“V Wars”

If you are a friend of mine or a regular reader of my articles, then you are knowledgeable my “Calgon moments” are dancing and watching classical horror movies circa the1930s to the 1950s.

The 1950s classic horror movies are especially special to me for the fact that they reflected potential horrible possibilities if people continued to contaminate the planet with radiation from nuclear bomb testing/usage. Remember this was the early days of The Atomic Age. They warned behemoth mutations could occur or the radiation could arouse prehistoric beasts from their slumber. they were quite political.

A different frightening scenario in present times could occur. About a year or two ago, I reported in one of my articles that scientists were warning us that with the rapidly defrosting of man-made climate change on our polar ice caps. Scientists believed we are at risk from ancient prehistoric viruses/bacteria being released into the world. The frightening fact, they reported is our modern-day bodies may not be prepared to deal with this possibility. Well, like always because of apathy and greed it seems like it fell on deaf ears.

I hadn’t heard any more about this until I saw the new original Netflix original series entitled “V Wars.” It was so good that I was glued to my TV for 2 days. I watched the entire 10 episodes of Season 1. “V Wars” is based on a novel by Jonathan Mayberry. It premiered on December 5th, 2019.

The series tells the struggle of two close best friends: Dr. Luther Swan and his bestie Michael Fayne as they come upon a combination of an ancient bacteria coupled with a deadly ancient bacteria caused by climate change. Humans are turning into vampires that are called “Bloods.” These vampires are not your traditional vampires in the way you become one and how it is spread amongst the populace. The story is a mixture of climate change and government corruption.

These Vampires move around during the daytime. The way people become these vampire-like creatures is untraditional as well.

Even though it is way too early to tell, it looks like the main characters so far are Dr. Luther Swan, Michael Fayne, Kaylee Vo, and Jimmy Saint.

Actor Ian Somerhalder plays Dr. Luther Swan.
Actor Adrian Holmes plays Michael Fayne.
Actor Michael Greyeyes who plays FBI agent Jimmy Saint.

Actress Jacky Lai who plays blogger Kaylee Vo.

Mr. Greyeyes is the only actor I recognize. He was a regular on “Fear The Walking Dead.”

Even though “V Wars” premiered early this month, there are already talks about a Season 2 which is scheduled for either Winter 2020 or Spring 2021. If you are into horror like me, check it out for yourself and see if you agree with me.
