I read V: The Second Generation, when it came out in paperback, and it defintiely captured the story of the Visitors and the Resistance. It should it, it was written by the original creator of the series.
Turns out ABC is prepping a remake.. Sadly not a sequel, so we’ll never know how the original story continued, but we’ll see the story unfold in a more modern times view.
Hopefully it makes it to the small screen, I’d watch it!
