Sci-Fi Television update

‘V’ ‘V‘ premiered Tuesday night in the  US and I was quite impressed.  I held off posting this until after the premiere showed in Ireland and Europe.  I really liked the intro ‘Where were you when JFK was assisinated?’  ‘Where were you on 9/11 ?’  ‘Where were you this morning ?’ ! The Visitors were quite open with their interests, they need […]
