people of earth finally knowing the Vs are a threat.  If so, it should be a fairly fresh start.

Thanks for the reminder. I didn't really care for the first season but it's a cool idea so I'm willing to stick with it a little while longer.

I like the series more than most on here and I can't wait.

I hope they do a better job with the footage "onboard the ships", but I'm not holding my breath.  The greenscreen CGI stuff was so distractingly bad.

I may star watching again now that Jane Badler is back reprising her role.

Interesting premiere. I knew that opening was a dream! Not sure if it seems contrived to deduce that Erica was experimented with by the aliens. Or if it is a cool thing to be revealed later to be some kind of larger thing. Why would they want to use humans for breeding if the queen can make more babies. Unless there is some kind of quality they are looking for that results from the hybrid. Sort of a Battlestar Galactica vibe. ( I'm still watching that series on BD, not done yet!) Jane Badler's reveal was kind of cool, though that lighting wasn't kind to her face. :)

I was thinking the same thing.

I knew the opening sequence was a dream, but wished like heck it wasn't.   This show could have drastically changed it's tone and went a totally different direction if they had pulled that trigger, and showed the earth shockingly now at war etc. etc. etc. The show could have changed tone quickly and it could have went somewhere I think would have been entertaining. Instead "dream" means we are likely to get a season of cloak and dagger. Boring. You could have years of a series of small resistence movement vs. the V with a third faction still believing "peace" is possible.

At least the writers are trying to write some curiousity into the dialogue between characters in terms of broad motivations.  Let's see if this "Species" spin on things (and it's a call back to the old "V" plotlines), but hopefully with a fresh twist or two on the product of such mating attempts.

As someone who was pretty critical of the first season, I have to say that I enjoyed the premiere.

I was hoping some character in the show would have said (w/r/t/ red rain): "They from Mars!!! They're turning Earth into Mars!!!"

I wonder why they still have to refer to themselves as V's. I haven't seen the original mini series since it originally aired, so I don't recall what they called themselves.


I forgot to mention, that sequence were Anna whips one of the ship captain's face off and then kills him was fun gratuitous CGI effects to finally show what they look like. And the baby too.

That was a cool sequence as well, but, given the very form fitting dresses Anna wears, where does she hide that tail?

We saw something running under her skin before it popped out, so it's internal.  My leap on Erica's phosphorus wouldn't have been to "They experimented on me!" but "What if Ty's dad is a V?"

And when Anna takes the hand of one of the soldiers before she shuts down their life support made me wonder how those long spindly fingers fit onto human sized hands! Posted Image


I was wondering also, in the original series, I don't recall any problem with the V's when they ripped off the rubber human skin. In this series, the human outer skin seems to be living and they seem to feel pain when it's damaged. I guess I am referring to last season when Anna ordered a bad V to be skinned. What I wasn't sure was happening was if they were skinning his human skin off? That didn't seem too pleasant a prospect for that V.

Count me in as one who enjoyed last night's episode more than any hour of the first season. Considering the behind-the-scenes chaos and rapidfire succession of showrunners, it's not surprising that the quality control was nil. Hopefully ABC used the extended hiatus to put a team into place that can maintain at least this level of quality. The introduction of Bret Harrison as the research assistant was a good start. I loved him on Reaper and his character here has more spunk than any of the existing characters.

The show made a point of stating that Tyler's father wasn't a full genetic match during the first season, and how his sense of being betrayed led to the divorce. He assumed that the reason he wasn't a complete genetic match was because Tyler was the product of an affair Erica had. It's increasingly likely that he is Tyler's biological father, but that a serious chunk of alien DNA spliced in there threw off the paternity test.

Considering that they are reptilian creatures underneath, it's likely that the V's real name isn't pronouncable with a human mouth, and that the constraints of speaking in a human skin prevent them from speaking their native language.

Exactly. If they experimented on her, what does that say about Tyler? If Ryan's daughter is on one end of the alien-human hybrid spectrum, it's likely that Tyler's on the other.

Who's to say they do? The Visitor species is clearly highly differentiated, with different body types depending on their intended purpose. All of the Visitor types we've seen so far are able to fit into a human skin. It's entirely possible that there are many other variations that cannot.
USA Today got an exclusive render of what the Visitors look like under their human skin. It is not very humanoid at all:
