I’ve managed to see the V’s pilot episode, the 2009 remake anyway. And there’s a scene where we see a panoramic view of the spaceship’s guts above New York. Instantly I recognized some buildings because they exist for real and in fact they are in my city, Valencia.
Take a look at the pictures. Next time I visit La Ciudad de Las Artes y Las Ciencias I’ll look at those buildings with suspicious eyes ;)
