Anyone watching this show. I find it very relevant and interesting. I can see parallels between their infiltration and certain religious groups that shall remain nameless.

But what I find more interesting is what Wiki has to say on the subject...

Quote:
As the original miniseries was inspired by the novel It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis and has been called "a modern retelling of how the Nazis rose to power in Germany,"[3] the re-imagined series has been accused of being an allegory of the presidency of Barack Obama.[16][17][18] In his review of the show, Troy Patterson of Slate points out that bloggers and journalists had noticed parallels between the show's premise and the Barack Obama administration, and writes that "if the show is to have the symbolic import that we expect from a science-fiction story, this is the only possible way to read V as a coherent text."[16] Lisa de Moraes of The Washington Post noted in her review that the fact the series was debuting on the one-year anniversary of Obama's election "was not lost on some ... TV critics" and also remarked that the use of phrases present in the series (such as "hope", "change", and "Universal Health Care" being offered by the Visitors) made it seem as though "Lou Dobbs had taken over the network."

Ya I think it has more to do with that cult that shall remain nameless.

A lot of people have seen similarities to BO however from what I understand production started before BO took office so they say it is just a coincidence.

Personally I find it kinda slow right now. I'll give it a few more episodes before I drop it.
