Last week started out pretty slowly with the spoilers. Space had two interviews with Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. Padalecki talks about Castiel being up to dirty tricks to win the War in Heaven; Ackles talks about how the introduction of …

Review: V (2009) 2.09: “Devil in a Blue Dress”

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

This show should be called ‘E, for Exposition’. As usual, we have large chunks of the episode dedicated to characters who spew dialogue as though it were an infomercial, busily reminding us of their intentions and purposes. Anna and her cohorts even talk right next to a gathering of hundreds of reporters. Because, on Earth, nobody can read lips!

The show opens with the humans figuring out at that the new buildings constructed by …

Ratings for the show have gone down again. Cancellation rumours re-surface.

A couple of interesting items on behind-the-scenes stuff appeared online. One focuses on the special effects (It’s a podcast) and the other on the set design (A polypropylene chair for the show costs more than $600). Frankly, I’ve never liked the set design for the show, but there …

Ratings for V are holding steady. Which might just save the struggling show. It is still not getting much love from critics.

Just in case this gig doesn’t work out, Morena Baccarin is doing a guest role on The Mentalist.

As you know, a number of characters are set to be killed during the finale (Last week’s TV Guide …

The ratings of the show have finally increased. Is this the lifeline our alien enemies need?

The title and summary of the season finale has been revealed. It is called “Mother’s Day”. Lisa stages a coup against her mother, which has “devastating results”. The episode will air March 15.

Many characters will be killed in the finale, say cast members and

Review: V (2009) 2.07: Birth Pangs

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

V has never quite learned how to be a good sci-fi show, but it has discovered how to be a wacky, campy one, which can command some attention. Sure, the first half flounders, but the second half is a delightful barrage of stuff. Khan! Starchild! Badler! Yes, characters are stupid and no, the dialogue isn’t any better, but with all the pimping of teenagers and a gigantic egg stashed in the freezer, the show has finally become …

Review: V (2009) 2.06: Siege

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I have a solution to ensure V gets a third season: it must be broadcast without an audiotrack and Tyler must die. With the atrocious dialogue and the worst teenager in the history of recent science-fiction out of the way (Wesley, I liked you better than this dude), this show may have a chance.

This episode was no award-winner. Aside from the bad dialogue, there were the usual plotholes (more on that later) and stupid characters doing …

There’s a rumour that Erica and Hobbes will get together during sweeps week. Aside from that, it’s very quiet on the spoilers front. Yeah, there are trailers for the next episode going around showing Ryan will be tortured, but isn’t torture becoming the common denominator of this show? What to do this week…let’s torture another character! Oh, plus, Erica Evans get taken …

V‘s ratings continue to drop, but that’s not stopping the producers from ending the show on a cliffhanger. The V Files has an interview with executive producer Steve Pearlman. He  says that in the finale, viewers will get to see “the Full Monty – The whole lizard”. Will it be to little, too late?

Jane Badler is still promoting …

You’ve probably figured it out by now, but the fourth episode of V was preempted by President Obama’s speech. A trailer of the episode can be found here.

The series seems to be doing well in DVR playbacks, numbers which may well help it when talks of a third season begin.

The biggest news this week was Jane Badler’s promotional …

Well, in case you were thinking alien reptiles are soon to be extinct, think again. Executive producer Steve Pearlman recently said a third season of the show is still a possibility and the ratings are not that bad.

Joel Gretsch talked about playing a priest: “You don’t want to offend people…You don’t want to be too righteous, there’s a relationship …

Ratings don’t bode well for V. Will it survive into a third season? Rumours about its cancellation are sprouting like mushrooms after the rain.

Morena Baccarin gave a recent interview, in which she said the alien baby will be an important character and Anna will develop feelings towards it. That’s probably because Anna has started to realize Lisa isn’t queen …
