Season two shocks, renewal possibilities and more with the writer-producer

Regular readers know that I've been up and down on "V" over its two seasons, but a big part of why I've stuck with the show has been Scott Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum came onto "V" late in the game, taking over as showrunner after the pilot and several episodes had already been produced. Before coming to "V," IMDB lists Rosenbaum's credits as "The Shield" and "Chuck." Note that I didn't write, "Rosenbaum's credits *included* 'The Shield' and 'Chuck.'" Nope. Rosenbaum produced on both shows and wrote some of their finest episodes. And those are his series credits. That's a pretty pure and admirable resume, right?
With "V" on the bubble at ABC, Rosenbaum joined star star Elizabeth Mitchell and guest star (and original series star) Marc Singer at San Francisco's WonderCon last weekend. In the press room afterwards, I had a long chat with Rosenbaum about the second season's shocking finale, about the contingencies around possible renewal and about whether or not I should feel guilty that I'm rooting for Morena Baccarin's Anna.
This is actually a really, really long interview, but I'm glad HitFix's videographer/editor/mastermind Alex Dorn left it intact, because I think that for fans of "V," this will be interesting stuff.Â
