My 2¢: I loved the first mini-series. I liked most of the Final Battle; however, many of the storylines were too neatly wrapped up and the end (with glowing Elizabeth saving the day) was just cheesy. I was living in England when the show aired. We saw the two mini-series back-to-back. I had to wait years to see the series. The series had a workable premise. If only they'd tried to make it more of a political intrigue drama rather than a run-of-the-mill action, shoot-'em-up. I had hoped if Ken Johnson’s V: the Second Generation had gone into production that he would have still had Julie & Mike together. I think they made a really great couple. Probably the reason I disliked the series so much – other than what they did to the character of Robin (sigh!) – is that Julie & Mike start out in a very strong, committed relationship but by the end each have boyfriend/girlfriend-of-the-week syndrome. Sadly, given that TPTB went with the remake of V there's no chance the original characters will be making a comeback.
