    Default V

    So this new show starts tonight. I haven't done any looking into it and wasn't interested at all until I realized who was starring in it last night.

    Morena Baccarin.



    Very sad that she has short hair now. But I still almost...



    Anyone else going to be following the show? I got caught up on Flash Forward last night too. It's pretty good.

    Firefly is one of my favorite series. Right up there with Band of Brothers.

    I knew they were considering making a movie of Kenneth Johnson's sequel book to the original V, but I didn't know until very recently they were making a series that remakes the entire story. I'll still probably check it out, but it's disappointing to me that they decided to change things when the original story was pretty awesome the way it was.

    Sounds cool. I'm going to watch tonight. I need an interesting series to start watching.

    Edit: Ohmygosh I just looked it up. I'm so excited!

    The last thing I need is another show to watch, but I will definitely be watching. I loved the original miniseries, although the weekly series kind of sucked. I have no idea who this new alien chick is, but I know she's no Jane Badler. Mmm.

    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    I predict hoards and hoards of men having a crush on this woman because she is hot, alien (=weird, different), and in charge!

    You heard it here first!

    Agreed on all counts. I liked the first episode enough to keep watching for now. And I read they're only doing 4 episodes in the fall, more won't air til after the winter olympics.

    I thought the pace was a little too fast, but then that's typical of most modern drama shows. I think the original miniseries set an incredibly high standard though, I have to view the new one as kind of its own entity because if I spend too much time comparing it to the original, it will come off as a pale imitation. I have the DVDs of the original and The Final Battle, and have re-watched them quite often and never get tired of them. The scene with Julie making her "The visitors are NOT our friends! They've come to rape our planet and kill us!" speech and tearing off the side of John's fake face is one of the most memorable TV images of my childhood.

    I was kind of disappointed. First of all, the only thing it shares in common with the original is the name and the fact that giant spaceships have bad intentions. Even "V" means something different. And when giant spaceships appear overhead, two nerds are going to argue over the originality of Independence Day? Really?
