Dear Show: I Have to Break Up with You (V)

So, it was (sort of) fun while it lasted: your cheesy goodness as a reboot of the early 80s NBC juggernaut, V, but it’s turned a corner and now you’re trying to outgore yourself every week and I’m kind of over it. I don’t want to watch the show that you’re trying to be — something darker and edgier and more menacing. I liked your larkish tendencies and your over-the-top angst. I loved your cast, and your Vancouver setting, and the awesome HITG! aspect of your guest roster.

I really, really, really don’t like the torture porn. And I don’t like the drawn-out arcs where we rehash the same conversations about things every week and get nowhere. I’ll probably still DVR you and speed through to watch the scenes with the folks who I like and the scenes that don’t make me shudder, but I won’t be watching in real-time anymore. Good luck with the rest of the season. I hope that you get to come back next fall, for the cast’s sake, and for the fans who do like the change in direction. It’s just not for me. I hope we can still be friends.
