V: A Bright New Day
The Visitors are granted freedom of movement in the United States which Jack and Erica search for member’s of the resistance. Ryan finds he can trust no one.
This show is quickly sucking me in if only because I have so many questions I need to have answered. It’s a good way to keep people watching.
In “A Bright New Day” the Visitors are finally granted visas allowing them to move freely around the United States. Something we all know is a bad idea but this is the government after all. We also get more information on the resistance movement of the V’s in particular. The Fifth Column is a bit of an odd name but hopefully we’ll get some explanation about it and its original leader John May.
Erica is called in to find a mysterious human shooter at the V’s building and manages to discover a secret surveillance room. Maybe the V’s should work on getting better locks or surveilling the surveillance room. You’d think with all they’re technology they could have retinal scans or something. Anyways I can’t help wondering what they are using all this footage for. Is it just to make sure there is no resistance forming or is there more to it as well? Of course we also learn that the shooter is a V, something I was expecting. One thing I noticed was that Marcus looked as though he may have been genuinely frightened by this shooter. I’m thinking he may not have known about Anna’s plot and maybe we’ll even see him switching sides in this war.
Jack spends his time going through the list of people who have reported alien’s to the FBI. He manages to come across Georgie’s address and leaves his card with some woman there. I understand it’s hard switching to the not trusting mentality but really, that was a bad idea. I don’t know if there are any other fans of “The 4400” watching “V” but as Georgie checked behind Jack’s ear I couldn’t resist pointing out that Jack was one of The Marked.
I’m not terribly thrilled with Chad as a character so far. He’s rather uninteresting at this point so I’m hoping he’ll get a more exciting story line than just reporting in the future. Valerie too has very little too. It seems she may only be there to support Ryan’s character and account for his reasons to be in the resistance.
After years of science fiction shows it can sometimes be difficult for shows to surprise me. This week I was impressed to find that it is actually still possible. I never suspected Joshua would be a member of the Fifth Column and I certainly wasn’t expecting Lisa to be Anna’s daughter.
Only one more episode before “V” goes on hiatus until after the 2010 Olympics. I’m enjoying it so far and I hope the network won’t have killed it with the extended break.
