The return of V, the anticipated ABC series, just didn’t do it for me tonight. Well except for the last thirty seconds where Anna went all praying mantis on the sperm donor for her ‘army,’ sporting a row of angler-fish-esque fangs. Nasty!
Now I know that they have to build up for future episodes but come on, you can’t keep depending on that single shocking moment to redeem what was essentially a very slow and boring episode. Some good lines like Erica’s “If I have to cross the line to blow that bitch out of the sky, I’ll do it.”
But overall, maybe just a couple stars tonight. I expected a lot more tonight after the long hiatus. Disappointed, I won’t lie.
V airs on ABC at 10pm on Tuesdays.
