TV Review: V (2009) Season 1, Ep. 5: Welcome to the War

V (2009) is back with its fifth episode, entitled Welcome to the War. The Visitors had FBI agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell)’s son (Logan Huffman) on broad their ship, wouldn’t let her go up and see him and the FBI and the govenrment did nothing about it? Right. A terrorist and a mercenary for hire is on a V list of potential threats and wasn’t killed years ago? I buy that too. Its thought out and thorough of them. It would have been far more plausible if the Visitors could never find him to kill but the FBI infiltrator V had his whereabouts on his harddrive for God knows how long and did nothing about it. Why? And the terrorist just happens to be on US soil and in the same town as Special Agent Evans. That is extremely convenient. The writer on this episode, Scott Rosenbaum, should have gotten off of his ass. There are far too many examples of lazy writing in this episode and on this show. The 5 Things that will Hinder V (2009) from Succeeding should be updated. I am looking forward to seeing what is in Valerie Stevens (Lourdes Benedicto)’s belly. She’s in for a surprise. The copulation scene between Anna (Morena Baccarin) and her chosen one was well orchestrated. I liked how she turned the guy’s head away during it. The monster ending was unnecessary. I am sure she had other food sources on that ship.
