This has been sat on my shelf for an age but i thought i would give it a go. And its been well worth it. Just a shame i didnt listen to it months ago. Kenneth takes us through pretty much everything we need to know about V. His original ideas for the show, the networks "ideas", casting, production, budget. He is also one of those great film makers that enjoys pointing out the flaws in the film, be they accidental or ones on purpose for budgetary reasons.
For fans of V....give this a listen. Itll make you love the series even more.

Finally got the chance to listen to this one recently & it's worth at least one go 'round. Lots of insight into the production of this tv film that still stands up almost 30 yrs later. Only thing is that, while Johnson has his moments of great description of the production & the themes involved in the story, it's just as repetitive. He seems obsessed mostly w/the lighting on-set & hearing him continually talk about how great the light looks throughout the film gets annoying.
