You have no idea the impact this show had on our lives that summer after graduation from High School. There was no such think as a VCR to record each episode of this legendary series. It was appointment TV and if you missed it you couldn't go back to school the next day. There was no YOU TUBE video that would help you fake it. That was when we committed to our entertainment involving alien lizard peoples.

The science fiction series "V" ran from late 1984 to early 1985 and was the most expensive TV show to be produced at that time, costing one million dollars per episode.

Aliens pretending to be friendly come to Earth and are received openly. The aliens have disguised themselves to look just like humans. When it is discovered that the aliens' planet is dying and that they have come to rape the Earth of its natural resources, the war for Earth begins. An important key to the humans' success is distinguishing their own from who the aliens are.

How could you not. It was mega HUGE. Especially that rat eating scene.

I really liked the mini-series when it aired.
