Human-like aliens arrive on Earth with friendly smiles and a secretly sinister agenda in this fantasy drama. (Note: Season 2 starts in January.) While this V lacks the pizzazz of the original 1983 miniseries, goose bumps abound. Plus, Lost fave Elizabeth Mitchell scores as an earthling out to save her son from the dark side. (Warner, $40)
