Phil's Quick Capsule Review

My Favourite… Mickey Jones Film

As death continues it’s relentless march through the gifted and talented of TV and film, My Favourite… celebrates those we have lost by taking a look at a slice of their best work. Well sometimes best, sometimes just the one I like the most.

This time out: My Favourite…. Mickey Jones (1941-2018) TV show!


V: The Final Battle (1994)

A small group of human resistance fighters fight a desperate guerilla war against the genocidal extra-terrestrials who dominate Earth.

V: The Final Battle was essential viewing for me growing up.  The sequel to the more political in tone V Mini Series, The Final Battle was action packed and introduced two iconic characters – Michael Ironside as Ham Tyler and Mickey Jones as Chris Farber two former CIA operatives drawn into their own war against the Visitors.  Farber served as the explosives and munitions expert for the group and was Tyler’s right hand man when trouble kicked off.  Farber was loyal, deadly and essential and Jones gave this burley character heart and purpose.
