Tonight's episode of "V" concludes with a scene where one guy we don't care about cuts a deal with an alien we don't care about. And that deal is one we're pretty much just finding out is in the works. And we don't really care about the deal either, even though it's supposed to be setting up the big season finale next week, the episode that's supposed to make us want to see the show come back from the brink of cancellation. Now, theoretically, this is all interesting, since it should have some big implications for both sides of this war, but in actuality, it's really kind of pointless. Why should we care? "V" doesn't know. It just wants to do some things that it knows serialized dramas are supposed to do.
