The only problem is that there may not be any surprises since it is basically a remake of the original 80s epic.

I liked the BG remake, more adult, darker, more dramatic.
I liked the original back then.

The original "V" was pretty bad....but...the lack of any type of special effects was the main reason. Hopefully they won't follow the hokey story line from the original series. Good special effects can help a bad story line somewhat...but I guess we'll see.

I love the remake of BattleStar...much better. The story had a lot more in it than the original one, plus the characters weren't like cartoon characters. And the women in the remake were much hotter!!!! Gotta love the blonde Cylon!!!! The prequil starts soon, beginning I guess with the movie Caprica...kinda shows how the Cylons got started ... it even makes one think a little.

I should alter my Battlestar comment. Liked the show greatly hated the ending.

For some reason, and I promise I had no idea and did not cheat, but it is exactly what I expected.

I guess you could say it had a predictable ending.



I had hopes that they would come to 1980 Earth and carry on from there.

"V" I remember that show, man I guess the writers can't come up with anymore original ideas with all these remakes coming out!!!

I remember a Good Lookin Gal eating a Live Mouse in the original...suppose it'll be a large rat this time around... Seriously though, V has great possibilities for a BIG HIT! Just hope they stay away from political statements and religious nuances.. I like my Sci-FI scary and straight up!:cool:

They're certainly not showing much in the trailers, I guess they don't want to refresh peoples memories about the 80s series.

The previews are making me feel a little more interested but not sold that this is going to be any better than the original yet.

they are going to ruin a good old series/show, like they always do.

Hopefully, it will be just different enough to make it interesting, but I don't expect any surprises, unless they were to reverse the circumstances and have us eat them instead!!!

I liked the original "V" and this one looks even better. I think I will give it a shot. If I don't like it then I will just delete it off of my DVR.

Will at least give it a chance. Could be good!
