The Most Exciting One Letter Show On Television

Tomorrow, the reboot of the classic 80's mini-series "V" will begin on ABC (8\7pm central). We have a lot of fond memories of this show. One especially vivid one was the heated discussion of whether the alien baby would be human or alien (it as twins so they were both right).

We have high hopes for the show. Having watched the clips and first nine minutes it seems suitably creepy and has an ominous tone.  While original creator Kenneth Johnson may be hoping to make a low-budget movie some day, we're hoping that he stays out of it and this succeeds where other reboots have failed: Capturing the spirit of the show while updating weaker parts to make it stronger.

  1. I have mixed feelings about the remake. It looks cool, but I don't see much that is similar to the original series. They should've just renamed it. I think Johnson's version will be better.

  2. Dear Sir,
    I look forward to this reboot. Most of the time it's very successful and true to the original.

  3. Dear Sir,
    I disagree in the stongest possible terms to the last letter. The key to a good reboot is to be faithful to the original. Why change anything?
