Yes "V" Can!

In 1983, America's NBC network aired a scifi-thriller miniseries called "V", which I really enjoyed watching as a child.

The premise of the original show was about aliens calling themselves "Visitors", coming to Earth in the name of friendship and promising to help society progress, bringing great gifts of advanced technology and cures for medical diseases. They immediately form friendship associations, and even a youth movement, and soon even begin integrating themselves into governments around the world - all to better expedite the new era of progress, they claim. Some soon discover that the Visitors have a more secret, darker agenda.

Now the ABC network plans to air a re-make of it in January:

A recap of the original is available here. You can also watch the finale of the original show online.
