V (1984): S01E03 – Breakout


Introduction

V (also known as V: The Series) is an American science fiction television series that aired in the United States on NBC from 26 October 1984 to 22 March 1985.

It is a continuation of the V franchise about an alien invasion of Earth by a carnivorous race of reptilians known as “Visitors”, which was originally conceived by American writer, producer, and director Kenneth Johnson. Johnson, however, was not involved in the production of the weekly series.

Outline

Combatants held in a Visitor work camp face the flesh-consuming alien monster that guards the camp. Hunters of the 5-year old Starchild are unaware she has morphed into a fully grown woman.

Note: This episode was rejected by NBC in the series’ first run because of its violence. It was however shown during the reruns and was included in VHS and DVD releases. However, because of the switch in original order, this episode has continuity errors when watched in the original intended order. For example, while Ham meets Kyle for the first time in this episode, he then meets him again for the first time in the next episode. Robin meets up with the group during this episode, but is once again alone searching for help at the beginning of the next episode. There are also several other minor plot inconsistencies.
