The new ABC TV series “V” seems to be drawing a solid audience and may be helping us consider important issues facing our society today.
The original 1983 miniseries was reportedly related to a novel by Sinclair Lewis about the Nazis coming to power in Germany.
Yet, what if we look at the more literal context of the show – that extraterrestrial or unusual visitors of some kind have arrived, perhaps quite some time ago, and are among us?
In the original 1983 two-part miniseries, the 1984 three-part miniseries and the TV series that aired from 1984 to 1985, the visitors were portrayed as reptilian evil-doers who wanted to take over the Earth. Their human and friendly appearance was a cover for a more sinister agenda.
The new 2009 series, a “reimagining” of the 1983 TV miniseries, portrays a similar scenario.
What if there is some truth to a development like this? What if extraterrestrial or other kinds of visitors might arrive on Earth, or already have? Are they hostile? Are they friendly? Are there more than one kind? What might be their goals here? What activities are they conducting?
In the new show, Elizabeth Mitchell plays FBI agent Erica Evans. Each week, she and her allies discover more about the visitors.
Does our real-life FBI take an interest in this topic? According to some UFO research, J. Edgar Hoover definitely had an interest and FBI agents have been involved in these kinds of investigations over the years. Hoover reportedly complained that he was cut out of the loop by other U.S. military and intelligence organizations on this subject.
The Air Force’s “Project Bluebook,” based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, investigated UFO sightings for many years. But some researchers claim that his project was a cover story for other research and activities regarding real UFOs and unusual visitors.
Some researchers say that a group of military and scientific officials called “Majestic” was formed in the late 1940s to investigate and handle an alleged real and serious UFO and visitor situation.
When audiences watch the “V” TV series, many viewers probably reflect on some of these reports and accounts of actual government interest in UFOs and alleged extraterrestrial visitation.
We might also wonder if this TV show, and many other movies, TV programs, books and related communications efforts are simply entertainment or something more.
According to some researchers, efforts to prepare, orient and acclimate the American people and people around the world on this subject have been going on for decades.
