It seems impossible for me to search QT3 for a TV show with only one letter, so don’t stone me if this is a duplicate!
I was largely ignoring various internet ads I saw for this TV show, until I saw a preview for it before Paranormal Activity. My family were buzzing after the preview, apparently it was a movie or a mini-series from way back when that they remember enjoying. The preview seemed suitably creepy, though it appeared to be more oriented towards a movie than a TV series.
The first 9 minutes are on hulu http://www.hulu.com/watch/104096/v-a-first-look-at-v and bar a few skeptical acting moments; the premise seems interesting. I would like it to be an awesome old sci-fi reboot like BSG, but looks like it may be leaning towards Lost or Flash Forward territory.
Airs Nov. 3rd. ABC 8pm.
Also, I know nothing about the original series, nor what “V” stands for. I’m assuming it stands for something…so please keep significant spoilers out of this thread for people born less than 25 years ago!
I have fond memories of reading the novelization of the original miniseries. I had at that time not had any idea it had been on TV, and I was young enough that it may not have actually been any good. But I liked it.
All I know is that I hope the crazy chick from Lost (the mother of the rebellious motorcycle-riding fist-fighting high school kid) dies early on in the show. She can’t seem to emote anything other than “I’ve got a creepy secret” facial expressions.
The only thing I’m worried about with this is the fact they’ve stated its not a mini-series and they don’t have a plan for a fixed number of seasons. V is going to start well enough, but if it survives to a second season, I predict it will descend quickly into “what kooky plan have the aliens/resistance cooked up this week? Tune in and see!!” and suck unless the writers know where they are going and how its going to end…
The original two mini-series work precisely because they are mini-series.
