A memory has been floating in and out of my conciuness for weeks now. This memory comes from high school and either history or geography class.
The TV movie was released in 1983 followed by the 1984 TV series and that’s the one we spent the whole term watching. Best teacher ever right? I can’t remember the clear educational reasoning behind it all these years later. But that was one class I never showed up late too.
In 2009 they made a remake of the TV series, one I got to watch well after finishing school.
If you haven’t guessed it yet I’m talking about V (nothing to do with the drink). I honestly think it made such an impression due to being “forced” to watch it at school. It was also a very interesting look at another civilization ingraining and integrating into a civilization in order to …. ok no spoiler alerts for those who haven’t seen it or read the books. But all these years later the parallels that can still be drawn in our world today are astounding.
