V: The Final Battle | 1983
Buoyed by the enthusiastic response to the two-part 1983 sci-fi adventure about a group of freedom fighters who do battle in Los Angeles with an invading army of aliens from another world professing peace but actually represent a reptilian race with a Nazi-like philosophy, NBC ordered (from a different production company) this three-part continuation of the story. Its equally satisfying reception (rating-wise) encouraged the network to schedule "V" as a weekly series in the 1984-85 season, beginning with a repeat showing of the first ten hours of the saga (the initial movie and the miniseries). Marc Singer and Faye Grant continue as the leaders of the freedom fighters; Jane Badler is the seductive but sinister alien leader. Emmy Award nominations: makeup, special visual effects, and film sound editing.
