"V"

Anyone else looking forward to this? I watched the original when I was a kid 25 years ago or so and now they redid it. This show was the shit in the early 80's although watching the original now it looks like 80's cheese. I hope this one is decent.

Hope this is good!

Lost is ending soon so ABC needs another good show to ride it out with.

One of my former co-workers from SV is one of the female leads on V and just from talking to her I'm not too sure this show will survive, theres been a who bunch of production problems and script issues. The studio already shut down production on V last month for 16 days because of script & creative problems and now production has shut down again for another 2 weeks. The production is becoming a bit of a clusterfuck.

All I remember about the original series are the commercials, and they kind of scared the shit out of me.. I think I would have been 4 or 5 at the time.

I'd rather see an Alien Nation reboot without the wholesome message the original had.

Loved the premiere. Having not seen the miniseries in the 80s I didn't know the basic storyline and thought it was a little slow for the first half. Once they reveal where they are going with the show I was hooked. What did you guys think?

Spoiler!

I watched the early one as well and thought it was pretty good. It seems to be the same story as the original which is cool, I watch at least a couple more episodes and see where it goes.

Saw quite a few good shots of the building I worked in last summer. I noticed they edited out any logos but It's still easy to pick out.

OMG I recognized almost every setting they shot at lol. Its like the V's visited Vancouver!

BTW are any of the producers or something related to Serenity/Firefly? I noticed they hired two actors from Serenity which I found odd.

Likely just a coincidence that there are two actors from Firefly in the show. If there were more I would be more suspicious. Sci-fi actors often join other sci-fi shows for some reason. It definitely wasn't a coincidence that Alan Tudyk was on Dollhouse however.
