    I’ve been disappointed with V for the last couple episodes, they’re definitely skating on thin ice in my book. Episode 8 did kind of bring things back to a better place though. Hopefully it marks an end to a weak spot.

    Anybody else wondering if the big plot twist from the original series is still going to be the same one here? I’m wondering (though I have no alternative ideas) if they are going to surprise us and do something else.

    I do have to complain with Ryan’s explanation for why the V’s are running around with blades instead of guns — use a human gun! Just like that human sniper did. Duh!

    I don’t have cable, but I feel your pain for the ridiculous change of name of the sci-fi channel and for wrestling’s inclusion.

    Until next time…
