Theatrical report

DVD is the perfect medium for series like V (and Friends) because you can skip a whole chapter in five seconds, including the time to find the remote - literally.

As a long-time fan of V, I really enjoyed this version. the picture and sound are even better than when it aired on TV. I was hoping that both of the mini-series would be packaged together, but no banana. Hopefully the second one will come out soon.
