V has finally sold me. It was a long, hard sell, but I have to say that after watching "Red Sky," the first season finale, I'm truly happy that V got picked up for a second season. I was fairly content with it with ABC announced it at upfronts, but now, I'm definitely excited, FlashForward or no FlashForward. The characterization for "Red Sky" was top notch, and I honestly can't think of one thing I didn't like about the episode. Well, they refused to show us Valerie and Ryan's baby, one of the biggest cop-outs in history. But other than that, I found V to be a worthwhile watch, and was honestly better than the preceding episode of LOST, at least as far as pulse-pounding octane goes.
I'll get straight to watch we're all thinking: why is the sky red? Anna, angered by the murder of her soldier eggs, decided to up the ante on humanity by having their off-planet ships (who seem a lot closer than they did last time) turn the sky a bright red. Is this just a fear tactic used to get the humans to surrender, or is it some sort of toxin that kills humans? I'm hoping it's the former, because if it's the latter, season two is going to be a lot shorter than thirteen episodes.
