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 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!
