V: The Mini Series is widely accepted as one of the best Sci-Fi mini series to ever air on network television. (V: The mini Series is not to be confused with V: The Series, which is equally renowned for being a Retro Fail.)

During the 1980s, we were constantly told that the Russians could land on our doorsteps at any time and we should be prepared for it at any time. As a 9 year old kid in 1983, I vividly remember being terrified that a Soviet missile was aimed directly at my house and soon it would appear with Yuri Andropov riding on it like Dr. Strangelove!
