V: The Original Miniseries
V is the 1983 classic science fiction miniseries which originally aired over two nights on NBC. In the miniseries, an alien race, who come to be known as "The Visitors", lands on Earth with the promise of peace and prosperity for humanity. When the truth behind their arrival is uncovered, several humans then agree to form an underground resistance movement against the Visitors. The story was continued in the 1984 sequel miniseries (V: The Final Battle) and in a weekly format (V: The Series). The premise would be reimagined in a 2009 television remake that aired on ABC.
