"V" lands on ABC on Nov. 3, and the Visitors are approximately the 4,723rd alien race to make contact with Earth in TV and movie history.

If you remember the original "V" from the 1980s, you already know that the Visitors, despite their human appearance and gestures of friendship, do not have mankind's best interests at heart. Will the series be able to keep enough narrative juice flowing in the story of human resistance to alien invaders? The pilot is pretty strong, which gives us hope that it will join the ranks of the best alien-invasion tales in this list -- and not the space junk that clutters the rest of it.
