I don't know if I'm going to continue watching V. If the writers avoid such an obvious plot problem as this, it can only go downhill in future episodes.

There's a V in Evolution
But there's no evolution in V, the new series on ABC. The visitors are from another planet but look exactly like humans. However, the visitors surely evolved, just like us, from lower form of life. The nondeterministic forces that caused the evolution of humans would be different on another planet, and hence, the outcome of the evolutionary process would also be different. It would be practically impossible for the evolutionary processes on two different planets to result in the exact same species.
