If you're looking for Marc Singer to come shooting sh*t up with a ray gun, you're going to remain disappointed.

That said, it definitely picks up, though it remains a more cerebral show than the original "V."

Certain aspects are definetly superior. For example, the V sleeper agents, and the fact they have cloned human flesh over their reptilian bodies, rather than a latex face mask. Also, the funny voices they later retconned out did nothing at all.

But, after four episodes, we see four people in the "resistence", no advanced weapons, or otherwise action except the warehouse attack, and the flu shot explosion.

And seeing Marc Singer with a ray gun would have taken it from good to uber awesome :D

Season 2 includes an ex-Mossad agent. That's all I'm saying.

Wait until you catch up to last night's ep, Mark. :twisted:

Are you familiar with the NYPD's Bureau of Special Services?

I find the show is interesting though slow at times, but I enjoy it enough to watch it.

BOSS is sort of like a SWAT unit, but specially trained for counter-terrorism.

Funny you should say that, guess who just showed up.

Won't spoiler it yet, but anyone who has stuck with this show to the last episode will be well rewarded. I only hope the show is renewed.

Yeah, last night's show was some real sh*t. If any more main - or at least important - characters bought agricultural property last night, I would suspect Dan Abnett was involved. Well, a fine mess our protagonists are in:
Spoiler:
Hopefully Ares will do a damned sight more now than they have so far.

PS - I had read about Singer making an appearance, but I didn't really believe it.

Sure would be nice if they would show it on Hulu. I can't figure out any reasonable explanation why they don't.

I guess I'll have to wait for the DVD.

abc.com isn't even showing full eps anymore, but they are out there - day after broadcast. F***ed if I remember a site, but once this season my DVR crapped the bed and I went to find an ep the next day. Search "V full episodes" or something and you should be able to find one, maybe for the expense of downloading a free codec.
