"V" on ABC

Recommended Posts

I thought there was thread on "V" already but couldn't find it.

ABC has given a pilot order to a new take on the 1980s miniseries "V," which was about an alien invasion.

Written by "The 4400" co-creator/executive producer Scott Peters, the new "V" will center on a female Homeland Security agent.

Peters is executive producing the pilot with HDFilms principal Jason Hall.

I loathe the number of terrible remakes on TV and in theaters today, but if there were ever a series that badly needed a refresh it's this one. The original's special effects are so cheesy it's tough to watch.

Morena Baccarin (Serenity, "Firefly") will play a lead in ABC's "V," says The Hollywood Reporter.

"V," from WBTV, is a re-imagining of the 1980s miniseries about an invasion of aliens known as Visitors and the resistance against them.

Baccarin will play Anna, the leader of the Visitors who is remarkably knowledgeable about human culture and media manipulation.

Took me a minute to recognise Morena in that with her new hair. Looks good though, there's a decent cast at work here.

Never heard of this series, and the trailer intrigues me. Also, it has an Alan Tudyk.

Really? That can only be good, everything is better with an Alan Tudyk.

I've been downloading it because streaming doesn't work out here at all. I've been feeling eh about it, it hasn't gone and wowed me like Castle has.

The first episode was really underwhelming, just a rehash of the first mini-series that speed through all the major set-up in the blink of an eye, so there was no suspense or haracter development worth a damn. Second episode was a tad better. I'll probably keep it in Tivo for a rainy day.
