Review: V 101 Pilot

FBI Counterterrorism Agent Erica Evans stares in disbelief at one of the 29 massive alien ships hovering over the major cities of the world. Erica makes her way through the panicked streets of New York to find her troubled teenage son, Tyler, just as a video image of Visitor’s High Commander, Anna, fills the sky. For an alien, Anna looks pretty darn human as she soothingly says, “Don’t be frightened. We mean you no harm.”

V 101 Pilot airs November 3, 2009.  Watch it streaming online on Hulu
