Must be the cycle of time at work - oops, wrong mythos!!
It looks fairly average, certainly not 'I must see that....' kinda stuff.
But quite a few familiar faces (Vandervoort, Baccarin, the guy from 4400). Obviously they figure padding out the cast with some genre familiarity might help them along.
Actually the arival of mother ships in V was preempted by guerilla warfare in El Salvador and was dedicated to all resistance fighters..."WW II"
V had real meaning.
This is just network desperation and fanfare.
