V Episode 10: "Hearts and Minds" Review

I've got two minds about this episode yet again falling back on the "12 hours earlier" thing, as I've already noted I think that's a really played out move on TV. But on the other hand, when you open a show with someone shooting a rocket launcher, you've got my attention. So I'm conflicted!

Actually, overall, I liked this episode quite a bit. I don't know if it needed the flashback situation, since we saw Anna plan to outwit the Fifth Column early on either way. But it put our heroes in a very tense, unsettling situation and felt a little more nuanced than some V episodes have been.

Anna making the Fifth Column out to be human-killing terrorists is a smart and diabolical move on her part, and they continue to do a good job of making her a clever and credible threat. It's kind of a stretch that she didn't simply have living humans on board the shuttle she tricked the Fifth Column into blowing up, because it's not like she'd care about any of them รข€“ and using those already dead added one more potential problem for them down the road (even if they managed to squelch it). But overall, it was a well done power play on the part of the V leader.
