This week, we have spoilers for Supernatural and new pilots:

Don’t forget that we’re looking for TV reviewers, specifically for the CW’s new pilot, Secret Circle and FOX’s Terra Nova.

If you want to review something for us, please check out our previous announcement and drop us a line. Silvia has started reviewing Game of Thrones. We …

This week, we have spoilers for V and Supernatural:

We are looking for a few good writers. We need new reviewers of The Vampire Diaries and The Walking Dead. We’ve previously covered them, but the positions are currently open. We’re also looking for reviewers of new shows, specifically: any of the three paranormal series (out of six pilots total) that have been ordered as pilots by the CW this fall: The Secret Circle, Heavenly and Awakening.…

V
(Tuesday nights, 9pm, ABC)
By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

We don’t know the fate of this series, but some people are saying a good showing by Body of Proof could spell the end for V.

On a happier note: if there is a season three, old timers might come back. Scott Rosenbaum, executive producer and V showrunner, spoke at WonderCon last weekend and said he would like to bring …

V
(Tuesday nights, 9pm, ABC)
By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Will it or will it not be cancelled? That continues to be the questions for this show. Although V is not getting much love, and its ratings were rather low, there is always the chance it might slip into a third season because the list of bubble shows this year is incredibly long.

Even if the show survives, it’ll face …

(Tuesday nights, 9pm, ABC)
By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Because we don’t know if this show will return, I am going to be collecting spoilers for V and for other alien-related shows starting next week. Yep. I’m taking about the Spielberg project.

V finished with better ratings that it had enjoyed in the previous two weeks, but it’s still nothing to gloat about. Most people are betting it’ll …

Review: V (2009) 2.10: Mothers Day

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

The season finale of V was a riveting hour of intrigue and action. Oh, wait. That was the show in the other universe. You know, the parallel Earth where they hired writers instead of minions of Dagon meant to torture me with an hour of what could only be described as a mess.

The last episode of the season was a rushed, contrived affair, with all the expository dialogue – of the variety of “Finally! My breeding …

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 …

V
(Tuesday nights, 9pm, ABC)
By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

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 …
