TV Review: V (2010): Season 1, Ep.11: Fruition

V (2010) Season 1, episode 11, entitled Fruition, establishes the presence of something very important, a disease that targets only lizards. To the Vs, this disease could be devastating.  Lisa (Laura Vandervoort)’s broken legs and V healing center scene, especially when her mother arrives, were excellent albeit short. Kyle Hobbs (Charles Mesure)’ betrayal for his own self-interest was a refreshing turn of events. I’m guessing that Lisa is going to try and stop the 999 soldier Vs from being born but how will she stop Anna (Morena Baccarin) from laying another thousand eggs again? By the end of this season, I’m guessing Lisa will be a full-fledged member of the 5th Column. One thing that I do not like about V healing tech is that it is too quick and Star Trekkie. They wave a magic stick and broken bone is healed through the skin instantly. If their healing tech is that good, why not invent a suit that their infiltrators, assassins, and soldiers wear that heals their injuries in the field? A body armor med-suit. Besides head shots, this would make them almost invisible. Show producers can’t have the Vs be that smart I guess because if they really were that smart, that would have killed off all potential resistance threats, including scientists, before making their presence known to the world.
